imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours opaque cola brown rouge with a tinged red light tan head. Not altogether too resilient, but leaving a ring around the tulip. Sweet malts underly a vinegar sour tart cherry and woody character on the nose. Very refreshing spritzy carbonation and creamy light spritzy mouthfeel, light medium body, sweet malts balanced with a sour tartness and subtle woody notes. Finish is lightly sweet, with the sour tarness coming through balancing for a very satisfying finish.

sonofian (15) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
A standard for fans of the style and a great intro for those that arent. Not as good as the Grand Cru but then basically nothing is. Thick brown rubies dissipate into light cherry vinegar and sour Belgian soil. Nifty.

john44 (2630) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2017

pjotrapostou (54) - POLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Piana niezbyt gęsta, szybko opada. W zapachu niezbyt wiele się dzieje, jest taki owocowo-octowy, trochę wiśni. W smaku jest podobnie, ale trochę więcej: przyjemna i dość delikatna owocowa kwaśność, finisz lekko słodowy, niezbyt długi, goryczki praktycznie nie ma, wysycenie średnie w stronę małego. Generalnie jest to bardzo lekkie i orzeźwiające, łatwe w odbiorze piwo "na co dzień".

CyborgX (90) - THAILAND - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle - aroma is almost undetectable, perhaps just a slight hint of sour. Pous a clear dark ruddy colour. Tastes sour but uninspiring. This is the cheaper younger brother of GrandCru Rodenbach. Don't waste your hard earnt money on it, get the GrandCru, the real deal, or go one step further and get a bottle the Duchesse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Johnstledger8 (1036) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 23, 2017
Draught. Pours a dark opaque reddish brown with a lasting thin light beige head. Aroma is of cherries, cranberry, nuts, caramel. Taste is of toffee, cherry, berries, dried fruit, slightly bitter finish. Oily mouthfeel, soft to medium carbonation.

Godfather50 (228) - SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2017
Rorys Birthday bottles, pours red clear with a little head. Explosive taste which you could dip your chips in, but refreshingly drinkable. Sour cherries, tart fruit, sweet malt. Different and very nterestiing. A great break in an evenings tasting.

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