Clear red pour, almost light red or pink colored, with a very thin head. Aroma is tart, hints of oak and some wine notes. A little fruity. Light bodied. Taste is also pretty light and kind of watery. Lingering berry notes, almost like grape skin. Lots of carbonation. Hints of wine are present along with a slight tartness. Just not a ton of flavor in this and is kind of one note. I guess I was expecting more. No lace. jazz88 (2684) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 19, 2017

Had er zelf meer van verwacht. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2017
Amber, headless. Surprisingly fruity, sour, very malts too, fermentation. Nice integrated carbonation, pretty flavourful. Good special release actually! (75cl bottle shared with Bertanne, Darren and Alyssa at Café Botteltje)
ineedbeer (2329) - Oakland, California, USA - MAR 4, 2017
Poured from a 750 ml bottle.
Aroma is fruity with a lot of pear and red apple notes. Some lighter stone fruit and red grape notes. Light oak notes. Moderate red wine notes. Some light, herbal funk.
Pours a slightly hazy, brilliant, copper-orange with a medium sized white head that recedes fairly quickly to a thin film that lingers throughout. Moderate lacing and small legs.
Flavor is lightly acidic with a medium sweetness to it. Lots of red wine character with some red grapes, stone fruit, red apple and pear. Light oak notes. Sweetness has a bit of a candi sugar -like flavor to it and works really well with the red wine notes. Hints of herbal, earthy funk.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, this is a really nice beer. The fruit notes work seamlessly with the red wine notes in the aroma and the red wine notes in the flavor combine with the malt sweetness to make for a really nice experience.

(from 75cL bottle @ RBBSG IV, the Hot and Sweaty Edition, Gent 2015. Thanks for sharing, tderoeck!)
appearance: clear chestnut, thin light tan head. aroma: balsamic vinegar, cherries, tart green apple, with some notes of wet wood and leather. taste: sweet and sour sauce, light caramel, hint of graham cracker and light molasses; good sourness like red wine vinegar. finish: lingering sweet and sour notes, hint of raspberry. notes: Not a bad sour, and there was enough maltiness to sweeten things a bit. Palate was just a tad too flat for me. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

Shared 750 ml. bottle labeled as a Triple Ale, donated to the session by the Kaiser, and poured to snifters displaying a hazed, amber color, with a modest layer of off white head foam, and ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was fruity as apple, light spice, with a touch of vinous nature. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, the taste was similar notes, tart & tangy.
