4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice ruby color with a thin white head. Sour aroma of cherries and yeast. The flavor is sour, fruity (cherries) and sweet. Sweet finish. Light body, vinous texture. The finish leaves a chalky mouthfeel. Very good, refreshing and complex.

bottled namur, belgium: after having the rodenback classic and being unimpressed i wasnt expecting much out of this one either. when palm took over brewing i think they have left out most of the key ingredients...flavor. this one a ’sour son of a bitch’ and i dont no what more to tell you. like goudenband its off the charts....i finally dug deeper to understand the sour ales and ordered some cheese with this...this is a must for lambics, sours and gueze. the flavor really is much better on the palate. then it came squeeking out... some fruit cherries and stinging grapefruit and earthy oak tones to counter after this....still trying to become a fan. maybe a re rate will be in order down the line.

Hard to rate. Sour, sour and more sour. Is it wrong or right?? There is something real special about it’s sourness....Try it, but check our teeth after!

soooo goood. If you like your sour cheery krieks and stuff, your going to love this. Awesome sour bacterial edge. Just plays havoc with your taste buds, in the nicest possible way. Excellent lingering fruity flavours, with that glorious sour backdrop. One piece of advice, buy atleats two bottles as one is never enough. Good session beer! Only %6 and just sooo tasty.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2006 From a 330 ml bottle, best before June 21, 2004. Even though I’m a month over the date on this one, it’s fantastic. Ruby tinted brown beer with a thick beige coloured head. Prominent sour cherry aroma with faint spicy character and earthiness and woodiness also being featured. Lactic sourness and as it warms some other dark stone fruits come out as well. Delicious cherry/raspberry flavour on the the front, some other dark fruity malts in the middle before a faint spiciness and a tight lactic/citrus acidity rounds off the finish. Excellent brew.

So complex and full of flavour. One could probably write a full novel about the taste alone. Dark fruits and their pits are all around, together with a refreshing summery mouthfull of all the red berries there are in the world. Expensive, exclusive and priceworthy.edit: missed the points.<i/>

Dark amber, with a little bit of reddish colouration, nice thick head. Aroma is of burnt caramel, oak and tree bark, also some fruit, mainly cherry. Very good tartness and resiny oak, heaps of cherry and a little grapefruit flavour.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2005 Reddish/brown color. Smells of oak and wine. Tastes of oak and cherries? Very
sour and acidic, yet quite refreshing.
Great balance between tart and sweet.

Due to expire on my birthday, June 21, 2004, it had noticeable sediment from the oak barrel which prevented the last drops, and takes away from its georgeous red-brown colour with lacing. Cherry and tart real vanilla that works through the roof of the mouth before eating,
