Inoven (184) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2016
Flesje gedeeld met familie. Koperkleurig bier met weinig schuim. Aroma is kriek achtig. Smaak is fruitig zuur (kriek). Geen nasmaak.

ManvsCity (183) - Redmond, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pour is clean and red with a medium beige head that fades to a thin persistent layer. Mild body carbonation gives a slight fizz to the tongue. Aromas of overripe cherries and brandy, pears, and a sweaty funk. Flavor is both sweet and lacto-tart, lots of rich black cherry-like fruit, oak, and possibly currents. Verges on cloying, but doesn’t quite reach that place. Hop bitterness is mostly absorbed by the malts and sugars. Slightly astringent aftertaste stays on the sides of the tongue and even reaches the nostrils. Quite a nice mix of sensations from this one.

SpaceMonkey (182) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 21, 2003
A roasted almond tone blends with a serious balsamic vinegar citrus and a touch of cinnamon. Arrives with a light beige head that lasts forever and a deep pool of crystal clear red-red-brown. This has a very unusual mix of sour and spice that is very nice. Starts off a bit sweet and puckers a bit and the end. A very well rounded beer.

couchand (182) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Strong acetic aroma, some oakiness. Dark caramel, small creamy head. Sweet, overbalancing the tart. Acidic on the tounge. Great!

LordBrew (181) - Ziemnice, POLAND - APR 19, 2015
Piękny, głęboki, ciemno-rubinowy kolor. Jasno beżowa pianka szybko znika ale łatwo ją wzbudzić. Aromat - wino, szmpan, piwo - gdybym nie wiedział, że to piwo byłoby ciężko decydować. Później pojawiają się nuty nalewki owocowej. Zniewalający aromat. Nisko wysycone,bardzo delikatnie kwaśne, może czuć nieco alkoholu. Dość słodkie, może nieco landrynkowe, najbliżej mu do wiśni. Słodycz bardzo dobrze wyważona z kwaśnością. Wybitne piwo.

kacperred (181) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 26, 2016
Kran. Barwa ciemnoczerwona, piwo klarowne. W aromacie potęga - początkowo uderza ocet, aby po chwili dopuścić do głosu bogate aromaty owocowe, cukierkowe, nuty kwaśnego jabłka oraz aromaty typowe dla brettów - stajenne. W smaku coś niesamowitego - początkowo uderzenie octowego kwasu, płynnie i dość szybko przechodzące w dużą cukierkowo-słodową słodycz. Skrajności idealnie się znoszące. Smakiem przypomina faro, lecz jest dużo bardziej bogate i słodsze. Piwo po prostu fantastyczne.

bjerkeaa (180) - NORWAY - NOV 16, 2013
Malty, yeasty aroma. Clear brown, amber colour. Very fruity and sparkly. Getting some cranberrry taste, and some other red berries. Maybe some boysenberry as well. Very mild sour taste and medium bodied.

mandaritto (179) - LATVIA - AUG 14, 2014
Red-brownish color. Great ballanced between sourness and sweetness - hints of berries - maybe cherries. Easy drinkable beer, too sweet/sour for me.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2013 Nice dark amber pour, with a quick acerbic palate. Taste is immediately sour, almost like an apple wine.
