Pyrmir (6079) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2015
330 ml bottle during Brussels vacation, at Deliciés. Reddish brown with off white head. Aroma is sweet and sour, acidity, vinegar and red berries. Taste is nicely balanced, sweet, sour, lots of vinegar, lactic acid, some malt notes and red berries. Really nice beer, reminds me of Duchesse de Borgogne but not as cloyingly sweet.

Horecabeurs Pours clear copperbrown , OK white head . Smell is bit sweet , bit metallic funky sourness . Taste is fleshy , sour-sweet . A lot like duchesse de bourgogne ( noted down even before I knew this one was brewed by Verhaeghe .. is this a secret alias ??? ) , fruity and full .

Lele (556) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 20, 2016
ASPETTO: marrone mogano limpido con bellissimi riflessi granata. Schiuma marroncino/rosa, abbastanza abbondante, fine e non particolarmente persistente. AROMA: acetoso, che stimola l’appetito, frutti rossi. Aroma intenso. GUSTO: sentori acetosi, di aceto balsamico. Abbondanti frutti rossi (soprattutto lampone e ciliegia). Agrodolce stupendo. La birra scivola benissimo e chiama subito un’altra bevuta. Bevuta davvero soddisfacente!

Beautiful color, dark mahogany with red sparkles; small creamy head. The aroma is fruity, moderately sour, creamy, and there is some vinous wood too. Good mouthfeel quite round, as it still has some pleasant sweetness; malt flavor corrected by the typical Verhaeghe winey sour and fruity touch. The bitterness is quite low, and the final medium short. Complex and beautifully aged.

Clean dark amber color; creamy head. Original aroma: malt, sourness, cherries, toffee, caramel, cookies… Smooth, sweet and lightly sour, very similar to Duchesse de Bourgogne (therefore good!). Dangerously drinkable!

janubio (852) - SPAIN - SEP 27, 2006
Dark red colour, it pours a nice brown creamy foam that last for a while. Nose of acid apples, coriander, fennel. Spicy. Taste is very acid, but pleasant, refreshing. Fruity, with apples and most of all cherries. It makes you ask for another.

Beer5000 (6483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2007
Bottle. Beautiful red/brown body with a beige head. Aroma has a certain cellar character with well-matured sweet cherry, just delicious. Flavor delivers most of the expectations from the aroma. Very harmonic balance between sweet and sour. The flavor is dominated by cherry, but in a matured way.

omhper (25093) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2007
Bottled (1998 vintage) at Man in the Moon, Stockholm. Clear dark ruby, minimal head. Lightly acidic cherry aroma. Fairly sweet with rounded gentle mouthfeel. Balsamic mouthfilling cherry flavour with some freshening acidity. Mild and creamy despite fairly light body and concentrated flavour. Superb! If it would lose some sweetness it would reach heaven!

Erasmus_ro (2945) - Alabama, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep, dark, ruby red with a large, smooth, beige head. Aroma is sour with vinegar, light caramel, cherry candy. Taste is semi-sweet and quite sour. Taste is cherry, caramel, cherry candy, some vinegar as well. Delicious. Palate is smooth, quite full, not much carbonation. Superbly delicious.

Grzesiek79 (4294) - Radom, POLAND - APR 27, 2013
Dobre. Uwielbiam ten styl. Kolebka regionalnej tradycji belgijskiej. Octowy i winny smak jak i zapach. chmielnego aromatu nie ma bo w tym gatunku to było by grzechem. Piekna bezowa i trwala piana czerwony odcien piwa. I ta lekka cierpkosc ze stosowna nuta slodyczy w tle. Debowy posmak takze jest.

Zarrach76 (268) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 15, 2016
Belle brune translucide avec une petite mousse bien beige qui persiste sur un millimètre. Le nez ne fait aucun doute : mûrie longuement en fût de chêne, ce qui lui donne cet arôme proche du vinaigre balsamique qu’on retrouve chez la Rodenbach Grand Cru ou la Bourgogne des Flandres. On sent de bonnes odeurs maltées, un poil d’agrumes, mais l’arôme dominant masque vraiment le reste. Cependant, on ressent une certaine complexité et une certaine élégance. Carbonatation moyenne, texture souple, pas de sécheresse. L’amertume est légère, on a une saveur aigre-douce assez conséquente, contrebalancée par les sucres, bien dosés. Beaux arômes de poire, de prune, de pomme verte acidulée, de cidre, de vin pétillant... Longueur assez bonne avec l’aigre-doux qui reste au fond de la gorge. L’alcool est vraiment discret et s’intègre parfaitement au reste. Du très bel ouvrage pour les amateurs de "vieilles brunes" qui aiment déjà les bières sus-citées, ou qui devraient impérativement les découvrir !. Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.
