March 2013 - coldish 25cl bottle. A little worried because I didn’t like the grand cru much, and this smells like vinegar……Red brown colour, high carbonation, apple juice with a sour finish, sherry notes, light to mid body, enduring sweet and sour finish which has a lot of balance to it. No bitterness. There is still a slight element of vinegar, but only very subtle and could even be lemon. This is actually an enjoyable and interesting flavour. A very good beer. I’ve had to give this beer an aroma rating of 6 in order to give it the overall ’4’ it deserves...but really the aroma rating should be 2.
It pours a cloudy brown with a tan head. Head retention is low, but there is lacing on the side. It has a toast aroma with tart cherries and some plums. The flavor are tart and have a balance of tart cherries and toast. There is a low level of wood and background sweet notes. It has a moderate body with a sweet tart finish. Overall, the toast makes this an intriguing beer with the fruit flavors taking over in the finish. Scrumpy369 (784) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 16, 2017
Can in brusselles. Deep copper colour small white head disappears fast. Nose is acetic, woody. Taste is light sourness, red berries. Fast finish, low carbonation. Nice and easy. ClearHead (30) - FINLAND - JUN 15, 2017
Bottle bought in Porto, Portugal, 06/2017. BB 28.5.2018. Dark amber, decent head. Beautiful. Aroma fairly weak, sour, cherries. Taste sour in a vinegary way, fairly sweet, dark berries. Mouthfeel slightly thin. This is a beer that you either love or hate. I am on the borderline myself. The bottle wass too warm due to hot weather, and this will have had an impact; should be fairly cool when consumed. Darwenus (1113) - Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Pours cloudy brown/red. The brief head is gone in an instant. The aroma is tart and bright. Cherries, red wine vinegar, a little bit of brown sugar. Flavor starts out bittersweet and smooth, the sourness comes in on the back of the tongue. Rich on the finish. Might be a good introduction to the style, the sourness is unmistakable but not overwhelming. PhilosophyGuy (649) - Łódź, POLAND - JUN 2, 2017
Aromat czerwonych owoców, delikatnie octowy, delikatnie kwaśny. W smaku słodkie, nieco nut czerwonych owoców, kwaśność na niskim poziomie. Pina średnio wysoka - grube pęchrzyki, dosyć trwała. Niezłe, choć jednowymiarowe,

0.25 l can from Carrefour brugge. Quite red with some head. Quite sour and fruity, some sweetness. Quite fizzy. Bierridder_S (879) - BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2017
27/05/2017 - 75cl bottle (BBF 2015) @Peter’s house.
Surprised to see I didn’t rate this yet. Maybe too obvious because I find and drink it regularly. Murky brown with creamy tanned head. Nose is soft sour, wood, dark malts, some cherry. Taste is dark malts, some caramel, bit port, soft sour, some wood, some cherry, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Really surprised by this vintage one. Didn’t expect it to become like this. Nice. micia600 (156) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 27, 2017
Piwo barwy czerwonej, klarowne, piana w zasadzie żadna. W aromacie winna kwaśność, czerwone owoce i może ocet winny (?). W smaku bardzo umiarkowanie kwaśne, zakończone słodko-gorzką nutą która kojarzy mi się najbardziej z czerwonymi owocami (chyba najbliżej do czerwonych winogron) i beczką. Generalnie lekkie i orzeźwiające. Wysycenie średnie. Goryczki brak. alcedo2011 (7) - - MAY 21, 2017 does not count
Este estilo de cervezas me ha sorprendido y no he sido capaz de sacarle nada bueno. irenecus (785) - - MAY 11, 2017
