UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 Dark ruby color - thin head. Some caramel malts with a sour wheat-ish finish and a bit of spice. Gets better as it warms. Not one of their better beers though.
RERATE: 2/12/07 - Hits me a lot better than before - has a nice hint of fruit (cherries, maybe a bit of lemon), some caramel sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice, dense, light tan head of fine bubbles. Creamy in top. Soft aroma with bread, pears and a good helping of malt. Color is a slightly cloudy brown/mahagony. Sour flavor but not overpowering. Fruity, with very little wheat present. Finish is tart and leaves a thin puckering film in the mouth. Not exactly what I expected but a decent beer none-the-less.

Malty aroma, sourness, fruits, bubblegum. Pours a cloudy orange-brown, off-tan head. Satisfying sweetness, chocolate undertones, tartness in the finish. Mouthfeel is enjoyable despite low malt. An excellent weizenbock.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sour, yeasty Flemish sour-like aroma. Cloudy, light brown colour with decent tan head that recedes to ring. Sour, lightly acetic malty flavour with nice roasty charcoal finish. Body is fairly light but mouthfeel is quite full perhaps due to carbonation. Enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere. Bottle.

Pour is a rather ugly color, a dark, translucent brown with a significant creamy, beige head. Aroma is yeast, citrus, raisin. Flavor is quite sour with lots of citrus (acidity) and dark fruits. The first sip is just an explosion of fruitiness. Finish extremely sour with virtually no bitterness. Really unique, and very tasty. Above-average richness. I’m really surprised at how many people (especially high-ratings-count people) have given this drink absolutely horrible ratings. I am really impressed by this; it’s one of the more unique beers I have tried, and I really like it. The first ounce is better than the last, though; I think the sourness starts to overpower the fruit as you get through the beer. Oh, and I wouldn’t have suspected this was anywhere even close to 8.7% alcohol. Nice stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: a hazy, rich autumnal crimson color, and a nice, toasted, creamy head.
Aroma: mmmm, nice, deep and delirious, fruity, spicy, wide open and delicious, instantly reminding me of Aventinus. That's always a nice thing.
Taste: plenty of it! Tantalizing, mouthfilling, happily coating the palate, leaving behind spicy, grapey flavors. A bit light going down, but never lagging with the flavor. Medium bodied, nicely textured...they'd have to go a little further with it to make it outstanding, but this is a tasty treat and a nice stab at the style.
