Not my favorite of the sour ales. Nose is a little too funky, even for this style... almost moldy. I tried a few bottles of varying sizes that all I had this problem. The usual sour, tart notes are there. But there is an underlying almost creaminess that dulls out all of the tart, floral flavors and really just ruins the beer for me.

Geur van verschraald bier, fris zurig in de mond met ondertoon van eikenhout met eenzelfde frisse nasmaak.

On Tap at Sunset Grill in Allston MA, Aroma is of sweet cherries. Color is dark brown with thick white head and light carbonation. Thick on the tongue and very sweet. Kind of like a cherry syrup. It was yummy. Tasted with AirforceHops.

Mahogany clear with a light taupe head of many, massive bubbles that leaves a full ring. Sour and damp must aroma. Slight cherry. Flavor of old red fruit. Dry finish but a surprising medium-full mouthfeel only in the mid-palate. Lots if carbonation up front.

Cidery aroma with other interesting smells that I can’t identify. Thick glossy head. Sweet, cidery, interesting flavor that lingers on the back of the tounge.

Pours a dark red color with very small amount of head. It is both sweet and sour with aromas of brandy as well as a strange taste of marinated meat in worcestershire sauce.

Hazy deep red-brown. Strong nose of sour, vinegary cherry and apple. Palate is strong, very tart/sour cherry and apple. Lingering sour finish. A style that takes a few sips to get used to, but eventually becomes quite tasty.

Pours a reddish colour with a full white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Different kind of beer and a good one.

33cl bottle. Dark red brown colour. Big beige head, dissemininates quickly. Aroma of cherries and vinegar. Taste is sweet in the beginning: cherries, old coffee, caramel, sugar and tofee. Finish is sour, vinegar, not tart. Light body. It surprises me in a positive way. A little bit like a Rodenbach
