This is another great beer. Not for amatuers. You probaly won’t fall in love with it the first time but after a couple you’ll learn to like the tangy taste

Pours a caramel, dark honey color with a frothy off-white head. Smells of white grapes, melon and sour cherries. Feels almost champagne like in the mouth, a nice soft palate with great tartness. Tastes almost sweet, though i think thats the wrong word. White grapes and cherries for taste, with nice lacing in the glass.

Brown color but has a brightness to it. Some good red hues running thru it. Big head that dies right away. Good aroma-sour cherries and a trace of oak. Sour smelling. Perfect blend of sourness and fruit. Just a hint of oakiness. The sourness is just right and balanced with a nice sweet finish.

750ml bottle poured into tulip. Pours a nice brown/copper with a finger-thick head. Aroma is mostly of green apples, but I can also perceive some sour cherries in there, and some slight barnyard aromas in the far background. When it comes to sours, my nose is not that good honnestly...this is really all I can perceive! Taste is medium sour, medium sweet; this is really well done and balanced! Body is medium, texture is rather slick, really nice. Carbonation is average and accompanies the tartness in a nice way. Finish is pretty sour and astringent. Overall, one of the best sours I’ve had, and possibly the best Flanders-type of ale I have every had. Mind you, this is the first genuine I’m having, as the others I’ve had were Quebec-made interpretations. This is the real deal, and it has earned its rating and reputation. A well done, superb sour ale.

At the brewery. Beautiful head, great reddish golden color. Tart aroma, with a bit of sweetness in the background. Exceptionally dry and tart. A very nice thirst-quencher. World-class!

Cherry wood color, quickly dissipating head. Smell is balsamic vinegar, woody, some cherry, tart, and sweet. The taste is almost lip puckering, grapefruit, and lingering tart.

33 cl bottle. Red-brown color with some head. Aroma of cherries and something sour about it too. Tart and sour in flavor, with some yeast coming thru. Has a more sweet and smooth finish that leaves a dry and bitter taste on the palate. All in all a very fruity beer.

Bottle, bb 22.09.16. Ruby coloured, a bit hazy with beige head that is quickly disappearing. Aromas of fruits, sourness, and some woody notes. Complex taste with distinct sourness balanced by fruity sweetness and tannin bitterness. Very good.

Every time I retry this beer, my palate is blown away. Beautiful dark fruit, cherry, slight oak and earthiness. The taste starts and end with a beautiful building sour flavor that is enhanced by the oak and balanced with a little sweetness. Dry finish with that fruit, oak and sour flavors lingering for a little while. Gorgeous beer.
