Bottle, pours nice dark red, with lasting thin lacing and head. Wonderful sweet start and sour finish, perfectly finished. Glad I tried this one.

Aroma has hints of wine, medicine, and paint remover. Whoah! Head is tan colored and endures to the end. Color is a mix of red and bronze...beautiful. Sweetness dominates flavor initially, gradually overtaken by sourness; however, both sweetness and sourness fade from the palate quickly leaving behind little trace of the initial sweet/sour explosion.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2009 A clear red colour. Interesting aroma of sweet fermentet fruit. Taste of cherries and sugar. The sweetnes is copansated by the refreshing sournes. Could maybe have a stronger palate. A very intresting and tasty beer.

Looks rusty brown coming out of the bottle, but emerges in glass as a beautiful red with orange highlights. Thick mocha head retains a bit too well, suppressing aroma, but underneath it is balsamic vinegar and berries.
On the palate, it’s a raspberry vinaigrette drizzled over cranberries, field greens and pickled fruit and vegetables. Fizzy, sour, smooth and very refreshing.

Dark liquid, small head. Strange winelike aroma. Medium body, no carbonation. Taste is sweet and bitter.

Very different from other Fruit derived beer. Sweet fruity aroma with a taste of sour foremost followed by a bit of sweetness. Appearance best described as a tan frothy head on a redish brown cola colored liquid. It was very different yet very enjoyable. Recommend to people who prefer red wine over beer.

Pours a deep garnet red with a one finger beige head. The initial aroma is of red wine followed by expected Brett funk, and hints of straw, cork, and leather. Wow, huge plum flavor right off, followed by cherry candy and chocolate covered raisins. Hints of oak. I would prefer a more assertive Brett character to balance the sweetness a bit. Zero hop presence on this one. Medium body. Could be a good beer, but needs balance; as it is it’s cloyingly sweet. Perhaps this could be put down to an error in the blending process. Not a swigging or session beer by any stretch. This is one to be shared, and sipped, with friends.

Hmm. This is likely the first Flemsih Sour Ale that I have tasted. Pours an unusual metallic almost sparkling brown with a touch of red. Nice head forms with off white bubbles. Aroma is quite a unique combination of cut wood with old cheese and a dash of cooking sherry or port wine. Starts with a sugary sourness almost like a "sweet tart" and then finishes with a effervescence reminding me of a cherry soda. All sorts of complexities in the flavor with sour apple, dark chocolate, smoke, ginger, black cherry, notes of cedar and more. Like a soda with a medium to full body. A truly unique brew and a treat for me on this night.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2007 This one is a typical beer in its style, initially very spicy and fruity, and more bitter and sour later on. Very surprising when you drink this one for the first time.
