UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 This was the first sour I tasted and I was really taken aback by the red wine finish (in a good way).

Klasyczny flanders. Ciemne, brazowe z rubinowymi akcentami. Aromat octowo winny. W tle ciemne owoce. Wisnie. W smaku gladkie rzeskie i sciagajace. Kwasne ale nie wyginajace.

bottle at home. First time trying this. On opening the beer I thought I could smell wooden barrels but couldn’t taste any of that. Has a red wine taste to it and a nice body and finish to the beer. Would definitely get a again.

Aroma is of cherry and raspberry, slight vinegar note. Appearance is ruby red with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Slight funk with red fruit flavours, vinegar again. Perfect carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Nice beer but can’t get over that vinegar note that just doesn’t do it for me.

Butelka 250ml. Aromat wiśniowy, owocowy, do tego wyraźne nuty drewna. Bardzo szlachetny i przyjemny. W smaku umiarkowanie kwaśne, wyraźna beczka, delikatnie ściągająca.

Barwa ciemno miedziana, piwo idealnie klarowne, piana jasno beżowa, niezbyt obfita. Intensywny, kwaśny aromat, niemal octowy, wyraźne nuty wiśni i czereśni. W smaku bardzo kwaśne, wiśniowe, trochę taniczne.

Pours a coke like body with almost no head. Faint aroma of vinaeger. Taste is malty sour with a rather good balance.

syrlig og meget speciel. Smager lidt af shampoo. Et hit hos mange, men ikke mig..

330ml bottle from LCBO. Pours an average size foamy bubbly tan head that stays a bit, but then dissipates to a very thin layer. Has a deep dark amber appearance with ruby highlights. Weak lacing. Excessive carbonation. Aromas dark fruit, plums. Flavours are mostly dark and dry type fruits, raisins, plums. Has some sourness on the palate, quite immediate. Full bodied and fizzy mouthfeel.

3 mois avant DLC avec fromage cru des alpes et salées. Bière brune très foncee/rouge. Pas de mousse, carbo importante. 1er nez sur le vinaigre et le vinaigre de cidre ! Puis beaucoup plus complexe : mélange cerise, bois, vinaigre, floral bizarre genre rose. Complexité écoeurante : mon cerveau n’arrive pas à suivre ...! En bouche, acidité très présente, très complexe, sucrée, du fruit rouge, cerise, du bois et des fleurs à gogo. Mais trop bizarre... Si c’était pas une bière je ne l’aurais pas bue. Bref, j’ai pas aimé. Un peu adoucie par le fromage mais trop extrême et trop originale pour moi.
