thedm (5942) - Fredonia, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2007
This 2005 green glass corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a hazy with floating yeast chunks typically carbonated dark brown colored body and thick foamy lacing. The aroma was sweet lambic like dark malt and sour. The crisp and clean mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of sour lambic like and crisp mild brown malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle. Pours a muddy brown/amber with a small light tan head that fades to a ring and leaves no lacing. Aroma is acidic with hints of tart cherries, light caramel, tart apples, yeast, and light herbal spiciness. Taste is slightly sweet with mild acidity and hints of cherries and caramel. Medium thin mouthfeel that finishes somewhat vinous. Very good.

From bottle pours brown with a small amount of head. Nice tart flavor with a good finish.

MrBunn (2764) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Bottle... 2005 stamped on the cork. Just from the outside looking in you can see the ammount of floaties waiting to be unleashed into a nice glass. Pour is a dark brown, and a lot of the floaties escape into the glass. Right now they are rollicking around being pushed all over the place by the carbonation that is pouring up from the bottom. Head is smallish, especially considering all the carbonation. Aromas are complex but subtle: caramel malts, a promise of something a little tart... maybe like a tart cherry aroma, some brown sugar, some dried fruits, etc. Flavor is fantastic. Starts out with a brown sugar and dried fruit sweetness, but the sugars arent sticking around long and they are replaced by a tart (green apple/pie cherry) finish.

Sampled at the 1st annual Stone Sour Festival 2007. One of my favorite styles of sour. Brownish in color with sweet sour tastes.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2007
375 mL, with too many floaties. I love yeast at the bottom, but not so much that I can only decant half the beer. Muddy brown with a full Belgian foam. Aromatically mediocre. Its very applely, with a blend of granny smith and red apples. Also hints of banana bread. Definately more sweet than sour, and a beer thats rumored to have gone through numerous changes the past decade. Maybe this was once a classic, but that was before my time. Now its just a sweet, drinkable, approachable brown ale. It has a unique taste, but is just too sweet and one dimensional.

scura sapore agrodolce forse piu tendente al dolce ma bilanciato buon corpo quasi vinoso

crosswalk (1) - USA - JUL 24, 2007 does not count
A wonderful combination of Flemish sour ale and malty brown ale making it an incredibly complex and easy to drink ale. Kept reminding me of Lindemans Peche lambic ale.
