4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of currants, cherries, and raisins. Flavor profile matches the aroma with some stone fruit and dark raisin flavors with a medium sourness that is balanced by some residual sweetness. Deep red color. Fantastic beer.

(30 Aug 04) Amazing. What more can I say, I was enthralled and in love with this beer the entire time. It took me back to the first time I tasted a Flemish Sour (Rodenbach Grand Cru) but this time there was a completely different texture to experience. My wife hated this beer and actually spat it back into her glass! That didn’t bother me though as I happily enjoyed her share! :) The pour was the most surprising part as it was like warm maple syrup. I have never seen a beer this viscous before. It was the colour of rubies with an almost non-existent light-brown head and very little, if any, lacing. I can only describe the aroma as what I imagine port-wine vinegar would smell like, and to a sour-head like myself that is devine. The body was only moderately mouth-filling but it was so very thick and syrupy. I have used the term "chewy" to describe plenty of beers, but this one truely was! Flavour-wise is was acidic, vinegary and very delicious.

330ml bottle. Clear brown/red with off-white head. Aroma has winegar and red berries. Flavor is sweet with red cherries and currants. Almost feel like a red dessert wine. Nice, but certainly not very drinkable.

This was a sweet ale with much carbonation. It reminded me of a malt liquor, perhaps it was because of the subtle sourness. strong citrus flavor. Not the belgian i expected, but good nonetheless.

Pours an amber color with a bubbly head and delicate lacing. Aroma is sweet/tart, fruity and maple. Flavor is sweet/tart, oak, fermented apple juice and sour candy. Very yummy, refreshing and tart.

bottiglia da 0.75, colore ambrato scuro quasi nero, con una schiuma fine e persistente, all’odero risalta la frutta mentre al palato si sentono ciliegie per finire con una nota acida, buonissima

De olor muy ácida, con toque a vino dulce, tema del lactobacilus. Avinagrada, con toque a madera y clavo. En boca dulce, agradable, con un toque tostado muy sutil y algo de cereza. Color marrón rojizo muy bonito

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2011 Rich deep red on the pour, lovely frothing white head above. Lifting to my nose, and this deep rich cherry note greets me. Sour, bittersweet, attractive. Alluring. In the mouth very full and sweet, cherry flavours throughout, delicious, sweet desert flavours. Lovely for sipping on a winters night. Not for quaffing or for hop heads, I’d say!
