2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appear: light red (like a blush wine) with a small white head that doesn’t persist
Aroma: Very much like a red wine (tannins), dry cherry, no hops or malt character
Flavor: How a barley-based wine cooler would taste. Very much red wine character with noticeable tannins and only subtle background malt character
Mouthfeel: Light body with medium/light carbonation. Dry finish and a tannin-like astrigency persists
Its very hard to judge this beer because their is no style that cooresponds to it. If they were trying to make something like a barley-based wine cooler ... damn they nailed it. Fruity (cherry), tannins from wine and light/dry so is refreshing on a hot day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy rose red with thin head. Cantillon-like aroma - sour, plasticy, sour cherries. Dry and tart, crabapples. Tart and sour finish. Is this beer? Not in the traditional sense but more lambic than fruit beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
How to make a Breughel beer palatable? Blend it with wine, of course. Lovely pink-red colour. Pleasant winey aroma is perhaps a bit mild. Tart, with sweet fruitiness. Seems fairly clean. A different sort of brew, certainly refreshing if not my everyday taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at brasserie vandoren. The hue is deep ruby, and the little bubbles give the illusion the beer is a big raspberry. Blush pink head. Aroma is musty and interesting, with a distinct vinous character. The palate is light and off dry. Would be a 1 or 2 on the sweetness scale if it were a wine. Nice fruity tartness too, with lots of berry character. Light and refreshing.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2010 ...That was probably worst than "Rêves de Vigne", which tells a lot.
I wondered, back in the days, if it would have been better if I would have drunk it at a wine-like temperature...
But I finally gave up and flushed the whole stuff.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cherry colour with a thin white lace, Thin metallic aroma and cherry. Very refreshing ale. Hints of cherries, raspberries and mixed fruit in the flavour. Very subtle. Thin body. Would like a bit more body. Gets better as it warms.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looks just like a blush wine. Awful almost carcinogenic aroma. Mouldy cheese cloth, stinky and baaaaaaaaaaaad. Is this a gueuze? Filthy dirty cardboard, apple, odd berries a bit of candy when warmer. I’m going to consider this as a gueuze. Interesting taste I guess: berries, club soda, yeast, horse blankey, sour cherries, bark (goes surprisingly good with wasabi peas)... ick. It has an odd fizz and the thinnest thick ever. Tart, very tart thoughout. I seems that I really enjoyed this beer and then really hated it and then repeat. Long sour blanket finish. It’s legacy is terrible ghastly breath.
