Pours a clear, dark, reddish brown color with a small. off-white head. The aroma is strongly fruity and sour. Medium body with good carbonation, the flavor is strong with tart cherries and hints of oak. The finish is tart with a lingering, vanilla flavor. Very nice.

I had this after an Alexander, I should have done it in the opposite order, maybe I'd have been more impressed. Tasted a little like a watered down version of Alexander. I didn't taste the oak much. Some cherry flavor not a lot else.

Fine looking beer. Great head and color. But the aroma and taste was sour. Flavor has a bit of metallic and fruit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught: Golden brown. . . thin creamy head that will not go away. Not a hugely aromatic beer: hints of cherries, something metallic, and perhaps some thin whisps of a campfire. Thin, light, smooth mouth feel: tart, sour sugar and pears. Tangy sour finsih that does not linger very long. I have to say I was expecting a bit more, but was in no way disappointed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Pours brown/red color with a thick, off-white head. The aroma is a bit weak, but reminiscent of cherries and oak. the flavors, as they warm are quite nice. Sour cherry, vanilla, a bit of spice, and a lovely sweetness comprise the flavor. My biggest complaint is the lack of body. The flavors are nice, but are almost completely gone by the time you finish swallowing. The weakest of the Rodenbach family.

Big tart, vinuous aroma. Huge fluffy head & lovely colour. Very fruity complex flavour with some sourness (but not too much). Thin texture. Now if only I could get the Alexander or Grand Cru...?

Chesnut red color. Medium body with complex wine-like earthy aromas. Soured ale-like flavors with winey complexity and acidity. Different and worth a try.

1/12/03. Slightly opaque ruby brown color with a small head. Fruity yeast aroma. Cherry flavor with sourness and tartness. Medium carbonation and light, watery mouthfeel. I had much higher expectations for this beer. Enjoyable but left me wanting.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2009 Fruity srawberry aroma. Redwine-colored, the head was gone quickly. Malty/walnut notes, yet fruity in front of a nice sour background. The palate fills out the entire mouth and you sit back with a aftertaste like from a dry white wine.
