Sweet and fresh beer with a fruity character, also I’d swear they added a bit of Fristi to the flavours.

Ruby-red in color with a a fine head and a wonderful lacing of the glass. DO NOT drink when it is too cold as you will miss much of the drinking experience. Allow it to warm as the label suggests to 47-53 degrees F. The tannin and vinegar detectable in the flavor & aroma are similar to those found in a fine balsamic. There is also a slight ’oakiness’ noticable in the aroma. Beautifully done!

This is a good sour ale. Very deep in color creamy head and a unique full flavour. Has a bitterly sweet flavor that is perfect for after dinner or a pre dinner cocktail. Surprisingly light for all its rich tones.

FOAMer (45) - Bartlesville, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Malt sweetness, noticable at first. Sour notes light acitic acid notes as well a slight woody note. Dried fruit notes come thourgh as the beer warms. Light brown in color with light ruby tint when held to the light. Light off-white head that clings to the side of the glass. Malt Sweetness in noticable upfront then cut through with a light sourness in the back. Cherries come to mind in the flavor of this beer.

Belle apparence mais un odeur d’éthanol ressort. Au fur et a mesure de la dégustation, elle gagne en intérêt.

Pours a dark red color with very small amount of head. It is both sweet and sour with aromas of brandy as well as a strange taste of marinated meat in worcestershire sauce.

aletiosso (45) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 6, 2013
Cor vermelha bem escura. Media formação de espuma e persistência. Aroma de vinagre balsâmico, frutado. Sabor medio de vinagre balsâmico, um azedo gostoso. Um pouco frutada. Dulçor marcante. Ameixas, cereja e um pouco de passas. Muito interessante! Gostei bastante. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A real cherrybomb of sweetness and great aroma. This is the one beer you need not to miss.

Just add some olive oil and you’ll have a nice balsamic salad dressing. Dark cherry after taste. A bit too sweet for my liking. Does get better towards the bottom of the bottle.

Poured a nice brown red. There was little head which dissipated quickly. Little lacing to speak of. The aroma was sour which was misleading. The taste was great. A tangy sweetness followed by a mild bitter finish. Great beer.
