patrick767 (4038) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 23, 2008
draft at OBriens in San Diego - Pours red with a very thin head. The aroma is mostly sour cherries and is quite good. The flavor is nice and sour with tart cherry tones and some sweetness for contrast. Its fairly light on the palate and overall enjoyable.

Typical sour, with a nice balance. Wanting to try Grand Cru so I can compare. Was reasonably priced for a Belgium, would recommend if you like sours.

Bartzilla (622) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 19, 2008
On tap at OBriens. Seemed a little flat, but that didnt deter me from savoring this fine, sour ale. Tasted a little musky compared to the Grand Cru, which is the only other Rodenbach I have tried, but this was a good thing. Great flavor profile. I expected no less. Delicious.

wetherel (1871) - Cupertino, California, USA - JAN 17, 2008
On draft at Churchills. Ivan gractiously gave me a sample. Red amber color. Microbubble head. Light sour aroma similar to a sour cherry. Fruity. Some funky feet in the aroma, which I love. Slick sour lacto mouthfeel. Leans sweet. Very drinkable and very delicious. Yum!

padrefan98 (854) - (San Diego) Santee, California, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Draft at Obriens. Some very sweet and sour flavors that I really liked. A long night of some pretty good sours had my tastebuds so puckered up.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Draft at OBriens. Reddish color with not much head. Aromas were tart cherry and raspberry. Flavors were more tart and some acidity. Fruity all the way. Pretty good stuff.

madquacker (1124) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2008
Yes, is all very interesting but please this is very overrated. No head. Dark red colour with a sour tart finish. I think this is trading off a reputation because is somewhat unpleasant to drink.

hapjydeuce (999) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JAN 13, 2008
UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 Bottled, pours copper-red color with some fine white lace and bubble formation. Flattens out pretty quickly, leaving pleasant tart vinous aromas. The nose is mostly light vinegar notes & wild yeast funk, with slight oak influence with noticeable hops. Light and soft flavors with a nicely balanced sourness, the finish has a note of toasted bread and citrus. Tingly carbonation excites the palate. Refreshing!

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2009 Pours a deep ruby brown color with a small soapy head. Aroma is very sour, horse blanket, and grapes. Taste is sweet, like a grape jolly rancher with hints of watermelon, little to no carbonation. Not as sour as I expected. Outstanding.
