Mahogny body with a tan head. Sweet nose with a hint of maltiness. Very sour then tart flavor. No hops in the taste or aroma. I would drink again without a twist of the arm.

Poured from a 750ml bottle a deep mahogany with a very nice tan head and left great lacing. Aroma reminded me of black cherries, it had a vinous aroma, and a bit of apple cider vinager mixed in. Initial mouth feel is full of carbonation almost like drinking a brut champange. Flavor was like a cherry sweettart. It started out tart then in the finish you get the sweetness. I will drink more of this one.

Pours a clear, dark ruby with a very, very tall and pillowy head. Sweet vinegar or red wine aroma. Strong sour flavoring of bitter green apples. Mouthfeel is watery. Reminds me more of a very strongly flavored hard cider than beer. I can understand people who might like it, but it’s hard to get into the style.

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.

Cerveza de color rojo rubí con una cabeza de color beige. Aroma ácido y fuerte como el aroma fermentado de una Gueuze. Sabor suave y exquisito al principio, termina con un regusto ácido, muy complejo, que buena es esta cerveza.

this beer is definitely fun!!! winy, vinous aroma. the body looks like a coke or a pepsi without ice. the flavor was entertaining. one person tasted worcershire sauce, one soda, others including myself carbonated red wine. i really enjoyed this beer. the carbonation is just right, medium. the body is just acidic enough to clear the palate nicely. finishes with some dark fruit flavors, plums and some cherries, there is also a cidery aspect to this one, like a hard apple cider. a very nice drink, i think my girlfriend has a new favorite beer.

I love this style of beer! Sour cherries everywhere. It pours a very dark red/brown. Smells very acidic. A large white head foams leaving a small rim for the remander of the glass. Tastes of sour cherry, raw cranberries. Such a great style of beer.

Tap. Poured a deep red. Aroma of sourness and berries. Taste was a complex interplay of berries and oak balanced with mild sourness. Ultimately it finished with refreshing sweetness. Strong body.
