Nice white wine smell to it. The aroma might be a little to much on the vinegarish side, but still smells good. Slight taste a bitter apple cider. While the sweet and sour taste of this beer starts to decipate you can feel the yeast coming out. Overal GOOD belgian beer.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2006 Bier rouge: Clear browny read with little white head. The smell is sour and fruity (cherries) and at the same to time you can smell vinegar & oak. The carbonation is lively bubbly. The taste is pretty much like your first senses tells you. Good on a warm day in the sun!

Very enjoyable beer. Pours a clear brown with no head. Aroma is sour malt and apples. The taste is very light and smooth. Sour up front that turns sweet, almost like a brewer’s take on champagne. It got better as it warmed. Will definitely seek this one out again.

Dark colored pour with a small head that bubbles away quickly. Smells sour and fruity. Taste is the same but it provides a nice oaky flavored backbone to it to nullify the sourness. An interesting brew to say the least. I liked it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours a dark ruby color. Aroma is sour, with hints of champagne. Slighty sour up front with a roasted flavor. Some sweetness. Very tart at points. Reminds me a little of champagne for some reason. Slightly fruity in flavor. Pretty full flavored.

Nice! Sour. Like eating salt and vinegar potato chips, minus the salt and potatoes. This would be a great summer brew. A good example of a sour beer that’s not overdone for the sake of a large ingredient list. I’d love to make something like this, but I don’t have the patience for the souring process or the fermentation time.

Bottle. Dried cherry / fruit wine aroma. Light reddish brown color with small head. A very nice sweet-tart dark cherry flavor - very much like a fruit wine. Great taste and easy to drink.

I did not really care for this beer, but had to rate it in a way that was fair. It has a lot of taste and aroma. Very strong on both categories, so rating it lower do to the fact that I would probably not drink it again would not be a good way to have consistent ratings. Anyways, smells and tastes almost exactly like malt vinegar. The first thing I thought when I had this beer at the local pub was that it would go great with fish and chips. Very acidic. Ok, so, well, I lied... I would drink it again. I know, it’s strange, I liked it, in a weird sort of way... Something about it, maybe the mystery of it has me wanting more.
