morri (191) - NORWAY - MAY 3, 2013
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Tiny off-white head which vanishes almost immediately. Dark red body. Aroma of vinegar and apple cider. Quite sour, and also sweet at the same time. Dry down the throat, which suits the style well.

3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Served in my favorite goblet... good lord the smell of balsamic vinegar hits you hard. It pours a deep burnt brown with a medium sized, light tan head. Quite a "sour smell", somewhat reminds me of :La Folie, the first of this style I tried and so my basis of comparison. Mild for the first second, then carbonated and rough like cola. Rolls over the tongue a little thin, then coast the throat with a sweet plum, grape and apple syrup, before a neat transition to a sour finish.

Black, with a creamcolored head. Aroma from grapes, plums and some alcohol. Floral grapefruit flavor, red wine, fruyits, juniperberry, some cinnamon and with a sweet finish. Different and a bit hard to define.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Bottle. I’ve had this on multiple occasions now, and each time was different, so this will be a composite description. Dark brownish red, not unlike Cherry Coke. Aroma was sweet and sour and had a hint of vinegar. The flavor, on the other hand, had more than a hint of vinegar. Very ciderish in flavor. Sometimes, the sip is sweet, the next is sour. Aside from the cider flavor, there was a bit of darker berries and even a tinge of chocolate. Not bad for a first foray into Flemish sours.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Pours a deep brown with ruby highlights and a quickly dissipating soapy head. Aroma is mildly funky and acidic with notes of vanilla, cherries and anise. The body is med-light and spritsy. The flavors is med. sour with cherry and vanilla again. Finish is dry but with no bite. This needs more time and acidity. I would like to try a bottle of just the old ale. A bit dissapointing.
