still not a big fan of the style, but this is a decent beer i guess. Pours a clear watery red with a tiny white head. Sweeter than I expected, still has that barn yard funk that I’m not a big fan of. I like this better than a gueze but will not be making a major effort to try this style again.

355ml bottle, corked and capped. Pours a deep, dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma is sour, yeasty, tart cherry. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is a nice balance of sweet and sour, A little sour cherry, sugar, fruity. Interesting.

Bottle. Pours a brown sugar brown with a one inch head. Smells strongly of sour yeasts. Taste is sweet. Medium carbonation and light body. Tastes a lot like Duchesse De Bourgenne without the malt vinegar intensity.

The pour is a bright yellowish - orange with a finger of the purest white head I’ve ever seen on a beer. The head subsides to a thin cap slowly. The nose is sweet and mildly sour with a candied sugar note and light malts. Thorough sweetness with mild sourness and fruity finish. Medium bodied with a oil like moutyhfeel. Overall, a nice sour beer, but a bit too sweet perhaps.

My bottle (250ml) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus. Pours a deep orange-amber with a small diminishing bubbly off-white head. Nice aroma, quite fruity and a bit sour along with some sugary sweetness. Flavour is surprisingly fruity and a bit sour along with a slightly tart finish -- lovely really. Average bodied. I really enjoyed this, quite nice on a warm Summer day.

375ml bottle at 4.2%. Pours dark caramel with a small head. Aroma is sweet vinegar and some woody notes. Not over the top. Taste has sour lemons to start, then strong candy sugars and a sweet vinegar finish. Some Sharp lemon on the aftertaste.
