UPDATED: JAN 7, 2012 On tap. Pours clear deep red with a beige head. Aroma is sweet ripe fruits, alot of plum coming through along with strawberry jam, oak, balsamic, sweet malts, champagne, sweet malts, dark sweet cherry and some figs. Taste is like sweet champagne, oak, sweet cherry, rather dry, some jam, figs and some candy sweetness to it.

25 cl bottle @ home. Pours brown red with a thin beige head. Aroma of red wine vinager with cherries, but in a good way. Taste is sour ofcourse but also fruity; cherries and grapes. Nice lively carbonation. Overall a very pleasant sour ale.

Bottle. Medium brown with reddish highlights, lasting head and nice lacing. Smells fresh and a little sweet tart. Hits sweet then you get a hint of sour. More sweet, though. Clean on the palate.

This beer is acquired taste, I think. It’s definitely unlike any other beer, but I’m not on the bandwagon yet. Tastes of sweet brandy, red meat, and yeast mixed together. Sour finish. Small head.

cnardi (24) - ITALY - MAR 27, 2012
Nel bicchiere si presenta di un rosso scuro ma con bei riflessi rubino. La schiuma, color nocciola, è abbastanza persistente. L’olfatto è tipico di una birra di questo stile: l’acetico subito su tutto. Poi ciliegia, legno. Soprattutto molto "vinosa". Il finale è amaro e ritorna l’acetico.

Rating from memory at Republic Bar in Mpls. Taste is sweet and fruity but is balanced nicely with some good sourness. Berry and cherry notes. Love sour ales and this was a good one.

RoodMormel (49) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2012
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
