Rhubarb and cherry aroma. Crisp and smooth with a hint of sour. Much better than the normal Rodenbach.

750, corked and baled. Thanks for the tip, N! Pours a murky dark crimson with a loose pink fizzy head that fades pretty quickly. Tart nose, showing a nice balance between cranberries and tart cherries up front, then balsamic and raspberry in the background. Creamy medium body with lively carb, almost fizzy at first. Cherries and cranberries, then balsamic and berries on the mid palate. Long tart finish. Lovely.

1990 vintage bottle at DHVL shared. Pours clear amber with a bubbly ring tan head. Aroma of big sherry notes up front, a touch of cheese, light mould, oxidization, toffee, woody notes and light tart overripe dark fruits. Flavour is over moderate sweet and moderate sour. Big sherry sweet palate developing into a sharp citric touch in the finish. Over medium bodied with near flat carbonation. Very nice and has held up well after all the years.

Bottle a huge thanks to ditmier for pulling out this gem. Pours out hazy brown with mahogany highlights (ya one of the last pours for me a little sludge) topped with almost no head. Aroma was very nice sweet honey, cherries, dust, vanilla, and caramel. Taste was also very nice the sweetness still holds up. Cherries, vanilla, vinegar, light tart, and ends with light sour fruit notes. Thanks again Eric for sharing this.

Bottle at DC beer gathering. Tart cherry pie with vanilla shoved in to a bottle. It’s very good. Right amount of tart that starts in nose and follows down the gullet. The sugar level is just slightly off, can’t put my finger on it. But would definitely have more
