bierbeek (97) - Beek, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2013
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

Inget jag dricker mycket av då jag har lite svårt för körsbärssmaken. Väldigt syrlig. Sötman tar dock ut lite av ekfatskaraktären, hade varit trevligare om den fick vara lite mer framträdande.

330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Tiny off-white head which vanishes almost immediately. Dark red body. Aroma of vinegar and apple cider. Quite sour, and also sweet at the same time. Dry down the throat, which suits the style well.

A solid cheaper version of a sour brew. Tonight I tried 3 of them (including the $35 The Bruery). Now I’m done with these sour brews.

Poured a dark reddish brown. This is my first sour beer and was very suprising with just how sour it is. Very rich flavor that is very sour with a sweet aftertaste kinda like a sweet vinegar. Maybe candy flavors in there too. medium sourness,

C est pétillant et frais avec des saveurs de raisins qui laissent place au caramel... C est moyenâgeux et enchanteur ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very different from other Fruit derived beer. Sweet fruity aroma with a taste of sour foremost followed by a bit of sweetness. Appearance best described as a tan frothy head on a redish brown cola colored liquid. It was very different yet very enjoyable. Recommend to people who prefer red wine over beer.
