1st sour beer. tastes refreshing with hints of sour apple. Sourness is present but not overly sour. Would buy again.

Poured into tulip a red tinged figgy brown with haze. Head tan and short to last, some lace. A sour cherry aroma that translates into taste. A little sweet in the early taste but turns slightly sour but never overbearing. Little aftertaste and finishes quite abruptly. Spurs are not on the top of my list but I liked this one.

Interesting brew, don’t think I’ve ever had something like this before. It is sour and refreshing, mild and tart. Not too much in the ’beer’ mainstream at all. Definitely a summer brew. Don’t remember this from a hasty ’beer tour’ of Belgium some years back, but there’s a lot I don’t remember from that particular jaunt. Probably my first sour, and I’m intrigued.

Habanero (2927) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2015
Bottled. Pours dark reddish brown with an average tan head. Aroma of sour cherries, berriess, wood and vinegar. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Light bodied, watery texture and soft carbonation. A nice Sour.

Pours cloudy brown with no head. Unfortunately I get zero aroma. Very sharp, vinegar taste. Not pleasant at all

geologyguy (861) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Smells like medium dark fruit...plum.. appearance is a brownish red, flavor is also of plum off the bat but falls flat quickly... Finishes with almost yeasty finish... Goes downhill the more you drink

Brewbie (458) - New York, USA - FEB 23, 2015
12oz bottle. dark ruby color. little head. aroma of dark fruit, cherries, a bit of sweetness. First sour red I’ve ever had. Wasn’t really expecting the tartness. Not over powering at all, just a nice cherry tartness. Very enjoyable and looking forward to trying a few others. Like to try this on a hot summer evening.

Piana drobna, brązowa, szybko opadła. Kolor brunatny, zmętnione. W aromacie zapach soku malinowego. Lekkie nuty chmielowe. Podobnie w smaku, wyczuwalne maliny. Piwo jest kwaskowate, ale nie na zbyt wysokim poziomie. W drugiej nucie lekki nuty brązowego piwa. Wysycenie średnie, bardzo pijalne piwo.

25cl bottl Appearance: Murky redish brown with a decent beige head which goes down quickly. Aroma: red fruit,, apples, hints of wood, acidic,, Taste is moderate sour. Light malts, some cherries,apples and a hint of wood faintly in the back. A little bit thin. Low carbonation,thin body. Classic i it’s style but better go for the grand cru version.
