3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Sour fruit, rude barny notes, slight sewer, all behind a lot of dark sugar. Dark tea color. Harsh tart fruit initial, slight oxidation, grapes and overripe melon, and a touch of chocolate. Thin-medium body with some astringency. Complex aroma. Flavors are mild but quite exceptional.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
25 cl. bottle @ home. From Willems. BBF 17/12/2014. Label is in Dutch unlike the Grand Cru which was in English. Pours a very hazy pomegranate chestnut brown with only some beige bubbles for the head. Nose is spoiled red grapes, cheap red wine, wood, sweet jam, molasses and malts. Taste is sweet molasses, varnish, wood, molasses, spoiled red grapes & spoiled cheap red wine, cheap cherry liqueur candy, touch bitter in the back, hint metallic. Reasonable malt & red wine body. Not to different from the Grand Cru in quality which scores much higher here. Still not a fan, tastes like prison-made red wine & also very messy. If I would like to drink crappy wine, I would do just that. Crude but that is how I feel about this.

Ruikt nergens naar. Mooi bier. Smaakt erg vreemd met een rare nasmaak. Niks bijzonders.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: People have rated this low, but I donít think itís that bad. It is a bit acidic after an entire bottle, but some friends also had sips and really liked it. So, itís not the Dutchess! Big deal! There is only one of those my friends.
Cloudy brown with a frothy head. Aromas of vinegar and wood. Dry, dry flavors of sweet, green apples and lots of tartness. It has a dry aftertaste of cotton.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 25 cl. Dark ruby, with very little head. The sour nose is promising, but it disappears soon. Medium body, very drinkable. A bit astringent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottiglia 25 cl. Oud Bruin Buona nel complesso anche se manca di equilibrio nel retrogusto che non si riesce a identificare distintamente come le sue colleghe nel genere.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 330 ml. bottle with a bottle cap stamped 15:20/1703-25APRIL17. The pour was darker than I anticipated coming in with a deep amber tone and ruby red hues in the light. The head was tremendous but I was serving it at about 50 degrees. Lots of sour ale aroma on the nose with modest pale malts, wood, cherry, butter, and molasses. The body is medium and slightly astringent. It lives up to its sour taste expectations with some cherry and spice and a slight lingering bitterness.
