bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2002
Mahogny body with a tan head. Sweet nose with a hint of maltiness. Very sour then tart flavor. No hops in the taste or aroma. I would drink again without a twist of the arm.

nudiebear (293) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
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.

Poured from a 750ml bottle a deep mahogany with a very nice tan head and left great lacing. Aroma reminded me of black cherries, it had a vinous aroma, and a bit of apple cider vinager mixed in. Initial mouth feel is full of carbonation almost like drinking a brut champange. Flavor was like a cherry sweettart. It started out tart then in the finish you get the sweetness. I will drink more of this one.

Ester aromas of dried fruit, cherries, plums. A bit of vinegar, not as much as others have reported. Clear amber to brown color with beige head. Unbalanced flavor in which sweetness dominates and cloys. There are nice dried fruit flavors but many other flavors are probably obscured. Carbonation is correct but palate impression is thick. Sweet finish. The mix is not right for my taste.Maybe the sweetness is there to cover off flavors.

cokolwiek11 (292) - POLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Clear dark reddish brown, low creamy head that sticks to the glass and stays on the beer. Thats how it should look like. Aroma: Fruits, wine, dry wine, little vinegar, slightly peach, red grapes. Old, dry acohol. Beautiful. Taste: medium sour, light sweetness. Caramel, fruits, dry wine, some vinegar. Yummy. Palate: medium body, dry on palate (despite high residual sweetness), long vinous finish, low saturation. Overall: I love this style, one of the best beers in this style, aboslutely briliant.

gorkogrlo (288) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark red, cherry like color with brownish long-lasting head. Aroma of chocolate and dark fruits with brett character after 1 or so chocolate smell disappeared. Dominant taste is reminding me of cherries with porto and vinegar. Also some spicy and oak character is present. Maybe too sweet. No hop bitterness. Really spicy finish. Overall: nice one., but it would be better if it has more balance between sourness and sweetness. In my opinion, it is little bit too sweet. But still good beer.

Very bright plum and cherry, tart, medium palate, lots of lacing and slightly syrupy but not too thick. Pretty good. Menu deScription says 6% ABV, I find it hard to believe, feels more intense. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
