Pours dark and cloudy but looking through into a light a lovely deep ruby red beer appears. Aroma is tart and fruity. Taste is amazing. Fruity, cherry and sour apple with a tart clean finish. Very refreshing and drinkable. Really like this beer. Surprised. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep dark red clear color with foamy soda like head. Smells like balasamic vinegar. A vinegar bite casing surrounding a grainy center. leaves a light vinegar tart behind.

seynie (153) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2014 Dark brown, almost no head. Red fruits, malt, some sour but not as much as Rodenbach. There is more of a creamy sweetness to this beer. Finish has the fruity sweetness, and a mildly sour dryness.

Really drinkable. Some think it is overpowering but it is well balanced. A decent beer for the masses and great introduction to a Flemish Sour.
