OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, - JAN 6, 2006
Couleur brune aux reflets rouge foncé. Apparence presque opaque, moyenne quantité de mousse blanche concassée de nature plutôt persistante. Arômes fruités rappelant les cerises et les groseilles, puis le balsamique, le vieux bois et le jeune cuir. Saveurs inférieurement complexe aux arômes, faiblement maltée, une touche de sucre résiduel, boisée, acide acétique ainsi qu’une certe présence d’oxydation. Texture semi mince, faible carbonatation. Bouteille Délirium Café, Décembre 2005.

Maakun (3425) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear dark brown with very short lasting fizzy white head. Dried apricot, light balsamico, red berries, soft wood, dead leaves. Light grainy and brown sugar but not in a sweet way. Almost medium sour and very light sweet. Under medium bodied with fizzy carbonation and a bit dry feel. Better than I expected.

Grzesiek79 (3890) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 30, 2016
Acid, Acid and more acid, no sugar, wine aroma, grappe and totally acid. Good I love this taste. Super kwaśne winno octowe piwo, ocet balsamiczny, trochę wisni, winogrona ciemne. Bardzo winne i bardzo minimalnie słodkie. Mala piana w dodatku opada szybko ale w końcu bliżej temu kwasnemu ale do wina niż do piwa czy Ale. Kolo leciutrko metny bordowo brązowy, choć osadu starego czarnego na dnie było sporo, nie dalo się wybeltac tego. To swiadczy o długim dojrzewaniu w butelce. Super zapach sfermentowane domowe wino, jakby się nie udało lub zapach nieszczelnego słoika po latach z kompotem z wisni. Super Sour Red-Brown Flamandzki choć nie dla każdego bo widać to po niskich ocenach. Ale dla koneserow jak najbardziej.

Mesjasz (874) - Lodz, POLAND - APR 27, 2016
Aromat winny, winogronowy piwniczny i beczkowy. Smak lekko kwaśny, umiarkowanie wytrawny i minimalnie słodki. Smak winny, w sumie to doszliśmy do wina robiąc piwo. I to niezłe wino. Do tego fajnie zbalansowane o pijalne.

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2015
Bottle 25 cl from Bier-Bienne (CH). Reddish brown with a nice clear beige foam. Acidic nose, vinous, sugar and fermented fruits. The taste is similar, acidic, lactic, with a malted sweetness. Acidity replaces bitterness. Light beer, digestible, finale soft and fluid, without complications. A old style which, I hope, will persist.
