UPDATED: SEP 11, 2014 Murky red colour body. Aroma like balsamic vinegar. No head. Really heavy sour salty taste. I must admit that the first time I tried this I really did not enjoy it. Second time was much more pleasant but still very sour.

McWorta (592) - LUXEMBOURG - DEC 8, 2013
Amber coloured beer with pretty much no head. Noses of apricots, white grapes and ripe apples. Soft and light slick in texture. Medium-full body with a light sweet and medium sour taste. Good balance with a short-medium finish. Definitely a digestif beer.

Grado: imperscrutabile. Gusto: incredibile. Versata tutta in un bel calice Teku non lascia nessuno scampo alle papille gustative. Verdetto unanime: paradisiaca. Beverina, fruttata, amabilmente acida, sensuale. Se avessi una spina in salotto, vorrei poter attaccare la Luna Rossa. Ogni italiano amante della birra dovrebbe essere fiero di questo prodotto e, senza perdere un’istante, dovrebbe assaggiarlo.

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2013
330 ml bottle. 2010 vintage.
Pours a dark murky amber colour without a head. Aroma is very tart with dark cherries, wood and balsamic vinegar. Huge depth. Flavour ensues; dark cherries, pear, orange juice, more balsamic vinegar, sweet plums, rather strong earthiness and leather. Medium bodied, low carbonation and a dry but very juicy, tart, cherry finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Complexity at it’s best.

dado93 (140) - ITALY - NOV 14, 2013
My first Sour Ale / Lambic style beer, probably the worst beer i ever drunk... Ruby red color without head, acetic and ester aroma and taste, oily body and nothing carbonation... Very sour after taste...

burg326 (3699) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Poured a amber reddish color froth bottle bought at the Brass Tap, aromas of light fruit, oak, yeast and a touch of funk. Flavors are the same vinous wood, and some tart dark fruit, decent beer overall but not the best sour I’ve had.
