    Pours clear sienna with a good tan head. Strong aroma presents tart and sour fruit, woody hops, a hint of fresh malt. Flavor offers pomme and dark fruit, more tart than sour, with hints of woody hops and raw malt. Texture provides OK body and perky fizz. Get a little Flanders in ya.

    Dark green bottle. Pours a red/brown with no head of any kind. Nice amount of carbonation in the glass. Aroma is spicy and has a communion wine likeness to it. Taste is very metallic and sour with a rotten fruit tartness at the end. Aftertaste is metallic and dry. Overall an interesting beer to try but is not my cup of tea.

    A deep reddish mahogany colored beer. Not much of a head. Soapy, white. Disappears quickly. Not much lacing. But what it lacks in appearance it more than makes up in flavors. The profile is sour, vinegary, of dark fruits. Ligt medium bodied, crisp. A home run.

    Pours a ruby tan brown, with low head, spider diarrhea lacing .. quite light, flavours of sweet leather, week old cherry, and mad plum .. a nice drink to start the day, a good example to give/recommend to someone getting into sours ...

    250 ml bottle. Poured a burgundy brown colored ale with a one finger slight beige creamy foamy head that had an excellent retention. Active carbonation. Some lacing. The aroma is sourish dark fruits, berries, cherries, plums, raisins, toasted malts. The flavour is sourish fruits, cherries, plums mixed with a caramel sweetness and vinous notes and oaks. The mouthfeel is slight fizzy with alternately the predominance of the sourish-aciditic side and the sweety side. This medium bodied ale has a sourish fruity and sweety finish. A superb and tasting Oud Bruin.

    I momentarily forgot this was a sour, and boy did I know after the first taste. A reddish-brown pour that was replete with weak tart fruit and a tan head. The flavour was pucker city, with a tart front full of cherries, and bitter finish.

    Bottle: Poured a deep hazy reddish color ale with a medium foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet cherries and light sour and oaky notes. Taste is also dominated by tasty oak notes with a light lingering sour note with some sweet cherries. I thought the bit was slightly overly sweet but oak notes were just about perfect, carbonation might have been a bit low. Well done.

    Poured a deep red, almost black, but not opaque. The aroma was sour, tart, almost like a vinegar. The flavor was slightly tart and sour ... like a watery balsamic vinegar. It isn't as clean a Belgian sour as the Rodenbach, but it was drinkable.

    11.2 oz bottle, best by 12/27/08. Pours a dark reddish brown with a creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

    The aroma is sour tart fruits and wood with some bready/biscuity malt in the background and maybe a little oxidization.

    The flavor is tart and sour fruits that are offset by some chocolate malt, wood, sweet sugar and dates. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery.

    Overall, an OK sour, that's a bit pricey. There's some sourness but I don't think it blends really well with the other flavors.
