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.

Taste: The aroma and taste are totally different to me. The taste is sweet malts up front then tart fruits (cherries)
I really like this sour. Very clean, crisp and refreshing. The sourness is very light in both the aroma and taste.

Mora2000 (6157) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle at our recent sour tasting. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is oak, tannins and red wine. The flavor is similar to red wine with some oak notes and caramel malt. Mild tartness and very dry. The beer has a somewhat watery mouthfeel and low carbonation.

popery (2017) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 25, 2010
A decent sour, though a bit mild. This one is mostly acidic, but the beer is rather light in flavor and feel, at least relatively fresh, so itís still fairly easy to drink. Bacchus pours a deep red with a shade or two of brown, small ecru head. Aroma is too mild but there are some nice sweet and sour cherry notes and hints of grain. Flavor is a bit better with more acidity, a light funk and mild malt. Feel is a bit thin, which isnít really a big surprise, but itís still a fairly easy beer to drink.
