3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle, 0.25 l, from Kihoskh, 20110417) The beer poured red and quite clear. Its head was very small and pinkish. Aroma had cherries, wood, sourness, cherry stones and mildly solvent. Palate was medium bodied, warming and quite dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were sourness, cherries, sugary sweetness, wood and hint of bitterness. Aftertaste had sourness and cherries. I would have liked this better if the beer had had less alcohol, Now the burning hid some of the pleasant flavours.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
250ml pink waxed bottle.
It pours a rosy pink with orangeish golden hues at the edge with a fizzy/foamy white head that quickly fizzles away. It has some pretty big carbonation bubbles.
It smells super acidic. The cherry is there, and that is about it. Clean and simple.
It is pretty tart but not extremely sour. It has a nice cherry flavor and a nice lemon citrus. It has some sweetness too.
"Looks like brandy, tastes like a Warhead." ----

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brownish as it comes out of the small bottle. Once in the glass it is a brilliant red with a slight brown tinge. I had to force a head to form by pouring straight. It didn’t stick around and was quite the lackluster performer. But in this style of beer I don’t expect much carbonation to help out. Slight vinegar. Quite a sour nose. There is hints of fruit in there as well, but the acetic aroma overpowers it. Much like a sour beer should be, but not a lambic. Very pungent. Slight nail polish remover aroma as well.
Tart, acidic and much like drinking red wine vinegar. A little, albeit faint, hint of sweetness.
Pucker-inducing. This is by far the most soured beer I have had to date. Very thin, no carbonation unless forcibly stirred up - and then it’s really not carbonation to begin with. A slight, slight sweetness on the back of this, but you won’t remember it after a bit.
I find it very palatable. But then again, I love the sour beers. The pungent, acetic-ness is a little off-putting, but it is good for the beer that this is supposed to be A SOUR ALE. And it is much like a Rodenbach Grand Cru.
