esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Reddish amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of fruit, apple, caramel, sweet malts thats a sour. Taste of a cinnamon apple, caramel with a mild sour and alcoholic finish that is somewhat sour. My first sour ale I guess I thought it would be a bit more sour - not that I wanted it that way.

bottle. Pours deep brownish red with a small off white head. The nose is caramel, plum, and raisin. Def. sour taste. Carbonation is nice and stron on the tounge. Easy to drink but not my cup of tea. Im sure those that enjoy ciders would also enjoy this.

Cybercat (5387) - Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2008
This comes out of the tap a beautiful opaque chocolate brown, very appetizing. Strong aroma is more like a hard apple cider than a beer. Flavor is mouth-filling and pleasing; apple taste dominates, and there is a hint of hop bitterness. Finish is very smooth and cider-like.

My all-time favorite! Sweet without being cloying, more complex than many single-malt scotches I enjoy, just... wow. The most interesting, complex, enjoyable, unique beer Ive tasted in 15 years of drinking and brewing. A must try.

Enjoyit (3790) - Vadum, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2008
reddish brown of color with a nice foumy beige head. A sour aroma with notes of cherries, fruits, caramel and oak. A flavor of cherries, sour, caramel and red berries.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle, from Noel Cuveliers, Abele. Warm red-copper, off-white cap of fine head. The earthy, noble-rot smell of a very well-aged Christmas pudding. The flavor seems at first to be rather at odds with the gravitas of the aroma. Very delicate, very light. Plum and cherry pit tartness, softly sweet leafy malt, very light body. The contrast between nose and mouth persists, but they seem to come to some kind of understanding anyway. Lingering cherry perserves. I think the subtlies of this beer would shine with a touch less sweetness, but a flavorfull, interesting beer as is.

TheShat (131) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2008
I had this on draft. A fantastic yeast/ sour aroma with a hint of fruit. A refreshing sour flavor mixed in with plum and finishing with raison. Tasted almost like wine. Great!
