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.

Murky dark colored, with a thin head. The aroma is very sour. A friend described it as the smell of puke (which i don’t agree on). The taste itself is very sour and takes a little time to get used to. Need another bottle to try before i can make a good judgement

Rich nad complex flavors. Deep mahogany with minimal head, cherry and cider smeels and taste with crispy carbonation. Sour cherry taste, tart with mild vinegar taste and delicious aftertaste.

Poured into a glass and drunk at room temperature. Strong sour cherry aroma that can be smelled as soon as you open the bottle. Medium head that diminishes quickly. Deep red in colour, and looks almost syrup-y in a glass. The taste is both surprisingly sweet and moderately sour, especially in the finish. Medium strong carbonation that is very refreshing. A nice beer to start the day off with!

Not My style at all. Has a little to much sweetness and sour notes. just not doing it for me.

Bottle. Near room temp. Rich brown red color, good carbonation, some white head and lacing. Great sweet and sour balsamic taste and palate, full bodied but light and crisp due to the good fizz. Maybe a bit too sweet. Very nice Flanders red.

Uitnodigende, interessant uitziende fles dus daarom gekocht. Bij het openen van het flesje had ik er al meteen spijt van, hij ruikt namelijk behoorlijk zuur maar ik had nog het idee dat het misschien een kersen bier was . Verschrikkelijk zuur bier, kan er zelfs niet veel anders over zeggen . Ontzettend zuur

Belle apparence mais un odeur d’éthanol ressort. Au fur et a mesure de la dégustation, elle gagne en intérêt.

Plenty of vinegar, cherry, wood, and carbonation. Different to say the least. Pretty good, will try again

Ruby-red in color with a a fine head and a wonderful lacing of the glass. DO NOT drink when it is too cold as you will miss much of the drinking experience. Allow it to warm as the label suggests to 47-53 degrees F. The tannin and vinegar detectable in the flavor & aroma are similar to those found in a fine balsamic. There is also a slight ’oakiness’ noticable in the aroma. Beautifully done!
