thewolf (11110) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle @ Plan B. Pours a deep brown with a light off white head. Aroma is lightly roasted amongst a good dose of caramel. A little thin mouthfeel. Flavour is sourish, but nowhere near enough. A disappointment.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown colour with a small beige head. Sweet caramel bit sour malty aroma. Soft mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet with a pleasant soft sourness and roasty maltiness, some dark fruits and caramel.

kramer (4857) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2005
25 cl bottle, via BelgianShop. Pours a dark mahogany with ruby highlights, minimal quick disappearing head. Slightly acidic and sour nose with dark fruits, woodiness, and apple. Lightly sour flavor and finish, lots of fruitiness but lacking in complexity and depth. Medium bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel, a little on the thin side on the finish. Pretty decent overall, but pretty far down on the list of Flemish Sours.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2005
Dark brown/mahagony color, small head that leaves laces. Ligh sour, black berry nose. Slightly sour taste that seems to come from some strawberry taste. A bit thin and to fast diminishing taste.

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - NOV 22, 2005
Deep mahogany color, low tight dimishing head. Sweet caramelly nose with a slight sourness. Berry tastes, brown sugar, and a light woody end. Somewhat sour, but not really. Clear, straightforward and enjoyable.
