I prefer the blond one but this brown one is not disgusting. No surprise, no special taste

mile (3163) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle. Amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, faint sourness and light cherry fruitiness, faint notes of wood and barnyard. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel, faint cherry fruitiness and sourness. Finish is short, malty and lightly sweetish, light sourness and cherry fruitiness, faint notes of wood and light alcohol. Light-bodied and bit flat sour ale – really nothing special. There are better ones.

Wonderful blended beer. A trade that is dissaparing but the Timmermanns family has kept for centuries. Caramel, dough, butterscotch, banana, raisin, vanilla

Pelzky (48) - Szczecin, POLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Deep ruby color with lasting head, good lacing. Aroma of cherries, red berries, malts, some wild and wine notes. Taste is santized. Sourness isn’t that high as I expected. It reminds me a bit of cherry compote. Quite drinkable, carbonation is ok. Decent, nothing else.

tricksta_p (1424) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2015
Aroma of malt, caramel, sweet red fruits, sour cherries, wood. Flavour is moderate sweet and light sour. Body and mouthfeel are good. I would have liked more sourness and less sweetness.

mgajdaczewa (651) - Katowice, POLAND - JAN 8, 2015
W aromacie w pierwszej nucie wyraźna wiśnia, potem dzikość, lekka skóra, nieco pestki, ogólnie całkiem przyjemnie. W smaku pestkowe, wyraźna wiśnowo - karmelowa słodycz i lekki kwasek. NIeco kompotowo. Niewiele się tu dzieje.

Ulysse (199) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2014
Aroma suggests a sweet beverage. Light beer. Tastes somewhat like a diet soda. Not much carbonation.

Bière qui goûte un peu le sucre. Aucun arrière goût, ça s’arrête trop vite. Aucun intérêt.

Taster @ Finest Brewery Shop, Brugge. Darker brown colour with a thick bubbly head. Has a sweet nose with a more soured taste at first, leading to a small sweetness.
