Lovely looking beer - a nice dark brown. Murky. Almost didn’t 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.

Appearance - deep red brown. Finger head. Aroma - sour funk Mouth - high carb bite at the front that dies quick Taste - light cherry. Not very sour. Very lite fruit. Overall - good beer but I like my sours to be mouth puckering.

arondee (545) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Pours a dark brownish red color. Aroma is sweet malt, vinegar, and cherry cough syrup. It’s got that familiar Flanders red smell. The taste is very slightly sour, sweet, malty, cough syrup, and barrel flavors. I like it, especially for the price.

YigSvartka (58) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
Served cool, minimal head. Aroma consisting of sour cherry infused with malty caramel. Initially the malt/caramel is the most prominent taste, but the sour ale flavour slowly follows and maintains its bitterness and mild hops for a short period after. A delectable fusion of styles and definitely one of my favourites.

I don't like sours, but cold this brew pleases nonetheless. Palate is sweet effervescence, contrasting nicely with the dark red brown coloring and rapidly disappearing head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VDuquerroux (219) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 27, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 Bottle, 25cL. Home. A dark sparkling mahogany beer with a medium thin white head. Poor persistence. Aroma of vinegar, wood, roasty malt. Medium sour waves balanced with medium sweet. Refreshing. Light body, watery texture, average to soft carbonation, sour finish with a sugary sweet touch. Overall, a good sour/sweet beer with a nice woody aroma. Nevertheless, hard to be compared with Rodenbach Bach Grand Cru "classique" or limited editions

MrSquash (28) - Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Slightly tart in taste and smell. Mild Oak character balances well with the sourness. A little bit earthy.

Wittales (619) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Appearance was clear dark cherry with off white creamy diminishing 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are cherries, raspberries, brown sugar with soft acidic nose. Taste are tart fruits of cherry, raspberry, grapefruit, molasses sweetness with an acidic bite. Palate was soft tiny CO2 with light body, lasting fruity acidic sour finish. A easy fruity sour to begin with.
