3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Bottled: Dark reddish coloured. Clear. Nice yellowish head. Sour, sweet and fruity aroma. Not distinct flavoured. Light watery. Some faint sourness and sweetness. Nice dry finish. Not the best flemish sour ale i've had.

hmmm...an odd beer to try.
Smells like a glas of "Glühwien"
Nice looking with lots of carbonation
Tastes of sour cherries and it lasts a long time! Very refreshing, I think I´ll have another one :)

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...?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
