3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a medium brown with some reddish undertones and a large almost cream colored rocky head that was mostly lasting and produced some fair lacing. The aroma was quite complex with a nutty dark grain malt, an herbal hop and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of cherries, apple, sweet dried fruit and a mild alcohol wine scent. It tasted sweet, malty and fruity with hints of cherries and dried dark fruit in the beginning then became very tart with a nice apple vinegar flavor at the finish. Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body with the texture being watery at first and finishing quite dry. The carbonation was lively and a little bubbly. Overall an appealing sweet-sour flavor mixed with an abundance of fruitiness which hid the somewhat high alcohol content.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose: sour cherries and wet wood. Defiantly some funk.
Appearance: dark brown with khaki color head a lot of lacing but the head dissipates quickly leaving an oily surface.
Taste: a good brown ale with sour notes. Cherry and a cola sweetness come through.
Mouth feel: nice long finish with carbonation highlighted by the sour finish. A little thin in the mid palate
Overall: I like this it has the complexity to think did I miss that flavor on the last sip. It changes as you drink it
2012 750ml bottle.

37,5cl bottle from 2005 - batch from before the 2007 bankrupcy of Liefmans. Pours a dark red with smooth head. And the smoothness continues.. Soft cherry aroma and mild taste. Honey, barn yard, aged malt, cherry (!), framboise. Full bodied 'provision' beer!

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma - heavy on the cherry, light on the oak. Taste is complex; dark cherry followed by a nice oakiness and finishing with a lingering and developing tartness. Not too sour though - just enough to make it refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Birra a doppia fermentazione, prima spontanea come le classiche lambic e poi in bottiglia. Forti note acetiche sia come profumo che al palato. Una specie di "Duchesse de Bourgogne" ma meno acetosa. Molto più bevibile per palati non abituati all’acido!
