Great beer. Sour and balanced with a nice aftertaste of funk. I would have liked a little more funky Brett character on the palate. Great representation of the style.

Sweet and fresh beer with a fruity character, also Iíd swear they added a bit of Fristi to the flavours.

Bottle 33cl. Medium to small light brown head. Leaving a thin layer. Quite heavy body. Looks like candy. Aroma is oak, wine, permanent marker, rottening fruit and some gently hidden malt. Taste is fruit, wine, port and sugar. A desert storm.

Very distinctive beer. Takes quite a few tries before you start to appreciate it, but when you do start to appreciate the rich, sweet (even sour) taste itís an absolute favorite. One of Belgiums best.

Iíve been saving this one until the day I like sour reds, but now itís past itís BB date, so I guess Iíll have a go today, even though Iím still not a big fan of sours. It looks perfect, with a clear, deep red colour with a long-lived, eggnog head that laces the glass excellently. The aroma is strong, sweet and sour. Itís complex and actually very pleasant, I get sour notes of fermented fruits, dark caramel, acetic notes, rye bread and port wine. The flavours are equally complex: fermented fruits, cherries, red wine, faint vanilla and a touch of caramel. Itís quite sweet, and that makes the light acidity and sourness even more pleasant. The long-lasting finish is both sweet, sour, acidic and acetic, all in pleasant amounts. The body is almost full, the texture is oily and the carbonation is moderate. A lovely beer! Yay, Iím getting there!

Keg @The Vintage, Leith. Pours brown with a very thin slightly off white head. Nose is sour, vinegar, red wine vinegar, some more sour notes, woody oak casks really comes through on the nose as well. Sharp on the palate, sharp/tart cherries. Its both sweet and sour and like to give this to a Chinese restaurant also give them some chicken/duck and see what they can do with it. Fantastic raspberry aftertaste. This is like a ribena should taste when you are hungover.
