On Tap at the Hop Devil Grill, NYC. Pours a deep reddish brown with a bit of lacing on top. This is a truly wonderful beer but may not be for everyone. It has a hint of tartness which goes really well with seafood or heavy meats. It is well balanced with sweet malty caramel flavors and deeply rich like a good wine almost. Easy to drink, refreshing and not as sour as other Flemish sours.

Gehbe (41) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUN 12, 2016
Aroma fruity, red berries, black currant, some apple, hints of wood, spice and caramel. Tastes berry tart with some sweetness to balance, very light on the palate. Highly drinkable, not too complex but enough character.

chrisko82 (549) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 19, 2016
Piwo brązowe, mętne. Piany niemal brak. W aromacie kwaśne, trochę owocowe wino. W smaku łagodnie, ciekawie wyważone między kwaśnością i słodyczą. Średnia pełnia i wysycenie. Rześkie.

graziano85 (409) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 14, 2016
Draught. Brown hazy beer, with a small brownish head. Aroma is sour, vinous, oak wood, acetic. Taste is nicely sweet, perfectly balanced by the lactic/acetic notes. Medium body, sour finish lasting long in the mouth. Extremely refreshing, a great beer!

Hanoi (785) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Bottle. Nose is balsamic vinegar, raspberry hint of leather. Taste is balsamic, raspberry, slight sherry, wine, berry, only lightly sour. Mouth feel is thin. I’ve not had this beer in years always choosing the grand cru and in comparison it feels underpowered and a little bland. Drinking it I was always aware of what it was not rather than what it was.
