Info: 250ml bottle, 2/10-2006, 156/300 beastiefan2k (4008) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Pours a surprisingly murky, thick, dark purplish brown with a small head. Surprised because this looks unfiltered, no clarity at all. Aroma is very cherry and purple-grape skins. There are some light hints of aceto. Taste is tannins and cherry/grape skins. Light acidity tickles the cheeks and very easy drinking. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2008
25cL bottle with no date from Beer Planet in a Cantillon tulip-like wine glass.
Bottle provided by Yngwie, thanks mate! Small greyish head. Reddish brown to ruby color. Weak aroma of acidic red fruits. Whiffs of wood and mould. Not very flavorful; some fruity sweetness at first, leading to a watered down, acidic-sour flavor. Light-bodied. Watery texture. Short fruity-acidic finish. Decent, but lacks some strenght.

Bottled. Strange raisin aroma, with plum and strawberry. Dark brown, thick beige head. Taste fantastic - lemon, raisins, lime, with a half-bitter finish. leaparsons (10613) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2008

250ml bottle, courtesy of Yngwie. Bubbly, beige one-finger foam over a brown body with see-through haze. Vinous aroma with notes of cherries. The flavour profile is mostly on smooth, acidulous fruits added underlying yeasty sweetness. Medum palate. Rather pleasant beverage - enjoyed as apéritif before dinner (19.04.2008). fonefan (49601) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 19, 2008

Dark ruby brown beer with a small tan head. Wooden fruity aroma promising some Flemish goodness. Rather sweet but with the right sour twang and cherry on top :)
A solid if not spectacular example of the style. Fin (10622) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2008
Bottle picked up from Dranken Geers, Gent, Belgium A nice soft fizziness leads to a sweet/sour fruity slightly woody tasting beer. This actually tastes quite like a soft drink, but its ok tingles on the tongue and the sourness is fine but the sweetness does occasionally tatse just a tad sacchriney sometimes, pours reddish brown with tiniest of heads. yespr (45930) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2008
25 cL bottle. Pours dark amber with a brown hue. Lacing tan head. Light woody and mild acidic aroma, has notes of berries and yeast. Sourish flavour with a distinct berry sweet note. Mild brett and woody finish with an acidic berry flavour lingering into the finish.
