From a 330ml can on 4/1/2015. Pours a murky brown with a small head. Has a light, tart /sour nose. The flavour is a delicate balance between sweet and sour - cherries, plums, prunes, lemon and a hint of vinegar. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. This exhibits great balance. I often find sours too sour but this one really hits the mark. Very refreshing and extremely quaffable.

Something between red and brown, almost no head. Acidic aroma, some berries, vinegar, slightly woody. Lightly sour, medium sweetness. Flat, although drinkable.

Dark reddish brown, almost no head at all. Sweetish aroma with notes of cherry and malts. Taste is sweet and sour with notes of fruits, cherries and herbs. Dryish finish. Soft co2, slightly watery texture. Nice and refreshing brew. (0,25l bottle, bb 12.08.2016)

25 cl bottle. Very typical sour red. Rather sweet but not too much. Sourness is light. Easy quencher.

NBird (597) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2015
Looks.. Dark red a little brown/amber hue, sml head. Smells..danky old cherry funk, a little floral.. sweet wafer malts. Tastes..tart and a def little sour, cherry & funky fruity, balsamic, some caramel wafer malts before further citric bitter and woody oak dry finish. Loved over a long time and a couple of belgian trips this is currently my Christmas swill.. 5 x cartons for this festive season.. It obvs wasn’t brewed for West Australia’s 40+ degree summers, but damn it goes down so well in the heat. This beer gets extra points for being reliably great.

Bogus88 (117) - POLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Puszka 0,33 l. Aromat czerwonych owoców, na czele wiśnia, śliwka. Kojarzy mi się z winem. Barwa brązowa z rubinowymi refleksami. Piana beżowa, drobna, niezbyt obfita, szybko redukuje się do cienkiej obrączki. Smak dość wytrawny, kwaśny, wiśniowy, wyczuwalne też nuty innych czerwonych owoców. Finisz kwaskowy, dość długi. Wysycenie średnie.

Bottle at home, 13th December 15. Pours reddish, aroma fresh and fruity, taste is woody, slightly tangy. It’s OK not a patch in the grand cru and Vintage

mariuspoenari (413) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Ruby brown, murky, with a short-lived head. Smells like red grapes, or like a rose wine, with a hint of vinegar and caramel. Tastes like watered-down wine must. Light body with a nice acidic and refreshing mouthfeel.
