This beer is wothout a doubt the best i have had, It had an amazing cherry colour with amber notes. The nose was so complex with sour cherries, mocha, spices. The palate had a great sourness but it was also so smooth. The length was also incredible. This beer i could drink all day. Cheers to Duff for sharing, and Cheers to Duff’s mum for sending. I cant wait for this beer to land in Australia which is soon (September).

I guess I just don’t appreciate this style, as I’ve given this a second chance and the second time round it was atleast as unpleasant as I recall. Pours dark red with white fluffy head. Taste like red wine gone bad mixed with ginger-ale to me, but what do I know.

2006 (small bottle).
Big thanks to Mid for this one. Smells divine. Pit fruits, malty bread notes and funk. Looks wonderful. Perfect carb (someone took good care of this bottle).
Taste is of cinnamon, fruit, fructose and malt. Love this beer fresh but am obsessed with this beer with age, wonderful.

Astonishing Aroma: Malt vinegar, cherries, red wine, wood, I could smell this beer the whole day! When it comes to the taste, the acidity and the vinegar taste is just to much for me. I prefer the more balanced version with just 1/3 of old Rodenbach.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma strikes from an arms length away! Dark cherries. The kind with the stones left in and maybe out in the sun a bit too long...but this is a good thing! Vanilla, oak, perfumey floralness...sublime and complex nose. Color is a gorgeous ruby red, with slightly brownish tones. Carbonation is light and a tan head forms but fades fast. A nice dense ring sticks to the sides of the glass however. This beer begs to be tasted! Tart, acidic, puckering taste at first. Sharp fruitiness in the middle. A mesmorizing combination of flavors combine at the end. Oak, cherries, a little alcohol. This is a refreshing, spring time beer that is wonderful when sipped on a sunny day outside on your deck! One of the world's greats! Thanks for the trade Chazwicke!

Bottle 750ml. Poured into plastic cup (I brought it to a x-mas party). Color of raw apple juice. Little to no head. Nice cider like aroma. Very sour/tart on the palate. Finishes more sweet than dry. Not a bad brew at all.

Wow! Some rich cherry aromas to go along with a citrus tartness and oak richness. There is a medium body with more cherry a nice rich malty that is slightly hidden by the tart cherry. The finish is clean with hints of sweetness that balance the tartness.

Rich nose of sour cherry. The body is well balanced between sweet and tart, and has notes of cherry and grape.
