3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Imbibed in November 2002. I really enjoy this beer as a result of the synergy of the flavors. A weird combination but nonetheless quite pleasing. A fruity wine aroma with a hint of vinegar. Pours a clear burgondy red color with a hint of brown. A medium head that rapidly disappears, leaving a small island of tiny bubbles in the middle of the glass that is surrounded by a thicker ring of bubbles on the edge of the glass. A medley of flavors on the tongue! Sweetness, wine, balsamic vinegar, faint soy, and currants. Mild carbonation but quite fizzy on the tongue. Medium mouthfeel with a clean finish.

A sour reddish beer with a impressive red / brown look and still clear taste even of fruit. Wine is very present in the palate and saving it from only being sour. Very different but still enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 Where do I start? This beer is great. Pours a deep red with a large white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and fruit. Not overly sour and balanced with a sweet finish. This is candy not beer.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark reddish Brown with asmall quickly dissipaing head. Viegary "wine-ish" smell. Some Coca Cola like aromas. Tastes sour and sweet at the same time. No hps whatsoever is detectable nor is the alcohol noticeable. Gives the distinct impression if balsamic vinegar. Nice and sourwith hints of dried fruits. Sour finish that sits on the tongue for a good long enjoyable time.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2005 Bottle, 25cl. Nice label. Dark ruby colour with a beautiful, lasting and creamy beige head. Nice carbonation. The first contact is primarily vinegary, with hints of fruits as well. Flavour is strong vinegar, sweet and sour, with small notes of berries. Nevertheless, the end is very sharp and the combination with what i was eating wasn’t quite pleasant. Maybe with cheese? Definitely, not my type of beer although i could consider this a very good experience.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours a very clear reddish brown with a thick off white head. The nose is sour with a hint of rotting fruit and sour milk. The nose sort of scares me. The taste is a sour sweetness on the front with a sharp acidic sweet spike in the middle. It reminds me of a gueze, in as far as it is a sour sweetness with a sharp bite on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle: Pours a dark reddish brown, with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is of vinegar and is quite tart. Flavor is of dark fruit and is medium sweet with a nice lasting apple tartness. Nice and smooth on the palate but lacking in carbonation. A head is easily formed with a swirl of the glass. Not nearly as good as I remember when it was on tap. I might buy it again, but not anytime soon.
