2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2009 Pours a chocolate amber with a small tan head. Aroma strong of tart fruits, mostly cherries. Taste is as tart as the aroma with hints of caramel and that oak zing. Felt like I was drinking a fruit cider, which was a bit disappointing, because I wanted a sour ale. A nice go-to ale when that is what I am looking for though. I will have to try this again to make sure this is what it is supposed to taste like.

0.25 l in Delirium Tremens @ Brussels. Looks like rose wine. Taste is sour but not too much. There is also somethin else. Not quite like red wine, but something similar.

From a can. Fine head, very fruity and thin, quite refreshing once you get used to it.

Live rating: 25 cl bottle served cool in a Hoegaarden Grand Cru tulip. Aroma is leather, vinegar and old trainer insole. Deep brown body, slightly hazy, with a creamy beige head. Sour apple flavour, some burnt cinder toffee, piquant fruitiness, and Lancashire cheese... mmm, mmm, mmm... even a tiny sip delivers a marvellous taste experience. Bitter sweet, medium bodied, astringent... tasty doesn’t do it justice.

Pour is brownish with a thin off-white head. Nose is woody with some sourness. Taste is red grapes, oak barrel and some sourness. Some vanilla notes too. Pretty light body and not overwhelmingly sour. Low carbonation. Well done, but not outstanding.

Hazy brown beer, small tan head. Nose is tart with acidic notes, flavor is tart and somewhat vinous with plums, spice and berry hints. Pretty drinkable, not as tart and acidic I thought it would be.

I don’t like it as much as it’s reputation made me believe. It is too sweet for me.

Une bière facile à boire délicieuse,je pourrait en boire des tonnes.Son mixte de jeunes et de vieux brassin sont parfait.Jaimerais bien que des brasseries Québécoise puisse recréer quelque chose de similaire.
