espenra (1015) - Kurland, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2008 25cl bottle from Barley Wine. It poured a dark red colour with a medioum big foamy head that settled down fast in the glass. The aroma is massively sour with huge notes of vinegar and hints of cherry. I know sour ales are supposed to smell like this, but this is just not a very inviting aroma. The flavour is bitter and tastes of cherries, apples. It has a short aftertaste.

Dark red amber pour. Some sour cherry notes with hops thrown in the mix. Strange vinegar-esque/oaky flavor on the palate. All in all pretty decent.

750mL cork and wire. Finally getting around to it. Pours very dense, thick, and murky. Cannot see through it at all. Got a small head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is a thick, very balsamic-like, cherry-aceto-woodsiness. Taste is a bit sweet, cherry-cola, with more of a stinginess, rather than sourness. But a sour and aceto aftertaste. Finishes rather easy. Not as sour as the Grand Cru and a bit more crude. But overall still a damn good Flanders Red. It took me a while to like it, the GC was always a fav but this was hard because of all the balsamic flavors. I guess I have learned to love it.

A gift from Peter who works in Brusles but wisely lives in Leuven, tasted at Delirium. Nicely sweet and sour with oaky overtones. A winner.

I hate sour beers. I really do. But, this one is definitely one of my favorites. It’s not overblown. it doesn’t taste like vinegar. It’s lightly soured, refreshing and easy to drink. Classic.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 29, 2008
Poured a chestnut brown body with a very quickly diminishing, off white head. Light balsamic vinegar, cranberries, and apples on the nose. Tasted of sour apples, lemon citrus, and a hint of white vinegar, pleasant. Bubbly and medium palate, watery, goes down easily. Good sour ale.

A solid drop, but too late to savour after dinner, as I did. Not so complex (obviously) it finishes with a TM sour finish. I prefer Duchess to this, but thats a personal preference. enjoyable

25cl bottle in local pub, very refreshing complex volatile fruitiness of wine,a bit sourish but just fine.

beninak (1) - , Alaska, USA - NOV 26, 2008 does not count
The bottle I got had an extremely low carbonation level. Poured nearly flat, with a dark amber color and no real head to speak of. Had the aroma of "sour patch kids" candy. Flavor was mildly sour, yet complex , light and refreshing at the same time. I brought this beer home from Belgium, wish I had brought more than one bottle
