Pours a chesnut colour with a thick off white head. Aroma: tart dark fruit, balsamic vinegar, cherry stones, and a bit of funk. Flavour: Combination of sweet fruity and sour qualities which i just luv luv luv. Cant believe i can get this locally now in london. Awesome and unsual a great palate cleanser between stouts and lambics.

Wow this is a really nice beer that is something that has amazing complexity. It is a little sweet, but it balances nicely with the sour. Carbonation is perfect and the twang of sour mates itself very well. There are notes of cherry, plums and oak. A chocolate whisper comes to mind in the finish. What a head really nice long lingering head as you pour into a glass. I would recommend with a Bavarian Chocoloate cherry cake. A real winner and a must try for every Belgian beer lover.

An excellent and delicious example of this style. Yes it is red, and sour and a little sweet. It has depth and character and lingers on the palatte wonderfully.

shared by bartlebier 10/14, revisited with Konfuzzi, as a long tasting’s precautionary antidote to everything consumed so far - or so it seems, with that soothing aromas of warm, oaky acidity with some honey edges and that benevolent mild, deep, warm tartness throughout.
