Pours a brownish red with a wonderful, fluffy, aromatic head. The aroma is full of fruit: dark grapes, dates, figs, apple, some cherry. Body is medium, smooth, a bit syrupy. The flavour is sour initially with a whole bunch of golden delicious apple, fig, cherry, wood in the finish.

0,25 bottle. Dark. Taste is of aples and sour. Wine-like. Aroma sour and of alcohol. Great stuff!

Pours deep ruby red with a big frothy head. Aroma is apple cider vinegar. Hard for me to pick the nuances in the aroma because that’s really all I can smell; this is probably a result of my inexperience with sours. I do get a hint of citrus if I try really hard to smell beyond the ACV. Taste is pretty sweet. With tasting, more of the fruit notes come through: predominately apple, but also some citrus and grape. Getting almost no hop notes at all. Kind of like a fruit beer, but with a little more funk. Mouthfeel is light with light carbonation as well. Interesting and refreshing. Would like to try more sours so I have something to compare this to.

Unique and legendary beer, with aroma of cherries, vanilla, grapes and almonds. Dark red/ruby, small head. Sweet and sour at the same time, a bit like sweet red wine. This beer is a must for every beer geek!

Red-dark colour. A good Flanders red, however I found it a little too sweet and a little less tart than I prefer. This is a great looking brew though, with an excellent rocky head and nice lacing.
The favorite of my father.

Thick, tan head, amber, lively body with moderate lacing on the glass. Sour, musty aroma. A delightfully balanced sweet and sour flavor.

What a beautiful beer. Pours like the style suggests a light brownish crystal color with good head retention. Aroma is floral with hints of grapefruit. Taste is amazing and complex with the solid malt backbone and a beautiful tart finish. Great acidity would make this an awesome food beer. Really enjoyed this one.

tulip.Burgundy color small white head. Aromas of hay, wheat and citrus character. Taste reminds me a lot of the acidic flavor profile of a green apple peel, there is also some berry sweetness and apple cider. Moderate body and leave behind good notes of apple.

Molasses, raisin, grape juice smell. Beautiful, deep dark amber. Persistent head with excellent lacing and mild carbonation. First taste is very much like grape juice, sweet and acidic. Medium- to full-bodied, but champagne-like. Certainly unique.
