KAME (160) - California, USA - OCT 14, 2006
Pours a deep reddish brown with a thin white head. Lacing is minimal. Aroma of red vinegar and spicy maltiness, Flavor is malty sweet and slightly sour. Mouthfeel is fairly light and this is very easy to drink. Overall a nice brew.

mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2006
UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 [066-20061018] 250mL. Apple and grape aroma. Ruby-brown body with a long thick creamy off-white head and nice lacing. Tastes like a plate of flat fish, with earthy beet root and macintosh apples, served on a bed of watery pasta noodles. Crisp light mouthfeel, light-medium body. Can feel it coming together but not exactly as a nice flavour. (6/4/6/3/13) 3.2

[1085B-20080203] Bottle (w/ jerc). Sweet light molasses aroma surrounds itself in metallic hay. Hazy, dark brown mahogany body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Fruity cheese booze flavour strangely also hints at sweet leafy plant and green twigs. Medium body. In spite of those things detected, it was quite nice. (5/3/7/3/14) 3.2

Beerdedone (3408) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2007
Sampled bottle with stegosaurus. Pours a dark brown color with a little head. Aroma of sour cherries with a woody tinge. Flavor is intially sweet and finishes sour. Not bad for a flemish sour

Palidor19 (3189) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2007
The way I see this beer is the Flemish sour Ale to those who doesn’t like Flemish Sours. Its got a high carbonation, a little bit of malt flavor and only a pinch of sourness. Still very nice.

nearbeer (5461) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2008 330 ml in Mason quart. Dark brown with red highlights. Tan, medium-sized head that stays with you. Aroma is tart fruit and some slight vinegar. Taste is sour cherry, not as mouth-puckering as some FSAs, and dry. Just a touch of vinegar, the less the better for me. Palate is light, tingly and refreshing.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle: Dark brown with deep amber hues, large frothy light beige head, spotty lacing.   Nose of soft oak, slight vinegar, soft fruitiness.   Seems like Duchess light.   Soft tart start, malty, fairly sweet but not as sweet as Duchess.   Has a fruity aspect, moreso pale fruit skin with a unripened cherry flair.   Somewhat spritzy on the tongue, body is moderate.   This comes off as a lighter more unsweetened version of Duchess, along with less vinegar.   Not very dry at all, nor all that tart.   Actually, this one is rather boring.   Perhaps a good gateway for those who have never tried the style, but overall just a bit too weak.

jake65 (3944) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle: Amber pour with a moderate beige head. Nose is strong of fruits and sweet/tart. The taste is very mellow with sweet malt and fruit into a lighter tart finish. Soft (a little overly soft) character. Thanks to BuckDich for this one.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 7, 2007
The Dan Journal #59. Tasted Nov 2006. 12oz bottle. Light brown murky hue. Aromas of vinegar. Tart cherries and vanilla. Nicely malty with a nice sour tart fruit flavor. Little light for the style.

3.2
beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Pours with a thick off-white, tan lace. Redish caramel color. Hints of green apples, very malty taste. Finishes clean with no burn or aftertaste. Nice but not great beer.

3.2
lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Pours a deep maple syrup brown with little head. Malty aroma of apple, pear, oak, and sour notes. Flavor is a little underwhelming, but what is there is good. Nice sourness and dry finish. A little watery.
