Saw a good deal on a 6-pack of these for my wife, a big sour fan. Sneaking a bottle, poured into a tulip glass a reddish-dark brown color with small off-white head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, light fruit and some oaky notes. Taste is not as sour as aroma leads on, more fruity (mainly cherries, some raspberries) with a balance that’s not overly sweet. Medium body and carbonation, tart, yet a surprisingly light flavor. I think I have a new go-to easy drinking sour here.

It poured a dark ruby/brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was sour with cherries. The taste was similar with some port wine notes, vinegar, fruits and some funk. Decent.

From tap in a harour café in Zeebrugge. Reddish brown. Beige, dense head. Sour aroma of red berries. Similar taste. Red currant juice. Refreshing.

Rosslew (180) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2014
Got sour smell. Has a tinge of vinegar with the yeast in taste. Very little fruit. Found mouthfeel a bit watery. Lacked a bit of flavour for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille. Bootlegger . Robe brune légère , reflets rubis, mousse beige clair peu persistante. Nez de caramel, légèrement boisé. Attaque douce et sucré. Bouche sur le fruit , douce acidité vineuse. On retrouve sur la finale des petites notes de chêne . Une petite douceur belge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silvan7 (633) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle @ home. Rosso rubino intenso, quasi violacea con schiuma beige fine non molto persistente. Aroma intenso, pungente, acetico e vinoso, di frutta a bacca rossa. Note di zucchero di canna e legno. Gusto dolce abboccato, acido, poco amaro. Non molto corposa, poco carbonata piuttosto calda. Meno equilibrata della Grand Cru. Comunque armonica ed interessante.

Paincane (127) - Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Opaque mahogany hued body with a thin tan head that is short-lived. Sweet malt and sour yeasty nose and flavors. Well-blended. A good Flemish Red-Brown ale.

Vignale (1975) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2014
Flaska från Beernavigator. Rödbrun klar vätska, lågt skum. Söt och lätt syrlig doft med honung, rost, läder, torkad frukt och aningen söt vinäger. Frisk, sötsyrlig, oxiderad, torkad frukt, läder, honung, snälla tanniner, och en lätt stenfruktskärnbeska. Lättdrucken, trevlig och hyfsat komplex.

Pours a short but long lasting head. Is sour, tasting a bit of red wine. A bit tamer than say.....Grand Cru.

Nice fresh beer with nice color. Bit flat in flavor. Will not be my favorite
