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.

Øllen har et fint mørkt udseende, samt har en frugtig og sød smag. Desuden har øllen en mild skum som egner sig godt til øllen.

Livendadream (191) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Btl pours a clear auburn color with red highlights. Nice fluffy off white head vanishes quickly leaving spots of lace on glass. Smells of vinegar,alcohol,over ripe fruit, dates,figs, and earth. Tastes of sour cherries, sweet candy,wood and red wine. Medium body, soft mouthfeel,lively carbonation and a dry tart finish. The sweet flavors complement the sour taste, making this beer perfectly balanced. It is nice and refreshing and very tasty. You can tell a lot of time and effort was put into this beer. Fantastic!

Lanchester (191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2011
Pours a cherry amber hue with a prominent and pillowy off-white head, thinning out to leave nice lacing around the glass. Aroma is an enticing blend of caramelized malts and dark fruits, with slightly woody and boozy undertones. Flavor is a very up front sourness that definitely surprised me at first, though it quickly subsides and gives way to a nice cherry/raspberry character. Finishes dry and leaves a lingering fruity and slightly grainy flavor on the tongue. Very lively on the palate, the strong yet smooth carbonation really help to tie the flavors together and balance out the initial sourness. Highly drinkable, and complex beer, the alcohol content is very well masked.

Aroma acido con un toque avinagrado, madera y caramelo y frambuesa. Sabor dulce residual con final acido!

Mtl beer fest. Ok, so I could see how people would love this, but not me. Flavour was dominantly sour, way to sour for me. Cource, I dont like sour beer. Might be great for you, not so great for me. Cheers

Die_Kapusta (191) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2010
Pours very intense cherry red. Tiny head. Aroma is very exciting, with notes of balsamico, red apples, lingonberries and a bit of sour dough. Taste is acidic, with a somewhat balanced sweetness. I taste blackberries, raspberries, blood grapefruit and cherries. I haven´t had a lot of sour ales so I´m far from an expert, but I really liked this one.

750 ml with a bottle with an expiration date of 6/2012 on the cork, poured into a Belgian tulip glass. Clear, dark brown mahogany color with brilliant ruby highlights held up to the light. Thick tan head leaves some lacing. Slight vinegar, sour smell, but very mellow. Just a mild vinegar tartness, slightly offset by a sweet brown sugar taste with some grape, cherries and even some wine qualities. Medium bodied, soft mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation. Very smooth and delicious, one of the most enjoyable sour type beers I’ve had to date. I’m thinking this would pair nicely with a large ceasar salad. But smooth enough that it makes a nice session beer -- enjoyed drinking the entire bomber while watching football.

330ml bottle. Another try after a nauseatingly sweet attempt many years ago. Small head on a reddish brown body. Nose is of raspberries and cherry, wood, and apple cider vinegar. Flavor is much of the same with sweetness and oak coming through very strong. Finish is short and fairly clean. While I’d like more acid, it’s a tasty and easy to drink sour.

Precioso color rubí oscuro y espuma efímera. El aroma es ácido, avinagrado, y el sabor agridulce y complejo. Es una cerveza muy personal, a mí no me gusta, me recuerda a las lambic azucaradas, estilo que detesto. Quizás con un buen maridaje.
