A light, bubbly, ruby red pour. Aroma smells strongly of tart cherry, a bit monochromatic. That quality permeates the entire experience of this beer: cherries are up front in the flavor, and the sour follows quickly. The finish won't decide between bitter and sour, and the ale never really presents itself. Despite the criticism, it is a well-made beer with complexities that begin to present themselves toward the bottom of the bottle. Worth trying.

Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. In the aroma cherries, wine, dust. The clear dark red beer has a small brown head. Lot of sweetness and sourness of the cherries. Vineux. Low carbonated.

Dark and strong for the style. Rich, sour cherry flavor. Almost syrupy and maybe a little bit overdone. This is more of a sipping beer than, say, a Rodenbach which I think of as a more light and refreshing type of beer. Solid but I’ve had better sours.

I think this is a bit underrated. Perhaps the thin filmy head distracts a bit but the deep ruby color is lovely, and the spritzy nose of cherry is very nice. The flavor is well balanced. The dry sourness of petrus comes through, as does the cherry. This would be a near perfect beer but it has just a touch too much sweetness, although it’s not artificial or candy-ish. Very good stuff.

ruigo (1075) - PORTUGAL - AUG 14, 2014
33cl bottle. Clear reddish colour with a nice off-white head. Fruit, tart and yeast in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is sweet and sour with some bitterness in the finish. Overall, a nice beer but... Not much my preferred style.

Deep cherry aroma. Cherry red colour with lace. On tap at world of beer charlotte. Tart with cherry juice flavour. Very drinkable. Tart mostly in the finish.

The combined taste of dark beer and cherries is quite extraordinary. Might be a bit too sour.

Had this at a fantastic tasting and had such a great time with great people and great beers! This reminded me of cheap grocery store brand black cherry soda.
