Bottle pours dark red, clear with nice white head...good amount of carbonation. Aroma very nice, dark fruit, acidity and complex. Taste full of dark fruit, mild sourness, very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled) Clear dark brown with a small head. Mild aroma of wet wood and balsamico, too cold to find any nuances (it’s like 5 degrees C inside the festival hall). Flavor of cherries, leather, vinegar, dried fruit. Refreshing. Light to medium body, tart and acetic palate with low CO2. Quite enjoyable in small doses. 4284

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Little off-white head, dark red-brown beer, clear. Lactic acid, buttermilk and citruspeel. Sour, lactic, wood, brown sugar. Lipsmacking sourness and acidburn, body thinned by the acids. As good as the old brown that I remember. Because whatever the commercial hoompah says, this is NOT a new beer. It was one of my favourites 25 years ago, already!

Une massive présence acide en arôme annonce ce qui nous attend, une massive présence acide en bouche. Quelque part au milieu de la gorgée, le jus de cerise boisé s’exprime mais est aussitôt rabattu par l’acidité. Probablement la bière la plus sûr que ma bouche ait rencontré. Assèchement brutal garanti.

Explosion of flavor on the entire palate. Complex sour flavor yet balanced and very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate cherry, light funk, vanilla, lemon, and a touch of oak. It pours a dark copper that is mostly transparent when held to the light. It has a small off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate tart cherry. The finish turns sharply sour cherry along with some lemon, light vinegar, vanilla, and a touch of oak. Lightly sweet cherry lingers on the tongue for a little bit. As it warms, the sweetness becomes a little more prominent and mellows the sourness a touch. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, a very nice Flemish Sour, but I wouldn’t put it in the elite class.

A very enjoyable beer. Very nice frothy head, beautiful deep brown and ruby colors. Oaky sharpness in the aroma, fruity and sourish. Lots of fruit-skin type flavors, makes your mouth pucker but has an excellent sweetness balance. Acetic but not overly so. Easy to drink.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2012 On tap, pours a golden color with a slight head to it. Smell is tart with almost a vinegar aroma. Tart sour cherry that is delightfully balanced and does not leave you making a sour lemon face. Great sour.

On tap at the common table. Pours a deep Ruby red with a thin tan head. The aromas are cherries, light vinegar. The mouthfeel is zesty, vinegary and dry. Nice beer! Cheers!
