Pour is deep reddish brown, with a very dense pinkish tan head. Moderate lacing. Nose of caremel, apple, cider vinegar. Taste is slightly sour, sweet malt, apple, some lemon and rose water. Moderate carbonation with a smooth mouth feel.

Wow this is a really nice beer that is something that has amazing complexity. It is a little sweet, but it balances nicely with the sour. Carbonation is perfect and the twang of sour mates itself very well. There are notes of cherry, plums and oak. A chocolate whisper comes to mind in the finish. What a head really nice long lingering head as you pour into a glass. I would recommend with a Bavarian Chocoloate cherry cake. A real winner and a must try for every Belgian beer lover.

Flavour: Combination of sweet fruity and sour qualities which i just luv luv luv. Cant believe i can get this locally now in london. Awesome and unsual a great palate cleanser between stouts and lambics.

An excellent and delicious example of this style. Yes it is red, and sour and a little sweet. It has depth and character and lingers on the palatte wonderfully.

Very interesting beer. Reminds me of the more acidic of the Lambics. Pretty balanced flavor I could best describe as sweet-tart. Sharp carbonation similar to other Belgians. I would definitely drink this again.

Bell’aspetto tonaca di frate con riflessi rosso/ramati, schiuma ocra abbastanza persistente.
Naso vinoso, acido, con frutti rossi in evidenza.
Bocca abboccata, acida, con un corpo medio e una live chiusura amara.....

I had this on draft. A fantastic yeast/ sour aroma with a hint of fruit. A refreshing sour flavor mixed in with plum and finishing with raison. Tasted almost like wine. Great!

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.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2006 Bottle. Brilliant reddish color, extremely clear, thick light tan head that last. Aroma is sour with a fair amount of dark fruit--cherries and plums, and perhaps a touch of smokiness. Body is medium. Well balanced between malt and sourness. A light sweetness upfront, followed by a significant sourness that last into the finish. Dark fruits are there and again, a hint of smokey character. Overall, fantastic beer if you like sour beers (and I do!). The sourness is significant enough to be a key part of the beer, but there is enough balance to make it fairly easy to drink. I love it.
