0.75 l bottle from airport shop in Brussels. Very deep and dark red colour with pink head. At first you will taste cherries but after you have swallowed your throat will feel something sour. Yes, the Flemish sour ale comes through the sweetness. To call this cuvee sweet and sour would describe the taste better than just plain brut. You won’t have these kind of flavours in sparkling wines.

aroma and flavour of vinegar and ripe sweet cherries.
flavour was too tart for me, but the missus loves it.
i thought it a bit thin in the mouth as well. looks inviting with deep cheery red and minimal head.

Nice cherry sweet aroma. Deep orange red color. Fresh sweet fruit up front. Cicely balanced with dry sourness that is very palatable. Dry tart finish that is refreshing.

2014/03/25 - Pours a dark red-mahogany colour with a small, fizzy, light pink head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is cherries, wood, sweet grains and mild funk. Taste is rather sweet moderately sour. Notes of sour cherries, vanilla, lemon, tobacco, toffee and very mild funk. Mouthfeel is medium and sticky with high, crisp carbonation and a sweet, drying finish.

Bottle courtesy of goldtwins. Pours reddish-brown. Aroma of sweet cherries. Taste is very sweet, though not cloying here. A bit syrupy on the palate and some tartness arrives in the finish.

Tap, The Wenlock: With my London guide Duff. Sour, alcohol soaked cherries dominate the aroma. Very sweet cherry flavours are balanced nicely by a quenching sourness. It’s really alla bout the cherries though.
