Palme (4258) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2012
0.33l bottle @ Braai Tapperij de Mug, Middelsburg. This is a blurry deep raw red-brown one with a small lightly sidesticking woody-brown head. It has a light caramelly-sweet aroma, some dusty chocolate in here, I also get some dark black ripe berries here. Not extreme, and my nose is getting all sorts of other smoky and perfumy aromas from the people sitting next to me, but I found the aroma in the beer quite nice. Oh, it was a really sweet one! Reminds me of a faro-lambic! Sugar syrup, not any bitterness to speak home about, hints of something acidic in here also. Not especially good, but this is one of those beers I will remember more of the story behind getting it - not so much for the flavor itself. 30.05.2012

robloc303 (268) - Erie, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Pours a deep chocolate color, with nose of resin, raspberry, chocolate, and vinegar. Very sour and like a corked or spoiled wine. Had to dump this one...

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2012
On tap at 8th St Ale House. Clear brown with next to no head. Aroma of light cherry, malt and mild sourness. Taste is mildly sour with mild cherry and not much else.

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Pours from a 11.2 oz. bottle a dark opaque ruby brown with a tan head that is less than robust. No lacing noted. The nose is sour cherries and dark fruit. The taste is mild; a nice balance between sweet and sour. This is not an over the top "sour" beer. Cherries carry through the finish and the mouthfeel is light-to-medium-light. Very enjoyable. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bullit (4481) - Burgos, SPAIN - MAY 21, 2012
Bottle from Venerables. Clear brown colour, beige head. Aroma is caramel malts, candy sugar, fruits. Flavour is caramel malts, fruity, brown sugar, bit of spices. Sweet finish. All in all quite artificial, made like a mediocre parody on a dubbel.

AlainG (2042) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
Bire brune opaque ayant une tte mousseuse se dissipant lentement. Des odeurs de vinaigre balsamique, de fruits rouges, dpices, de poivre ou encore de vieux bois en manent. Got surette, de cerises, cre, de vieux grains, de vieilles crales. Cest plutt sec en bouche. trange, je suis port la comparer une Duchesse de Bourgogne qui nest pas russi, ou encore au porter de la brasserie Schoune. Un peu surpris, mais tout de mme une exprience.
