Draught: Golden brown. . . thin creamy head that will not go away. Not a hugely aromatic beer: hints of cherries, something metallic, and perhaps some thin whisps of a campfire. Thin, light, smooth mouth feel: tart, sour sugar and pears. Tangy sour finsih that does not linger very long. I have to say I was expecting a bit more, but was in no way disappointed.

Draught. Pours brown/red color with a thick, off-white head. The aroma is a bit weak, but reminiscent of cherries and oak. the flavors, as they warm are quite nice. Sour cherry, vanilla, a bit of spice, and a lovely sweetness comprise the flavor. My biggest complaint is the lack of body. The flavors are nice, but are almost completely gone by the time you finish swallowing. The weakest of the Rodenbach family. mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2003
Big tart, vinuous aroma. Huge fluffy head & lovely colour. Very fruity complex flavour with some sourness (but not too much). Thin texture. Now if only I could get the Alexander or Grand Cru...? Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Chesnut red color. Medium body with complex wine-like earthy aromas. Soured ale-like flavors with winey complexity and acidity. Different and worth a try. rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 24, 2003
1/12/03. Slightly opaque ruby brown color with a small head. Fruity yeast aroma. Cherry flavor with sourness and tartness. Medium carbonation and light, watery mouthfeel. I had much higher expectations for this beer. Enjoyable but left me wanting.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2009 Fruity srawberry aroma. Redwine-colored, the head was gone quickly. Malty/walnut notes, yet fruity in front of a nice sour background. The palate fills out the entire mouth and you sit back with a aftertaste like from a dry white wine. diabel (1723) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2003
Red, though very dark colour. Light sweet aroma. Little bit sweet, but especially sour flavour, maybe I got a bad bottle, but this rating is way out of the standarddeviation. Very weird. pivo (2688) - GERMANY - JAN 2, 2003
Deep red-brown color and huge tan head. Light pleasant toast-like nose with hints of celery. Wow, is this complex! Caramel, raisins, and a grape NeHi-ish taste ends with a taste, sour lactic bite. Full body and clean palate, but smooth as hell. Complex and sophisticated but accessible. Great brewing. YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2003
Sour sellery nose. Brown with hints ofrd. Leggy. Raisons, sellery, fruity sourness - coming from cherries are the tastes. Smooth. skortila (5985) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2002
ery fruity (grapes and cherrie) aroma. clear, dark brown red appearance. taste is sour, winey, fruity and malty, hints of spices. Refreshing, but not more.
