drank at La Morte Subite on tap.... Good CO2 bite with a nice lactic/fruit aroma Dark ruby red color, subdued sourness, I guess I prefer the Grand Cru. The CO2 seems to increase the tartness sweet start with drying finish and seems to bring the aspect of dark cherries and vanilla to the front. Slight Ethylacetate that is not overbearing like " La Folie" in my opionion. Would go great with some flemish beef stew.

alteregoo (238) - POLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Piana drobna, ale szybko znika niemal do zera sycząc przy tym jak na coli, barwa ciemno czerwona, bordowa, lekko opalizująca. W aromacie drogie czerwone wytrawne wino - kwaskowy zapach czerwonych owocw typu wiśnia, czerwona porzeczka, ciemne winogrono, delikatne nuty dębowej beczki, starego drewna. W smaku jest lekka kwaśność, ale szybko łamie ją delikatna owocowa słodycz, ktra przechodzi szybko w pestkową goryczkę. Wszystko płynnie, przyjemnie i orzeźwiająco. Nagazowanie średnie, bardzo drobne, piwo jest dość bogate i przyjemne w odczuciu, ale raczej sesyjne, lekkie w piciu. Alkohol delikatnie rozgrzewa w gardle, co ponownie przypomina nam o podobieństwie do płwytrawnego czerwonego wina.

huineman (300) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2015
Pours maroon with scarce tawny head. Aroma is vinous: fermented raspberry and cherry, a tinge of vinegar, a hint of vanilla and nutmeg, a bit of coffee drop. Taste is lively sour and a little sweet. Soft and light, not very long-lasting.

BarrelAndBeer (11) - Wien, - MAY 3, 2015
Very classic sweet and sour brown beer. Right choice for beginners. Just a hint of aged woody oakiness and red wine vinous. Could drink everyday. Fresh and easy. Well balanced, not as sour as other beers of this style. Enjoyed every sip.

Not a fan at all. This was my first sour but I am probably the best sour critic.
