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.

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.

Hrc_Cro (101) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 8, 2014
0.33l bottle. Dark red/brown color with very little brown foam. Smell of vinegar. Aroma of spices, sour cherries and vinegar.. Taste is very sour and medium sweet. It leaves a feeling in my throat like after vomiting and that is obviously not good. Very interesting, but would not dare to call it very good. One might say it tastes more like wine than beer, or like wine mixed with beer.

Bork (334) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Excellent red sour with lots of fruitiness on the tongue and spices on the nose. Rounds off pleasantly on the finish and leaves you thirsty for another sip,
