4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2oz bottle. Rating #267. Clear brownish/amber/red pour with a thin white head. Fruity and a little musty, raspberries, grapes and cherries all combined and very sour. Sweet and tart at the same time, kinda like smartees, tart berries and a real nice clean finish. Real nice stuff. (2210)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pretty brown with a tinge of red with nice white head with soapy bubbles on top. Aroma is basalmic vinegar and sour cherries. Not much funk in there. Taste is very sharp sour with a bit of clean funk in the finish. Taste is very much of sour cherries with a bit of lingering sweetness. Mouthfeel is fairly syrupy, but that is a bit expected. Absolutely great beer and preferred to the similar rodenbach grand cru.

Bottle. Pours clear brown red with a nice soapy foamy off white head that slowly fades to a tight foamy collar. Aroma is tart cherries and candied sour sugar and slight funk. Taste is puckering sour cherries and very acidic, some wild funk and lactic tastes as well. Palate is medium and solid carbonation with a acidic puckering dry finish. This is one awesome sour!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at hot city pizza for beer week. Aroma is of sour cherry, makes my mouth water. Flavour is also dominated by sour cherries, some cocoa in the way background. This is very close to Russian river supplication, or perhaps visa versa.

Draft. Really nice, tart, Flanders Red. Aroma of vanilla. Very sweet, very tart, with strong presence of cherries. Beautiful tartness on the palate. A great beer to pair with a hearty meal, or even as dessert. I?d prefer this one in fall or winter.
