4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich brown, nice beige head with good lacing. Aroma is woody and young wine. Tastes fruity and then mellows to a tangy light hoppy aftertaste. Lightly carbonated. A treat

75 cl bottle. Pours beautifully red brown with an off-white creamy head that lasts very long and laces very good. Smells very sweet with hints of sour, caramel, fruit,… The taste is a great balance between sweet and sour. Sometimes the sweetness dominates, sometimes the sour accent dominators. Great beer.

Aroma of vinegar and white wine. Rich mahogany appearance with lasting thin yellow/carmel head. Sour taste with granny smith apple and malt. Sweet aftertaste. A unique beer unlike any other. Well worth it, one of my favorites.

Smells sour and a little putrid. Tastes like sour apples in a brown ale. I do not like.

Tastes very sour and fruity, aroma’s of cherries and apples. I think my girlfriend would like it more than I do.

Malty, yeasty aroma. Clear brown, amber colour. Very fruity and sparkly. Getting some cranberrry taste, and some other red berries. Maybe some boysenberry as well. Very mild sour taste and medium bodied.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A typical belgium dark beer, not bad but at the same time not special. Not very complex with a bit artificial flavour.

Bottle. Clear, deep reddish brown pour with a quickly disappearing brown head. Aroma is sharp and lightly sour with pleasant fruity and malty tones. Taste is quite sweet and quite sour, but in a well-balanced and easily drinkable way. Lots of fruit in the flavour, with notes of grape, apple, plum, and some yeast. Nice subtle carbonation. A thing of beauty, in my opinion.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2004 Brown/red in color with a sour, vinegary aroma. Fruity and sour. Very unusual, but not unpleasant. Short, flat, quick-to-dissipate brownish head. The first sip was the toughest, as my tongue and brain take in the shock of such a strange flavored beer. After several more sips, the taste became more understandable, and more flavors became apparent....cherries, tiny bits of chocolate malt. Enjoyable, if unusual. To quote MIchael Jackson "Some drinkers could never learn to enjoy....sour specialties....any more than they could acquire a taste for a smelly cheese...in [that] case, the loss would be theirs."

Like sour candy and gumballs, this beer starts out with a twang and is all sugar at the finish. The color is a very nice deep red, the aroma funky, the bottle, the beer, come off like the old world works of art they are.
