Description talked about a wine-like beer, and it wasn’t false. I would add "watery-like". It will - with difficulty - please beer drinkers and wine drinkers.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bière qui fait penser au vin avec un côté acide. L’arrière goût est inexistant. Bière qui ne vaut vraiment pas le coup.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel and red fruit aromas. It’s quite dry for a flemish red ale. Quite tart with a short tart final. Lack of complexity.

(Bottle 0.33, half of bottle, 16 months after best before) Brown, transparent colour with red flashes. Very small, off white bubble head, rapidly falling to foam. Minimal lacing.

Taste is watery, moderate sour, vinegary, medium tart. Short light tart finish.Balaced, easy to drink but a bit weak in aroma and boring in taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lactic sour aroma with some dark fruit and woodyness. Maybe a bit watery palate and sour is maybe 3 of 10 sour. Bit light and lacking body, but good flavors and a nice sour overall.

Very short lived expired sweet apple juice followed by a watery tasteless oblivion. Too weak.

Very white foam! Intense dark brown color. Sour refreshing fruity. Bit flat and simple but still memorable.
