4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2007 Bottle. Red amber with a thick, creamy, beige head with long retention. Aroma very cider-like (red apples) with hints of wood. Smooth mouthfeel with a refreshing carbonation. Flavour adds a nice sweetness that is well integrated with the apple sourness. Very nice!

Bottle. Dark red colour with a fast receding off-white head. Smells a bit funny at first. Vinous aroma with cherries, acidic with lambic tones. Flavour is very sweet in the beginning followed by a slightly sour cherry taste ending with a synthetic finish. Soft mouthfeel.

Botlle who it stand on the label back,best before 12-11-2005.
So this tasting of the beer was so exiting, because I never taste a belgium beer who has "ended" before I tasted it.
Colour was deep red clear,no head at all. Aroma was Vine, and has kin of berry nose .Yeasty,citric,and in the end a bit of acid tones too.
Flavor was vine,fruity,,some malt, and a smouth nice bitternes. Reminds me
about a spanich Vine with a bit of oag age feeling. This was exiting! Medium body, medium finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at The White Horse on Parsons Green (London), a clear ruby red with a bubbly off-white head. A rich syrupy malt aroma with a touch of raspberry (and maybe plum). Strong raspberry flavours again, but a great spritzy palate, not syrupy at all.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a ruby red, lacks some depth but still nice. The head was quick to form, offwhite, slightly frothy, and left a nice lace. The aroma was sweet/tart cherry, oak, sharp spice. The flavor was similar with the cherry and oak, had some warm spice to it and some earthy notes. Nice flavor. The palate was nice too. It was slightly harsh, but in a pleasing way. It was crisp and full with a warm sharp bite to it. The finish had the sharp crispness to it as well. The alcohol didn’t really show itself other than the warmth. Overall a tastey brew that I’d have again if given the chance.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The color was a dark ruby red. The head was fizzy and white. The aroma was very sour, fruity, with an almost vinegar smell to it. The flavor was cherry, sour, and maybe some spice. The palate was smooth and the finish was very sour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2007 This beer poured a dark amber, perhaps coppery color. The nose offered distinct hints of ketchup. The creamy white head (with just a hint of red) dissipated quickly. The flavor was initially a pleasant sour raspberry with hints of lemon. The tail lingered for a minute or two, but that ketchup taste lingered. I think I might pick up a bottle of this for my next bratwurst cookout.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2008 Pours a dark copper color with a huge creamy off-white head. The aroma has hints of sweet and sour, with hints of barbecue or something as well. A nice earthy barnyard is present as well Great tart acidity balanced by a good dark fruit sweetness. Nice sour edge onto the finish. This beer is very well balanced, but a little bit watered down.
