Tranquillity (2322) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2008
Bottled. Dark red/brown, small beige head. Woody, sour aroma. Apples, pears. Tart. Taste like a fantastic sour ale should: sour, apples, vanilla. It’s dry and tart, but lack the woody flavours and some of the complexity that its big brother has. Very balanced.

A dark beer with little head. Taste is fruity and sour. Nice and smooth while going to the back of the throat with a lingering sour aftertaste.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2008

750 ml. brown, Belgian bottle. Corked and caged. Illegible date code on bottom of bottle. Poured out a deep amber color, with red highlights. Thin tan head fades quickly. Aromas are sour cherries, oak barrels, some tannic acids. Flavors are of sour cherries, oak barrels, some pipe tobacco. Thin body & mouthfeel. Finished sour and dry.

beerbiere (101) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2008
Clear sangria color, low carbonation, minimal head, low retention. Aroma of sangria, cherry, mango and iron. Tart and a litlle sweet with a faint metallic bitterness. Medium mouthfeel, finishes abruptly. It lacks the oakiness and tartness of the Grand Cru. Very accessible for a sour ale, not bad but Grand Cru does it better.

newbrewguy (145) - Mechanicsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Poured a hazy dirty brown color with little head. Dry fruity aroma, This was my first sour ale, really caught me off guard was much more sour than I expected. Once I got used to the idea of it be so sour it’s a really good ale small sips for me, very tart fruity flavors, almost like a malted sour candy. sweet.

yespr (45412) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
ZBF2008: From tap. Pours hazy and dark brown with a lacing tan head. Dry and light roasted malt. Flavour holds that rather fruity towards cherry flavoured Rodenbach yeast with a distinct ether note. Light roasted malt flavour too. Slight sharp spiced flavour towards the finish. Goes slight dry.

I had one sour ale before and I have been waiting to try another one for quite some time. This was a solid beer. Pours brown with a very thin head. The aroma is of sour fruit, mostly cherries. The flavor is only slightly sour...I was actually hoping for a little bit more mouth puckering from it. Still very good and drinkable though.

bhensonb (15187) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 7, 2008
250 ml. bottle from Corti Bros., Sacramento. Vinous, slightly sour aroma of cherry and dark malt. Mahogany color with a tan head that flattened quickly. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is a tad sour with cherry and oak. Not overly dry, but a bit astringent. Very good sipper.
