Kertakaikkiaan kiehtova olut. Tumma, kitker, kirsikka.. Hiivaa tuoksussa ja jlkimaku nostaa karkkia makunystyrille.

PhillyCraft (6309) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Tap and or bottle on many occasions...never got around to ticking her. Pours a low carbonated red purple color with small head. Notes of fruit syrup, cherry, vanilla oak, and sugar. I have always preferred New Glarus fruit juices to these folks

Belgium at its finest but not excellent. Its merely just plain excellence. But grab it if you can.

First sour I ever had and still one of my favourites. Love the balance of fruit with slight vinegar bite, just right.

lokis333 (417) - Birai, LITHUANIA - OCT 1, 2016
Deep magohany brown red color with quickly disapearing brown foam. Aromas tart of oak, wet wood, cherries with red wine undertones and juniper. Palate, medium body with smooth and tslick texture leaving fruity soft finish. Taste is tart and sour of wood, juniper and sour cherries then developing into more soft and pleasant ripe cherry flavours folowed by plum. Overall, nice beer, initialy bit too tart but once flavours develops tastes really nice. Do recomend.
