Murky dark colored, with a thin head. The aroma is very sour. A friend described it as the smell of puke (which i don’t agree on). The taste itself is very sour and takes a little time to get used to. Need another bottle to try before i can make a good judgement

Rich nad complex flavors. Deep mahogany with minimal head, cherry and cider smeels and taste with crispy carbonation. Sour cherry taste, tart with mild vinegar taste and delicious aftertaste.

Poured into a glass and drunk at room temperature. Strong sour cherry aroma that can be smelled as soon as you open the bottle. Medium head that diminishes quickly. Deep red in colour, and looks almost syrup-y in a glass. The taste is both surprisingly sweet and moderately sour, especially in the finish. Medium strong carbonation that is very refreshing. A nice beer to start the day off with!

cathschlag (48) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2006
Odeur d’alcool assez présente. On sent les cerises, le poivre. Suberbes bulles. Couleur brun profond. Très effervescente en attaque. Arrière-goût au palais en finale.

Not My style at all. Has a little to much sweetness and sour notes. just not doing it for me.

Plenty of vinegar, cherry, wood, and carbonation. Different to say the least. Pretty good, will try again

Pours a dark, reddish brown. Nose is mild acetic acid, dark fruits underneath. Taste is unexpectedly delightful, red grapes, figs and other dark fruits. Finish is slightly astringent. Very enjoyable!

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

BrewSquid (45) - Plattsburg, Missouri, USA - NOV 10, 2006
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!

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.
