Sweet merciful crap, this one is chock-full of flavors. Winey, irony, sour as all hell, and a fresh cherry essence cutting through it all. An unquestioned classic that is being discontinued, much to the chagrin of beer lovers the world over. Bov (13442) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2001
intense ruby colour, aroma: complex, cherry, acid apple; flavor: great sourness, vinegar, apple - a truly unique beer ! lockman (29) - Somers Point, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2000
Unfortunately not made anymore, but I have some stash left. Love the wonderful color and the sour finish. Definitely a loss to the beer world wade (59) - Decatur, Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2000
Excellent red ale. Flavor is much more intense than aroma. Not much head, and pretty cloudy. BudMan (17) - Kennesaw, Georgia, USA - SEP 22, 2000
very smooth, sweet after-taste, overall, very good..........................

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 My first serious rate: Vintage 2000. For the last batch of this, some bottles made it to Ontario. Word of its demise was already out by the time it hit the shelves, so I stocked up as much as my broke ass could. In September 2008 I sampled my last bottle with Beershine and Kimchee. It was quite sweet up front, but got drier as it progressed through a rich cherryish body towards a lingering tart finish that eventually grips the throat. It’s got a deep rodenbachy aroma with abundant cherry still, even after 8 years. The body is starting to show a bit of thinness - it’s an old age for such a light beer. But otherwise, this is still going strong, the sense of balance undisturbed and the quality still evident. RIP Alexander.
