On tap at BBF. Golden colour without head. Fruity aroma. Sweet, fruity and wine taste. Light to medium body. mike_77 (7232) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2017
Dark blond colour with lasting head. Aroma is very strong with sharp white wine. Tart and slightly funky. mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2017
Pours a a clear golden with a small white head that leaves pretty nice lacing. Nose is of red wine, oak with some trace acetone. The more I smell, the more it gets vinegary, better get to the taste already! Taste is pretty dry and winey again with some breakfast cereals in the finish. Never boozy. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderate. Vinous it goes (almost) without saying. I remember digging this one quite a bit back in 2012 but either the recipe or my palate changed since then. Still a pretty good wine BA strong ale but I can now name quite a few I prefer over this one!

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2017 New rating:
Retasted this product after my bad experience, a lot more satisfying. Still a lot of acetic acid, but it is smoother than the last experience. Red wine forward, can’t taste the booze at all, sourish cereals, vinegary side.
Bottle, with new label. Hazy orange with reddish color, small head foam, that disappears after some time. Very effervescent. I can’t smell anything but nail polish sourness. I can’t find any subtle aromas or tasting notes, I could smell some sour fruits, vinegar, nail polish. Way too much acetic acid inside, it seems like the bottle was oxydated? Acetobacter worked like crazy? and the barrel wasn’t fill up with enough beer? During bottling? I don’t know but I’m totally not satisfied by this bottle. I’ll try to get another one so I can update this poor score. Arcanor (422) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2016
330ml bottle, bottled on 2013-07. Aged almost 3 years. Pour light copper with a tall crispy head that fadeout quickly champagne style. Dry raisin, citrus, oak and notes of red wine. Medium sweetness, a bit astringent like a a wine. Nice fruit taste can be perceived. Nice balance of alcool, wood and vinous taste at the end. I was septic at first, so I left this bottle on the shelf for a long time. But now, I have to find a new bottle to compare. Stoned99 (1703) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2015
500ml bottle from Bières et Délices. July 2015 bottle. 8%. Aroma: sour cherries, orange blood, green apples. App: hazy golden, small white head, creamy on the sides and middle. Awesome thick lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, fruity, medium high carbonation, vinous, medium sweetness, light acidity finish. Overall: great! We can taste the Belgian signature but aged in red wine barrels which give it a nice vinous touch. Really liked it. Maybe would have liked a bit less carbonation which prevents us from detecting every goodness in this beer but still, this is awesome. Great job BW!
