750ml bottle $14. I like Ommegang beers but sometimes I don’t like springing for the more expensive offerings, this was an exception. Dark red-brown color, looks a little oily on top. Smells like a sour oud bruin, not bad. The taste is cherries, sour, good but it actually made me think about how much I like DeProef’s Zoetzuur and how much better of a beer that is for a dollar or two less. now I have to find some Zoetzuur, thanks a lot Ommegang!

On tap at vintner. Brownish red color with a tan head. Smell is fruity, full of citrus and cherries. Taste sweet and smooth, refreshing and easy to drink. Really nice sour kick too. Good stuff rocbyter (2118) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Moderate sour fruit aroma with hints of wood. Cloudy brown color with a small off white head. Sweet beginning with a full bodied four finish. JStax (6357) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Poured on draft. Pours a translucent brown with a whitish head of thin foam. Aroma is mildly tart. Can’t really pick up on much else, though. The sourness in this beer is odd. Its actually a little earthy. Maybe its more of a musty note than anything else. Taste is sour and the finish is long and dry. Everything about this beer is pretty subtle.

750mL Bottle, purchased at Kingstown Liquors - Wickford, RI. Aroma is a gentle, breezy fruit, with a light lactic punch and an afterthought of cherries. This is soft and a little light. There’s a low level balance of sugars, gentle acid, and a range of fruit flavors. Decent malt follow up. Overall, I though this was a little light, safe, and domesticated for a Flemish sour brown style. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2012
750ml bottle - Pours dark amber with a two finger light tan head. The smell is of sour cherries and wild yeast funk. It tastes sour, fruity, tart, but also has a smooth sweetness to it. Very good brew. burg326 (5479) - Florida, USA - APR 16, 2012
On draft at the Brass Tap Sour Breakfast, poured a light amber brown with aromas of sour cherries, and hey. Flavors of subtle cherries, that soured as I drank with some hay. Touch of tart aftertaste as well, a solid wild ale that isn’t overly tart. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Had this many times already. Aroma is slightly sour, fruity and some wood with a bit of mold. Mouthfeel is very slick which leads to a slight oily flavor. Some sourness and fruit and wood with a touch of spice. Not too acidic, not overly sour. Smeade (80) - Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2012
S: dark reddish-brown, tight carbonation, light tan collar, doesn't cling to the glass
A: tar cherry, slightly sweet, creamy-maltiness, almost smells like a little chocolate
T: mild sour taste, well-balanced between sweet & tart, great acidity, not over-powering like some sours that border a bile-like taste
O: a solid sour, a good introductory sour for those looking to try a something easy drinking with good flavor and balance
