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.

branspra (293) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with medium-sized off-white head. Excellent lacing. Aromas of strong fruit, mainly pears and grapes. Another aroma exists and I cannot tell you what it is, but it smells sweet and I like it. Tastes like port or wine, with a very sweet taste and little carbonation. Texture is oily and sticky. Very strange beer, but I have to say that I somewhat enjoy it.

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.

Robe brune bien foncée aux délicats reflets rubis. Mousse blanc cassé se dissipant rapidement, fin col au final. Nez : notes vineuses, liège, bois, tonneau, acidité, huiles essentielles. Bouche : petite douceur, belle acidité, notes de fruits rouges, des bois, cerise, citron.Mais aussi liège, tonneau, notes boisées subtiles. Un style que je ne connaissais pas.Et ma foi, plutôt étonnant et agréable.

Very dark ruby colour, clear. Great head. Fantastic aroma: wine, berries, vinegar, apples, coffee (? maybe it’s some woody notes?). In taste it’s medium sourness, rather sweet. Very fruity. Some vanilla.

vincentvega72 (292) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2015 Donkerrood met kleine schuimkraag. Zeer uitgesproken zurig aroma met geuren van eik, kersen, wijn en donker fruit. Heerlijk mondgevoel waarbij de rijping op eiken vaten heel goed naar voren komt. Lekkere afdronk. Topbiertje.

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2006
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.

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
