Decent tartness, perfume, bit of cherry, marzipan. Sourness and flavour comes in a hit, but the finish is sweet and lingering.

Served at 44°F in glass goblet. Cherry aroma up front with a hint of oak. Poured redish brown with an off white head, which dissipated relatively quickly. Natural cherry flavor up front. Not too sweet, not too sour. Would dare to say more of a tart flavor rather than sour. Noticed some hints of apples and white grape. Oak comes across in the background. Tart to slightly sour finish. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Very easy to drink.

Draft. Pours bloody red/maroon with barely any head. Aroma is fermenting grape, gym socks, wine barrel, must. Taste is sour, light/medium body, and deep. A bit of puckering here with the citric acid notes. Sour/black cherry and lemon stand out. Brown sugar (a bit). Good all the way through.

Transfer from BA review on 8-16-12 -
Served on tap in a snifter glass
Appearance – Served a deep ruby color with a small off white head. The head faded relatively fast to leave only a very light level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma was of a heavy sour grape and cherry aroma with some green apple and vinegar smells.
Taste – The taste begins of a fruity sourness. A puckering cherry and grape are most noticeable in the beginning. As the taste advances however a apple cider vinegar taste comes to the tongue and blasts the taste buds with a sour flavor. These take the taste to the end where a light yeasty flavor comes to the tongue along with a lighter dark fruit sweetness which ever so lightly mellow out the very vinegary taste.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is light and a little prickly with the carbonation level being above average. Both do a wonderful job with the very sour nature of the beer and make it quite drinkable.
Overall – While not really my favorite beer style, this is a nice and sour Flemish with a good flavor profile. It is classic for a reason.

Not much on the nose. However a large biting Taste of vinegar, sour and red wine. Tastes like a base of brown ale that has has sour added to it. Flavorful however had to drink a whole bottle of this I one sitting. Cheers.
