UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 I’m a fan of this style, and this might be the best example I’ve had. It has a nice amber-cherry color and that classic aroma with a hint of barnyard (yes, that’s a good thing) and some sourness. The initial flavor is sour cherry and some orange peel, with some floral qualities and a clean tartness that sparkles on the tongue. What pluses this for me is the finish, which had a faintly bitter crispness. Both complex and refreshing. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2007
Mahogany with a creamy, nice head. The aroma has a berry-like acidity and the flavour is sweet/slightly sour with nice notes of berries, caramel and it’s a smooth, pleasant, uncomplicated and charming beer - quenching and nice. 2477 Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2007
poured into small tuilip. tasting at bruisin ales. pours a brown clear amber, a sour fruity aroma. sour on the front initial, with relatively mild finish. fruity and sour, good stuff... Christian (13752) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2007
On tap, Christian IV, Odense. Clear reddish brown, with a small creamy off-white head. Rich aroma of dark sugar, spice, malt and of course, that indescribeable, vinegar-like bret. Sweet flavour with acid balance. Pleasant malt background. Lovely beer, if slightly on the sweet side for my taste. Bosskie (914) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 25cl 5.2% bought in Belgium.
Red-brown and clear but very dark, with a small head.
The aroma is pretty interesting: burnt sugar, coffee, cardamom, curry, soy sauce, smell - it smells like a Chinese dish!
Bitter-sweet flavour with a liquorice, burnt sugar, apple syrup taste. Overal an interesting beer, but a bit too sweet for me.

Dark color with thin off white fizzy head. Refreshing tartness with light fruitiness. Medium body and carbonation. Easy to drink. Very good. OJB (39) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 27, 2007
The colour was deep reddish brown, with a creamy brownish head. There was a strong sour berry cinnamon spice aroma. The taste showed fruity berry and light malt, it was sour acidic, and there was a short light oak finish. This is a distinctive style with quite a lot of complexity, moderate body, and is quite refreshing. daniele (9439) - ITALY - JUL 24, 2007
bottiglia da 25 scura al naso subito piacevolmente pungente in bocca meno potente facile da bere henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - JUL 22, 2007
The 750ML bottle poured a beautiful, clear, reddish amber beverage with a moderately sized frothy off-white head that was fully lasting, turning creamy as it matured and it left wonderful lacing on the glass. The aroma was pungent with sour and fruity aromas mingling to produce an almost brandy-like character. The body was medium-light with lively carbonation and a slightly watery texture. The flavor was quite tart and sour at the start. It does mellow quickly as it ages on the palate but still retains just a hint of sourness through the medium-long finish.

Earthy, the sour mixes well with the body of this beer. So easy to drink, finishes dry with a strong dark fruit prescense that balances it out so well. A great brew whos quality shines through.
