4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
First impression.. Not as tart as I was expecting... Not what I was expecting at all?? I can understand why others have said cola, though it’s more complex then that. Aromas of dried cherries, raisins, mild balsamic vinegar, caramel and damp, wine soaked wood dominate the aromas.. While the palate is a touch sweeter and fuller then tart, which really accentuates the dried fruit on the palate and sets it apart from the overly acidic sours of today.. Lovely palate dominated by mildly sweet, dried cherries and raisins and a hint of caramel and balsamic vinegar.. Very pure fruit profile.. Full bodied.. Zero carbonation... Dry, mildly tart cherry/raisin finish.. Refreshing and mouthwatering.. Balanced and well delineated aromas and flavors.. Ruby Port like.. in the most positive sense of the term. Very enjoyable. Super easy to drink. Leaves me craving more... --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Oakquinox 2013. Cola colored pour with a khaki head. Sweet dark fruit notes such as raisins and cherries. A bit of cola, lots of balsamic and red wine vinegar, molasses, oak, and a bit of roasted malt. The flavor is almost overwhelmingly sour and acetic. Dark fruit flavor of raisin, cherry, and plum. Cola and molasses sweetness, some roast, a hint of licorice, and oak. Far too acetic for my tastes.

33cl bottle shared with Wim. Dark brown coloured beer with no carbonation and no head, almost a more oily structure. Strange light sour herby hinted aroma. Thicker oily palate. Finish is light sweet fruity sour strong dense and herby. Very enjoyable

Pours a dark purple brown. 3 finger brown head. Nose is cherries, lacto and acetone with raisins. Yeah. very nice. Lots of red grape tannins and skins. Sort of a juicy aspect sour is secondary and a really nice finish. I like this one a lot but it has a syrupy fake ness to it which is a turn off

Red wine barrel character, lots of red wine in fact. Some sourness, but not too much. Very fruity, easy drinking. Spicy.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark brown, no head, just some bubbles. Smells of roasted malts, alot of red wine and oak. Moderate sweet, moderate sour, red wine, oak, more oak and caramel. Light bitter finish. A very nice beer; love the oak and wine tones and the down toned acids

Awesome beer. The aroma is tart cherries, grapees, sour. The flavor is precisely the same, with a little more vinegar sting. The appearance was dark, light tan head. The finish is tart cherry, sour. Medium in body. Excellent represtation of style, reminiscent of Rodenbach.
