3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very "polite" sour ale. Medium bodied, reddish-brown. The acetic aroma could be more perceptible. Initially nice frothy head after several minutes descends completely. Dark fruits in taste with some sour flavour. Overall nice beer but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur marron rougeâtre, mousse correcte et de tenue correcte. Vieillit en fût de chêne, assez douce de par son attaque un peu sucrée qui laisse ensuite une pointe acidulée et boisée. Plutôt réussit pour le style, se boit bien. Trouvée à Lidl - Hénin Beaumont.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from a bottle at Collins Pub. Hazy red brown with a think cream head. Smells of vinegar, stone fruits, caramel, raisin and oak. It’s 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, wasn’t a typical sour.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours off brown, maybe mahogany with head that does not retain for long.
Sour fruit, maybe passsion fruit and cherry, are dominant on the nose.
palate is medium sourness with a lot of passion fruit. Light bodied and somewhat medicinal, but still rather thin for what I was expecting.
Finish has unpleasant sour funk. sour should be good, but is funky here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A reddish brown hue with medium lasting beige head on the pour. Some mild lacing. Aroma of sweet sour tart fruit, a bit of sour grapes, some caramel malt, oak cask and vanilla notes. Taste has some oaky sour grapes almost like a red wine flavor, some malt as well. Palate is a medium body, smooth, with sweet sour and tart flavors on the tongue, with some touched of caramel malt and vanilla. Finishes with a sweet tart slightly sour grapes and fruity notes, yeast, some oak vanilla, slightly tangy notes and caramel malt. Overall a nice combination of sweet, tart and sour fruitiness and good malt balance. A very nice flavorful and drinkable brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a nice ruby-brown with a quickly thinning tan head. Aroma is tart fruit, mainly cherry and apple. Flavor is tart fruits (mainly cherry) mixed with some brown-sugary malt. A bit sweet for a sour ale, but also quite acidic, which cuts that nicely. Surprisingly refreshing on the whole.
