Unique and legendary beer, with aroma of cherries, vanilla, grapes and almonds. Dark red/ruby, small head. Sweet and sour at the same time, a bit like sweet red wine. This beer is a must for every beer geek!

Procent (244) - POLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Aromat winny, octowy, syrop z wiśni, lekko alkoholowy. Kolor burgundowy, piana niewielka, skromny lacing. W smaku sok z wiśni połączony z octem, wyraźnie kwaśne, ale wiśnie słodkie, lekko alkoholowe, wysokonasycone, lekko kłuje w przełyk. Bardzo dobrze zbalansowane, bogaty bukiet smakůw, bardzo dobre. Warka do 12.06.2016

Bottle. Aroma is of apple cider, pear, light lemon, and unripe blackberries. Sweet taste up front with a solid sour backbone. Flovor is a nice blackberry and sour apple finish. Clean and short finish.

Tap. Iím not usually a fan of sour beers, and while this one smells a little too sour, itís pretty tasty. Hints of apple and cherry. A little too much apple cider vinegar taste. Would drink again.

(Tap) I like this. Itís not too sour and has a really nice malt flavor. Maybe itís got a little too much "vinegar" flavor in it.

yumyum (214) - barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
not generally my favourite style. Nice sour winey nose. Taste is full, not overly sour but a slight underlying sour taste. Good mouth feel, smooth and rich, Ok would not turn one down but wouldnít seek it out either.
