Bottle. Pours a dark mahogany brune in the glass with a thin off white lacing. Aromatic character of lightly tart cherries, light barnyard blanket, a slight wood aged character. Thin spicy yeast but a strange lingering fruitness that wouldnt normally be ever so present in a sour ale. No etoh in the finish. Eh. ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Thanks to Solan for this!!! Brown pour with plum colored hues. Fizzy khaki head. Nutmeg apple, and vinegar on the nose. Fruits and yeast up front slightly acid finish combined with notable hints of oak. I agree with beerbill this would an excellent "gateway" sour beer hapjydeuce (1001) - Carlsbad, California, USA - DEC 12, 2008
Bottle from Pizza Port Bottle Shop. Clear ruby brown color with fizzy beige head. Mild cinnamon spice and balsamic aroma. Sweet and fruity malt flavor with a touch of raisin and baked bread. Finish is nicely covered with oak wood and wild yeasts. Your typical Flemish sour ale. Peppery, acetic finish, mild sourness. Enjoyable. timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Poured almost brown with reddish hints. White head, with a small amount of lacing. Fairly floral aroma, hint of malt and fruit. Taste is much more fruit, subdued a bit by malt, then finished through with some sour fruits. Not overbearingly sour though. Maybe the barrel aging mellowed this out a bit. Normally this style is way too sour for me, but this was actually not bad. Could see this pairing quite well with a meal. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2008
Bottle, Poatersgat. Rich dark ruby with flecks of lace and a dissipating head. Soft acetic aroma piquant with berry fruit, strawberry hints over faint dark malts. Bittersweet sour, berry fruit and apple edge softening into brown sugar, maybe liquorice, faint chocolate afters. Some dryness in there. Tingling carbonation with a sprinkle of sherbet. Mellow. Could do with the sour turning up a notch.

11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a mostly clear brown with ruby highlights around the edges when held against the light. Moderate off-white head that quickly faded to a ring and left a thin line with each sip. Pleasant aroma of sour cherry with some mild oak as well. The flavor is lightly sour cherry with some oak. Well carbonated and light on the palate, which suits this beer quite well. This is an enjoyable sour ale that would make a good entrance beer for someone who wants to try this style. JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Brown in color with a mildly sour aroma that has some light cherries and wood. Dark fruit flavor, light wood, and a sour finish round this one off. Decent, but sub--par for the style IMHO. orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2008
This beer falls off on the mid-palate there’s no finish. Nice color, nice aroma of brown sugar ( I think) and vinegar. kind of a card board after-taste. Definetly not loving this. Slight cherry taste on the palate. This is PAASSSS in the future! Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2008
This was my first beer within this style. Shared a 75 cl bottle with a friend. Aroma and flavour was sour with apples, oak, vinegar, quite a lot of acidness. NosirIwont (2530) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear, dark ruby/brown with a beige/light brown head. Nice lacing. Aroma is sweet, fruity and acidic. (Red) wine notes. Really nice. Flavour is acidic, but not as much as the aroma, and it’s also quite (dry) bitter and malty. Didn’t like this combo too much at first (would have liked it to match the aroma more), but it grew on me, and I ended up appreciating it. Slight metallic notes and notes of plums appear as it warms. Finish is a dry red wine-bitterness. Overall a quite nice brew, which was on the brink of becoming cloying, but pulled through. 08-10-08.
