Red brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma of green apples, cherry, vinegar, red wine, wood and raisins. Taste is heavy acidic, mild sweet and mild bitter with a long lasting finish.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2009 ~ Purchased this bottle from Big Z Beverage in Huntington, NY. This sour ale pours a dark reddish brown with a huge foamy head that subsides rather quickly into some spotty lacing. The smell reminds me a lot of balsamic vinegar. There is a really nice sour and earthy smell going on here. The taste is a wonderful complex combination of sweet and sour. Absolutely refreshing! A little pricey @ $4.95 for a single 11.2 oz bottle, but hey, you get what you pay for right?
All in all, if you’re looking for a beer that’s unique and different—you’ve come to the right place! ~

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.

Beautiful red brown colour with beige head. Smells sweet and sour, but also a bit like sweaty socks (geuze).
Sweet and fruity yet sour and refreshing. Vivid, light body. Spicy/wild geuze finish. A great beer.

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

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.

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
