Bottle from Etre Gourmet. Pours cloudy red lilac with a small pinkish diminishing head. Aroma is red berries, sweet, acidy, very fresh; devine. Flavor is sour a bit tart, very berry, fruity, so refreshing. Fantastic session beer, so good.

This beer has a deep red colour with a reduced limited foam-head. Great balanced fruity taste with acids that are in balance. The full fruity taste is long lasting on the pallet there is no hop taste but a refreshing aftertaste and complex alcohols .

What a good way to start the weekend, a fine drink while waiting for invitees to show up. Pours clear red, fruit juice like really. Head doesn’t linger for too long and lacing is minimal. Nose is really nice, with red fruits, balsamic notes and a hint of sour. Taste is not quite sour to the point of being puckering but it is enough to make it highly drinkable and refreshing. Flavors are again like a fine balsamic vinegar mixed with some organic fruit juice. This is really, really good to me. This pretty much settles the war between Rodenbach and Verhaeghe in my cellar, Rodenbach FTW! This is WAY better than the Echt Kriekenber and even than the Duchesse too. I’ll need to stock up on these I guess!

Bottled. Pours hazy amber with virtually no head. Aroma of red berries especially cherries and vinegar. Sweet/sour flavor with fruity elemrnts, that ends up more tart. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft CO2. A very nice and crisp sour. ★★★★

Drunk with Dom and Dan. Totally delicious. Like a smoother less sick tasting version of their Gand Cru, yet oddly not quite as good. I need to rerate that. Big cheers to Richie btw

Nothing on the bottle, not even a whisper. Lights survived this one as well. Cherry cough sweets, light and airy. Good, but the company it was in last night was challenging.

Beautiful beer all round. Look is light reddish pink, which makes complete sense when you taste the raspbeery sweetness coming off the brew. Taste is light sour with bright berry flavour. Very refreshing and fun. Nice finish - sherbert-esque. Great beer all round. Refreshing and tasty.

@ Basunen. Fantastisk fin, rödlig färg. Doften kommer på en gång och är tydlig fruktig med störst toner av jordgubb. Smaken har en fin och sammetslen syrlighet, känner även den karakteristiska sötman från de vanliga Rodenbach men även en tydlig fatton. Mycket gott!
