I used to be a big fan of this beer....until I had a true Belgian Lambic-Geueze. Its not a bad beer, its just the sweetness at the end, gives me this vomit-y taste. Refreshing and sharp. Still I prefer only its sourness.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2003 Re rate: The beer is better tonight. It has a nice winey, oaky, blackcurrantish aroma. A bit tart but still sweet. The metallic taste is gone. Hurray! Reddish brown. Big cherry nose, a bit spicy. Cherry, a bit sour and then a metallic taste. this could be a good beer if it wasn't for its finish. I'll have to try it later on to see if this one was from a bad batch.

Nose is very sweet, vinuous. I thought it was just too sweet and lacked a complexity I enjoyed in the Rodenbach Grand Cru.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 appeared bloody with moldy scabs..vinegar acid rain and cherry sweat aromas..overripe cherries gangbanged by mysterious chocolate...tart sour lambic-like finishUnique...I Really liked this one Re-Rate 1/18/03: the aroma showed a lot more vinegar than last time..there was a tad metallicness in the taste, and there was much too much vinegar noticed in the flavor too..i couldn't have missed this much vinegar the first time..i think that there's some inconsistency with this beer Re-Rate Draught: The vinegar, the god damned vinegar. other than that, nice tart grape flavor with some mild sweetness, mildew, and a vinous finish and aftertaste.
