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.

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!!!!

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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
