A real cherrybomb of sweetness and great aroma. This is the one beer you need not to miss.

Just add some olive oil and you’ll have a nice balsamic salad dressing. Dark cherry after taste. A bit too sweet for my liking. Does get better towards the bottom of the bottle.

Poured a nice brown red. There was little head which dissipated quickly. Little lacing to speak of. The aroma was sour which was misleading. The taste was great. A tangy sweetness followed by a mild bitter finish. Great beer.

1 of 8 beers I enjoyed at Prohibition Taproom’s Sour Event during Philly Beer Week. Solid sour, but it is not standing out today. Would like to try again on its own and reevaluate it

Bottle, 33cl, shared half-half with a friend straight from the bottle (which means I can’t rate for appearance or aroma). Has a sweeter taste than Rodenbach Grand Cru, but doesn’t lack any complex notes. Tastes like a bit like wine (which I suspect is the barrel aging). Nice, but too sweet for a sour.

1 toasty sweetness, no hop aroma, raisin 2 light brown with a dissipating tan head 3 Caramel sweetness with some cherry and almond 4 medium body with average carbonation, slight astringency 5 An enjoyable sour brown, I would have liked more sourness to balance the caramel sweetness

Really nice sour red ale. Aroma of vinegar, sour cherries, cranberries - similar to red wine. Really nice head, great, sour taste. One of the best in this style.

750ml bottle in a snifter. Pours a medium brown color with a ruby tint. Aroma of sour cherries and vinegar. Flavor is different from the bottle than the last time I had this on tap, much sweeter and less sour. Taste opens up with sweet fruits, mostly cherry, grape and apple pie. Finishes with a tart, slightly vinegar flavor. Body is medium with medium to high carbonation. Overall I really enjoy this beer and am a big fan of Flanders reds in general.

I tasted this beer before I got my account with ratebeer, so I can’t really remember all the flavors.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Footy nose with hints of fruit. Reminiscent of a lambic. Tart and sour flavor. A lambic without the fruit, perhaps. Complex flavors that went way too sour for my taste.
