UPDATED: APR 26, 2009 This is a wonderful beer. A rare taste and a sourness that doesn’t offend. Quite delightful. I look forward to the next one. But how long will I have to wait?

Not a bad beer. A better version of Rodenbach. Fruity, sweety, some cherries and a sour aftertaste.

May 10, 2014. 750mL bottle from citybeer in SF. My favourite sour beer. Lovely dark brown with off-white head. Aromas of malt and balsamic vinegar and sour grapes. Lovely smooth mouthfeel, sweet malty flavour. Just as good as I remember!

Pours clear amber, virtually no head. Aroma is weak at best, with sweet but also of a wine that is turning to vinegar. Initial flavor is slightly winelike, and reminds me of ducksauce at a chinese restaurant. Finishes slightly bitter, somewhat sweet. Not really one that I would sit back and enjoy. My wife and mother(who tasted it with me) both really enjoyed this.

I feel like I should like this more, but I don’t... Aroma is fantastically tart with hints of cherry and apple. Color is brown tinged with red. Taste is sweet, too sweet for my taste. Hints of cherry and citrus. Palate is rich and creamy. Just too sweet...

Apariencia: color rojo muy oscuro, casi negro, pero no turbio y traslucido. Corona escasa color marfil y de burbuja grande. Nivel medio de carbónico. Aroma: Destaca el vinagre de módena, toques a madera y carácter ligeramente terroso. Sabor: ácido y dulce a la vez, ambos sabores se compensan, no es empalagosa ni seca. se nota bastante el sabor torrefacto, a pasas y caramelo, pero también notas ácidas como manzana verde. También se percibe la madera en el retrogusto, que es muy largo. Alcohol muy bien integrado. una cerveza muy buena, un buen ejemplo de una Roja Flamenca. Con muchos matices y bastante compleja pero fácil de beber,

Sour taste, very sweet. No oak flavor despite being oak aged. Aroma smells mostly sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On sent le baril de chêne et l'acidité perçante. J'adore cette bière. Bien joue qu'on en trouve facilement a la SAQ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beautiful red color with off-white head and an exotic, winey aroma. Flavor is sour, balanced with malt, which is interesting, and assertive. Yeasty flavors underneath and a tinge of hops in the finish. Nice, outside-the-box brew. I like it.

A beautiful bordeaux beer with notes of blackberries. Very sweet and very suitable to accompany a dessert.
