Fruit, especially cherry in the aroma. Flavors starts sweet and finishes sour, with some vanilla and cherry cough medicine flavors. Not my favorite style, but this is pretty good.

mile (3714) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, vinous and sweetish aroma, fruitiness - dark fruits, some sourness and light vanilla/oak. Body is medium, vinous and sweetish flavor, fruitiness - dark fruits, some sourness. Finish is average, vinous and lightly sweetish, dark fruits and some vinegar sourness, faint oak. Really nice sour ale although quite sweet. Sourness goes well along the body and sweetness.

UDBeernut (2472) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2012
deep amber with ruby edges capped by an ample off white head with great retention. Nose is tart and has a essense of horsehair. Taste begins with vinegar, burnt sugar, lemon, and brett. light body, but not watery. Aight.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2012 Bottle @ Vlaamsch Reus
Clear red brown, nice beige head. Funky dusty aroma. Taste is medium sour and sweet, little dust. Refreshing, easy to drink. Good mouth feel and carbonation.

I’d like to think that the time and place I’m drinking beer doesn’t affect my reviews, and that everything is completely subjective... but I’ll be honest with you, I had this after my first Orval, and as a result this felt like it was "trying to hard". Having said that... feels like I’m biting into a tart fruit like passionfruit or rambutan more specifically. Definitely need to give this another try. Aftertaste is a bit of vinegar... but in the good way (!)

mandaritto (161) - LATVIA - AUG 14, 2014
Red-brownish color. Great ballanced between sourness and sweetness - hints of berries - maybe cherries. Easy drinkable beer, too sweet/sour for me.

TtV (362) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle 25cl. Red, almost brown with almost no top. Sour, fruity aroma. Taste has lots of fruits. Sweetness and sourness take turns. Good one!

dnicolaescu (1623) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 24, 2014
BOTTLE 25 CL from dcmchew. Mild and delicate, lightly acetic with mild balsamic vinegar notes and a tad too sweet. Tart fruity sweetness (cherry?), some old malts.

Koskela (464) - Marysville, California, USA - JAN 10, 2015
A very sweet and malty aroma with a hint of tartness come from this deep ruby red brew with a light brown head. Tart with a bit of underlying sweetness come with this medium bodied brew with big carb bubbles.

Barwa głębokiej czerwieni, wiśniowy, klarowny, piana niska, sycząca, dość szybko znika niemalże do zera. Zdecydowany aromat przypomina czerwone wino wytrawne, ocet winny, porzeczki, wiśnie, dzika róża, ciemni winogrono, gdzieś w głębi nuty beczkowe, stare drewno, lekka wanilia. W smaku najpierw czuć dość wysokie nagazowanie, spod którego nasze kubki smakowe atakuje na przemian owocowa kwaśność i słodkość, z przewagą tej pierwszej... Jest to bardzo intensywne i nieoczekiwane z uwagi na wybitnie kwaśny zapach. Dalej dochodzi też ziołowość, dzikość trawiasto-stajenna, masa czerwonych przejrzałych i niedojrzałych owoców i przyjemne rozgrzewanie delikatnego alkoholu, zupełnie niewyczuwalnego w smaku. Goryczka na minimalnym poziomie, raczej kwiatowa niż chmielowa. W posmaku pozostaje przez chwile cierpkość i kwaskowość szlachetnego octu balsamicznego.
