Aroma is light farmhouse and Belgian funk. Palate is dark sour fruits. A good sweetness and acidic sour balance. So completely put together and full flavored and balanced. An amazing beer

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance - dark brown. Mild head.
Aroma - slight funk. Hints of red wine.
Mouth - slight dry feel. Medium carbs. Mild aftertaste
Taste - hints of oaky red wine with very mild funk. Not mouth puckering but mild tart flavor. Aftertaste doesn't linger. Mild and refreshing. Not as bright as other sours.
Overall - pretty nice. I prefer something with a brighter profile and more bite.

Bottle 25cl. Red, almost brown with almost no top. Sour, fruity aroma. Taste has lots of fruits. Sweetness and sourness take turns. Good one!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep amber/ruby color. Thereís a decent two finger head with good retention.
Very sour and woody smell to it. Smells of cheap red wine.
Tart taste rules initially with a wine like taste lingering in the back. Delightful sourness that is a bit tainted in the finish by a metallic hint.
This brew feels wonderful on the tongue and is a delight to have. Itís not my favorite Flemish but certainly isnít bad beer to have on hand.

This is actually the first sour ale Iíve ever had. It was....interesting. Almost tasted like someone dumped some champagne in a brown ale and called it a new drink. Aroma itself is sour and smells of cherries/cranberries/orange. Flavor is tough to describe - very tart, a little malty, hint of apple on the finish. I expected something more sour than this, but still enjoyed it.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber color, low carbonation and little head which disapears quickly. Sour aroma, like apples. Sweet and sour taste. Very fruity. The smell was lovely, too bad the taste was far too sweet for my liking.

Really nice, a classic even. Great fruit and yeast aroma with a taste that backs it up.

Beautiful ruby coloured beer, with a small white head. An interesting sour ale...had a nice sweet sour cherry taste. Not a large hoppy taste to overpower the cherries...it was very well balanced.

4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from 9.4 oz. bottle
Aroma: Hint of fruit and light hops reminds of a sweet red wine
Appearance: Beautiful deep, clear, deep reddish brown. Head is fantastic. Antique white in color that has a wide variance in bubble size that laces nicely and sustains thoughout the entire glass.
Flavor: My bottle was very sweet to the point of being as sweet as a lambic. Very sweet, apple and cherry, like a sweet cider or lambic.
Palate: Finishes sweet too. Some acidity as the aftertaste lingers. Reminds me of a Reisling.
Overall: Suprisingly I enjoyed this immensely even though it was cerrtainly not what I expected out of a Begian Ale with 6% Alcohol. Theme should be obvious from above sweet sweet sweet.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours copper with a nice, light brown head. Aroma shows raspberry, balsamic vinegar and oak. Palate has sweet malt that brings berries before the oak kicks into gear and delivers a dry, salty mustiness to it. Finishes with chalky, slightly tart acidity.
