Bottle from Bruges. Pours hazy red with a frothy cream head. Quite sweet at first. Some juicy red fruit at first with woody undertones. A little sourness, but not as much as you might expect. Nice, but not amazing.

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.

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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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
