3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 25cl (BB 04/2006)
Dark red cherry color, brown small head, sour fruity aroma of vinegar. Flavor is sour cherries, raw grapefruits and dry apple cider. Light to medium bodied. Finish is sweet apples and fruits and lambic sourness with rubbery tones. First this had maybe too unique palate to enjoy but after few sips this turns to be interesting and complex.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2014 Bottle at KØ07. Nice woody and sour aroma. The flavour is nicely sour, yoghurty, with a little earth and wood. Quite sweet. Slightly cleansing. Very nice, although on the sweet side. 7 3 8 3 18
Bottle, 6.2%. Acetic and vinegary aroma - mouthwatering. Clear brown colour. Small stable light brown head. The flavour is sweet at first, but turns nicely acidic. Like my original rating, I must sayt it is a bit sweet. 8 3 7 3 16

Verhalten fruchtiger Antrunk, ausgewogen süß-sauer. Zum Mittelteil überwiegt die Säuerlichkeit, man merkt eine deutliche Süßung. Auch die Lagerung in Eichenfässern macht sich im Geschmack bemerkbar, zum Ende hin daher holzig, prickelnd, weiter fruchtig nach schwarzen Johannisbeeren und etwas nach Kirsche. Etwas bitter.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The pour is a dark, rich, red color without too much carbonation or head formation.
S: Loads of dark fruit, specifically sour cherries and currants. There is a nice lactic sourness along with a mild vinegar aroma.
T: Almost identical to the nose. A wonderful tart/sourness, but not overpowering. The cherries really come through here as well as a touch of sweet malt.
M: Medium bodied with a high level of carbonation and a crisp, dry finish.
D: I’m still getting used to these sour ales and this is a great one to start on. Nothing overly intense about it, but a nice beer nonetheless.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2005 Well-named, as its burgundy colour would indicate. Mix of woody lactic notes, tomato, pomegranate, apple skins and acetic notes. Sweet maltiness in the palate, alongside icing sugar, caramel apples, and a light acetic note which spoils an otherwise clean lactic undertone. Sweet & sour, quite drinkable, but I do find the acetic notes to be rather off-putting. You have to love acetic acid (vinegar) to love this beer. If you don’t, it’ll go down the drain.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BB 31/03/05. Aroma of cherry? or berry? Dark ruby color with halogen back light. Virtually no head. Starts sweet, then there is some sour, followed by an earthy oakiness. Medium mouthfeel that thins as the sour comes out. The sour may have matured away somewhat, as it is not so sour as I recall. As is, it is very pleasant and drinkable. An interesting and tasty drink. It has acquired some aspects of a red wine.

Draft at Dilly Deli. Pours a reddish brown color with a moderate creamy head that was lasting. Heavy fruity aroma. Medium to full body with sour texture. Very good complex fruity flavor with a long slightly sour finish. Very interesting brew.
