Very nice example of a Flemish sour ale, reminiscent of the retired Rodenbach Alexander, but with slightly fuller mouthfeel. You either like it or you hate it. Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Yellowish golden with a nice, dense head. Starts malty sweet but quickly gets drier to end on a hoppy finish. 021199 Oakes (19714) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
Hazy amber colour. Fruity (mainly cherry) aroma, a little bit woody as well. Candyish character, a little grapey. Sweetish with a hint of sour. A little on the fizzy side. Ferris (17946) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2014

A: The pour is a hazy amber-ish color with a nice khaki colored head.
S: Plenty of sour cherries right off the bat. A bit of vinegar, some lactic notes, and a hint of malt sweetness as well.
T: A really solid acidity to the flavor which keeps this beer really "bright" and easy to drink. Good cherry notes along with a bit of sweetness that goes well with the sourness. Not too much oak, but a decent dryness and tannic component.
M: The body is medium with a very lively carbonation and a dry finish.
D: I haven’t been all that crazy about a lot of the De Proef beers, but this one was very nice. I’ll have to see how the bottles in my cellar hold up. bhensonb (16257) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Aroma of cherry and yeast (out of the wine fridge). Lots of beige head that lasts. Red cherry wood color. Tastes of sour, cherry, wood, yeast, earth. Hops dance lightly; very lightly. Definitely not sweet. The finish is lightly sour with fruit, and any bitterness is slight. A sipping drink. The cherry seems to enhance as the liquid warms.

750 ml bottle poured ac clear reddish copper with a large lasting peach colorerd head. Aromas of sour fruitiness, some apple notes and yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp.

Bottle shared at a sour tasting at Noam’s office. Cloudy red-amber with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, some cobwebs, mild funk, cherries and some oxidation. Sweetish and mildly sourish flavor, a bit oxidized, with cherries, malt, caramel and a bit of cellar-y touches. Medium-bodied. Nice. Tmoney99 (15320) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2006
Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured hazy copper color with a moderate fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus and sweet malt aroma.
