toccata (70) - grembergen, BELGIUM - NOV 8, 2005
Clear amber color. Small white foam. Malty slight sweet nose, fine sourish wood aroma. Cleen swee-sour woody taste. Nice balance, fresh complex finish. Very nice beer.

joergen (28992) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2005
Bottled. Clear orange coloured with a small off white head. Acidic aroma of wood, glue and red wine. Flavour of glue, wood, fruits and red wine. Funny, but not my favorite flemish sour ale.

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2005 (Bottled) Dark amber color with a sparkling look and a tight, small head with hints of lace. Sweetish, malty, fruity and tart aroma. Caramely-malty, but also quite vinegary-tart and fruity flavor. Medium-bodied, sticky-sugary, fizzy-carbonated palate. Basically a quite pleasant sour ale, but with too much sugar to be truly enjoyable.

TBone (18106) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2005
Bottled (BB 08/2005)
This is called Caves "Het bier van Lier". Copper brown, small firm white head. Strong sour fruity nose. Sweet, sour, fruity, a bit earthy.

Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2005
Bottle. Amber colour with a small off-white head. Sweet sour fruity aroma and taste. Medium body and a sweet light sour finish.

skortila (5970) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2005
Aroma is winey, fruity, bit wooden, but mostly fruity.Clear, red-brown coloured with a thin, off-white head. Taste is sweet, slightly sour fruity with a woody undertone. More vinegar/winey towards the finish. Acidic. Refreshing sour ale, slightly sticky.

Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Remember having this for the first time on tap on a hot summer’s day in Lier, where it’s the local beer. Dark golden with a nice head. Presumably filtered. Some wooden notes, with touches of roasted malt showing through. Sweet’ n’ sour with emphasis lying on the sweet side. 120697

maeib (8751) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2005
Bottled. A reddy brown coloured beer which is quite flat looking. The aroma has some tart raspberry fruity together with some woodiness. The taste has some fusty old woody notes together with some sour fruit. Quite middle ranged for a Flemish Sour in that the sourness is not so pronounced, but still a nice beer.

fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2005
Beautiful copper color; huge creamy head; nice perlage. Cellary vinegar nose. Very sweet, malty, with the typical sourness. Not as complex as my favorite Duchesse de Bourgogne, but delicious!

omhper (25570) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2005
Bottled. Hazy amber. Aroma of acidic grape juice. Dry and lightly balsamic. Citric acidity that is balanced by toffee and saccharine sweetness. More fresh and intense than complex, but I love this beer!
