Clear chestnut amber, great white foam. Aroma sour & sweet. Fantastic heavy sweet and sour flavor, too much for a long drink. Dessert wine style. Thick body, prickly / sour. Lovely beer. No reason to buy a large bottle. Purchased in Ølbutikken

Pours a clear dark amber with a nice tan head. Aroma is of fruits, cranberry, apple and oak. Lots of citrus and fruits in the flavor, some cranberry and sweet malts.

Aroma is of some malt, and much vinegar. This put me off at first, but it grew on me. As I sipped, I also noticed an oak undertone. The taste - needless to say - very sour. The palate is invigorating. This sour beer is not for everyone... but I think it’s amazing.

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.

Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2007 Pours dark brown with red accents. One finger of thick tan head. Aroma is intense sour with Worcestershire. Very satisfying full mouthfeel . Very sour...cherries...hint of soy. Sour/bitterness lingers for a bit, then finishes clean. Incredible! The first time I had this I couldn’t stand it. Now I can’t get enough! Thanks to Boboski for turning me on to this one.

On draft at Twains in Decatur. Reddish brown in color, nice frothy tannish head. Aroma pleasantly of sour dark cherries, hints of vinegar and slight wood. Flavor moderately sour, not overly assertive--underlying dark fruit and sugar sweetness that you don’t always find in a sour. Mild tartness, vinegar. Finishes slightly sweet, not really with the dryness I would prefer. Still, nice sour--probably the most accessible I’ve had.

250ml bottle. Dark brown body with a thin beige head. Aroma of red wine, acid and vinegar. Taste is sour fruity with hints of cherries and grapes. Nice carbonation. Interesting aftertaste

On sent le baril de chêne et l'acidité perçante. J'adore cette bière. Bien joue qu'on en trouve facilement a la SAQ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
