750 ml corked bottle. Red amber colour with a lasting fizzy tan head. Fruity and acidic, lightly oaked, light balsamic aroma. Acidic, juicy cherries and other berries, mellow sourness plus some yeast and dusty character. Light bodied but very refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2013 2013-06-17. Crisp dark red brown body, small off white head. Aroma of cherry fruit, light cherry pits and a cherry syrup undertone. Flavour of cherry fruit, lightly tart and tangy around the edges. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Decent,relatively simple. 7/4/7/3/14 - 3.5 On tap at Bar Hop, Toronto
2006-04-XX. Lightly hazy brown body with a small creamy beige head. (3+) Light fruity sour cherry aroma is a touch muted but pleasant. Flavour has a mild malt base, but with light fruity cherry that is pleasantly sour and tart throughout. Subtly pleasant and restrained, in contrast to the Grand Cru which I donít particularly care for. Much more palatable and accessible. Average palate. 6/4/8/3/16 - 3.7

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours reddish with a foamy white head. Aroma is kick your face in vinegar, and some sweet sugar. Flavor is like the skin on a grape, with a bit of alcohol. Nice balanced sour ale.

This pours hazy, the color of a tarnished penny. Soy, slight vinegar in the aroma. Itís a touch sweet in the flavor. Good stuff. Not too harsh, but bracingly tart.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Burnt caramel, deep ruby hues, moderate sand colored head, somewhat fizzy, fairly nice lacing. † Oaken nose, subtle unripened cherries. † Tart on the tongue, definite oak like dryness, but the cherry aspect is very muted as compared to the oak. † Moderate to full body and mouthfeel. † Dry starchy finish, leaves a coating on the tongue and teeth that isnít all that pleasant. † Decent, but needs to be a bit more fruity for me to take real interest.

Bottle from Austin Liquors in Worcester, MA. An excellent mildly sour beer. I was looking for a Petrus Oud Bruin but had to settle for this instead. I was pleasantly surprised. Lots of flavor, medium body (which seems light compared to most Belgian ales Iíve tried), wonderful aroma. Will definitely seek this one out again.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2006 A wonderful Flemish sour. Iím drinking this fantastic brew on tap right now and its pouring a beautiful reddish brown hue. The aroma smells a bit of grapes and a small hint of cherries. Once the first taste hits its very intense but perfect on the red sour wine and vinegar notes...which moves back into a small hint of cherries on the finish. Overall this wonderful Belgian is a great drink when just starting the night. Cheers!

Very nice color. Wonderfully sour. Sweet enough. Rather refreshing, but you must like flemmish sours.
