ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Reviewed 1/15/2013. 11.2 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours a dark red color with nice clarity. Typical of a sour, there isnt much head, a one finger eggshell color that fades quickly. S: I love how the cherries intermingle with the oak qualities the aroma provides. Sourness is subtle, enough to create a delicate interplay between the other aromatic notes. Not explosive, just wonderful to inhale. T: A bit of a letdown from the nose, which isnt really saying much. Immediately, cherry flavors combine with a balanced lactic tartness. I love how cherry forward this comes across without going overly sweet. The finish is mostly grainy malts and some diacetyl; however, after a few sips some of the cherry qualities bleed past the midtaste to drown out the buttery notes - exactly what I want in a Flemish red. Keep in mind this is about 3/10 sour, so those looking for an enamel beatdown wont find it here. M: Light and crisp. A very light tannic quality appears in the aftertaste, but this isnt particularly dry. Its well carbonated and refreshing, and goes down quickly. O: One thing that deserves to be mentioned is how inexpensive this bottle was - about $1.75 for a single 11.2 oz bottle. Its not the greatest sour ever, but as a refreshing thirst quencher, Id take this over many standard fruit beers any day. Its cheap (for a sour), its well made, and its a panty dropper. Enough said!

Unusually in can from Bradleys in Cork. Pour red winy, with slight sour tart, but easy drinking and refreshing. No problem with the can.

hrabren (1056) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 31, 2016
0.25 l bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with lovely Anja. Clear reddish-brown, dark amber, small off-white head. Fruity aroma, vinegar, sour fruit, dusty. Winelike sourness, grapes, wine barrel. Light bod soft to medium carbonation, lasting finish, sweet, toasty, barrel. An interesting light beer.

ThreeCats (879) - ISRAEL - DEC 31, 2016
Fairly clear dull brown with little head. Aroma is vinous, red fruit, horse blanket,sour cherries or plums, tart. Taste is tart but a bit watery, notes of caramel taste but not sweetness. Not very sour, not very flavorful. Not very anything, really. It is refreshing though.

12oz bottle pours out a amber color topped with a sand head. Nose is nice sour cherries some lemon zest wood and a sweet notes. Taste is more of the nice cherries tart and sweet along with the classic barrel touch.

Look: clear dark mahagony, stable beige head. Aroma: sweet wine, brett, sherry. Taste: light to moderate sour, subtle sweetness. Less sweet then Grand Cru. Flavour: dried sour cherries, wine, cheap vinegar. Good.

jacobarts (138) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2016
Bottle. Mahogany color, with tiny tan head. Aroma of cherry, vinegar and sour apples. Dry taste of cherries, apples and with a semi bitter and soapy finish. Probarely not my favorite style.
