Amber coloured with some carbonation and an average off white head. Very fruity, malty aroma, little acidic, very special. Full body. Finish is very enjoyable, little sour and very fruity again. This is a very good beer.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2008 Truely my favorite beer in the world. Drank a 1988 cellared one a few months ago. The sourness had mellowed out. No head. Very dark as compared to a recent brew. A true symphony of flavors in my mouth. Only problem...they dont sell this in Nashville!!!

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2006
Paper wrapped, 375ml bottle. Pours red/brown, dark, with a good amount of head. Smooth, slightly sour but subtley blended well with yeasty and bitter flavours. Very refreshing...this is the most "sessional" Flemish sour Ive had. I wish Id picked up more of this when it was available around here. Stupid me, Beautiful stuff.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Bottle... Clear, mahogany ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Fruity aroma with notes of must and barnyard. The flavor is a touch acidic and fruity, but sweet more than anything else. Alcohol is well-disguised. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Finishes fruity, astringent and a touch acidic.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2008 Bottle, 37.5cl corked. Thx to the owner of 3 Sm Rum, Reza. We were just about to leave the place when Reza told us to wait some more minutes as he would like to share a bottle of his favorite beer with us. I was a bit surprised when it turned out he wasn’t going to have anything for himself. A true beer lover, enthusiast and generous guy. The beer poured a slightly unclear copper body and a small, off-white head. Served a bit warm, without the temperature ruining anything. The aroma is lovely sourish and citrusy, with the alcohol showing itselves in a gentle way, and there’s also some horseblanket notes. Slightly caramel-sweet flavor, soon overpowered by a lemony sourness, and some horseblanket. Pleasantly tart, with some dark berries or dried fruits in the far back. Medium body. Lasting lemony sourness in the finish, with horseblanket and barnyard notes. A true beauty, complex, dangerously easy to drink, and really enjoying to drink. Rating: 8-4-8-4-16-4. (080709)

Bottled, 37.5cl champagne cork. (2005) Copper-colored, almost flat brew, with a small beige head. Acidic aroma with raisins, cherries, some yeast, cellar, fruits, mostly apples, and some alcohol. Lightly acidic on the flavor, with fruits, cellar, apples, prunes, sweetness and alcohol. Prickling and lightly astringent in the mouth. It has a long, fruity finish. A really lovely, tart beer with lots of different flavor and aromas. (060530)

Bottle, pours dark brown, thin white head, Fruity aroma, plenty of malt. Taste is of yeasty, fruity malts, bitter pallate, not a great deal of complexity here. Nice surprisingly good beer. Slightly sour. Very enjoyable.
