Borresteijn (4933) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2008
Bottle @ KBF in Geel. Reddish brown beer. Aroma of cherries, red wine, a bit tart. Flavour is sweet-sour, cherries, a bit malts. Just a bit too sweet for me. Not much carbonation.

ogivlado (5908) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 5, 2008
Bottled(250ml). -Reddish amber coloured, medium sized tan head, strong unpleasant stale wine barrell nose. The taste is basicly the same but a bit better. Moderate sweet and sour, short finish with notes of beet in the aftertaste. Not so good sour ale.

wyzzywyz22 (2037) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2008
Bottle, Kris Wines, London . Poured a ruby tinged brownish colour with a small head. Sweet n’ sour, yeasty malty aroma. Reasonably sour and tart flavour with sweet elements of caramel and some fruit. Not too bad.

beastiefan2k (2529) - 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.
