COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A typical Flemish beer with a pleasant wine-like taste and a rich past. This dark brown beer, which is matured in oak casks, has a slightly acid aftertaste.

Bottle, 4.5%. Fruity and citric aroma, reminds me of raspberry. Clear brown colour. Small stable light brown head. The flavour is quite citric, turning fruity, again almost like raspberry. The finish is quite dry, but still OK sour.

deyholla (8121) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2009
On tap at Three Floyds. Poured dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma full of sour apple notes with a bit of tart cherry. Flavor had notes of sweet apples and tart cherries, a bit underwhelming.

adrian910ss (2421) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2009
On draft at 3 Floyds. Pours a clear dark ruby red mahogany with a light cream colored head. Vinous aroma of sour cherries, vinegar, cherry puree, and light funk. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

On draft @ FFF. Pours a dark almost black, stout like colour with a cream coloured head. Colour has a reddish tint. Vinous aroma of sour cherries, tart fruit and funk. Flavour of sour cherries, cranberries and tart fruits. Watery flavour with a dry and tarty finish.

JohnnyJ (4913) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Cloudy brown/red pour, thin white head. Cherries, sweet caramel malt, and note of oak. Slightly sour, but mostly sweet red fruit. It’s a simple sour.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Tasted on tap. Pure sour cherry aroma with hints of rhubarb. Light tartness is perfectly balanced with the fruit flavors.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - JUL 15, 2009
Tap: fruity sweetness, mainly black currant, some sourness but too much, quite refreshing, some woody notes, some matallic notes, thin bodied, nice in a hot summer day

jrallen34 (3497) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2009 Drank from the bottle into a chalice in Brussels. This was a surprising beer considering it came wrapped in a paper bag, didn’t know quite what to expect. The beer pours as brownish red with a red head. It smells tart but sweet. Very good tasting beer.
