dark brown/ruby nice head. sweet fruit with a hint of sour akin to a red wine maybe. rich malt with a nice rounded mouthfeel. finish brings out the sourness just enough to let you know its there. even shows signs of a light cherry soda on occassion. like a cheerwine minus the sweetness for you southerners. lovely and easy drinking. one of my favorites.

This beer is fairly odd. I was expecting something more sour than this, but it is still good. In appearance it is like looking through a burgundy prism. The aroma is higly sour and smells somewhat of red wine and cranberries. The flavor is more subdued. It is tart, crisp, combined with maltiness and a little bit of raisin flavor. It reminds me of a Spanish manzanilla sherry I once drank in terms of fruitiness. Specifically there are hints of raisin, raspberry, some green apple. At first I was disappointed because I was expecting something very sour, but the more I sip it, the more I appreciate it’s mellow blend of sourness, maltiness, and earthy fruit. Seek this out and buy a bottle!

A strange beer with an acidic touch - almost like vinegar. On the other hand it’s rather sweet as well, and goes along fine with some kind of desert - or simply AS a desert. I didn’t like it the first time around, but now I admit it’s quite nice.

Clear chestnut amber, great white foam.
Aroma sour & sweet.
Fantastic heavy sweet and sour flavor, too much for a long drink. Dessert wine style.
Thick body, prickly / sour.
Lovely beer. No reason to buy a large bottle.

Pours a clear dark amber with a nice tan head. Aroma is of fruits, cranberry, apple and oak. Lots of citrus and fruits in the flavor, some cranberry and sweet malts.

On sent le baril de chêne et l'acidité perçante. J'adore cette bière. Bien joue qu'on en trouve facilement a la SAQ!

On draft at Twains in Decatur. Reddish brown in color, nice frothy tannish head. Aroma pleasantly of sour dark cherries, hints of vinegar and slight wood. Flavor moderately sour, not overly assertive--underlying dark fruit and sugar sweetness that you don’t always find in a sour. Mild tartness, vinegar. Finishes slightly sweet, not really with the dryness I would prefer. Still, nice sour--probably the most accessible I’ve had.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2007 Pours dark brown with red accents. One finger of thick tan head. Aroma is intense sour with Worcestershire. Very satisfying full mouthfeel . Very sour...cherries...hint of soy. Sour/bitterness lingers for a bit, then finishes clean. Incredible! The first time I had this I couldn’t stand it. Now I can’t get enough! Thanks to Boboski for turning me on to this one.
