Sour yeasty aroma with a wood barrel character. Tart and similar to wine except for the carbonation. A pleasant sweetness rolls around the finish. A complex and exciting beer well worth trying. Thanks @kapusil

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle from Beer Store Vienna.
Deep copper, clear body, with a medium, fluffy, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of oak, vinegar, leather, overripe fruits, some some nail polish, some skunk.
Taste follows this, with more sweet fruits and vanilla, but also with some nail polish and skunk notes.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes sweet-sour, medium dry, wooden, fruity, with some vegetables again.
Too bad, my bottle seems to be spoilt, first time I experienced this with a sour beer. Doesn’t drink that bad, with nice sweet and sour notes, but the skunk and nail polish ruins it of course. Will rerate this.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,25 l bottle, bought at Grebhan´s, Bremen. A darkest but bright red brown in the glass. Nearly no head. Malty fruity with a lot of bisquit and cherry liqueur on the nose. Taste starts with sweet cherry, then followed by vanilla and pale malty influences, also sourness but always with a present sweet stage. Some alcoholic bisquit taste. Nice one.

Very dark ruby colour, clear. Great head. Fantastic aroma: wine, berries, vinegar, apples, coffee (? maybe it’s some woody notes?). In taste it’s medium sourness, rather sweet. Very fruity. Some vanilla.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Whole Foods Market, Giffnock, Scotland:
Quite a sour and tart beer but definitely not as strong in those departments as I’d been expecting when compared to some other Belgian sours that I’ve tried over the years. The nose in particular is quite a complex one with some good sweetness off the back of the fruits and a nice balance as well; a very nice beer and one well worth trying if you get the chance.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From 25 cL bottle in Belgian ale glass. Pours deep crimson with acetic acid nose that mellows as it warms releasing some sweet malty scents. Cherry tartness hits the palate and malt sweetness breaks through as the tartness fades. My first red sour: intriguing complexity that changes with temperature.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 75 cl. Nice Flemmish aroma and apperance but is overwelming sweet and lack body and bitterness to make it balanced. Eg not better than Rodenbach and is more expensive. Meh
