This was one very different brew for me. I’ve never had anything like it. Poured amber with tan head. Aroma of fruit, mostly cherries. Taste was extremely sour, mostly cherries. adrian910ss (2575) - Doylestown, PA, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Pours a dark orange bronze color with a medium frosty beige head. Aroma of rotting wood, sour apples and cherries. Taste is sweet and sour with a strong tarty feel. Cherries, apples and a bit of oak are in the flavor. Not bad, but was expecting a bit more. hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2007
This was tatsy and makes me want beautification really really badly. Brown coloured beer with a foamy off white head. Aroma has some of those sour cherries in it. Great flavour with lots of tart brett, some sweet and sour from the cherries, and some wine like hints (though I could be imagining it). amorphiss (35) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Batch 002 Bottle. Foam gushed from the bottle upon upening, but poured a nice clear copper-brown. Aroma is sour cherries, apples, wood. Flavor is absolutely fantastic! Wine, oak, sour, brettanomyces. This is really really nice! k4df4l (154) - DTown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Bottle - poured a murky ruby with a slick of foam. Aroma dominated by sour fruits and slightly musty but no funk. The flavor is immediately sour with a pronounced cherry tartness that gives way to light flavors of oak/vanilla, yeasty spice & brett vinous notes.

Expensive and unusual, this is not for anyone not appreciating tartness. White head on a golden body. Strong aromas, wine and cherry and wood. Complex taste of wine, cherry, wood. Balanced by malt, and while sour is not aggressive on the palate as I wouod expect. A sipper. Up there with the Cantillons but a top beer because of its similarity to wine?

3L bottle shared by drewbeerme at his wedding shower. Pours a clear glowing amber with a beige head. Nose of sour grapes, apples, oak, and brett. Whew that’s more sour than i expected. Grapes, pears, earthy, all around tart and oaky. The acidity is a little too much at times but this is a great beer. Big thanks to andrew for sharing this.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Bottle from Capones, thanks Stegosaurus. I don’t like flemish sours and this one doesn’t change my mind. Too bitter for my taste. It’s just not for me. I wont totally kill the ratings.

3 litre bottle, batch 2. Drewbeerme (also known as stripey) shared at his wedding shower. Red-orange with nice white head. Aroma was heavy brett, apple, citrus. Flavor was green apple, tart, a little acidic. Med body. F’n awesome. I loved this beer and thought it was pretty fantastic there was basically a never ending supply of it.

Bottle shared with Blankboy, biegaman, and Hogtown Harry, Harry’s bottle. Thanks for letting me crash your little tasting guys! Neat orange rust pour - thin slick white head. Love that colour! Really strong aroma - sour, cherry, cherry skin, vanilla, leather - complex and stunning. Taste is sour, acidic, almost a little wine like. Very quenching. No alcohol. Complex. Maybe just a tad too acidic after a while. A pretty stunning beer.
