Sweet slightly acid aroma makes me want to sip and enjoy. Appearance: dark, steals the light. Taste is sweet and sharp, very pleasant. Not too bitter or harsh, very nice beer. Would highly recommend.

Mooi roodbruin bier met crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Fris zoetzuur aroma van krieken, hout, rood fruit. Zeer fris bier met die heerlijke zure toets met houten ondertoon. Een van de betere bieren in zijn soort. Zeer lekker !!!

Bottle. Pours deep red / ruby with brownish head. Aroma is vinegary / sour at first but this quickly changes as the fruit, especially cherry quickly comes through. Taste is sharp and malty with woody / fruity / acidic. This ale is very well balanced and is a joy to drink.

Bottle at home, from Beer Ritz, Leeds. Pours a great deep copper colour, with a finger or two of head that dies relatively quickly. Aroma of sour fruity goodness: green apples, grapes, serious funk. Taste is very similar, but more intricate, with a nice cherry character coming through. Nice medium body, perfect medium carbonation. Sharp and refreshing. Very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep reddish brown pour, off white ring for a head. Vinegar, cherry, oak and slight vanilla on the nose. Taste is a nice tart sour cherry with a vinegar note. Sweet with oak and a slight creamy vanilla note. Dry finish. Great sub for the empty duchese tap.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2016 Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2016:
Ottima birra equilibrata e complessa negli aromi.
Al naso si avverte l’amarena, il limone ed il cuoio. Nel bicchiere la birra è rossa brillante. In bocca la dolcezza e l’acidità si pareggiano alla perfezione e danno vita ad un lungo finale piacevole.

Had a boozy, fruity and vinous aroma and poured clear deep brown with red tints. The beer was sour and fruity with caramel notes and had a fizzy and dry palate. Overall this was a good big beer with solid flavors. It was very much like a wine and slightly acidic.

bottle, my first grand cru and this was not what i expected. very sour, tart with a lot of flavor. no bitterness and yet balanced with the other flavors. a new flavor profile that my palate needs to get acclimated with.
