Aroma is quite sour and acidic, with some hints of sweetness from the malt. Flavor is balanced between an initial sweetness and a lingering sourness. Sours arenít my favorite, although this one is not that bad

Taster @ Chuckís. This beer smells fantastic. Like a strawberry tart of some kind. Rather mellow as far as tartness is concerned. Great session sour.

The color was a deep amber red. The head was creamy, thin/medium bodied and light beige. The aroma was sour, fermented fruit, grapes, and somewhat aged. The flavor was not as tart as the aroma suggested. IT was tart, fermented fruit and some bitterness. The palate was smooth and the finish, clean.

Nice entry level sour as it is only slightly sour and has a thin effervescent body that while good is a bit on the thin side. Good Belgian funk and a tart sour fruit finish...an easy drinking Belgian.

Sample from a bottle at Collins Pub. Hazy red brown with a think cream head. Smells of vinegar, stone fruits, caramel, raisin and oak. Itís a very different sour taste--not too sour at all, actually. Dry. Lots of raisin and sweet. Taste disappears quickly. Rated highly because tastes and aromas seemed to keep changing, but still, wasnít a typical sour.

The beer has a beautiful appearance. The color of the beer is a beautiful deep ruby red. The beer is beautifully clear. You can see some amounts of small bibles rising towards the top of the glass. At the surface they create a thin drape of foam, which is the remainder of a larger frothy brown foam, which tends to collapse rather quickly. The smell of the beer is rather mild. Iíve expected some stronger aromas. I smell some sour yeasty barnyard aromas, together with a rather simple bread like malt aroma. I donít really smell the hops in the beer. There might be a little resinous hop aroma, but I canít clearly smell it. After the beer had warmed up a little, the sour yeast aroma gets a lot stronger and fils almost all of the nose. The taste is slightly stronger, but it isnít really my favorite. Iím not that into the sour Belgian beer types. Iím more a bitter hop/roasted malt type of guy. The flavor has a rather strong sour yeast flavor to it. The beer also has a dry sensation, because of the sourness. It leaves the mouth really dry, longing for a sip of water (or another beer). The beer has a small slightly bitter touch of oak wood, though I expected s stronger oak flavor. This isnít really my type of beer Iím afraid.

Pours dark chestnut brown with a puffy medium beige head, excellent retention. Rich malty aroma: caramel, biscuit, with citrus, yeast, and fig. Medium-light body, smooth, medium carbonation. Medium sweet, lightly sour, faintly bitter finish. Refined and subtle, enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Dark brown, untransparent color. Brown, medium sized, creamy head. Medium body, a bit creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Aroma is winey, funky, with oak barels aromas and basement with notes of red fruits. Taste is good balanced with soft to medium strong sourness and notes of caramel malts. Dry but not watery beer with interesant character of red wine.
