4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2004 This is some complex stuff. Redish brown in colour. Not much of a head, but a fair amount of carbonation. The aroma falls somewhere between sour cherries and cranberries, with a hint of red wine vinegar. The taste is quite similar to the smell, with some malt and cola notes mixed in as well. The palate was surprisingly light and fizzy, which made this beer quite refreshing. Overall, this isn't the type of beer that I could drink ALL of the time, but it's still fantastic.

Wehee - nice one and a good start of that evening accomplished by my great food at Belgo Centraal in London and Spiesy whom we met a few minutes ago. Nice dark brown color, hazy, Nice medium head, leaving laces, brussels laces of course, on the glass. Kind of sweet and acicid nose. Meaty, malty and acidic taste. Great!

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is malty and red wine vinegar. Reddy brown and cloudy with a fast diminishing head. Sour fruit flavours start to finish. Acidic, thin and bubbly. I am impressed with this but it's hard to say I am enjoying it.

Not very impressive, ruby red in color with a decent off-white head, light in body, flavors were way too sour for my tastes, sour finish as well

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cL bottle, goblet, 50 F. Strong caskwood, cherry, vinegar aromas are both sweet and sour. Thin, creamy, white head is slowly diminishing and sits on a deep brown-red body. Moderately sweet flavor is accompanied by a puckering sourness. Finishes somewhat toned down from the flavor. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: fruity, sour...er, I don't get it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep tawny brown with a short but lasting head. Very fruity sweet aroma mainly of cherries. Strong flavour of cherry also a little winey with a medium texture. After initial shock of tasting it, this beer went down well.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2005 deep amber, thick white head. the most complex aroma I’ve found in a flemish sour - brown sugar, mild solvent, wood, sour cherries, lemon, raisin, balsalmic vin and malt. "juicy" malt flavour firm and sour, yet perfectly balanced. amazing.
