1.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Dark brown beer with a small head. Strong aroma...smell of wine. Is this wine? Clearly, you can taste wine...fruity beer. Since I don’t like wine and find this beer too sour...I decided to throw it in the sink. I’m soooooo disapointed knowing that this beer comes from my second best beer producer country, Belgium...we should read strong wine on the bottle, not strong beer.

Wow, what a disappointment. Has a nice color to it, dark red. Everything else is horrible. The beer is so acidic and sour thats its almost undrinkable. The aftertaste was absolutely unbarable.

On tap. Dark red color with a thin head. It smells of musty old barnyard, and it put my gueuze defenses up. Lots of sour but with an almost cherry sweetness to balance it. Still too pungent for me to enjoy. And not just unenjoyable but undrinkable. I'll beat my palate into liking this before that gueuze crap, though.

Footy nose with hints of fruit. Reminiscent of a lambic. Tart and sour flavor. A lambic without the fruit, perhaps. Complex flavors that went way too sour for my taste.

Mtl beer fest. Ok, so I could see how people would love this, but not me. Flavour was dominantly sour, way to sour for me. Cource, I dont like sour beer. Might be great for you, not so great for me. Cheers

Oh my God did I hate this beer. It just tastes sour and way too sweet which made me look at the back of the bottle for the expiration date. I don’t understand how its rated so highly on this site. I assume the fact that it is quite unique in its flavor that has put it in such high regard, but I think it’s just gross. And I knew from looking at the beer in the bottle that it wasn’t going to have much of a head, which, if you do manage to get, disappears very quickly. Overall this beer is not for me, not in the slightest bit. I guess I’m glad I tried it though, as it is very different, so I would recommend that you do the same if you are afforded the opportunity, you’re opinion of this beer might differ from mine.

Smells like strong old malt vinegar. Call it a wine-beer, fruity aftertaste with hints of apple and raisin. Would not buy again. Had at Holden with my father.

Not sure about the other rave reviews. If you want something very different borderline chemical give this a try. Pours deep brown red. My wife agreed this stuff smells like acetone. I tried to finish the glass, but it felt like it was unhealthy to consume. This beer was part of 50 beers I just brought back from Belgium and this thing was the loser of the bunch.
