Beer pours (in flute glass) a dark red-brown liquid with caramel colored head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin film. Aroma is of sweet mellon, and fruit. Flavor is of sweet fruit, and caramelized something. Very good. Has character. Nothing to be ashamed of. Sampled at 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Ma 2e Oud bruin après la Rodenbach. Celle-ci est moins sucrée avec un profil fort boisé dégageant des effluves acides fuitées. En bouche, c’est un corps fort léger, très agréable à boire qui offre des arômes de fruits de bois (cassis, myrtille) et une belle rondeur. Sur la fin, il ne me reste presque pas d’amertume, juste un peu ce goût acide assez désaltérant et cette belle rondeur légère qui rend la bière moelleuse, mais assez courte cependant. Plutôt que pour la dégustation, on dirait plus une bière pour la soif .

User_Ex ordered me a bottle of this stuff while at the bar at BJ’s in Irvine waiting for our table; my taste buds were just beginning to recover after the 2 hour car ride back from Stone’s VI anniversary festival. Fruity, musty aroma with a hint of bubblegum. Earthy, spicy, lactic (balances hint of fruit sweetness well), almost saison-like, taste. This stuff evokes images of Belgain barnyards. Delicious.

Pours deep burnt read with a sizeable head. Aroma of grapes, dates, caramel and vanilla. No hops present. It almost tastes like a mix between coke and red wine: mild, acidic, and fruity. Dry on the mouth, a bit thin. Almost reminds me of a cider. What flavour it has is nice, but lacks complexity and is weak.

Not in the class of Rodenbach, but an excellent sour ale. Nice sour, yeasty aroma. Pours a nice brownish-red with minimum head. Nice Brussels lace after drinking. Delicious flavors..sour, sweet, tart, crisp. Beer became a bit thin on the palate towards the end as beer warmed. Very drinkable.

I can’t really give this beer a fair rating, since the bottle I had was a bit mistreated. There was rust under the foil and on the cap. The taste, when poured, was still somewhat enjoyable, with dry, tannic, burgundy wine flavors . The finish though was slightly watery, and extremely metallic, like sucking on a penny. Not sure if this had anything to do with the rust on the bottle but its a very good chance that it did. Overall, I’ve decided not to buy beer from this particular store anymore.....

its like the flemish sour for beginners. the ipa before the double. mine didnt pour with nearly the head thats in the picture and i cant see how it ever could. it was gone shortly after i set the glass down. i drank it from an arrogant bastard glass which made it better.

Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - JAN 31, 2004
UPDATED: APR 14, 2004 Bottled. Dark red-garnet colour, creamy light nut-brownish head, fully diminishing. Malty aroma (walnut, toasted bread), fruity (dates, preserved plums with their syrup and clove, weak cherry), wet wood, lactic acid. Taste is light-sweet and sour, very refreshing. Retronasal wet woody, cherry skin and stone. Light body, watery texture. Quite sour-dry dark beer.
