A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2004
Bottle, (300ml).Pours dark, clear and a very slight head that stays around for a while. Winey/champagne aroma. This is a new experience for me, the beer is very nice, with a sweet/sour taste, slightly fruity, lots of Sherbet! it sticks to the lips! Very very nice beer, tart.

presario (4828) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 17, 2004
Small fizzy off-white head as opposed to the beauty in the picture. Cloudy dark brown with hints of orange. Heavy malt aroma and light hops. Notes of cherry and wood and an edge of vinnegar. Medium but lively and zesty mouth feel. Flavour is tart and SOUR, first sip gives you goose bumps. A little sweetness and a touch of salt in the taste. Classy offering.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 17, 2004
Wonderful complex aroma including molasses, cherry, port. Pours a cloudy ruby with yeast floaties, off-white head. Lively mouthfeel with medium body. A roller coaster of flavour, starting with a fruit sweetness, slight hops and a very sour finish. All comes together very nicely.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Bottle at Plan B, Copenhagen. So beautiful appearance, ruby with a good tan head. The nose is very strong cherry. alcohol, sour, tart, dry and some vinegar. The flavor is just as astonishing, barnyard, balsamico vinegar, cherry, very chewy flavor. Sprakly. Whoa, this is a beautiful beer!

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAY 16, 2004
This was gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. I used to think that lemonade was refreshing; now I know better. This beer with the leather/oak/cherry/vinegar nose and the sweet/tart balance approaching divinity...mmmmmmmmm. I want more, more, more...Thanks to wunderbier for the incredible trade.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Pours a clear red/ruby colro with a medium sized head that dissipates into a small off-white even head. Aroma is very pronounced. Cherries and vinegar dominate. Wow, this is intriguing. Some light woody notes buried behind the cherry/sour/tart aromas. Flavor is truely excellent. Starts a sweet/tart punch in the face that mellows into a masterpiece. This is one of those beers that you just have to say in a loud voice, "This is SOOOO good." Anyway, the body is medium and finishes dry. Wow, this is really, really good. How can I get more of this?

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Recently acquired bottle from my Brothers trip to Belgium (Thanks!). Why dont they import this truly remarkable brew? Wonderful amber/red in color, nose sour as expected for the style. Taste was superb, sour cherry, slight balsamic vinegar in there too. It finishes as well as the start. If you can get your hands on this, do yourself a favor and buy out the store!

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2004
Sour fruity nose, poured a deep red with a quickly vanishing white head. Surprise surprise - sour cherry flavours with a sour bitter finish. Bah, now I have to go back to the 'ordinary' Rodenbach to see which one I prefer. Good.

Sampled @ Helsinki Beer Festival 2004
Dark chestnut red, beige lasting head. Nose is very sour and wineous. Medium body, sour, wineous and dry flavor. Not a thirst-quencher but decent beer, altought too sour for me.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2004
This beer has a red/brown body - hue apperance and a fine light red scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a low carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is very acid and i don't like this beer at all.
