Infinitely complex in aroma and flavor with notes of maltiness and tartness throughout. An unsurpassed old brown with the richness and complexity of a vintage wine.

Bottle at home, @10°C Deep red colour. Fine, fast disappearing head. Fruity sweet arome. Hints of yeast and berries. Flavour is sweet-sour with notes of rhubarb (only thing coming close). No hints of the high alcohol content recognizable. Did not know that it was rated this high on ratebeer but now comprehensible for me.

SylvainCFC (46) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2016
Robe brune foncé, teinte acajou. Mousse moyenne au versement, tenue moyenne, beige claire. Grosses bulles qui disparaissent. Nez doux, vinaigré et acide. Arômes fruités (cerise, framboise). Bouche moyennement acide dès l’attaque balancée par une douceur de fruit et de malt, léger caramel, la fermentation mixte est claire. Petite amertume à mi-bouche. Bien balancée, un peu plus amère que la Rodenbach.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2016 Jesus, Mary and Joseph this beer is something else. Beautiful mahogany colour with a small head. It’s like a wine but so much better. It’s nicely tart, but also really sweet. Amazing cherry flavours. And always there’s an ale in the background reminding you how incredibly distinctive good beers can be. This is how you do sweet and sour

I really really like it. It is fresh, it is slightly sour, it has wine aroma, it is refreshing, it is different, it is unexpected, it is really good beer. 2015 batch.

Cunningham (6671) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2016
Nice pleasant evening sipper. Belgium did unfortunately lose their first match in Euro 2016/France while I enjoyed this one.
Deep nutty color. Almost amber. A thin tan layer on top, due to a quite very soft carbonation. Nice intensity in the aroma. Medium to full body. Oily texture. Pleasant balance between sourness and acidity. Oak, vinous, mild vinegar, fruity and toffee.

In aroma bit acetic, mainly sweet caramel and raisins notes, notes of cherries and red wine are also present. Dark red clear colour with small beige head. In taste mainly sweet, caramel and bready notes; little acetic and sour, red wine notes and cherries are also present, little tart but ends fairly sweet. Full bodied, sweet, but not overwhelming, medium carbonation. Nothing on the wild side, pretty mild and sweet.
