3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pour is a reddish/brown color with a little bit of a head. Aromas are reminiscent of balsamic vinegar and tart cherries with some unidentifiable spices. Flavor is tart and has almost a soy sauce note to it that mixes with pie cherries and vinegar. Intersting and different, but not one of my favorite sours.

From a small bottle--This is the sour beer that started me on my path. Poured a unique red-brown body with a thin beige head. Vinegarette sour cherry nose with notes of oak and wine. Flavor grapples the taste buds (in a great way). Tart apply sweet and finished dry. I could drink more of this any day.

Bottle... Poured a reddish brown with a thin head. Smell of berries, other fruit and spices. Well carbonated, very champaign-ish, with rich fruit and floral flavors. Very sweet to the point of containing its tart character but very balanced.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 25 cl. Pours a dark brownish red with an off-white head and a rich smell of cherries, red wine, ripe oramges and citrus. Best beer I ever smelled! Taste is good too, mainly ripe red fruits, strawberry, cherries, red grapes. Maybe a bit one-dimensional in taste, but sure this is a really good beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
#750 250ml bottle. Bought in Milwaukee this summer before it was available in the KC area. Served a couple minutes out of a cold cellar (45-50°) in my NB snifter glass. Aroma is sour cherries, red wine vinegar, oak, vanilla, light colored brown sugar, and stone fruits. Smells nice, but milder than the Grand Cru. Reddish copper color with a small khaki head. Initial taste is raspberry, cherry, light oak, and vanilla followed by some oaky tannins, moderate sourness, tart cherries, blackberries and raspberries, maybe a touch of granny smith apples. The finish is lingering berries and light wood. Very crisp finish. Easy to drink, would be a nice session beer on a hot summer day. A nice starter beer for those wanting to get into sour beers or for times when one does not want to get assaulted amongst the head and neck by a bruiser such as La Folie.
