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.

On tap at the Cheeky Monk in Denver. Clear dark red color with a small off-white head. Aroma is both sweet and sour with cherry, apple, oak, and mild funk. Flavor is a tiny bit tart but mostly just sweet, with cherry, apple, sweet malt, and a metallic, acidic finish. The description calls this "wine-like?" Not very accurate. Body is medium-light with moderately high carbonation. Not a huge fan overall.

MoritzF (9369) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2009
(wrapped bottle) Clear, effervescent dark ruby coloured hue with a thick beige foamy head. Sour and fruity aroma of red berries and cherries with a light notes of sweet malt. Mildly sour flavour, light bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. Rather slim malty taste with soft fruity notes; moderately dry and slightly acidic finish with a balancing malty sweetness. A stronger body would be appropriate, otherwise a pleasent Oud Bruin. 11.IX.09

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2009
On tap at hopcat, GR, MI. Clear ruby red with small head. Aroma is sweet with a little bit of tartness and lots of cherry. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a little bit mor lacto and sourness, but really sweet. Body is medium with nice carbonation. Not awful but almost at the point of being a sugar bomb.

MiP (15253) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2009
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 (9993) - 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 (2565) - 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.

JohnnyJ (5367) - 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.

Tasted on tap. Pure sour cherry aroma with hints of rhubarb. Light tartness is perfectly balanced with the fruit flavors.
