25cl bottle at Alquitara. Rubi colour with a good formation of an off-white head with a good duration. Aroma is fruity, with apple notes, sourish. Flavour has apple notes with mild caraelish notes and candy sugar and wood. The final is fruity and dry. Carbonation and body are medium.

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 (3810) - 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.

11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/brown with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel malts, some dark fruits, sweet tarts, and a little bit of oak and hops. Flavor the same, and itís much better than I remembered. Average texture. A decent beer of the style.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2012
UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Reviewed on 10.18.2012, transcribed from beer notes. Poured into a snifter glass. Pours a deep, ruby brown with two fingers of head that slowly dissipates into a thin cap. Mild lacing. Smells tart with fruity notes. Flavor opens with the expected lactic tartness, fading into strong fruity notes. Almost hints of cherry. Very clean and dry finish, leaving you ready for the next sip. Perfect balance of flavor and sour. One of my all time favorites.

Iíd like to think that the time and place Iím drinking beer doesnít affect my reviews, and that everything is completely subjective... but Iíll 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 Iím 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 (!)

Torrefacto (1424) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2014
Color rojizo/caoba limpio con espuma beige, Aroma intenso de frutos rojos y, ligeramente, levadura. Cuerpo medio-bajo, Inicio dulce afrutado con una acidez muy sutil, el final es bastante seco, sobre todo en el regusto. Muy rica.

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