The strong sour aroma is scary. The head is not even white, maybe a light beige. On the direct light the color is dark red. The taste is frizzy, sweet and sour, somehow refreshing. I like it on the palate. It’s really an interesting drinking. I don’t know exactly why but I want to drink this beer again.

(Flasche, ~9 Monate) Es hat eine sehr dunkle, robinrote Farbe, scheint filtriert mit einer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sauer, Waldbeere oder Kirsche und im Hintergrund Gras. Der Geschmack ist schlank, sauer, Kirsche und dumpf. Es ist prickelnd und garnicht bitter.

EddyBeer1 (1045) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2013
Brune foncée, pétillance assez légère, fine mousse brune persistante. Plutôt bien équilibrée dans le genre: un peu acide (vinaigre), un peu fruitée (fruits des bois), un peu boisée et une note de réglisse pour l’amertume.

Benzai (10131) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2012
25cl bottle @ home. Dark brown color with a deep dark red glow coming through. Big creamy, thick, long lasting beige head that leaves a good lacing. Smell malts and a bit sour, slightly sweaty. Taste malts, sourish, grape-peel and a slight hint of fruitpeel-bitterness. Low to medium body and carbonation.

Erzengel (5516) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2012
Angenehmer, sauer-dunkler-dickflüssiger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist süß-malzig, leicht sauer, dabei sehr vollmundig. Schmeckt nach mehr als die 4,8%. Der Hauptteil ist lang anhalötend, voll, dunkel-dickflüssig und angenehm leicht säuerlich mit toller Holznote. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine dunkle, (röstmalzige) Holznote, dabei eine angenehm süßliche Säure. --> sehr interessantes Bier!
