Sour-ish, slightly balsamic vinegary aroma with some brown sugar and white grape accents. Hazy reddish brown under a thin, off-white cover. The flavour is a delicate balance of sweet and sour balsamic vinegar and butterscotch/vanilla oak with vinous notes. Sweet, but clean finish and no betrayal of the somewhat elevated alcohol content. Medium carbonation. MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010

Pours a brown haze with a hint of red. Caramel colored soapy head. Has an aroma of caramel, vinegar, and malts. Has a great taste. A slight sweetness on the front of the tongue, and then you get the sour in the middle with a creamy maltiness along the way through the finish. Really taste flemish sour. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2010

nose has hints of cherry, apple and red wine. Taste is a bit raisiny but a little thin. It has a tartness up front that mellows into a sweetness but finishes kinda clean. I get some cherry nuances. Doesn’t have all the complexity of the great flemish ales but it is very good. SamGamgee (2585) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 4, 2010
33cl bottle. Dark red-brown with a thick head. Touch of brett and bright, sour fruit in the nose. A touch of charred wood and dark malt as well. The flavor has a nice sourness and fruit character but finishes a little too sweet. Medium bodied. Almost like sour candy with a restrained sweetness, but not quite sour enough. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2010
Pours a dark reddish brown color. Aromas of dark fruit, yeast, and a touch of wood. Flavor is tart, yeast, wood, not as sour as I would like. Kinda Blah. Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2010
Draft at redlight redlight. Pours a bright amber with thick white head and nice lace. Great funky nose with hints of leather, pears, and other fruit. The flavor isn’t overly sour, but still very tart. Hints of a malty sweetness as well. Pretty mellow for a sour, but very enjoyable. Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 26, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2010 Pours a brown/red with a thin, fizzy head. Aroma almost like fruity wine: tart fruits, notes of sourness & alcohol. Taste: Tart & sour fruits, mildly sweet... could not taste any alcohol. Decent finish. Body was a little thin. Medium/mild carbonation... but a little flat somehow. Overall: good but nowhere near great... almost like they had a very good beer, but then lost it.
