Very different. Initially puckering sour, but midtaste dulls out and finishes very mellow without sweetness/sour. Aftertaste is fairly bland. Complex like advertised. Like drinking two different beers. Enjoy the first part better. Glad I got to try this one. However, I received from a friend and I’m sure its a fair amount of $$$.

Andy_ (669) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2014
250 ml bottle @ some Brasserie in Liège.
Cognac brown clear beer with small quickly vanishing head. Aroma is malty and corny sweet with grapefruits, cherry and red currant. Slightly sour. Flavor adds some crisp apple juiciness. Some cardboardyness. Thin palate with strong carbonation. Mild bitterness on the finish with sour and acidic aftertaste of red currant juice. Crisp, mild, easy to drink. A bit bulky and too much like juice.

Actually poured an Anno 1821 on 11/20/2013. first time trying a dour style beer..I don’t like it. It’s like a hard cider but obviously with a sour finish. I caught a hint of some oaky aftertaste but not much.

Vighals (1123) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2014
Rødbrun klar med lavt beige skum. Røde bær, sur lukt mot eddik. Syrlig, sur smak med noe bærsødme. Liker dem hakket surere. Lite kullsyre

orange_3084 (92) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2014
Murky brown colour with filmy head. Sour upfront aroma that is reminiscent of olive bread. Thin body. Taste is sour with some apple-grape like tartness that lingers in your mouth to finish.

Trappist1 (477) - Diest, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Koper bruine kleur, bruine kraag. Kersen, rood fruit. Smaak kersen, beetje hout. Licht zurig, heel verfrissend. Lekker.

Een bier met een heel uitgesproken smaak, spijtig genoeg is het absoluut mijn ding niet

Sperandio (9) - - AUG 10, 2014 does not count
Cerveja frutada, de cor escura caramelada. Predominante o gosto de uva. Ótima para degustar em pequenas quantidades (enjoativa em grandes doses)

At the source. Coke colored, almost no head. Sour, woody, fruity, goes down fast but on the watery side.
