Dark brown with reddish hue. Large, dense off-white foamy head that fades slowly and leaves foamy lace. Strong aroma of sour yeast, cranberries, barnyard. Taste is a juicy sweetness with tart balance, cranberry and apple, with a deeper, sweeter black cherry finish. Medium body and very high carbonation make this like drinking an amazing sparkling juice.

Tap. Iím not usually a fan of sour beers, and while this one smells a little too sour, itís pretty tasty. Hints of apple and cherry. A little too much apple cider vinegar taste. Would drink again.

AgedOak (99) - Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2007
A dark rich red/amber hue with an exquisite creamy head. A subtle red wine (Cabernet/Merlot) aroma is noticed when it first approaches the mouth. Upon the first taste, it has a lush & soft mouth feel. Reminds me of tasting a dark chocolate coated fruit, maybe a fresh off the vine strawberry, which is amazingly sweet, yet tart all at the same time. A very nice drink that could compliment any meal. What it treat it was! I hope to enjoy it again soon.

Bottle.Dark ruby brown body with a large fizzy and creamy lasting head. Sour smell of wineager. Flavor is sour, sweet with som notes of wood and sour berries. Way to sour for me, probably not bad for its style, but i certainly dont like the style now.

bierbeek (97) - Beek, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2013
33cl bottle. Dark red brown colour. Big beige head, dissemininates quickly. Aroma of cherries and vinegar. Taste is sweet in the beginning: cherries, old coffee, caramel, sugar and tofee. Finish is sour, vinegar, not tart. Light body. It surprises me in a positive way. A little bit like a Rodenbach
