Red-brownish color. Great ballanced between sourness and sweetness - hints of berries - maybe cherries. Easy drinkable beer, too sweet/sour for me.

De couleur orangée tirant sur le rouge sombre, tres grosse carbo et collet persistant de grosses bulles. Aromes acide de vinaigres et de fruits rouges comme la cerise. Je m’attendais a plus d’acidité en attaque et bien non elle arrive au final... Note boisées dues au viellissement en fut. Mais cela n’est pas dans la demesure, et meme si ce style de biere est plus exigeant et ne peu pas plaire a tout le monde (moi compris) je reste agreablement surpris.

Dark brown beer with a small head which quickly disappears. Taste is sour and fruity, good balance. Similar taste as a rodenbach. I am a lover of what sour beers, definitely recommended.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 What a beer! One of my favourites up to now. Winey, vinegar, some red fruits. Tastes really sour which I like. Nice brown-red colour. Try if you can!

Drink cold (8°C) Eye: reddish-brown or ruby colour with quickly dissipating head. Nose: acidy, floral and berries such as strawberries. cherries as well. Mouth: a mixture of strawberry vinegar, redcurrant and cherries Palate: sour and complex Overall: somehow refreshing and completely different from conventional beers, but just not my taste. good beer supposedly if you like this kind of beer.

Bottle at bar. Dark red/brown with medium bubbles. Smells fresh and biting, raspberries and the sour notes from gooseberry. Sour taste starting with a sweet lick. Enjoyable.

Niet echt mijn favoriet, een smaak dat mij niet erg bevalt, alhoewel dat er wel veel liefhebbers zullen zijn voor dit bier

Bottle, bought at a store in Brussels. Beautiful brown-red appearance. Solid, creamy head. Winey, sour nose. Sweet, flavorful taste. A lively, lovely beer, very well balanced.

Piwo butelkowe. Mocny kwaśno-octowy aromat, nuty kwiatowe. Kolor klarowny ciemny bursztyn z obfitą pianą o dużych oczkach. W smaku uderzająco kwaśne, czuć też dużą nieprzyjemną nutę octu, wysycenie wysokie. Bardzo wytrawne piwo nie moge powiedziec ze mi smakowalo ale tez nie moge stwierdzic ze bylo zle, ot zupełnie nie mój styl dlatego ocene daje średnią.

It pours an amber with a definitive red tinge. It has a powerful sour smell the is reminiscent of a red wine. It has a lively, carbonated taste with a sour taste laden with fruit flavors.
