2008 bottle found on the shelf at my local bottle shop.

A: Reddish/brown. Foamy white 3 finger head that is slow to dissipate. Ring of head lingers around the edges while drinking.

S: Strong tart and sour smell.

T: Crisp, tart nose that gives way to a very fruity and refreshing cherry finish.

M: Heacy carbonation and light bodied.

O: Great Flanders. Glad I decided to give this a try. As good as many of the "rare" sours.

Bottle shared by Steve at my 22nd birthday, 750ml bottle corked/caged into a tulip. No vintage date.

Poured a dark reddish brown, mocha head with great head retention and some splotchy lace. Nose has sour berries, oak/vanilla/general barrel character. Lots of dried fruits. More tart berry flavours, sweet and sour fruit notes throughout. Oak, vanilla and a touch of brown sugar. More barrel character. Exceptional balance. A phenomenal sour, fantastic feel and flavour.

Steves bottle

Brownish red colour, ring of white head with some lace. Smell is tart with lots of funky yeast, fruity, cherry/berry scents, acidic and wine like. Taste is quite tart initially that lasts the entire time, funky, lots of fruit, cherry/berry flavours, yeasty with a tart finish. Medium carbonation, medium body, solid feel. Very drinkable and quite a treat, could have this every couple of weeks without getting tired of it, really good stuff.

Poured out of a bomber. Not sure the age.

Cloudy mahogany body with a nice white head. Mostly fades but leaves some creamy white on top. Decent lacing for the style.

Tart, cherry like, mild acetic acid. Overall fruity with as little bite

Not too assertive on the flavor. Some sweetness in the middle. Fruit flavors and tartness all around. The fruit lingers more than than the tartness.

Smooth and creamy with an almost puckering finish

An great beer.
