UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 poured from draft and poured a nice dark red color with a small head.
excellent aromatics with some funk, sour apples, cherries and spices. Nice depth as well with a good tart quality too.
medium/full bodied with a nice acidic bite to it. Very good feel as well. This is a real quality sour and gives just the right amount of sourness.

On tap at Modeste Bier Festival. Didn’t have any expectations whatsoever, but what a surprise! Almost as good asz the Foederbier from rodenbach, and that’s a compliment. Tart, acidic, complex... you name it, it’s got it! Great!

Dried cherry flavour,rather sour. More enjoyable than a Rodenbach, not all that good, though.

Draught at Toronado. Amber-orange with a thick, fine head. Aroma of yogurt, cherry, caramel, and a bit of vinegar. Very sour flavor, with huge lactic notes, some vinegar, caramel and cherry. Great sweet-and-sour balance. Creamy and lovely. The real thing, though it claims to be a lambic—I would guess it is a Flemish Red. Good sourness.

If you like cherry sour patch kids, this is for you. Very cherry, very tart, very good. Had this on tap - had a nice head - color was hard to really tell due to the darkness of the pub. VERY sweet - a bit much for my normal drinking pleasure, but the sweetness was appropriate given how tart it is. Overall, very good.

8-oz draft at Rattle w Erica. Pours deep red/purple with small head and leaves a vapory lacing on the glass. Aroma is faint fruit but little tart; taste is a grapey/winey tart explosion with long legs, which I always enjoy with sours. Good.
