Dark Amber color with off white head and moderate lacing. Aroma is mostly sweet and fruity. Flavor is sweet, sugary, strawberry and grapes with mild bitterness. Kind of tastes like the fake Welch’s grape wine juice. Slight sourness- underwhelming.

seynie (129) - Tienen, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2014
Nice red brown with quickly disappearing top. Smells sour and sticky sweet, but luckily the taste is less sticky. Green apples and cherries, some sour mix. The taste is right and even contends with some Rodenbachs, but the finish is too short although you do get some tannines. Overall well done

koleminer20 (535) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2014
From notes. 330 mL bottle shared at a tasting on 5 May. The pour is a reddish brown with a nice khaki head, but no lacing. The aroma is beautifully sour and possesses a nice fruity character to it. The apple and cherry kind of run a little rampant throughout the back end of the nose. The The flavor begins to follow with a nice sourness up front, but the fruits fizzle out quickly on the back end and the remainder of it is relatively disappointing. The mouth feel is thin and slick, but the carbonation is great. The aftertaste is a little fruity and dry, but fades out quickly

Flemish Red Ale with a good sour aroma with apples and cherries. The Taste is sour and a sweet end of cherries but with a too quick a finish.

Swaroga (1247) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2014
33cl butelka. OCZY : piwo ma kolor brązu z odcieniami czerwieni. Piana jest średniej wielkości o kolorze szarym. NOS : już w zapachu można wyczuć kwaśne aromaty wiśni i drewna. Do tego dochodzi zapach tarty, soku jabłkowego, karmelu i drożdży. Aromat jest mocny i bogaty. USTA : piwo jest słabo gazowane. Puszyste i kremowe w ustach o średnim nasyceniu. Słodkie o nutach tarty i owoców. Jest również kwaśne ale nie wykrzywia twarzy. Kwaśność jest podobna do dobrze dosłodzonego soku z wiśni. Koniec odsłania nuty drożdżowe i podobne są do surowego ciasta drożdżowego. Posmak jest delikatnie kwaśny. ODCZUCIA : świetnie skomponowane piwo. Nie ma przesady ale jest bogactwo i każdy łyk chętnie się przytrzymuje w ustach na dłużej. OCENA : smak : 8/10 pijalność : 6/10

Oscbert (1002) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 23, 2014
Strong sour aroma of barnyard funk, green apples, tart cherries. Pours a murky brownish red with small disappearing head. Slightly sour in flavor, bready malts with sour cherry, raisin. Light bodied high co2, quick finish with lingering light sourness Refreshing beer. Good introductory sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
