Night cap for me. Nice and easy drinking sour ale. Could quite possibly have a few of these without getting overpowered by it.
P.s. i love the aroma that these flemish sours are putting out. Very vinegary with the smell, but the taste is so completely different.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2015 This is quite tasty. A great color, dark maroon. The sourness is pretty solid. Good and much cheaper than their others.
First rating was a 3.3 Must have been too old. Has way too much vinegar in the nose. The flavor is also just slightly funky to me. The sourness is light, but could be better all around.

Fairly undemanding session beer with that touch of sourness to keep it interesting. I have to admit I was slightly disapoointed by this, I was expecting something bigger tasting. Still, it’s clearly a beer aimed at a wide audience and there’s no doubt it tastes excellent.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 Not as quirky as the Grand Cru, but equally as good. A refreshing sour beer that I’d gladly drink more of, if it were available near me.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This starts with an aroma of raspberries and oak. It pours a clear reddish color, with a thin off-white head. A nice tart flavor, with a hint of sweetness behind it, nice and refreshing in the summer heat. A great introduction to sours.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(25 cl bottle, purchased at Ölbutikken, Copenhagen) BB 18 April, 2007. Labeled 5.2% ABV. Shady dark copper color, small tan head. Spicy and fruity scent, but mainly acidic and lactose. Also malty and raissin. Very apparent lactic sourness, some malt. Rather weak body, medium high co2. Low bitterness, though some biting into the sides of the toungue. Red wine aftertaste. Not one of my favourite beer styles, though the beer itself is not really bad either.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2012 Re-rate 9/8/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Nice deep red color. Musty aroma with cherries, cellar, vinous oak notes, malt and caramel. Sweetish flavor with light sour notes, a bit of oak, malt and some fruitiness. Medium-bodied. 7/4/6/3/13=3.3
Bottle in some small café in Brussels. Clear red-brown with a beige head. Nice fruity aroma with malt and slight acidity. Feels somewhat damp and cellary (probably the effect of the oak casks). Flavor has sweetness, nice acidity and cherries. Medium body. Nice stuff. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4
