Aroma is ultra sweet malts, sour apple and cherry. Taste is sweet sour cherry, some caramel, vinegar, and a less that desirable aftertaste that takes away from an otherwise very good beer.

After riding a Hop wave for months a local bartender poured me a glass without telling me what i was drinking. Really good. People are right, strong cider and vinegar flavours. Beautiful colour. I found some locally very soon in the form of a 1pt 9.4oz bottle. Poured on my own I can smell and see this wonderful brew much better. I very much enjoy that it bubbles from the bottom of my 23oz glass well after my initial pour. Certainly a welcome change from my usual 100+ IBU selections.

This is one of the best sour ales that I have had in a very long time. Ports if fruits. Excellent.

Clear ruby beer with stable wite head. Aroma of wine, sour fruits and alcohol. Tastes of cherries and wine, it’s sour with long fruity aftertaste. Lively carbonation. Very good, noble beer.

Cor marrom escuro, brilhante. Espuma boa, bege, cremosa e média persistência. Aroma de vinagre. No paladar, equilíbrio entre o ácido e o azedo do balsâmico, vivaz e frutas secas. Remete a um vinho amadeirado e seco. Retrogosto ácido e seco. Surpreendente!!!! Explosão de sensações!!!!

Dark ruby color with nice, lasting off white head. Aroma is vinegary and a little fruity. Taste is better, sour, tangy, fruity, sweet, a little malty - caramel. Nice beer overall. Dry finish.

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.

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

Imbibed in November 2002. I really enjoy this beer as a result of the synergy of the flavors. A weird combination but nonetheless quite pleasing. A fruity wine aroma with a hint of vinegar. Pours a clear burgondy red color with a hint of brown. A medium head that rapidly disappears, leaving a small island of tiny bubbles in the middle of the glass that is surrounded by a thicker ring of bubbles on the edge of the glass. A medley of flavors on the tongue! Sweetness, wine, balsamic vinegar, faint soy, and currants. Mild carbonation but quite fizzy on the tongue. Medium mouthfeel with a clean finish.
