WOW, better than Roddenbach, the aroma will awaken your sense of smell. deep amber color with a decent head. Oaky, tangy, sweet and sour. Needs to breathe for full enjoyment. Try it with a tiny splash of grenadine if it's too sour. Overall this one could be the better flemmish red but Roddenbach has the name and longevity. A must try for beer connoisseurs.

awful beer. Didn´t like this at all!
Taste is very sweet, taste like it has a lot of fruit-syrup in it. And at the same time sour.

this is my favorite beer... tastes more like fine wine than beer, fruity, tart yet sweet and flavorful. warning - must be chilled properly to avoid nasty nasal "smelling salts" aftertaste but if properly chilled the aftertaste doesn’t show up and it’s just wonderful.

Enjoyed this on tap at the Columbus Underground happy hour at Details; excellent sweet and sour combination not on a Chinese food buffet

Very nice sour. This red shows brilliant copper-red, the foam fairly tenacious and clingy. Horsey notes amid caramel toasted malt, vanilla, cherry and malt vinegar in the nose. Fluffy and sweetish on the palate, the flavor also has some residual malt, somespicy, nutty almond, vinous notes, reminiscent of port. The earthy and sour finish is rather subdued, and lingers very little. Well rounded and smooth!

Tart with a refreshing sweetness. The aroma is malty yet also sour. This beer leaves a warm taste on the tongue.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2006 Had this on tap. Nice sweet and sour candied fruit aromas. Pours a slightly hazy reddish-brown with a very fizzy head that was quickly diminishing, but left a decent amount of lacing. Nice and sour like a gueze with a good ripe fuity balance. Definitely a little balsamic vinegar in the back, which is more pronounced in the bottle version than this tap version. This has quickly become one of my favorite beers. If you know someone who won’t drink beer because they prefer wine, give them a taste of this.

Is the devil's brew? Pours a dark brown. The initial taste is of vinegar, but with an aroma of old wine. The flavor morphs into tart cherry, no, black cherry. What bizarre chemistry is going on here?
