Red-brownish color. Great ballanced between sourness and sweetness - hints of berries - maybe cherries. Easy drinkable beer, too sweet/sour for me.

TtV (381) - 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!

Is the devil's brew? Pours a dark brown. The initial taste is of vinegar, but with an aroma of old wine. The flavor morphs into tart cherry, no, black cherry. What bizarre chemistry is going on here? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scirtes (383) - POLAND - MAR 29, 2015
25 cl bottle, bb 12.06.2016. Ruby coloured, hazy, with beige head that stands for a long time and nice lacing. Fizzy carbonation caused gushing. Aroma is acidic, fruity, somewhat winy. Very sweet, with winy and woody notes. Interesting, but definitely too sweet.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - JUL 14, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2016 A brown/reddish beer with almost no head, leaving little lacing. Aroma of sour apples, cherries, prunes, balsamic vinegar, acetone. Medium to high sweetness and sourness. Average carbonation, medium body, slick to oily mouthfeel. Good but it would benefit from losing a bit of sweetness in my opinion.

theOptimator (360) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Aroma is sour cherry, toffee, berries, balsamic vinegar. Appearance is redish brown crystal clear with small head. Taste is light sour cherry with a sweet caramel malt backbone. Berries, balsamic vinegar, woody. Palate is medium light. A crisp beer but with a slickness that lingers. Carbonated well, champagne like. Overall a very nice beer. Unique in flavor, sweetness blends well with sourness. Well done.

Fruity, berry and brown sugar aroma. Dark red clear liquid, white-brown head. Well balanced high sweetness and sourness. Bitter-sweet finish, soft carbonation. One of the best in its style!

flying_pig (1382) - SCOTLAND - OCT 19, 2015
330ml bottle from Whole Foods Market, Giffnock, Scotland:
Quite a sour and tart beer but definitely not as strong in those departments as I’d been expecting when compared to some other Belgian sours that I’ve tried over the years. The nose in particular is quite a complex one with some good sweetness off the back of the fruits and a nice balance as well; a very nice beer and one well worth trying if you get the chance.
