Originally sampled on 9/1/0/14. "Not sure which batch this came from, just says its a "flemish sour ale aged for one year in oak barrels".Poured a brown body with minimal head and almost no lace. Aroma had a tart cherry presence, sour funk as well as some oakiness. Medium-bodied, smooth thanks to oak, slight sweetness on back end as well as some woodiness, dominant profile is tartness of the cherries and green apples. A decent sour bite, with enough malt to balance it out. I like this beer as the sour/tartness is the dominant taste profile.A gift from Brandon at D & Q mini mart in Houston Tx, Thanks Brandon!!

33CL bottle consumed today. usa distro Dark red maroon color, thin appearance, almost no head. Smells like balsamic vinegar and lemon juice with grapes and prune juice. Well, this is incredibly sour…like lemon juice put into a raisin and prune and blended with oak chips. This is very sour. intense. lemon juice, prunes, kiwi sour, peaches. oak wine tannins, really interesting but insanely sour.

Palme (4647) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
0.33l bottle. This one pours a cloudy deep plum red body with a small quickly sidesticking off-white head. A bit different on the nose. Nuts, fish stock, a little oak, licorice, res dark berries and something dark slightly toasted. The carbonation level is average+ and the mouthfeel is light oily and almost sticky in a sour way? Like these flavors. You can say what you want but this reminds me a lot of the first batch really. Perhaps a bit milder and more mellow. Wood, sour berries and something light spicy. Warming slightly vinegar like aftertaste that’s leaving a mild heartburn. Yeah, I like the Freddy’s. 22.06.2012

Tap at Max’s 4/27/14. Burgundy brown body. Wow. Unique sour. Oily. Deep sticky sour cherry oak tones. Cloyingly sticky, sour, sweet. Balsamic vinegar notes all over it. Sort of imperfect, really an odd creature. Different oily sourness. Balsamic overload. A sample size was more than enough.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Pours Black. Pure black light will not pass through this beer. Smells slightly smoky, cherry. Taste of bitter lemon. Bitter grape. Bone dry finish. Not for a weak palate. One of the bitterest beers I've ever had. Really good beer!

Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pours unclear dark roasted chestnut with a beige head. Aroma is earthy with the wild yeast notes. Flavor brings some smoke and barbecue with big wild yeast and nail polish remover.

thornecb (5856) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Pours the funkiest looking thick chunky pour I’ve ever seen. Mocha head with excellent retention increases to fill tulip. Meat and sour fruit aromas. WTF - difficult to get under the thick syrupy head. Tart with dark cherry and grapes upfront leading to a puckering oak and leather finish.

hopdog (12208) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 750ml bottle. 2012. Think pour that almost looked gel like. Aromas of tart dark fruits, vinegar, oak, and earthy. Tastes of vinegar, tart fruits, cherries, caramel, and vanilla. Slightly sweet with a tart finish. Thick body.

On tap. Dark brown with almost no head. Huge floral, cola, caramel, wine barrel, oak and vanilla aroma. Very bright full bodied palate. Tastes of sour grape, roasted grain, lemon, vanilla and oak with a dry, acidic, lip puckering citrus finish.

slight beige head that disappears without lacing. dark red colour. aroma has some notes of leather and something i get with of the alvinnen beers (perhaps the morpheus yeast?). taste is sour, leather, ash with a rather peculiar slight astringent aftertaste (wood?). resembles their morpheus wild but this is milder imho. the abv is quite well hidden. bottle 33 cl
