Thin weak head. A slight froth but disappears and is pretty weak. Dark orange to ruby an color, slightly cloudy and nothing overly exciting. From a distance, almost looks like a brown ale. Several different aromas going on here – sweet fruit, vanilla, fake scent at car wash – yellow tree style. As it warms up the banana Runts flavor begins to work its scent to the forefront. Interesting aroma. I’m tasting tartness up front, the body is noticeably thin. The finish is tart as well. Reminds me of hard apple cider. That aftertaste is funky : acidic leaves a sweet tart lingering flavor. Very good. Thin body accentuates this beer – light and slightly refreshing.

Outstanding beer. I’ve had this twice, most recently from a bottle at the Publick House in Brookline, MA. Beautiful red color. Foamy, white head that dissipates quickly. Notably tart and sour, but not overwhelmingly so-- just enough to round out the barley. Fruity aroma, in my girlfriend’s words, "like a super wine". Slight bitterness. Perfect, medium-light body and effervescent carbonation. My favorite beer next to Vuuve White. Find this if you can.

Wow, not expecting this sour ale to be so sweet, but not bad for balance. If it wasnt sour, it would be way too sweet. Kind of a desert beer. Good sour belgian ale smells. Tastes of cherries, and fruits, with a hint of caramel and slight roastiness from the dark mal.

Too much like a carbonated dessert wine for me. Tart cherry. Good if I was in the mood for something other than beer. Would give me a tummy ache, like malt beverages (a la Smirnoff). Eww.

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!

bottle. Initial pleasant vinegaric aroma turned into something no so pleasant. (nothing comparable to other sour beers I’ve tried...) Clear mahogany/ruby. White head, some leftovers stay till the end. Taste is nice, medium sweet, light/medium sour. Average carbonation, medium bodied, sour finish. Would be very good if it wasn’t for the aroma.

This is a good sour ale. Very deep in color creamy head and a unique full flavour. Has a bitterly sweet flavor that is perfect for after dinner or a pre dinner cocktail. Surprisingly light for all its rich tones.

balsamic vinegar on the nose with a hint of cherry or some other berry; cherries, red pepper; very balanced to say the least

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.
