Clear caramel colour, slight white head. Quite sour aroma, fruity, citrus, cherry, reminding of Oud Bruin. Sour flavour, citric acid, acetic, lemon peel, wood. Quite dry. Light carbonation. Tart finish, wood, vanilla and lemon peel.
Very elegant.

bottle shared by tom10101, many thanks man - mondial de la bière: 0, tommy: 1. pours hazy copper-red with a very small off-white head. red fruitiness, wood, grass, moderate but fairly present acetic notes, underlying caramel, spices, some raisins and herbs, some treacle sweetness. soft carbonation, light to medium body - oily, fairly present acetic acid that cuts through that sweetness - slightly unbalanced. a nice ’’beer day’’ ending - enjoyable for sure!

birrofilo91 (9) - siror, ITALY - JUN 3, 2013 does not count
Più oud bruin che kriek, torbida, già al naso profumi di cantina, ciliege. In bocca molto complessa con frutta rossa in primo piano e una buona acidità che prende ben presto il sopravvento. Birra non per tutti ma davvero importante negli aromi, ai livelli di un vino per gli amanti del genere. Ottima con formaggi stagionati.

mathieuc (3133) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle shared by tom10101, thanks again! Pour is really not good looking, a murky red with no head. Aroma is nice but not really special, it reminds me of JP La Roja to be honest but less nice. Taste is a bit unbalanced to me, a bit too sour without anything else to back it up. I’m happy we could sample this after we couldn’t get some from the Mondial but I can’t say I was pleased with the beer itself.

Bottle (330 ml) 2010. Courtesy of kbudd19, thanks! Hazy amber with a little head and no lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet with fruits, wood and acetic notes. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with acetic notes, fruits and wood. Medium body. Dry and acetic. Good Sour. Not overly complex, but still quite interesting and enjoyable.

Pours a light red, no head at all. Very sour aroma, with the taste with a cutting clean sour cherry, hardly an carbonation at all (which is a bit of a shame in my opinion) but overall with every sip it gets better.

suprchunk (2925) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Hazy caramel color. No head. No lacing. Huge acetic nose with a sour cherry note. A sweet malty taste with a sour acetic note. A pie cherry note in the back. A little sweet mixed with sour in the end. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
