Garnet body with a fleeting hed. Funky sour aroma. Oaken sour cherry flavor. Nice Flemish sour. Give it a try if you see it.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - DEC 11, 2010
very pleasing sour/wild ale, more of the wild side than the sour which is nice, the sour ales arent my thing. was surprised by the color, was thinking it was going to be more red than brown but its a deep brown color and matching aroma to the taste. was great with dinner, very refreshing and the abv is just about right to not be at all heavy.

My bottle got froze. So. Pours with I think is a damaged by freezing weird looking head, but still not bad: foamy, frothy, fluffy, sudsy and clumpy, that lasts forever and lots of lace. Color is a cloudy medium brown. Aroma is a bit fruity, tart, malt, and actually fresh. Flavor is malty, tart, fruity. Body still has some ice in it, so there you go. Finish is like flavor and not bad. Kind of tasty actually.

dogfish120love (1278) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 30, 2010
This sour pours a murky tea like brown, with no head. The aroma is rather oaky, with notes of vinegar. The flavor is somewhat sweet, but lacking in the sour department. Notes of apples and fruit dominate, with flavors bent almost toward what one would expect from a cider. At 4.5% this surely would be my session beer of choice if the price wasnt exorbitant.

Strykzone (7113) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pour is kind of fig colored and not clear at all. Aroma and flavor are vinegar, wood, and funk. Not complex at all which is a big detriment. A nice smooth beer to drink and one that has a nice flavor.

suurjuust (3256) - ESTONIA - NOV 26, 2010
Dark ruby red, almost no head. Aromas of musty berries, malt. Lively carbonation, watery mouthfeel. Notes of cherries, malt and water. Some acidity in the finish. The body is a bit thin, and the beer has less defining character than I expected.

koekiesbakker (89) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2010
Sweet with dark sugar. Sour, but not mindblowing. Bit of wood, fruity. Fairly easy drinking. Straightforward vlaams bruin.

Ruby pour with compact white head and lacing. Nose has a merlot, balsamic, and dark berry notes. Flavor is similar sour blackberry raspberry finishes sort of sweeter then id expect

rand (1610) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle 25 cl from Amstein in St-Lgier (CH). Dress dark red to garnet, low foam. Aromas of cherry, raspberry, vinegar and winey. The mouth is soft, but slightly sweetened, fruity, tart and woody. Notes of toffy and balsamic, finale dry and short. Very refreshing.

thirstyrabbit (1798) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 17, 2010
Small bottle wrapped in paper. Reddish body with a small head. Fruity and moderately sour aroma. It is quite one-dimensional. If it was stronger, it would be like a wine, but at 4,5% I dont see the point. To me, it feels like some juice.
