beastiefan2k (2830) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2008
2nd rating of Belgian trip on 5/16/08.
Pours a very dark reddish brown color with a medium thick head that never goes away and just covers the sides of the glass. Aroma hits you strong with spoiled, starting to fester, dark cherries. It tickles the nostrils a bit and has some earth and soil dark malts to balance it out a bit. Taste is calmed down on the spoiled aspect but more like drippy dark cherries that are still edible. At the end of the flavor there is a seltzer feel with a slightly wild flavor. It finishes simple and refreshing with a hint of sweetness to bring it all together.
25cl bottle @ Le Bier Circus, QdC large snifter/tulip glass, dated bb 06/06/09.

Bottle. Thanks to TheWolf. Pours brown/amber with a creamy off white head. Sour vinous/vinegar aroma. Some sweet caramel malts. A good deal of sour dominates. Good brew!

Bottle. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours deep mahogany with a fine, creamy beige head. Aroma has lots of lactic acid (youghurt) and light caramel. Fine mouthfeel. Flavour is softly sugary with an okay balanced tartness.

JoeinDahlem (1377) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2007
Easily one of the better Flemish sours I’ve had. Bottle sampled at La Porte Noire in Brussels. Pours dark brown with ruby highlights, small tan head. Big nose full of cherries and balsamic... very inviting. Well-balanced sweet-and-sourness, with a tangy, mild bitterness. Lively but restrained bubbles dancing over the tongue. I did hope for a somewhat dirty/musty finish, a la Duchesse, so a minor letdown there. But now I’m all revved up to try others from Vanuxeem...
