Lovely, dark dark red, reddish head fading quickly to release sour fruit - plums, cherries, a wiff of port. So sweet on the first taste, quickly resolving to a sour fruitiness. Lovely.

Whoa! If you donít know what to expect, this beer is quite the shock to the system. It is mouth-puckeringly sour, at least on the first sip, but mellows as you get used to it. It appears not to be too popular around here, as every LCBO has cases of it stacked around. However, I quite like it, though it takes some getting used to. Its sour character is nicely balanced by its sweetness, giving it a taste not unlike sour cherry candy or something similar. Itís a rich reddish-amber and really does have the sour cherry flavour. Excellent.

Has a nice, fragrant sour aroma, like wine. Pretty nice dark brown color, sort of like a cloudy cola, with a bit of head that takes a while to dissapate. Flavor is nice, obviously very sour, vinegary. Has a pretty nice body and texture, and decent carbonation. Overall, a very pleasant surprise.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A nose of cherry lambic, aged wine and oak esters. Color of cherry cider, but much clearer. A taste so tart it makes the tastbuds tingle and the salvilary glands kick into high gear. Very nice for something with such high acid. It would be wonderful with a roast duck. but I have none at present so it will do quite well solo.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 Intensely sour ale with a mild malty background. Nose of dark cherries, berries, plums, currants, wood, and earth. Mouthfeel is very puckering and acidic, rather thin. Additional notes of caramel, oak, plums, chocolate. Has a slight vinous quality, and the tartness lasts past the finish. More puckering and refreshing than the Alexander.

Liked this beer. Don't usually go for cherry flavored sours but the cherry flavor was mild enough. Good sour, sweet, but not too syrupy.
Big bottle from bw.

Pours a dark red with a decent head. Flavor is full of tartness, with a symphony of medium malts and dark fruits just behind it. Really a great beer, on par with Duchess de Borgogne, one of my favorite beers. If you like sour ales, you have to try this one.

This is an excellent beer and may turn me away from Lambics. Itís got a nice nose, an excellent sour fruit mouth, an a very thin head. Iíll be drinking more of this and will probably have a few bottles in my luggage on my return.
