ZBF2008: From tap. Pours hazy and dark brown with a lacing tan head. Dry and light roasted malt. Flavour holds that rather fruity towards cherry flavoured Rodenbach yeast with a distinct ether note. Light roasted malt flavour too. Slight sharp spiced flavour towards the finish. Goes slight dry.

3.4
Ungstrup (37338) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2003
The aroma is slightly sour and sweet with notes of plums and the wild fermentation - really good. The color is deep red and slightly unclear. The head is beige and long lasting. The flavor is lovely: sour and sweet with notes of black currant and plums, and it ends on a nice acidicness. A little thin for a Belgium beer - probably the 5% ABV.

Bottle. Clear red coloured with a small off white head. Light acidic aroma of red wine and berries with notes of wood and cress. Light acidic flavour of red wine and raspberries with notes of wood. A bit watery.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Super tart sour Belgian red with a worcester sauce sour finish! Great!

Travlr (24333) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 10, 2008
A gift from Peter who works in Brusles but wisely lives in Leuven, tasted at Delirium. Nicely sweet and sour with oaky overtones. A winner.
