3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
ENG: 330ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the tulip. Very dark red, clear color, nice, thick, light-beige head and plenty of lacing. Aromas of fortified wine / cherry liquor, red berries, a bit of alcohol. Very strong and sweet. Tastes sour but also strongly sweet, a lot of cherries and red berries, vinegar. Delicate aftertaste, a bit salty deep in the throat, medium body, low to medium carbonation. Overall greatly balanced between sour and sweet. I like it most from all sour beers I tried up to date.
PL: Butelka 330ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do kieliszka. Barwa ciemno-czerwona, klarowna, ładna, gęsta, jasno-beżowa piana i dużo lejsingu. Aromaty wzmocnionego wina albo nawet nalewki wiśniowej, czerwona porzeczka, nieco alkoholu. Bardzo mocne i słodkie. W smaku kwaśnawe, ale i bardzo słodkie, bardzo mocno wiśniowe i porzeczkowe, do tego vinegar. W posmaku lekkie, nieco słone - głęboko w gardle, średnie odczucie w ustach, niskie do średniego nasycenie. Podsumowując bardzo fajnie zbalansowane pomiędzy kwaśnością a słodyczą. Najbardziej smakujące mi piwo z tego stylu jakie do tej pory miałem okazję spróbować.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
My first flemish sour. Pours a great dark reddish, brown color with no sediment, which surprises me. Aroma is somwhat wine like and fruity. Flavor is very sour and fruity, and very sweet. I can’t say that I love this style or beer, but I can’t say it is a bad beer. If you like the style you’ll probably like this.

Red in the glass. Fruity in the nose. Thin mouthfeel. Sour fruity taste with a dry finish. Kinda boring but not at all bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a reddish deep brown, copper when held to the light. Off white head without much retention. Smells strongly of balsamic vinegar, yeast, cherries, and grapes. Has a sharp up front taste, which proceeds to the feeling you have just ate a slice of bread. Not as sour as the aroma leads on, but could be too much for some people.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown with a fizzy head that disapears very quickly, the head almost looks like a soda pop being poured. Smells of grapes, apricot, raisins, prunes and sherry. Has a tartness, and a sweetness, tastes of deep fried potato, apple and red grapes. Very fruity and complex. Nice lacing.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Dark red pour like cola. Smelled like sour fruits and vinegar. Tasted like vinegar and candy-apple. At first I liked it... although I couldn’t even finish the bottle it got so bad. I would not recommend this--especially considering how expensive it is. This beer practically gave me nightmares.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle poured into tulip. Pours a dark brown with some copper highlights with a very fine head which eventually fades to a ring. Aroma is so-so barnyard, cherries and sour apple. Taste is a very well done balance of sweet and sour; it has a good level of sweetness and if you would remove some tartness it could taste close to Lindemans’ faro, in my opinion. So yes, some might find it a bit sweet but I find it’s perfectly OK. Body is light, and texture is thin/slick. Carbonation is soft. Finish is just a tad astringent and medium-short, although the astringency remains a bit longer than the rest on the sides of your tongue. Overall a pretty good brew, if you ask me. Pretty refreshing too! I’m glad we have access to this in Quebec, Canada, as our liquor board (SAQ) has a reputation of maintaining a pretty mixed selection of brews...meaning either really good, or utterly atrocious. Well done.

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.
