3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear dark reddish amber with frothy off-white head & lace. Aroma is vinegary & sour with hints of cherries. Flavor is cherries, plums, a hint of malt. Finishes dry with an "almost past the due date"-wine finish. Interesting. Would like to try again.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from The Beerhive.
Small off white head, light bubbly lacing. Cloudy reddish brown body. Nose is sour apples and cherries. Flavour is sweet and sour at the same time, apple, cherry, tart lemon. Bit of a wine flavour on the finish. Great mouthfeel, light carbonation with a big swell on the tongue, dry finish. This is magic.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From tap. Pours hazy brown’ish/red’ish, with an off white head. Aroma of sour berries, hints of vinegar, currants, lots of acidity. Taste is huge on the red berries, tart, vinegar, bubblegum. High drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Pours clear reddish brown with a frothy head that diminishes quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of sour cherries, balsamic vinegar and dry oak. Initial taste comes on strong sour cherries, lightly sweet but dissipates quickly to a watery palate, average carbonation and a even weaker finish. Better than i initially thought.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown body, slightly opaque, medium-sized beige head, mostly lasting. Spices, vanilla and even earthy notes (wood) in the aroma. Initally sweet, then dries out and gets hoppy and sour, ending with a strong vinegar note. Too strong and unbalancing, actually - for me, at least. I would probably appreciate it if it was less winelike. Since I can't believe that the famous RGC can't be better than this, I will probably try it again in the future.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pous redish amber with no head. Aroma of viniger, not much else. Taste is sour, carbonated viniger! Sour Ale, something different. Not really my thing.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity and roasted malt aroma. Light sourness. A special aftertaste comes long after the sip. It reminds of oven dried olive in the pizza.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured clear deep red-brown with a thick creamy off-white head. The aroma was complex; vinous stewed cherries, grapa, dried grapes, some hops at the beginning, faint caramels, and some dark spices. Definitely sour!! Quite puckering with a lactic feel towards the end. Assertive fruit flavours, so much so that one could be mistaken for thinking it was some sort of fruit beer. Very prominant acidity, tartness, and whilst initially sweet it finishes with exceptional elegance and balance. Despite this I didn’t like it. I found its overexcited, brash sourness detracted from the obviously exceptional flavour. Nevertheless, it deserves a high rating.
