4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reviewed 1/15/2013. 11.2 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass.
A: Pours a dark red color with nice clarity. Typical of a sour, there isnít much head, a one finger eggshell color that fades quickly.
S: I love how the cherries intermingle with the oak qualities the aroma provides. Sourness is subtle, enough to create a delicate interplay between the other aromatic notes. Not explosive, just wonderful to inhale.
T: A bit of a letdown from the nose, which isnít really saying much. Immediately, cherry flavors combine with a balanced lactic tartness. I love how cherry forward this comes across without going overly sweet. The finish is mostly grainy malts and some diacetyl; however, after a few sips some of the cherry qualities bleed past the midtaste to drown out the buttery notes - exactly what I want in a Flemish red. Keep in mind this is about 3/10 sour, so those looking for an enamel beatdown wonít find it here.
M: Light and crisp. A very light tannic quality appears in the aftertaste, but this isnít particularly dry. Itís well carbonated and refreshing, and goes down quickly.
O: One thing that deserves to be mentioned is how inexpensive this bottle was - about $1.75 for a single 11.2 oz bottle. Itís not the greatest sour ever, but as a refreshing thirst quencher, Iíd take this over many standard fruit beers any day. Itís cheap (for a sour), itís well made, and itís a panty dropper. Enough said!

Pours a clear reddish brown with a thin white ring. Tart, sour fruity aroma. Thin body with light carbonation and some lacing. Lightly tart fruity taste. Flavors don;t linger very long. OK, but not as goo as the Grand Cru.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Złożony aromat jabłek, wiśni i agrestu (?). W smaku cierpkie, silnie wytrawne, z umiarkowaną kwaśnością i sporą ilością cydrowo-drewnianych akcentůw. Jabła nadal dość silnie wyczuwalne, wiśnia już mniej. Finisz cierpki, delikatnie drewniany. Niezłe.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(330ml bottle, Beijing) AROMA: Sweet, fermented fruit, dried fruit, cherry, very ripe apples, jam, APPEARANCE: cloudy, medium brown/red, beige head, clingy/oily. TASTE: ciderish, sweet, apple, cherry, grape, tobacco, fortified wine without being alcoholy, tart finish. PALATE: Sparkly, fizzy, afterwards quite smooth/oily/slick, some bitterness but not too much. OVERALL: Different, interesting, unique. Doesnít come off a beer, seems more like a cider (as if made almost wholly from fruit, not from malt). A good beer to try and discuss. I like it, it is fun/fresh ... however I can imagine some people saying it is too sweet or girly.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Small 0,25 bottle. Pours dark copper. Aroma is wine-like with cherry and cranberry. I have to say that these sour fruit beers and Lambics are not my cup of tea. So as the girl always says; Itís me and not the beer that has the faults. The taste is like the vinegar that have to drink when I have a soar throat. Itís sour and doesnít feel like a beer to me. Maybe Iím just old fashioned. Couldín finish this one though.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours a beautiful brown, with red saturation in the corner. Nice sweet/tart smell. A nice amazing, well-done complex sour/brown.

Tap @ Hopaholic, Budapest. Aroma is sour and has hints of malts and yeast. The taste is refreshingly sour with carbonation lively in the mouth. The aftertaste is dry. Good stuff!
