750 ml Bottle - Ruby red color with a thin white head. Sweet aroma of cherries. Tastes fruity and sour with a light carbonation. I like the beer, but am not crazy about the style.

RoyceH (1197) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 16, 2007
Bottle, pours a deep brown with a thin white head. Nose is porty, very ruby late bottled port, some vinegar. Mouth is fruity, sour, ripe, everything it should be Alcohol hidden well, apart from the nose reminds me of something more alcoholic, even though the smell isn’t there! Very nice, needs a more robust finish, slightly flimsy and sweet, but very good, and now what I was expecting.

Pour is reddish brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is rich with a sourness, vinegar, some cherry, and a barnyard qualities. Flavor has a tartness, along with some cherry, balsamic vinegar, a slight acidicness, and funkiness.

Dark brown reddish pour into a sambuca snifter with a half inch head. The aroma is sour, apple cider, and brown sugar. The taste is fruity and sour. The cherry, citrus, raspberry and brown sugar flavors melt perfectly with the 6.2% alcohol. This is the best flemish sour ale that I have had thus far. Kick ass brew.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 10, 2007
Bouteille. Couleur, euh, bourgogne, clair. Mince mousse et léger lacet, trace le verre. Arôme vinaigré et sucré. Goût sucré-sûr, balsamique, finale sucré, se transformant en douce acidité. Effervescence modérée. Équilibré et complexe. Se boit très bien.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Deep ruby red and clear body. Frothy light tan head. Sweet pastry-like sour cherry and grass aroma. Taste is a nice clean and crsip metallic sour cherry and dry oak. Very clean and drinkable sour beer. I like this. It has a nice sweetness to balance a great flavorful sourness.
