Awful. Overwhelming smell of malt vinegar , overwhelming taste of malt vinegar. £5 for the bottle and it was undrinkable . Never again.

One of my favourite (and first) sours. Medium acidity with a good dose of sweetness. Cherries, vinegar chips, brown sugar, syrup with citrus, orange red apples and dried fruits.

Foi a primeira sour ale que eu experimentei. É bastante diferente de tudo que eu já havia tomado. O sabor lembra mais um frisante do que uma ale convencional.

On tap. Redish Brown color. Sour cherries, raisins and yeasty aromas. Very tart cherry flavor with dark dried fruit notes. Some medicinal flavors. Made my taste buds pop. You could taste how well crafted this beer was. My first adventure into sours and definately not my last. This was a beautiful beer.

She pours a gentle deep dark amber/red close to a brown color and leaves the same colored body with a one finger white foamy head. There is a light lacing that clings slightly here and there but slides into the body for the most part.
The smell has an extremely well balance between sweet sugary cherries and light apples to light sour notes. The tartness is there as well. There is a light vinegar aspect that adds into the aroma but doesn’t appear to be off at all as it just seems to assist in the balancing of it all.
The taste is very balanced once again between the sweetness to the sourness to the tartness blending beautifully all the way through. Light sticky sweet cherry-like aftertaste with a somewhat sweet dry finish.
On the palate, she sits about a light to medium on the body for me with a decent effort to want to be sessionable. I think this one could be fairly sessionable, though I will say that the carbonation is extremely smooth - there isn’t any harshness to take my tongue for granted. Remember, she’s a lady not a beast.
Overall, I would love to have for a date again and would definitely would like to have again with its respected food. She’s just an all around incredibly awesome Flanders Red Ale.

Absolutely great beer. Sour ales are a love or hate thing, and this one made me love them. Aroma is strong sour, vinegar with some fruits underneath it, mostly apples. Pours clear red with medium head. Very refreshing, very drinkable. Taste is fruity and sour, with some bitterness in the aftertaste, quite dry.

Really complicated to describe this (unique) beer.
With a "red" color. A little bit bitter and fruity.
