Pours an effervescent, frothy head that remains and laces down nicely. In the glass, it looks a lot like a Coke. Sour nose. Wow, the flavor is something special, tart and sweet, a little woody... hard to describe at this point in my beer-ducation. The complexity reminds me of a dubbel, but much sweeter and more tart. Loved one.

Bottle, the aroma is a strange combination of sweet and vinegar; dark brown color with a long-lasting tan head; the taste is definitely sour, very much my taste.......

One of my favs although it reminds me more of a wine. Nice reddish brown color with cherry and oak smells with maybe some raisin in there. Nice and sweet taste that needs to be sipped. Medium body and very full on the palate. Great beer IMO.

Dark redish, brown in the glass. Thick head, that leaves a heavy lacing on the glass. Smells sour and delicious. Taste is tart with a very sour aftertaste. Good sour

This is hands down one of my favorite beers and it has been for the longest time. I’m surprised it has taken me this long to rate it. Ive had this beer out of the bottle, as well as on tap which is my preference. It pours out a deep ruby color with a small tan head. It smells funky with vinegar, and fruit from the esters. It’s a well balanced Flemish Red and has just the right amount of tart/sour to it. I love this one and it is my regular go-to.

This was my first sour ale and I found it exceptionally different for anything I have had before. I was a little shocked by the taste at first but either because it was warming up or because it is an aquired taste, I began to enjoy it thouroughly. The aroma is very strong and smelled of vinegar. There was little to no head and it was a dark brown that glistened red in the light. The taste was almost like a bitter sour wine.

Clear and golden amber/brown with substantial tan head. Berry, grape and lightly sour aroma. Fruity tannin sour flavor. I am not a big fan of sour beers but this one is the best I have tasted. Still it is not an "ordinary beer" in any way and it does not blend well with your typical beer foods. The sourness requires some getting used to and my friends who enjoy exotic beers were all turned off by it. I would compare this style to a cider more than a beer...

En spennende og deilig øl. Masse frukt og sødme, litt kort i munnen kanskje, men fin likevel. Alkoholen merkes godt.

Yum and interesting, nice oak dry wine like finish boarding on a sour note at back of the palate. Great find and very enjoyable

Quite sour taste, it smells like white cheese, which isn't a recommendation.
