Benzai (11323) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle @ home. Lightly hazy red-brown color, average sized beige head. Smell and taste malts, caramel, a hint of sweet but mainly sour. Weird sweet - sour mix with quite clearly some oak coming through. Average body and carbonation. Meh, not my thing.

Appearance is very dark ruby, with a lasting off-white head. Dark fruit, cherry, sugary sweetness in the aroma. Taste- malty, lots of cherry, port hints, medium mouthfeel.

abemorsten (3378) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2014
0,33 l bottle at Gollem, Amsterdam. Clear deep ruby-amber body with a small light brown head. Toffee, cherry and prune compote on the nose. Malty caramel and fruits. Medium bodied. Starts watery but ends more juicy. Even some fruit stone-like bitterness in the finish. On the bland side.

On tap at Yard House in San Diego. Pours a clear Amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is artificial berries. Flavor follows. Very sweet and syrupy. Nor really sour. Tastes like bad candy. And I normally like the style. This just isn't good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

budedou (623) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - NOV 12, 2014
Reddish brown colour, delicate head which goes to the sides. Aroma has lots of berries and tannin, some oak or other woody notes too. Taste has red sour berries, with other sour elements and tannin. Some sweeter berries are there too. Medium body and medium carbonation. Well sometimes you just got to try the strange ones.

Not the most amazing sour but pretty good overall. Decent flavors of oak, sour fruit and vinegar. Body is a little watery.

Bottle of 33cl, in a tulip glass. Correct beer, i buy it because i thought it was a Duchesse the Bourgogne... Was not dissapointed even if she’s not as good as the Duchesse. Great aroma and appearance, but a little lack of that sour red/brown taste. Try it !

eduardovl (1148) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a tulip glass. A: Pours a dark amber almost brown color forming a medium to small bubbled yellow head which dissipates quickly leaving lots of spotty lacings in the glass. A thin layer remains on top for a long time S: Sweet and fruity. Strong notes of grapes and cherries, mainly. Notes of oak and a caramel malts backbone T: Sweet upfront which is fruity as well, again, strong notes of grapes and cherries. Notes of wood and candy sugar. Caramel malts. Nice light sourness and a very light bitterness in the very end. A bit syrupy M: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Sweet and fruity and, at the same time, mild sour aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Refreshing beer [ BA Review @ 3/23/2013 ]
