Red appearance with a minimumsized head. Aroma is really woody and oaky with lots of sweentess. Flavor is complex with a nice sweetsour taste to it and lots of acidity.

Straight from the bottle enjoyed on a summit over Lago Lugano, Switzerland. This was recommended to me by the wife/owner of A Tutta Birra in Milano as her favorite. Most interesting beer I’ve had so far in Italy. The aroma reminded me of rotting trash and at first sip so did the flavor. Further sips revealed sour cherries, dark fruits, apricot and vanilla. Incredibly smooth on the palate, absolutely no kick at the end. Much too sweet for me, almost could be considered a dessert beer in the same vein as dessert wines.

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.

Fruity, berry and brown sugar aroma. Dark red clear liquid, white-brown head. Well balanced high sweetness and sourness. Bitter-sweet finish, soft carbonation. One of the best in its style!

The proto-typical Flemish Sour. there are better one’s out there, but this is a great benchmark for determining if you like the style or not. Beautful deep ruby color with a nice creamy head. Great head retention and lacing. Wonderful aromas of green apple, sherry and grapes. The old and young ales are certainly distinguishable along with a slightly assertive oak presence. Sourness on the palate is definate something to behold, but is not as complex or aggressive as with the Panil Barriquée. A wonderfully done ale and a great introduction to the style.

A sour reddish beer with a impressive red / brown look and still clear taste even of fruit. Wine is very present in the palate and saving it from only being sour. Very different but still enjoyable.

Idealnie wywazone jesli chodzi o slodycz, kwasnosc i goryczke. Piwo bardzo fajnie uklada sie w ustach. Bardzo fajnie orzezwia. W smaku ciemne owoce i taki ocet winno-balsamiczny. Trzeba koniecznie sprobowac!

Een zeer bittere smaak, komt waarschijnlijk door de looistoffen van de eiken vaten.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Dark red. Aroma like church wine. Thickish, very fruity but not a good fruitiness, maybe plum, just doesn’t do it.
