3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Time to taste a classic... Dark red brown colour, small, quickly disappearing head. Slightly sour, wine-like aroma. Damp forrest smell. Predominantly sour taste, winey, with a hint of mildew. Reminds me of Roquefort cheese. Honestly: not my kind of beer.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a red color. Sour aroma, not particularly fond of that. Taste is sweet and sour, some cherry or res berries. Fresh, sparkling, really something different from my regular choice. Not my style though.

From tap @ Delirium. Dark browh with a red glance. yellow brownish head. Nose: sour, wild yeast, cherries. Taste: wood, oak, cherries, some fruitiness. sourish finish, but still some sweetness in the back. Almost perfectly balanced, oh so refreshing. This is just a great beer!!

My wife and I took a beer pilgramige to Belgium. We knew that New Belgium Brewery’s first beer ’Abbey’ was started with the yeast from Rodenbach. So we had to stop in Roeselare,Belgium. After the tour we had a tasting. First comes the regular Roeselare beer which is 2/3 new and 1/3 aged. It was one of the best beers we’ve ever had. My wife loves sour, fruity lambic style beers. Then out comes the Grand Cru. Being 2/3 aged beer, it was one of the most intensely powerful and complex beers I’ve ever had. Especially being served in the Brewery. It was a dark red, plum tasting, sour Belgium style beer. It was the best stop on our tour of all the remaining Trappist breweries like Orval, Chamay, and St Sixtus.
As an aside, our tour was in Dutch. We got lucky and one of the ladies in the tour knew English and translated for us. If you are ever close, make it a point to go to Roeselare and tour the brewery. The rows and rows of giant wooden casks is an impressive sight to see.

Really well done sour, smooth and not too tart. Brown/ruby with spare beige/pink head. Aroma of sour cherries, peat, wood barrel. Taste is sort of cider-like, light bodied, tingly palate. Sweet, but not too much.

Bottle. Clear cherry/rust colored pour with a slick of off-white foam. Aroma is dry tart, vinegar, and sharper fruit like cherry. Taste is clean and even tart with vinegar and lingering tartness. Clean but not dry mouthfeel. Nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,33L bottle, BB 07.02.2015. Pours dark ruby-brown with tan head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is sour, sweet, cherries, and oak. Taste follows the nose, but adds pleasant touch of booze and red wine and vinegar notes. Overall: this feels more like homemade wine than beer; very interesting brew.
