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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2007 Bottle conditioned and purchased from the LCBO. Dark oak pour with a quickly fading white head. Smells of lemon and blue cheese. Taste upfront is moderately sour, but this is toned down by aggressive carbonation. As the drink flattens, the sour tone is enhanced, and the beer begins to resemble a red wine that has started to turn (but in a good way). The mouthfeel lets this drink down, as the carbonation is too intense and overpowers the flavour unless let to sit.

gottalottaibu (243) - charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 25, 2007
brownish red pour. decent foamy head. light aroma of malt and sour. light funk in the taste with cherry malt and oak. everyhing was balanced well nothing really tanding out. decent flanders style. expected it to be a bit more sweet. light bubbly mouthfeel. easy drinker and good initial step for someone unfamiliar with the style.

blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 15, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2007 bottle poured a dark deep brown in color with an initial two finger head that became a thick layer of tan foam on the beer. aroma is sweet, malt, raisin, apple, sweet fruit, and has very little in the way of wood. taste is light in the mouth feel, has some must, citrus, predominant sourness that just is not what i would have expected, has this strange twang on the tongue, good carbination, but on the thin side. this is my first sour ale and i just don’t really get this. warmed up to it after my tasters got accustomed but still not sure i really like it either.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2001
Dark red color, foamy head. Tart fruity aroma. Light tangy, acidic tastes. Spritzy. Quite a short, dry palate. I thought this beer was good, but timid.

Dark coca cola coloured beer. A bit sour malty taste. A bit flat............
