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.

A dark rich red/amber hue with an exquisite creamy head. A subtle red wine (Cabernet/Merlot) aroma is noticed when it first approaches the mouth. Upon the first taste, it has a lush & soft mouth feel. Reminds me of tasting a dark chocolate coated fruit, maybe a fresh off the vine strawberry, which is amazingly sweet, yet tart all at the same time. A very nice drink that could compliment any meal. What it treat it was! I hope to enjoy it again soon.

Bottle.Dark ruby brown body with a large fizzy and creamy lasting head. Sour smell of wineager. Flavor is sour, sweet with som notes of wood and sour berries. Way to sour for me, probably not bad for its style, but i certainly dont like the style now.

bierbeek (97) - Beek, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2013
33cl bottle. Dark red brown colour. Big beige head, dissemininates quickly. Aroma of cherries and vinegar. Taste is sweet in the beginning: cherries, old coffee, caramel, sugar and tofee. Finish is sour, vinegar, not tart. Light body. It surprises me in a positive way. A little bit like a Rodenbach

Bottle: pours dark brown with little head. It has a nice wine aroma. A bit tart but still sweet. Big cherry nose. A bit like a sour green apple on the finish.

Dark brown with about an inch of creamy head that fell fairly quickly, leaving a great lace. The aroma is tart, yeasty, and very sharp. The taste itself is excellent and complex, with both sweet and sour flavours. There’s a fruity touch there, and a smooth aftertaste that really rate this one high on the drinkability.

BeerMePodcast (96) - Palm Desert, California, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Dark fruits, slightly woody and faintly leathery. Fruit notes come out a bit more in the taste with a touch of sweetness and a slightly sour finish. Nice balance between a light and medium body. Goes extremely well with a chocolate raspberry mousse cake!
