Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thick egg shell colored head. Aroma was like vinegar, malt, cherries, must, funk, and markers. Taste was interesting cherries and malt playing nicely off of one another with a hint of vinegar much like the smell. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with a nice tangyness to it. An excellent sour ale that I will be having again.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2009 Bottle. Pours a dark reddish-brown. Aroma of wood, balsamic vinegar, and fruit. Flavor starts very sweet... caramel like. Very creamy and smooth. But too sweet to put it up at the top with my favorites.

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.

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.

Dark liquid, small head. Strange winelike aroma. Medium body, no carbonation. Taste is sweet and bitter.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 750ml, pours clear brown with small white head, that lasts for quite a long time. Aroma of grapes, white wine, honey, vinegar, raisins and some delicate barnyard. In taste high sourness followed by heavy sweetness. No bitterness at all. IMO sweetness is a to high, but still it?s easy drinkable. Very fruity but when drinking for a longer time it starts being very insipid. Good beer but more than 300ml is to much.
