ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2008
Pours a dark rusty reddish color with a thick foamy head. Smells of tart cherries, apples, and fermented grapes. First sip is mellow with sours notes that are subdued and quiet, not “In your face.” Cherries, green apples, raisins, maybe a tad of brown sugar, all combining in flavor. Creamy mouthfeel, but slightly under carbonated. Considerably more sweeter than sour, the brew finishes well with a little stronger bitterness. Very Good.

mwesth (279) - Skovlunde, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2004
I have had this several times before rating it.. Dark reddish coloured with a huge head. Lumps of yeast floating in the beer - just like an old homebrew! Very thick mouthfeel, almost like a good port or sherry. A fantastic blend of sourness and a nearly cloying sweetness. Sharp, sour and mouthwatering aftertaste. Too bad it is so damned expensive in DK!

Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - OCT 8, 2003
A lot of carbonation. looked like half flat coke being poured. I couldn't pick out a whole lot out of the sourness. I think i need more of this.

morri (277) - NORWAY - MAY 3, 2013
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Tiny off-white head which vanishes almost immediately. Dark red body. Aroma of vinegar and apple cider. Quite sour, and also sweet at the same time. Dry down the throat, which suits the style well.

wojciechianna (276) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Clear ruby beer with stable wite head. Aroma of wine, sour fruits and alcohol. Tastes of cherries and wine, it’s sour with long fruity aftertaste. Lively carbonation. Very good, noble beer.

mreeves (276) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Pours a brownish color, with a nice head and good lacing. Sour aroma, very wine-like. Looks and tastes like a red wine. Vinegary, tart flavor. Can't really detect any hops here. Good, interesting, but not my favorite style.

Dark brown with a thin but solid head. Sweet aroma carrying wine and pine. Flavour is tart, sweet, and smoky with a viscous mouthfeel.

Marthinus (276) - DENMARK - MAR 21, 2010
Pours darky red/close to black with a large white¨but not lasting head. The aroma is of red wine a litlle plum. Taste is oak, plum, with a good complex aftertaste.

ANZUShophunter (275) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2015
From 25 cL bottle in Belgian ale glass. Pours deep crimson with acetic acid nose that mellows as it warms releasing some sweet malty scents. Cherry tartness hits the palate and malt sweetness breaks through as the tartness fades. My first red sour: intriguing complexity that changes with temperature.

Kiezmar (275) - POLAND - MAY 3, 2016
Dark red, creamy foam, good lacing. In aroma a lot of apples, aroma is simmiliar to cider aroma. Despite that we have some other fruits, and some wood. In tase a lot of fruits, some wood. Palate: sour, dry and harsh.
