S: Tart rasberries, tart cherries, a little of those cranberries are there as well, light oak, wine, some wet hay and light vinegar towards the end. P: Deep reddish purple with a light white/pink head. T: Initially its sour but those berries do give it a nice sweet flavor. All the berries are well presented, a ton of wine on this one, with a hint of oak and a hint of hay. M: Highly carbonated with a light mouthfeel. It is very sour in the begining but finishes sweet. Wow, what a great beer, it is easy to drink and brings great flavors to the table.

Wow this is awesome. Everything I want in a Sour Red plus more. It’s all there slightly yeasty, with a funk and a hint sour cherry in the smell and taste. But you also get an added flavor of mostly tart cranberry with some raspberry. This is a must try if try if you like this style.

Blood red body, thin pinkish-white head, spotty lacing. Sour raspberries and cherries--all fruit. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, a little sweeter than I’d like--although not entirely unexpected from Rodenbach.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Shared with Edgar and Vanessa. Snifters. Pours a reddish color, clear, with a pinkish-white head. Head lasted a little and some lacing. Aroma is very aromatic with the raspberries and cranberries dominant. A hint of tartness with the cherries and an overall fruity goodness. The taste is just blissful. About as perfect as a sour fruit beer can get. You get all three with the raspberries, cherries and cranberries. It is tart, but not so much it seems acidic or overpowering with yeasts. It is also slightly sweet which brings forth the fruit flavors even more. Tart finish with medium carbonation. Very good.
