UPDATED: FEB 5, 2003 Tart, sweet, cherry lambic-like, fruity aroma. Thick, light brown, mostly diminishing head. Ruby-red, brownish in appearance. Sweet, fruity, slightly tart, almost lambic-like (cherry/kriek specifically) start with a somewhat metallic(??? I think), mildly dry, kriek lambic-like finish. Very easy to drink. Less than medium body and a bit weak on the palate. Medium carbonation. Very enjoyable. Will certainly try again. See Ercvich's rating for better review.

Bottle. Pours a wonderful amber color with a large coffee and cream head that disappates fairly quickly. Wonderful Cabarnet scent. However this goes down as the first beer I almost threw right back up on the first swallow but further tastings show that it’s really not too bad. On the same lines as a lambic. OK, would most likely never drink again.

Pours a deep ruby-brown. Minimal head and lacing. Nose is red wine vinegar, oak, tart cherry, raspberry. Taste is cherry balsamic, wood, bit of cranberry. Hint of caramel. Medium body and fairly sweet. Finishes tart with a faint lingering sweetness. Really good.

the aroma is a strange combination of sweet and vinegar; dark brown color with a long-lasting tan head; the taste is definitely sour - too much so for my taste

eccellente birra. una delle poche birre che escono veramente dalla norma. vinosa sentori acidi di pom.e confettura.

Monchito_IPA (170) - SPAIN - JUL 26, 2014
Precioso color rubí oscuro y espuma efímera. El aroma es ácido, avinagrado, y el sabor agridulce y complejo. Es una cerveza muy personal, a mí no me gusta, me recuerda a las lambic azucaradas, estilo que detesto. Quizás con un buen maridaje.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Nice red pour, like red wiine vinegar. Whitish head sttays around for a few minutes and then vanishes. Very nice tart, and sour flavor, Think bing cherries, malt, and brown sugar all mixed together.

On tap at Palm Tavern. Pours dark red without much head. Aroma has funk, fresh fruit, and woody/oak notes. Flavor is similar but sweeter than the aroma led me to believe and also has some earthy quality. Much less sour and acidic than expected. Finishes with a tiny bit of alcohol warmth. Pretty nice beer.
