Tap at Falling Rock. Pours red/brown with thin white head. Smells of cherry. Tastes again of cherry with thin roasted malt sweetness. Good balance with the sour. Finishes with long cherry.

boto (2062) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Draught @ Eulogy: This one pours a very dark, ruby red color. There was almost no head or lacing on mine. Nice sour aroma. Hints of cherries to it. The taste is quite good. It has a mainly sour malty taste, with some residual sweetness. Sour cherries and apples are prevalent, but not overpowering. Very Good!

Nephilium (1628) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2007
A nice tart aroma, with hints of oak and a touch of cherry in it. Pours a dark ruby color with a thin tan head that as it receded, left sheets of lacing on the side of the glass. Hmm... where was all of that tartness in the flavor. The beer comes across mainly sweet with just a touch of sourness in it. Just a touch of oak and cherries survive the sweet vanilla onslaught. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Overall, not something I’ll pick up again. There are much better Flemish Sours out there in my opinion.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Pours a amber colour with a medium tan head. Aroma is tart, fruity, and strong notes of cherry. Initial taste is sour cherry, plum, and dark fruits. Finishing tart and lasting cherry palate. Great lacing of the glass, great head retention, soft carbonation. Everything was perfectly balanced. This stuff rocks!

decaturstevo (5743) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 29, 2007
A liberal sample given to the wife at THall on tap. A sharp hard tart aroma of fruit. A flovor of tart furit cherries mostly I think. A tad of bitter fruit as well. Smooth carbonation and solid mouthfeel. A very good beer overall.

Capa (2566) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2007 Pours a deep ruby red with a medium, light tan head. Very nice looking beer. Aroma of tart cherries, vinegar, sour, and mroe fruit. Flavor is much less sour. Sweet instead of sour, fruit, some cherry. Finishes sweet with a light touch of tart cherry (finally!). Clean, crisp body. Enjoyable.

BelgianBeerGal (3670) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2007
UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 25cL bottle. Pours dark with a tan color head. Definite hints of red wine present, but does not detract from the taste. Interesting and likeable bier.
