Bottle: Filtered.
A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

Tap at the Tiger. Preface this with me not really being a sour fan, yet. And that when I ordered it I didnt l know it was a sour.This poured dark brown with a thin white head. The nose was a bit scary, vinegar, and dirty socks. Pretty sour flavor, nicely carbonated, and yes tart. A bunch of berry flavors popped out too. Nice dry finish. Slowly but surely my taste buds are maturing, lol.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2009 Bottle. Brownish red color.Beige head. Sour ales are really not my type but since I never tried it before I took a bottle. Fruity acidy taste. Rather complex. Not bad

Pours an absolutely gorgeous deep runy color with a very small white head. Aroma is cherries, sour-wood and plum. The flavor is sweet and tart all at the same time with a really nice dry kick at the end. Really a wonderful Flemish sour.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2008
Bottle - 33 cl. The nose is rather vinous and vinigar-like with burned notes. The head is light brown and the body has theis deep brown with a redish edge. I taste grapes, hay, sour winegums and glue. It has a buttery and sparkling feeling in the mouth. Must admit that sour-ales doesnt belong to my favorites...

This is a very palate cleansing beer. It is very carbonated and leaves a very sour taste in your mouth. A little too sour for me but over all a great beer.

Im sorry but I just dont get this type of beer. Reddish with a small head. Vegemite smell and a very sour and tart taste. Grows on you slightly.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2008
750ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby red with a firm brownish head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, dominated by cherry with added bits of sour dark fruit, wood, and perhaps a bit of spice. Taste is relatively full and very tart, with a strong and sour flavor of cherries and wood. Very strong but not unpleasant by any means; just think of a strong IPA, only fruity instead of hoppy.
