3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a medium sized off-white head that slowly settles to a ring. Quite acidic aroma, with some malt, fruit, acetic acid and funk. Medium sweetness, some fruit such as grapes, but dominated by a tart vinous acidity. Light-medium bodied and oily, lively carbonation and a lingering tartness in the finish.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mahogany red and small off-white head. Sour aroma, vinegar and very much of basement, berries as well. Same goes for taste, finish is long-lasting and sour. (Bottle)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear, dark garnet brown, with fizzy, collapsing offwhite head. Nose is very vinous, with a strong oaky character, like wooden balsamic vinegar. On the palate tart cherries leap to the front, to slowly recede into mild dark caramel and faint chocolatemalts and medicinal tingly hops. Really well balanced, with a nice moreish finish. One of the better flemish sours I’ve tried, and much, much better than regular rodenbach.

Expectations was high so maybe thats why it doesnt crush me..
one of my first sour beers,
in my sentense I can say its like cheap russian ’champagne’ with cherries (but in a good way - very positive feeling)
it has something noble in taste also. its sourness funny pinches tongue.
high carbonation. very drinkable.

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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
W aromacie bukiet kwaśnych owoców - wiśni, niedojrzałych malin, wczesnych jabłek. Poza tym klimaty młodego, białego wina. Barwa brunatna, klarowne. Piana średnio pęcherzykowa, niska. Fenomenalny smak wiśni i malin skontrowany słodkimi, białymi winogronami. Fajne wysycenie, bardzo orzeźwiające piwo! Z kieliszka wypełnionego tym trunkiem aż bije szlachetność! W ustach pozostaje dobrze wyważona kwaskowość i delikatna słodycz.

Bottle, pours dark red with white head. Aroma is cherries, white wine, funk, yeast. Taste is heavily sour, light sweetness. lively carbonation. Hard to rate, dont know what I think, dont really like the style so much but still very interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A reddish beer with a vaguely brown head. Aroma is fruity with cherry and port dominating. The flavour is PANG, straght forward fruity and sour with a very balanced funky flavour. Really good with loads of port character and a great aging potential.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small off-white head, disappearing quickly. Minimal lacing. Opaque dark-red. Smells of oak, plum. Sweet & sour. Tastes of dry plum, chocolate yoghurt, hints of tart cherry, oak. Dry. Reminded me of calimucho, in a good way. Light body, goes down easily. Slight bitterness balancing the sweet & sour. Would drink it again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice burgundy color with an off white head that quickly disappears. Sour, vinegar smell. Even more so in the flavor. Quite refreshing and thirst quenching, but it is becoming too much as I reach about the half way point of my 750 bottle. A classic that I will revisit at some future date.
