Pours clear reddish brown colour with a huge most good lasting beige head. Aroma of dark malt, red fruits, some wood. Taste of red berries, dark malt, some grapes, too sweet for me...
Thanks to erzengel for sharing! Pours a medium brown with a rich tan head. The smell is toasted malt, dark fruity sour notes. The taste is similar to an oude bruin, rich fruit and mild vinegar sourness. Light in body with average carbonation. Very drinkable! Erzengel (8768) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2016
75cl Zwarte Ruiter, matured 1 year on wood. Sour fresh nose. The beer starts smooth and sourish. Easy to drink, the wood and the great winey sourness is there, very refreshing with not too much sweetness. Red winey hints, caramel and malts in the body, smooth sourness. The aftertaste is woody sour, intense and refreshing, quite deep for that low ABV, nice stuff! DwarfeD (3513) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2016
75cl bottle shared at home; as Zwarte Ruiter Mestreechs Aajt. Hazy dark amber with a medium off-white head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Heavy sweetness with medium sour aftertaste. Raisin, sour berries, oak, vinegar and herbs. Quite nice (I expected less).
