3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 33 cl (BB 06/2008).
Ruby red color, good off-white head. Nose has sour fruityness and metal. Grassy hoppy flavor, then sourness. Long aftertaste is again hoppy and sour. Slightly metallic. Quite balanced as a sour ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The beer pours a dark brown with a slight reddish tint. There is a thin layer of white foam.
S: The primary aroma is roasted malt. This is followed by a slight lactic acid scent and a decent combination of barnyard funk and oak.
T: I have not had too many beers of this style, so I was a bit unsure as to what I should expect. There is definite Brown ale character initially, along with a lactic zing. It is more sweet than sour, with lots of roasted malt and mild oak coming through. On the finish there are slight notes of dark fruits.
M: This beer features plentiful carbonation and a dry mouthfeel, which is something I really enjoy.
D: Moderate alcohol and an effervescent mouthfeel make this beer very drinkable. The flavors and aromas are good, but not great, so I doubt I will have this again at nearly $4 for a 330ml bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2003 An interesting example of the style. Has a rich maltiness that is undercut by a fairly sharp acidity, but by no means overwhelming acidity. Fruitiness is more prevalent here than in Rodenbach. Deep mahogany colour, a lot of cherry in the aroma. Wonderfully refreshing, though, which is key to this style.
2 years old:
Amber-burgundy colour is lovely. Fruity, woody aroma with grapes. Very wine-like. Effervescent body. The malts have fermented out a bit, but really this hasn't changed all that much. Sweet caramel, woody, plummy, cherryish notes abound, but little else. Just enough acidity to be quenching. Not bad, but doesn't appear to benefit from aging. Vintage rating: 3.2

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 5.5%. The aroma is clearly metallic. Cloudy dark brown colour, red shine. Small light brown aroma. The flavour is slightly malty with a faint acidity. Tastes OK, but I would have liked it sweeter and more acidic.
