BMan1113VR (7921) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Bottle (which claims a bottled on date (should be a bb date) of 090414). Pours with a minimal off-white head over a hazed brown body. Red wine, raspberries, brown sugar, lacto, sour, earth, cherry pits. Taste is sour, wine, jammy, only a little bit of the sweet-meaty taste I hate is some traditional Belgian Flemish reds/browns. Lots of fruit notes. Not super sour, but maybe a 5/10. Dry. Pretty good. Light bubbles.

Bottle, thanks to troy. Vinegar, raspberries and other tart aromas. Light and watery flavor. Could use a little more oomph!

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Very dark brown pour with garnet tints. The head is small, beige, and frothy. The nose contains some dark fruits, cherries, oaky funk, acetic acid, and basement must. The flavor is juicy dark fruit, nectar fruit, and sour vinous notes. Oak and funk come through subtly. The palate is medium to full with low effervescence and a dry acidic finish. A bit underwhelming.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Bottle shared by Turd. Pours rusty. Tastes sort of rusty, too. Woody and slightly sour, but not really much of a Flemish Red or Oude Bruin... not sure what it wants to be. Weird.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Bottle shared by Turdferguson at the Carolina Crew tasting - thanks, Sam! Fairly uninspiring reddish-brown pour with minimal carbonation. Aroma is a bit flat too, with faint overripe grape and musty wood notes. Initially almost like a Flemish red taste, but gets dry and earthy soon enough, with moderate acidity but not a whole lot of character.

beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Sampled on 6/23/2010. This sour ale pours a deep reddish color from a 375ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet, slightly tart, with some wood, some must and some vinegar. A medium to lighter bodied sour ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, some cherries, some wood. There is a little bit of tartness and must in the background. Nice lively carbonation. A nice milder sour, its definitely a sour, but the flavors are milder and not as pronounced as others. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sour.
