sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2006
Nice, clear, deep red color with a small, bubbly head. Sour-sweet aroma with oak and cherry hints. Oaky, sweet-sour, quite balanced flavor with pear hints. Light to medium-bodied palate with lemonadey carbonation. A quite nice, easy and balanced oud bruin.

Boutip (6139) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2006
Bottle: Poured a dirty brown color ale with a huge off-white foamy head with pretty good retention. Aroma of sugar and tart cherries is quiet interesting. Taste is very refreshing with a well balance sourness covered by some sugar and some oak. Definitely not as great as Rodenbach Grand Cru but very interesting nonetheless and I would love to have access to this as a session ale for those hot summer days.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2006
Clear, blood red with brown streaks and a thin, quickly diminishing tan head. The aroma is fruity, slightly acidic and malty. Cherries, plums, apples, caramel, toasted grains, light oak (is this even finished in barrels?), some residual sweetness and a hint of red meat. The body is moderate, but perhaps a little on the light side. In the mouth, the sweetness starts off the experience, but a bit of light acidity comes out near the end. The sweet fruity flavors are the dominate player here. The acidity is evident but doesnt do a whole lot and isnt as sour as I would like. It seems more like a session sour beer and a good one to get people introduced and acclimated to the style. However, in my advanced stages of enjoying sour beers, it wasnt sour enough. Its actually tasty and well made, but not something Id drink all that often. Thanks a lot Martin; it was a treat!
