Bottle, pours dark brown, thin white head, Fruity aroma, plenty of malt. Taste is of yeasty, fruity malts, bitter pallate, not a great deal of complexity here. Nice surprisingly good beer. Slightly sour. Very enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into a Snifter glass. Pours a dark bownish hue with a hint of amber tones, with a nice and thing white tannish head that hugs the sides of the glass. Aroma consists of a very nice cherryish vinegar smell that is rather potent. Flavor brings out a sweet and sour vinegar taste which moves into a tiny tartness into and past the finish. Very smooth!!

Superb head, very compact, sustainable, good carbonation. Troubled raspberry colored brew. Nose of cherry and apple vinegar. Starts sweet then turns acidic though not that tart. Watery without being thin. It is hard to believe there isn’t any fruit in this brew. Very well done, refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a reddish brown with very little head and near to no lacing. Lots and oodles of sediment in this one. Aroma was malty and of sweet fruits. The flavor was of a caramel malty base, some breadiness (both odd for this style?), and spiced (coriander? again, odd for the style?), while the tart fruits took over ’til the finish of each sip (with a semi-sweet ending). Mouthfeel was flat, but nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark reddish-brown with a beige head. Slightly tart, it does share some aspects of a good red wine. The fragrance fills the nose and mouth with each sip. Earthy, complex, and generally enjoyable to have in hand.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy ruby-brown with a large mostly lasting off-white head. Aroma (which is milder then I expected) of fruity malt, mild vinegar, spices, a very slight tartness and some hops. Fruity malt flavour without any of the sourness that I expected, there’s only a very mild tartness. Medium bodied and very carbonated. It’s O.K. but it didn’t knock my socks off, I expected much better.

37.5cl bottle. I didn’t know what to expect from this. I’ve liked previous Liefmans beers. This is a brown/ruby colour with lasting beige head. Cherry fruit (both red and black) on the aroma. Some brown sugar sweetness in mouth. I really like this, tad too sweet though and could be sourer for both my palate and balance.

Much more than what I was expecting. But, then again, I was really have any expectations. I was familiar enough with the style to know what I was getting myself into, though. It was sweeter than anticipated and tasted like a raspberry Tootsie Pop. That was good enough but then it finished with this throat clutching bitterness. Quite good.
