Wigan hosting Arsenal. What a great game...if you’re an Arsenal fan..well Wigan too, they hold out ok. Figured i’d sip this for 90+ minutes. Good smooth and mild choice for such a game. Nice amber brown/purple pour...careful now..lots of sedi sitting at the bottom. Sweet and Sour nose with a little tingle. Taste is a mild sweet sour cherry and vinegar in a smooth oak finish, but nothing really outstanding. Fine with me.:)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Very fruity aroma, like a Wild Cherry Capri Sun with added green apple and grapes. Also fresh bread and a hint of alcohol. Flavor of dark fruits, cherries, cola, wood, earth. The finish is light sour grapes and coppery blood (or bloody copper). Not as good as the Duchesse de Bourgogne, but I like it.

2003 bottle with Poperinge. Borwon. No head. Small floaties. Alcohol aroma with background sourness. Flavour is more sweetness than sour with some woody notes. Interesting lemon and cherry flavour. Tasty and introspective.

Dark amber and slightly opaque in appearance, this beer has aromas of: sour cherries, fresh bread/yeast grapes and sour apple. In the mouth, it’s moderately sweet and aromas of oxidized copper and roses become apparent. The palate is very creamy and alluring with a long-lasting sweet finish.Yummy!

Another beer ruined by a takeover. All you get is a horrible sickly sweetness now instead of complexity of an old style brown ale. A crying shame.

Mmmm, I love beer that has floaties all over the place. This thing was like a fucking aquarium. Awesome. So weird, I know. The beer in general was not very sour at all, which was dissappointing, but still exhibited nice fruitiness and balance.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 IT was really good, like one of my new pals said, you can stash it until a great time comes, like when one of my kids, if I ever got one at least, gets married.

The aroma was soury dark fermented fruit, slight barnyard, and candy notes. The flavor was soury dark fermented fruit, candy sweetness and berries. The beer poured a cloudy medium brown color w/ thin lasting head and lacing. The mouthfeel was light to medium bodied, creamy, and a dry finish.
