Bottle. Pours clear tawny with a medium, creamy light tan head, medium retention and good lacing. Aroma is diacetyl, caramel malt, light fruit notes, and not much else comes through over the diacetyl. Flavor is diacetyl, lightly sour fruits, malt dominant and a sweet finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation. ryan (3185) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bile, vile, nasty shit sour, touch of nail polish. Raw sugar. Drain pour. Undrinkable. sonnycheeba (6561) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear copper with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is corn, butter popcorn, acidic notes, and apples. Flavor is a confusion of flavors muddled together. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth. ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Really nice deep red pour with a tan head. Aroma is vinegar, some slight cheese, cherries, dark fruit, a bit of band-aid. Flavor is sourish with kind of a sticky palate. Behind the sour are some fruit flavors. Not excellent but for $2.49 it's more than I was expecting. savnac (2656) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 2, 2012
22 oz bottle. Reddish amber with an off white head. Aroma of cherries, band aid and vinegar. Flavor is acidic vinegar and cherry with an overwhelming phenolic taste. Had to drain pour this, I couldn’t get past the band aid/phenolic character, at least it was cheap.

I think they had a bad beer and decided to remarket it as a sour! Im not sold they made thison purpose. It lacks even being sour. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - DEC 31, 2011

OK, so I’ve seen this bottle/brand in my store for quite awhile now. Hermitage is really hit or miss (mostly miss) but I was hankering for something new so.....
The beers strength is its appearance, and it pours out a beautiful, clear, chocolate-mahogany brown body, 1" dirty-white head with quick dissipation. Sitting there in my glass, it looks like a top-notch whiskey...looks great. But, that’s about where the goodness ends. Aroma has this odd maraschino-cherry, Sweet-Tart, fig juice, cough-syrup thing going on. It’s oddly intriguing. Flavor is pretty blech, with some odd cherry jam sweetness mixed with cider vinegar and chlorine. The odd thing is, the sweetness and acidic characters are all really toned down...watered down would be the better word. Really hard to enjoy this one, and to call it a Flemish Sour is a crime.
22oz bottle picked up at Bevmo Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 8, 2011
Appearance: Clear amber with a medium sized white head and some lacing
Aroma: Dusty caramel and fruity
Taste: No other way to describe what I tasted, puke
Terrible, footbalmed the rest of my glass and the rest of the bottle.
Thanks to Craig. This beer needs some work. There was toffee, cherries, and notes of vomit. Craig made the executive decision and footbalmed it (drain pour). douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle thanks to Craig. Pours a ruddy brown color with a medium white head. Craig unfortunately but aptly pointed out that the nose smelled like what the Brits call sick, and it did indeed seem like a funky sour rubber ripe mix. The flavor was not my thing; light sourness, rubber, sweetness. Something is off here, I just can’t say what. Diacetal and other infections? I don’t know but it wasn’t pleasant.
