UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 Bottle. Pours rich and full of plumb-red goodness. Aroma is nutty strawberry. Nice lacing around the glass. Flavor is coppery cherry with a faint sweetness that includes a touch of cedar. Watery mouthfeel. Fair, but not worth the price.

Bottle, pours a deep mahogany with a nice small tan head. Aromas are cherries and spice, tasted the same with some malt notes in the background, finishing sour with a lingering finish.

Niet echt mijn favoriet, een smaak dat mij niet erg bevalt, alhoewel dat er wel veel liefhebbers zullen zijn voor dit bier

Pours a dark amber ith a think beige head and thin lacing. Aroma and flavor are full of vinegar and sour fruit. Perhaps I just don't care for the style.

Hmmmmm. Dark ruby with a thin white big bubbly head that is quickly discipating. Th nose is very red wineish with grape skin and vinegar. The taste is sour and acidic and bitter lots of vinegar. The body is tingly and sparkeling. I understand where they are going here buyt I just dont like it and on top of that it is NOT very easily drinkable=major deductions from me.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev. Pours a clear reddish-brown with a small tan head. Aroma is very sour with some sweetness added. Flavour is also sour with some green apple and citrus but it’s the sugary malt sweetness of it that I didn’t particularly care for -- it just wasn’t my thing. I also found the palate quite harsh and I didn’t like the aftertaste. This one’s not for me.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2005
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Nov 06). This had some really nice flavours and aromas going on - oak, soft fruit, vinous a hint of malt with a small level of tartness. I just couldnt get past the sweet finish which combined with high carbonation and tartness had an almost artificial sherbert feel. I wanted to like this but couldnt.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2009
Dark cola like hue with a light brown creamy head. Vinegar and banana aroma. Tropical fruit flavours with a lingering sour backbone. Not really my type of beer, just too sour.

Pours copper with a nice, light brown head. Aroma shows raspberry, balsamic vinegar and oak. Palate has sweet malt that brings berries before the oak kicks into gear and delivers a dry, salty mustiness to it. Finishes with chalky, slightly tart acidity.
