2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle. Smell is sour grapes and butter. Dark red body with lovely white head. Taste is pungent sour half & half, butter, some cider. Brutal on the palate. Never had a flemish sour before, and I may steer clear of them in the future. Good lord.

Flaske. Ikke min type øl, men en flot surhed i fohold til sødmen fra rørsukkeren, som tydeligt træder igennem. Ikke så ringe endda.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated 8/4/07. Dark reddish purple coloring. Medium sized white head that settles to a thin film. Leaves behind a spotty lacing. Aroma is of sour apple cider, sweet caramel malts, pear juice, and yeast. The smell is really quite appealing. The flavor is sweet and sour, with sweet caramel malts melding with tart apple cider. Body gets a bit syrupy as it warms, which combined with the carbonation level makes it almost soda-like. Everything is fairly appealing and well done, its just a bit too sweet for me. Would make for a good desert beverage, though.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

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.
