Appearance is between bordeaux-red and brown, with a white head that rapidly vanishes. Aroma off red fruits, which also reappears in the taste. This, in combination with a medium sour taste, gives the beer a winey taste. Love the beer, love the style of beer.

Having this two years past best before date, so not sure what effect this has had on the beer. Definitely winey and acidic as the label suggests. Would be good to try again fresh. Haven’t dipped my toes into sour style beers too much

Super interesting and just a unique glass of beer. Reddish highlights and a pleasant earthiness to the aroma. Complex taste that went from sweet to savory with fruit and wood only to end up sour on the back of my tongue and roof of my mouth. Drooling, I went for another sip.

On tap, 25cL. @Le Sur Mesure, Nantes, France. A black beer with red hues ; medium beige head with a medium retention. Good lacing. Aroma of vinegar, wood, ashes. Medium to acute sour, light sweet. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation, dry sour lasting finish. Overall, good surprise ! I enjoyed this dry sourness with this woody acid aroma.

Dark brown hazy body and a small rocky white head that is fastly diminishing. Aroma of sour berries, redcurrants, grapes and oak. The taste is medium sweet and medium sour with a long lasting sour and dry finish. The taste is not lasting for long.

Finemang oude bryr med bra fin smak av suta bär balanserad malt. Lite lätt doft å mindre syrlig i eftersmaken än vad jag är van vid. Men riktigt bra! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cherries, toffee, treacle nose. Chestnut colored, medium tan head. Tart cherry and stems flavor. Plum and toffee overtones, but cherry is dominant. Light body, medium carbonation. Good complexity and layers. Very pleasant.
