BlazerT (1052) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Bottle. Sensoric. Brown, medium hazy with small, dirty white head. Good Head retention and poor lacing. Aroma with quite strong acetone, vinegar accents, moderate oaky character. Moderately fruity (apple), woody and citric. Taste is sweet (thats nice and surprising), later one semi-dry and finally lightly bitter and sour. For that ABV highly drinkable, just a slight warming (or maybe this is subjective). In summary really complex beer, youll find here everything - sweet, sour, dry, bitter, oaky, maltiness, some fruity character. Everything perfectly balanced. Outstanding.

jelledebont (123) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2016 Dit lijkt meer op een goede wijn dan op wat ik me in eerste instantie bij bier voorstel. Echt heel erg lekker! Ik heb de 2013-versie op.

Korcz (3133) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 3, 2016
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. 2005 vintage. Rewelacyjny, niesamowicie zbalansowany i ułożony, kwaśny Belgian Strong Ale. Wybitne piwo.

matzou (185) - SPAIN - NOV 13, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2016 Big smell of plum! Cask smell ? Amazing! Appearance is brownish with a lot of undesirable things floating around like some cork particles in a bad wine. Taste of passed fruits salads very sour but a good sourness masking the abv of this beer. Iam a bit confused about the sourness as it is too much or not?! But for a first try at sour beer it is definitely amazing.

Bule (2118) - California, USA - NOV 5, 2016
12oz bottle of 2007 release. Pours a dark reddy brown color. Sour aroma. Delicious delicate sour red ale. Some cherry and plum flavor.

mariuspoenari (2555) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Murky, semi-opaque brown pour with a tan head. Huge notes of red grapes, grape vinegar, grape skin, vanilla, sherry, dried fruit. Medium to full body, medium carbonation and a sour, somewhat acidic finish.

sjogro (3766) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2016
Shared from bottle thanks to Maakun! Clear red brown with no head. Almost no smell. Red grapes, prunes, goji berries, wine, light balsamico. Light sweet and bitter and about medium sour. Under medium body, almost no carbonation, bit dry feel.

Maakun (5183) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2016
Bottle shared. Clear teak with short lasting beige head. Sweet cherries, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, oak, hay, acetone, dried herbs, quite some red wines with dry oak tannins, lots of oxidized fruit juices and sherry, dead leaves. Almost medium sweet and sour with lasting alcoholic and herbal bitterness. Over medium bodied. Great beer, but maybe a bit too much acetone for me. Doesnt feel like 13% at all.
