3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to Leffe glass, beer pours a hazy dark red/brown with a small white head that fizzles out. Aroma consists of sour fruit, apple, cinnamon, spices and some vinous notes. Complexity is high.
Taste is sour fruit, backed by a good malt backbone and itís somewhat similar to black forest cake albeit not as sweet.
Palate is somewhat watery but the beer finishes quite dry. Carbonation is low for a Belgian and itís not as robust in body as Duchesse de Bourgogne which does take away from this a bit. The sourness needs better balance as the beer seems a bit weak.
Overall...not a bad beer but not something Iím going to seek out on a regular basis.

It had a deep reddish brown color with some visible carbonation. Its head was small and slightly pinkish tan color. The head slowly recedes, leaving some nice lace behind on the glass. The aroma has sweet and sour fruity notes with some sharp acidic cider vinegar notes. Wow very interesting! The range of flavor is amazing. It starts off with sour apple cider vinegar notes over a light malty flavor. This quickly turns to a more sweet/tart fruity flavor with cherry notes and some hints of musty oak. Next up is a slightly dry, mild earthy bitterness. For the finish it turns back to a semi-dry, tart/sour flavor that slowly fades off the tongue. Itís about medium bodied and the carbonation feels light and a bit fizzy. This is a very complex and interesting beer. It is a slow sipper that is very enjoyable small amounts

Tasted from bottle. Pours a nice dark ruby with beige head that rapidly fades. Aroma is sour with dark fruits, brown sugar, spices. Taste is moderately sour. Flavors of cherries, prunes and spices. Not overly tart so it's good if you aren't a huge sour fan. Not as complex as some I've tasted but still very good.

Bottle at home from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a slightly hazy reddish brown color with a medium sized beige head that didnít last. The aroma and flavor have tart/sour dark fruits, vinegar, cherries, funk, light musty oak, with some mild spice. Lighter nose, moderate carbonation with a medium body. Solid introductory sour that one could drink all day.

Lovely looking beer - a nice dark brown. Murky. Almost didnít catch the head. Very thin and fleeting. No lacing at all. Smells of sour apples. Tasty. Very clean and very light. Hardly any after taste at all. A perfectly neat, clean finish. This beer reminds me of eating the skin of unripe grapes.
