Found this at a favorite pub in Maastricht and came highly reccomended from a friend. Great color and very interesting taste. A perfect blend of dry red wine and beer. Strong notes and taste of blackberry and nice smooth aftertaste. The only way I can really describe this beer is to imagine Blackberry juice and Iced tea with a lambic beer kick. Perfect summer afternoon brew.

The first impression when I smelled this was how beautiful it smelt. The first taste I thought was a little too sweet especially for a Geuze. But then again it is not too sweet. Overall the taste is beautiful. Unusual and very enjoyable.

This is a strange one, the smell does not really invite to taste it, but once you get over this, the taste is surprisingly soft and sweet. Not for everyones taste, but it’s worth to give it a try !

Really drinkable. Some think it is overpowering but it is well balanced. A decent beer for the masses and great introduction to a Flemish Sour.

Très bonne bière brune, belle robe brun/rouge, fines bulles, un centimètre de mousse blanche. Goût très sucré, parfum de raisin, épaisseur en bouche... on a l’impression de boire du vin pétillant ! A découvrir.

One of my all time favorite sour beers, on the sweeter side, not too sour as many in this style can be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tart, fruit forward with a beautiful red color and touch of sweetness. All the flavors are well blended all all the edges well rounded.

Not bad looking, but absolutely not my favorite. Especially its aftertaste is disappointing. Cheers.

Bottled, poured in a tulip glass. It pours a brownish red, with a light tan head. The head lingers around for quite some time. It has a strong aroma of fruits, tarts and some wine characteristics. It has a strong taste of fruits such as cherry and some melon. It is very palatable. It is an amazing beer overall!!

Very good Flemish Red Ale - one of the best. Slightly more sour than the Bourgogne de Flanders and Rodenbach, making more traditional, beutiful color
