Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pour clear copper color with off white head. Aroma of sour cherries and some weirdness I can’t really describe. Tart cherry flavor with some caramel and some off flavors. Not exactly a Flemish sour. Medium body with modrate carbonation. Thanks Craig. IrishBoy (4199) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Bomber a gift from Kiapepito and Enniskillen they got at Bevmo Salinas. Nose is light tart cherries, brown sugar, and a little milk. Clear rusty red with a small beige head. Flavor is a little tartness mixed with cherries and a lot of metallic notes. Not near as good as their Saison I had last. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2011
I’m not even going to waste my time typing on this one. The fact that they call this a flemish sour just makes me want to laugh. It’s a complete mess, not good. nickd717 (4679) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Bomber from BevMo Sunnyvale. Will this be the best value sour ale I’ve ever had at $3.49 a bomber, or will it suck? Looks decent, deep crimson red in color with a small light beige head that leaves a film and ring around the glass. The aroma is not good. Well, there’s not much to it, but what there is is rubber and mildly tart cherries. Weird. The flavor is a strange, strange mix of cherry, root beer, and rubber bands. Holy crap this is crap. Medium-bodied with minimal acidity and average carbonation. For the style, this is damn near rock bottom. Sorry, but I think these guys need to work on their sour brewing a little more before they end up with something half decent. rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAY 6, 2011
A really good try at a sour ale. It has everything that you would expect from a sour. It could probably use a bit more time for crafting this brew but it puts up a fighting chance. Great malts.

22 ounce bottle purchased at BevMo in Natomas, CA. The aroma on this is basically the same as a York’s Peppermint Patty. Not much else going on...perhaps a bit of lacto, but this is really obnoxious. Transparent amber body with a manilla colored head. Slight fruity vinegary tartness to start, which then becomes very roasted, husky, and with a ton of chocolate malt. Don’t forget the butterscotchy diacetyl, either. Tastes like someone poured a little cherry juice in a shitty brown ale. Ugh. HughConway (831) - Washington, USA - APR 13, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear brown, limited white head. Sour taste, not much else. Not as horrible as some of the reviews suggest, but not much to recommend it despite the relatively low price. murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - APR 6, 2011
Poured clear brown, aroma of dark fruit, caramel, dates. Just a light sourness, quite strange. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 3, 2011
22oz bottle. Rating #23. Clear dark amber color with a dirty white head. Sweet sour cherry aroma, kind of odd really, some bubblegum kind of as well. Strange flavor as well, a bad sour taste, sweet vinegar flavor, more like apple vinegar. Not good. (1575) mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - APR 3, 2011
Believe the ratings. This is bad. Nothing Flemish about it! All the Flemish ales I have had were cloudy. $3.50 a bottle I had my doubts and my doubts confirmed. This brewery has had some successes but this was a failure. Classic European ales have character. This is phony. I poured mine out.............. To think I could have had a Schneider Weisse imported all the way from Germany for about the same price makes this beer a crime!
