This Belgian Sour Ale lives up to its category! It has a sweet and sour aroma and a light cherry color with a big foamy head. The flavor is the same as the aroma but it doesn’t linger for long. It is perfect after a nice long day!

It has a deep red color, which resembles a cherry coulis, and a pinkish head. Aroma is sweet and sour. Taste is a bit sour and the sweet taste of the cherries makes this a well-balanced beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle. Ruby red body, medium head. Aroma has sweet cherry jam. Taste has sweet cherry/ripe raspberry juice. Very sweet, this didn’t need to be sweetened so much. Low tartness in the finish. I don’t detect much complexity behind this wall of sugar. If it really is a blend of different vintages then it’s lost to me. Simple and somewhat refreshing (however, the sweetness really creeps up) but generally not interesting.

Cherry ruby red, clean and crisp. Pinkish short-lived head.
High aromas of cherry, kirsch and yeast.
Dry, pungent and sheer sour. Subtle persistence. Very nice in its style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Old rating. Red purple color. Huge cherry with caramel malty base. Big fruity sweetness with just a little bit of a tart edge. Maybe a bit cloying for being a sour, but not bad at all.
