UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Bottle @ Heeren van Liedkercke - Pours between range-golden-light amber with thin lacing, no head. Nose of sour cherries, some wood, light oxydation. Taste of caramel, strawberry. Sourness is ruling, sweetness only comes in the aftertaste. Re-rated bottle @ home - colour is light amber, nose is more of apple and balsamic vinegar, nuts, plums, some orange peel. No oxydation, small simmering CO2. Taste reveals some raspberries as well.

Pour is an apple juice looking amber with no head. The nose is of green apple, sweet caramel malt, light vinegar, sour cherries and light acetic acid. Flavor follows the nose, sweeter and brighter cherries and less acetic. Creamy medium to full body with decent carbonation. Rather sweet and a touch vinegary with light carb to balance.

37.5 cl bottle, 2004. Clear pink brown with tiny bubbles but barely a head. Nose is white grapes, oak and wild raspberry. Medium light with a faint sparkle. Taste is sour watermelon, cranberry and white wine; hints of toffee and champagne vinegar. Lacks some vibrancy but still delicious.

375 ml, vintage 2004, foudre 132, shared by Mirjukka. Amber, almost no carbonation. Aroma of honey, sour mead. Taste has gentle sourness that balances and somewhat hides the sweetness of malt. Full body, sour finish. Overall, a beautifully sour beer.

In bottle, thanks Craig! Pours a dark golden colour with a lacy white head. Lovely aroma of balsamic vinegar, lemon, musty horse blanket and alcohol. Beautiful barley, balsamic vinegar and lemon flavours also. Mild carbonation. Superb!

This is one of the best Rodenbach products available. Although pretty high in ABV I really like the immense complexity of this beer. This is a combination of whine, beer and whiskey. Tasting the oak barrels very good. You can drink this one at Aba-Jour in Ghent.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 2004 Vintage bottle shared@Kulminator: appearance is incredible, no head whatsoever but it does lace a little bit, absolutely clear down to the point it looks transparent red going to slight orange/amber colour, sour yes but it also wonderfully balanced by a certain sweetness, acidic, tart cherries, lacquered wood, berries, malt, tart, funky, some sugar, slight brett, not getting any vinegar, both residual sugar sweetness mixed with tartness & nice acidic finish, incredible depth, more or less flat, amazing /// have had this many times since, no change in opinion
