Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Pours a reddish brown with little to no head. Aroma of sour funky vinegar cidery goodness. Flavor is sour, cidery, fruit, vinegar and much more. Very easy to drink and quite refreshing. More please.

LilBeerDoctor (3931) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Bottle at the Peculier Pub (it was called Rodenbach Red on the menu, causing me to hope, in vain, that it was the Redbach but alas). Pours a dark red with no head. Aroma is tart and funky. Flavor of tart candies, very sweet. Pretty similar to the Grand Cru, maybe it’s a little sweeter. Good beer though!

Plovmand (8317) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2008
On tap. Pours dark reddish brown with a creamy beige head that lasts till the last zip of the beer. Acidic aroma of sour cherry and malts. Flavour is a bit sour with dark berry notes. Tart aftertaste.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 18, 2008
Bottle from BevMo Mission Valley. Pours a clear dark ruby/brown with a one finger light tan head. Aroma is very acidic with notes of sour cherries, oak, and a little dark fruit. Taste is very tart at first lending way to oak, cherries, light caramel, and vinegar. Medium thin mouth feel that finishes dry and tart. Not as good as th Grand Cru but still a great sour.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2008
Large bottle from trade with RCL. Thanks Ray! Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a small off white head. Aroma of berries, oak and sherry. Taste is slightly tart and fruity but exceptionally well balanced. Flavor is semi sour but not overwhelmingly so. This is very nice and easy to drink. Has a dry, tangy and crisp finish. I liked this sour ale a lot!

moseslikesbeer (183) - conestoga, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2008
bottle. Didn’t like this at all. I think it may be safe to say that I’m not a sour ale fan! Nice light brown color. Smelled like a cherry cobbler. I didn’t taste the oak at all. The cherry was to over the top! Left me with a bitter beer face for at least a minute and I could still taste this even after a chaser. This was more like a dessert than a beer.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Large bottle with a reddish brown pour and small foam head. The sour cherry and wood texture of this was relatively clear, a little over the top. Complex and smooth for the flemish that it is but just not liking the power of sour.

Appearance: Dark red, some brown. Tiny amount of shortlived head. Aroma: Sour fruit, cherry. Wood? Taste: Quite sour, cherry. Quenching. Info: 250ml bottle, 5/7-2007, 177/500
