To sum it up: a wine like beer with a mild cola flavor to it. Sour fruits are dominating giving it a refreshing wine like style. Nice.

the aroma is caramel and fruity with hints of garden fruits, berries and some spices... the taste is fruity and creamy with notes of sour apple, dry wine, berries and plum... sweet, sour and dry finishing...

___Steve___ (11) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
Very interesting aroma, vinous full brandy type aroma. Sweet wine, lambic with sour lemon vinegar taste but a little too sour to be beer, consider this beer as a malt cider or barley wine that’s

vinivini (750) - BELARUS - AUG 23, 2015
Deep ruby to brown colour, one finger thick rocky head. Aroma of dry & sour fruit, phenols, leather. Light body. Oily texture. Medium sour taste with fruity & yeasty profile. Low bitterness. I don’t think I’d drink it regularly but it was a nice one time experience.

abemorsten (3266) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2015
375 ml flaske fra Det Gode Brygg, Sandnes. Dyp klar rubinrød kropp med et lysebrunt skumdekke. Kirsebærdrops, rognebærgele, syltetøy og sviske blant duftene. Fruktsyrlig, saftaktig i smaken med noe cornflakes i ettersmaken. Tynn og litt overkarbonert.

mauroruellas (489) - GETULINA, BRAZIL - AUG 5, 2015
Coloração marrom avermelhada,espuma cor de canela com boa formação e duração;aroma bem frutado,ácido,me lembrou maça verde;no sabor azedume predomina,notando-se um leve dulçor do malte ao fundo,alta carbonatação,refrescante,final extra seco. Não é um estilo em que eu sou fã,mas é uma bela cerveja..

Not a lambic and not particularly sour. It does have a beer taste but no hops and no bitter taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
