Acid, Acid and more acid, no sugar, wine aroma, grappe and totally acid. Good I love this taste. Super kwaśne winno octowe piwo, ocet balsamiczny, trochę wisni, winogrona ciemne. Bardzo winne i bardzo minimalnie słodkie. Mala piana w dodatku opada szybko ale w końcu bliżej temu kwasnemu ale do wina niż do piwa czy Ale. Kolo leciutrko metny bordowo brązowy, choć osadu starego czarnego na dnie było sporo, nie dalo się wybeltac tego. To swiadczy o długim dojrzewaniu w butelce. Super zapach sfermentowane domowe wino, jakby się nie udało lub zapach nieszczelnego słoika po latach z kompotem z wisni. Super Sour Red-Brown Flamandzki choć nie dla każdego bo widać to po niskich ocenach. Ale dla koneserow jak najbardziej.

I´ve only drunk this one once, in Westmalle many years ago. This one was in a champagne-bottle stored in the bar-cellars for 5 years. This was really a fantastic experience. What an explosion of tastes in the nose and palate.

Presentation: It was poured from a tap into a pint glass. Appearance: The body has a brownish or an old tarnished copper color that is nearly opaque. Near the sides of the glass there is a lot of visible carbonation streaming up to the top of the glass. This constant flow of tiny little bubbles helps to maintain a thick and foamy head, which is off white in color. Head retention is excellent and lacing is very good as well. Smell: The aroma has a tart and slightly sour fruity malty character with just a hint of citrus. Taste/Mouth feel: Its flavor is pleasantly tart with a good solid malty base that is in good balance to its fruity tartness. A mildly tart oak flavor also adds another layer of complexity. The texture is refreshing with a lively carbonation and solid medium body that is quite drinkable. Notes: Overall this was very enjoyable.

Draft at Max’s 72 Hours of Belgium. Poured a mahogany color with very little head and carbonation. Nicely acidic aroma with a medium body that tastes of brown sugar and apples. A bit of Belgian funkiness at the end. Rounded flavor. Good sour.

Oh yes! The sweet and sour aroma is a treat in itself and then whent the taste kicks in, your in beer heaven. This might be a tad special for the unprepared, but when you delve into it, you’l find berries, red fruit, and dark joy. It’s not a fruit beer, but it is very fruity. Go ahead and buy it.

Dark brown with a red tint and a thick lasting tan frothy head. Smells of vinigar, malt, berry, caramel and dry oak. Medium oily frothy body. Sourness lingers. Starts sweet with vinigar, kiwi, very ripe fruit, plum. More sweet than sour, wood and sour cherry. Very good and complex but sour.

Aroma has funky sour things going up my nose. Maybe I am crazy but I smell an acidic stone ground mustard thing going on. Freaky impresive aroma. Some wood and berries. Nice complex beer. The only knock is it is too sweet but the other notes push back on the sweetness. Thin and prickly. Basalmic vinegar. I really enjoyed it.
