SteC (140) - Oostende, BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2007
This Flemish sour ale is in my opinion not the best in its kind. It has a beautifully dark red body, with a nice white pearly head. It tasted the typical sourness, but I missed a bit the finish, which was too empty for a flemish sour ale.

jonno (2771) - JAPAN - FEB 2, 2007
Pours beautifully, with a dark, red body and large head. Has a lovely, bitter smell, almost like sake!! The taste is not a delicious as expected. A tad bitter, with a sweetish finish, although nothing truly remarkable

3.7
TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 28, 2007
Bottle at The White Horse on Parsons Green (London), a cloudy brown with a filmy head. A warming malt aroma with touches of yeast. A very rich and sweet malty palate. Full bodied and smooth, but a little carbonation that works well. Fruity flavour with hints of chocolate.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JAN 27, 2007
Pours beautiful deep red. Nose and flavor has a lot of dates, plum and raisins. Especially rich on dates. Very sour, has almost a citric and cider like sourness to it. Not familiar with this kind of beers (didn’t even know of them), but this was a nice curiousity.

3.3
Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2007
Brownish with a small off white head, almost tannish. Sticky spots of lace. Sour aroma of grapes and malts. Some caramel notes. The flavor is tart and a touch dry. The sourness flows into cherries and again some malts. Body is crisp and the finish is a touch jaw clenchingly tart.

3.5
BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 26, 2007
Bottle: Pours a dark copper brown scotch color with thin head and decent lacing. The nose is ripe and fruity with some oxidized caramel malt, light balsamic vinegar (not the sour part) and cherry notes. The flavor is balanced with a tart and snappy sweet impact with a smooth malty creame mouthfeel. Finish is a bit metallic. Overall it’s not quite that memorable, but it’s still a tasty beer.

jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Bottle thanks to HogtownHarry. Poured a deep red body with decent size head and alot of head retention, looked great. Aroma is of grapes, plums, similarities to a red wine. Flavor had plum, grape, and cherry qualities to it with some yeast being present. Enjoyable.
