I think perhaps I’m being unfair and giving this beer too low of a rating because this just isn’t my style. I can see the quality put into it, and it is fairly complex, but seems much to harsh and yet insipid for my taste. It’s a bit vinegary both in aroma and in taste. It seems very dry, and astringent even.
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2017 Tap at brewski. Had to have a second. Sours don’t get much better. Light funk, sour, dark fruits light, refreshing, tart and bloody delicious. ANZUShophunter (472) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2017 On tap at Brewski. Cherry red hue with aroma of strawberry and oak. Taste is a tart version of a good sparkling rose’. A nice palate cleanser. TimE (5954) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2017
Deep purple nose. Very musky nose with cobwebs, oak, Vinous . Very sour, tons of cobwebs, leather, vinous, so balanced. Oak, cobwebs and leather linger with faint hints of red grapes. Amazing MelvinKalksma (1579) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 Aroma: 8
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, red fruit, grapes, tart and brettanomyces.
Opaque red/purple beer with a slight pink head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, wood, red fruit and grapes; ends slightly bitter, dry and sour with tart and brettanomyces.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. That is a lot of brettanomyces, as is to be expected of this brewery. Great wood and grape flavour, definitely matching that finish. Perfect appearance and a great aroma and palate as well. jedrol (93) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - AUG 10, 2017

Bottle. Pours dark cloudy ruby. Aroma is light grapes, funk, cherry. Body is medium, quite sour and pretty tart, but with nice grapes, slightly vineous in good harmony. Palate is dry but fruity. Good! thepatrickman (1367) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2017
Bottle, courtesy of jamesy (cheers, buddy!). This is a great, curious bottle of beer. It’s earthy and a little bitter, with quite a bit more tannin bite than Cantillon’s lighter offerings. Moravius (1332) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2017
Flasche (75 cl, abgefüllt 2012). - Trübes Rubinrot. - Krachtrocken und doch rund mit holzig-trockener roter Traube, Anklängen an Himbeere und Bittermandel und gediegener Lambic-Herbe. Sehr trockene aber nicht übertriebene schlank-herbfruchtige Säure. Sehr tiefgründig wie ein guter Rotwein, dabei prickelnd rezent und enorm erfrischend. Kernige aber elegante Tannine. - Weder Bier noch Wein aber auf seine Weise völlig überzeugend.
