Bière très acide en bouche elle s’avère assez fruitée et vineuse peu intéressante

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Faut aimer les fruits rouges quoi parce que c’est le seul arôme à distinguer. Corpulence moyenne. Bof.

Pours a dark brown with thin light brown head. Has the strongest dark fruit aroma I’ve even encountered. Almost like a red wine. Has a strong sour cherry flavor, other dark fruits, and some malt aftertaste. Has lots of carbonation and finishes really dry.

Brown, hazy, tan head. Aroma of bready malt, chocolate, plums, sweaty funk. Flavor is malty with toast, a nice moderate tartness, berries, a little leather, nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at The Ginger Man, NYC. Clearly a sophisticated and highly rated Belgian sour ale. However, very rich in flavor and a bit sweet for the style.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2014 Une de mes bières préférées. D’une buvabilité absolument hallucinante. Un peu surette mais sans que ce soit exagéré. Un goût de fruits rouges et noirs mais présenté d’une manière légère et balancée. Légèrement trop sucrée cependant...

Deep red brown with creamy beige head. Blueberries, red fruits, candy, yoghurt, light fresh dough. Quite sweet with sharp sour kick. Wood and some scotch whisky. Medium bodied, sharp and fresh. Great!

Dark ruby pour with 1 finger off-white head. Dark fruit, belgian yeast, some oak on nose. Qualities combine to create a bouquet reminiscent of a red wine. Very light beer despite decent carbonation. Very sweet at first, before sour cherry sweets overwhelm. Not grindingly sour as some can be. It achieves a leaning balance. Dark fruits. Fairly dry on finish.
