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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
the aroma is wonderful and reminds me of fresh fruits with a crisp bite. The appearance is dark and somewhat red. The taste is good with a sour initial flavor followed by the flavor of a belgian ale that fades away quickly to that of funky fruit. Decent beer overall, but based on the aging this beer has gone through I expected more. Not even close to the top of my list for a sour/wild ale

On tap at Belgie in Utrecht. A bit too sweet for my taste, almost comparable to some Kriek beers. Nice head and beautiful glass.

On tap. Brown crimson color with a sweet almost cherry aroma. Flavor is bitter and sweet a the same time. It works though. The cherry aspect is awesome. There is also hints of oak and dried fruit. It is difficult to compare this to any other beer. Sour ales are in a class all their own. You either praise it or abhor it. I love this beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fizzy pour w. pervasive fruit vinegar aroma - certainly the balsamic vinegar comments preceding my review are right on. Beautiful mahogany color, with small, lasting head. Finely beaded, delicate carbonation. Sweet-tart flavor, steeped in wood and cherries - also a hint of chocolate. Nice astringent finish. Extremely refreshing, if a little sweet.

Bottle. Mahogany color, bubbly head, liquory aroma with some grape. Tangy yet creamy taste with tangerine, sour blast with a sweet finish, thin mouthfeel. My first sour ale, so disregard this :)

330ml bottle from Cotteridge Wines, B30. A pleasant drink, a cross between a beer and a wine. Deep red/brown colour. Manages to be sweet and astringent together. Wine-like tang and oak detectable. One for the connoisseur.
