Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2005
2004 bottles: 13% ABV. So reads the commercial description. And I hardly noticed... lkgDugfliudhn z... Anyways - fdzgncsz... It loooked the color of iced tea with a huge fizzy frizzy tan head that dissolves into itself fairly rapidlyyyy. This has a sinus-piercing nose, vinegary with a heavy, powdery, flowery hoppiness. The flavor is vinuous, sour cherries over candied sweet malt. The finish is qqqquite tart and eye-watering. And I nevver notised the avb fgdasffgr I like frgf...

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2005
Fresh, sweet and sour balsamic acidic aroma with a curious roasty note. Opaque dark copper with low tan head that recedes to partial cover and ring. Sweet balsamic vinegar, vinous, port-like flavours, and dark woody fruitiness. Medium body with low to fair carbonation. Bottle (2001 Vintage) sampled with Oakes, Rastacouere, St-Eric and Ungstrup.

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2005
2005 RSBG - 2004 Reserva. Sour aroma, fruity, yeastly. Very sour flavor, astringent. I wonder if it is infected? Not great, as a matter of fact, I am highly disappointed. I doubt that I would drink it again.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2008 2008-02-29. 2006 Vintage. Dark ruby tinged brown body with a small beige head and nice lacing. (3+). Sour lightly funky aroma, underlying malt and light funk. (7+) Fairly sour flavour up front, underlying malt, very light notes of wood. Levels of complexity beyong what I am picking up on. (7+) Average palate. Very solid, but not awe inspiring.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2010 2008 vintage botlle at t Brugs Beertje. Pours a cloudy brown color with ruby highlights and a medium to thick beige head. Solid aroma of yeast, sourness, fruits, wood and moderate sweetness. Excellent flavor of fruits, yeast, wood, sourness and moderate sweetness. The body is light to medium with a vinous texture and medium carbonation. Ive always liked this beer a lot, but I feel the 2008 vintage is especially good.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Beautiful, dark red body and a dainty white head around the edges of the glass. The aroma is incredibly fruity, with a lambic-sourness/tartness to it. The flavor is very tart as well. This beer is unique amoung other BSAs that Ive had! Nice, slightly sweet, slightly bitter well-balanced finish. Hints of apples in the flavor, along with some interesting spices I cant quite put my finger on. Very woody and earthy, probably due to the wine casks it was aged in. Surprisingly heavy, although the alcohol is well-hidden.

notalush (5836) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2005
2004 bottle - lightly cloudy, dark amber pour, with minimal white lacing, very low carbonation - explosive, woody, vinous aroma (probably the most wine-like aroma Ive ever experienced with beer), with background brown sugar and nutmeg - very much like a red wine, with tartness, dark fruit and pepper - a bit of oak, some far background cinnimon and toasted oat?, funky, cheesiness - earthy, medium-dry finish - this reminds me very much of New Belgium La Folie, only its even better! - a very unique beer and a must try for anyone that even remotely likes de dolle beers.
