On tap at the beer Trappe the beer is amber with an ecru head. The aroma is of sour cherries and the taste is sour that exhibits a tanginess that resonates on the palate.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the LCBO (I think - it’s been in my stash for a while!). Pours a murky looking reddish-brown with a wispy beige head. Aroma of tart cherry, wood, good balsamic vinegar, a bit of almond. Medium-light body. Flavour is a bit disappointing - there are some cherry and wood notes, but they disappear quickly under an acidic tartness that would be more enjoyable if supported by a more complex base. The finish is also quick and a bit dusty feeling on the palate. All in all, it’s not bad, but it seems... stale, maybe? Perhaps I let it age too long... <BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!> ...30 minutes later, I’m still sipping on this, and it’s gotten a LOT better! The flavour has filled out with more fruit, red wine, bit of chocolate, vanilla, and the acidity has mellowed into a more appealing accent rather than an aggressive top note. From "feh!" to "fantastic!" - wow!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yellow-brownish head, gone very fast. Colour is dark red/brown, very deep and opacque. Great smell, lactic acid, wood and red fruits, and very vinous! Taste is acetic, not so sour, still some wood notes, but less complex than the smell.
Medium bodied, dry, nice carbonation, soft.
What a nice surprise!
I would say similar to Rodenbach Grand Cru, just a bit less acetic and a little more sweet.

Pours a dark clear red with frothy beige head. Amazing nose of raisin, sour cherry, vanilla, and licorice. Very refreshing for a sour. Good carbonation. Great summer beer.
