5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
As perfect a sour beer as I've ever encountered, the rich ruby color pairs with a gorgeous creamy head, offering a medley of sour fruit flavored to the palette - apples, pears and cherries all make appearances. The taste is crisp, and the aftertaste is a perfect mirror of the initial flavors. This beer was my introduction to Belgian sours, and I've been chasing this dragon ever since.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 Where do I start? This beer is great. Pours a deep red with a large white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and fruit. Not overly sour and balanced with a sweet finish. This is candy not beer.

Dark reddish Brown with asmall quickly dissipaing head. Viegary "wine-ish" smell. Some Coca Cola like aromas. Tastes sour and sweet at the same time. No hps whatsoever is detectable nor is the alcohol noticeable. Gives the distinct impression if balsamic vinegar. Nice and sourwith hints of dried fruits. Sour finish that sits on the tongue for a good long enjoyable time.

Pours ruby colour with almost no head. Aroma of red wine vinegar, wild notes and cherry. Taste is pleasantly sour, wild, fruity with some delicate caramel notes in the background. Solid carbonation puts the beer next to champagne or a bottle of good red wine. Simply amazing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2005 Bottle, 25cl. Nice label. Dark ruby colour with a beautiful, lasting and creamy beige head. Nice carbonation. The first contact is primarily vinegary, with hints of fruits as well. Flavour is strong vinegar, sweet and sour, with small notes of berries. Nevertheless, the end is very sharp and the combination with what i was eating wasn’t quite pleasant. Maybe with cheese? Definitely, not my type of beer although i could consider this a very good experience.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours a very clear reddish brown with a thick off white head. The nose is sour with a hint of rotting fruit and sour milk. The nose sort of scares me. The taste is a sour sweetness on the front with a sharp acidic sweet spike in the middle. It reminds me of a gueze, in as far as it is a sour sweetness with a sharp bite on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle: Pours a dark reddish brown, with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is of vinegar and is quite tart. Flavor is of dark fruit and is medium sweet with a nice lasting apple tartness. Nice and smooth on the palate but lacking in carbonation. A head is easily formed with a swirl of the glass. Not nearly as good as I remember when it was on tap. I might buy it again, but not anytime soon.
