2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2005 Bottle, 25cl. Nice label. Dark ruby colour with a beautiful, lasting and creamy beige head. Nice carbonation. The first contact is primarily vinegary, with hints of fruits as well. Flavour is strong vinegar, sweet and sour, with small notes of berries. Nevertheless, the end is very sharp and the combination with what i was eating wasn’t quite pleasant. Maybe with cheese? Definitely, not my type of beer although i could consider this a very good experience.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dégustée à 13,6°C. Corps acajou marron couronné d’une mousse beige doré chantante, aérée, fine et dense qui fond peu à peu. Arômes de cerise aigre, vinaigre balsamique, boisés. Saveurs de cerise aigre à l’eau de vie, donc acidité mais également douceur; saveur boisée en contrepoint. Bière à part, qui me plaît beaucoup. Très bien avec des tripes à la mode de Caen; déjà appréciée sur un plat à base de thonine.

The beer pours a very clear reddish brown with a thick off white head. The nose is sour with a hint of rotting fruit and sour milk. The nose sort of scares me. The taste is a sour sweetness on the front with a sharp acidic sweet spike in the middle. It reminds me of a gueze, in as far as it is a sour sweetness with a sharp bite on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle: Pours a dark reddish brown, with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is of vinegar and is quite tart. Flavor is of dark fruit and is medium sweet with a nice lasting apple tartness. Nice and smooth on the palate but lacking in carbonation. A head is easily formed with a swirl of the glass. Not nearly as good as I remember when it was on tap. I might buy it again, but not anytime soon.

Aroma of currants, cherries, and raisins. Flavor profile matches the aroma with some stone fruit and dark raisin flavors with a medium sourness that is balanced by some residual sweetness. Deep red color. Fantastic beer.

(30 Aug 04) Amazing. What more can I say, I was enthralled and in love with this beer the entire time. It took me back to the first time I tasted a Flemish Sour (Rodenbach Grand Cru) but this time there was a completely different texture to experience. My wife hated this beer and actually spat it back into her glass! That didn’t bother me though as I happily enjoyed her share! :) The pour was the most surprising part as it was like warm maple syrup. I have never seen a beer this viscous before. It was the colour of rubies with an almost non-existent light-brown head and very little, if any, lacing. I can only describe the aroma as what I imagine port-wine vinegar would smell like, and to a sour-head like myself that is devine. The body was only moderately mouth-filling but it was so very thick and syrupy. I have used the term "chewy" to describe plenty of beers, but this one truely was! Flavour-wise is was acidic, vinegary and very delicious.
