Bottle from Hop City in Atlanta. Pint glass pour in my hotel room. Pours a deep red-brown with a thick, fast diminishing head. Great aroma of sour cherries, dark fruits, and acidic. The taste was a little less exciting than the aroma. The cherries and fruits come through, but it really isn’t very tart. Flavor is fine, but just mild. Little acid to go along. Light body, smooth finish. Overall good, but oddly light in flavor.

Draft. Aroma of apples, plums and apricots. Nice ruby body. Flavor is wood, crisp leaves and light sour tone. Body is very light and almost flat.

On tap at Popeye’s. Ichtegem grand cru 5.5% A deep plum red-brown with a pungent red-wine like cork fruity nose. Like sangria. The taste is fruity plum and sugared malts sweet but tart. Very nice.

Botella 33cl Marrón rojizo con espuma beigue, no muy abundante y que desaparece tras un tiempo. Aroma intenso a cereza, madera, malta, caramelo y frutas. En boca de baja carbonatación y cuerpo medio, tacto agradable. De entrada caramelo y especias, después explota en muchos sabores, sobresalen frutas cereza, uva... Al final aparecen madera y licor. Alcohol bien escondido.

Bottle bbe 04/03/2019. Nice dark red color, very clear. Aroma: cream caramel, hints of vanilla. Taste: goes with the aroma together with soft sourness and creaminess. Nicely balanced and drinkable red! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Nice cherry, wine and oaky notes in the aroma with bit of sourness. In taste low fruity sweetness upfront with sour finish. Low to medium body, high carbonation. Nice.

Silvan7 (970) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle @ home. Ramata, limpida, riflessi rubino schiuma beige fine e persistente. Aroma poco intenso per lo stile ma piacevole. Fruttato di amarene uva fermentata, vinoso, anche ribes, legno, vaniglia e caramello. Terra e polvere ma non troppo marcati. Gusto abboccato, decisamente acida, ma non ai livelli di una rodenbach.poco amara e quasi del tutto a causa della tostatura, non del luppolo. Poco corposa quasi nessuna carbonatazione. Spigolosa ma piena. Abbastanza equilibrata piuttosto armonica

Moolesen (378) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Red/brown with an off white head. A bit sour nose. Sour taste with some sweet malt. Rather short finish. Not my kind of beer.

Ysok02 (626) - MOns, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2015
Robe rouge, belle mousse. Nez sur les fruits rouges acidulés, une note boisée, et acidulée. Bouche à la belle attaque acidulée et fruitée, le boisé est bien intégré et la finale équilibrée. Un belle bière nettement supérieure à la cuvée de base.

pouring a deep reddish amber in a snifter glass this brew on tap at the Firkin has all the qualities expected of a great sour. The sour fruit notes on the nose with hints of floral and barnyard followed by sour cherries, raspberries, blackberries and honey. Yum. Great mouth feel of tiny champagne bubbles coating the tongue make new want another. ...But it’s just a one sour nite.
