3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2003 Re rate: The beer is better tonight. It has a nice winey, oaky, blackcurrantish aroma. A bit tart but still sweet. The metallic taste is gone. Hurray!
Reddish brown. Big cherry nose, a bit spicy. Cherry, a bit sour and then a metallic taste. this could be a good beer if it wasn't for its finish. I'll have to try it later on to see if this one was from a bad batch.

Bottle. Dark brown/red color. Vinegar aroma. Sweet taste. Cherries. A bit too sweet for my taste but not bad. The head disappeared fast.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Very happy to try this one out (finally)! The robe is clear pouring a warm brown shade with very deep ruby highlights topped with a creamy beige head. The nose is smoky and spicy and also has a very nice sweetness with grapes and even a little floral side. To be honest, I’m not a great fan of very sweet beers (usually) with a certain smokiness, but this one has just the right amount of sweetness from the fruits like cherries and grapes and enough hops to balance it out and be very pleasant on the tongue. Excellent served between 8 and 12 degrees.

Lot of balsamic character in this one. Some kind of candied fruit to add sweetness. Not bad at all.

750 ml. thanks semich. pours intense, dark brown, but with a ruby-garnet glimmer. adequate lacing. typical sour ale nose. tart fruit, smooth yet silky. a bit of underlying raspberry fruit and currants on the tail end. taste? fruit follows onto the flavor and into the finish to coat the palate, both on the sides and the front end. sweet, ripe fruits, a healthy dose of carbonation (reminiscent of champagne), and a lighter dose of yeast. on the palate, it’s velvety, yet extremely smooth. excellent for the style. it’s one to savor.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2015 Pours ruby colour with almost no head. Aroma of red wine vinegar, wild notes and cherry. Taste is pleasantly sour, wild, fruity with some delicate caramel notes in the background. Solid carbonation puts the beer next to champagne or a bottle of good red wine. Simply amazing.

(Bottle, ABS drinks) Dark brown colour, little slowly diminishing beige head, no lacing. Lots of acid bubbles. Aroma of orange peels, hops, spices, light alcohol, sweet fruits, light raisin, cherries, soap. Sour, spicy and sweet taste. Flavour of fruits (cherry) and wood. Vivid mouthfeel, almost like cola blended with alcohol. Some sweet and not too harsh maltiness in the finish.
