Another beer from De Regenboog, another brought back from my recent trip to Belgium. I’m not sure if it’s a winter seasonal but the festive sled with the cartoon dog leads me to believe so.
It’s a murky coppery-brown with no head to speak of. A tart berry aroma wafts from the glass, (this ale is supposedly brewed with some sort of berry) some brett funk smells too.
Quite tart. Who am I kidding? It’s pretty sour, lots of acetic acid and barnyard funk. The berry/cherry sourness flits in and out too. Surprisingly, the finish is relatively clean, just a hint of vinegary sourness and then it’s gone. The mouth is light but lots of flavor.
It’s unique. Not sure I love it but it is different. Tsotsi (178) - Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2010
On Tap @ RedLight. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Nose is sour, kinda funky, some smoke, and citrus as well. Flavor is the same as the nose and got some metallic flavor out of it as well. Different for sure. gunnfryd (14895) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2010

33 cl bottle. Pours red brown with a white head. Aroma and taste are bad,I didn’t like them. Too much carbonation too...Not a beer that I’m going to drink again. redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2010
draft @ redlight redlight. Cranberries on the nose with hints of tart strawberries. Pours a hazy gold with a pinkish hue and slightly pink head. Tart fruit, cranberries, bready malt, very earthy with a slight vegetal taste as well. Not bad. Interesting.

Bottle. A hazy, orange to dark golden beer topped by a dense, off-white head. Quite cellarish on the nose, with berries and a hint of burnt plastic. The flavor has berries and cellar, as well as some lemony sourness. Medium body, sourish. A strange beer, tasting better after a few sips, but I couldn’t bring myself to really enjoy it. 091127 Travlr (24880) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2010
Draught at Churchkey. Light amber color, white head that settles sloe-ly to an edge. Aroma of malt and cardboard. Taste is slightly sour, with a bitter, herbal finish that sloe-ly becomes annoying as it warms. witterank (11) - BELGIUM - APR 16, 2010
Fruity-sour, hazy beige-coloured ’sloe-berry-beer’. Rather poor head, fresh palate. Not quite overwhelming but worth a try. Sloe sounds cool. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Pours a hazy golden brownish color. Aromas of mild berries, wheat bread, and a touch of hops. Flavor is a nice balance of soft fruit flavor with malts and a crisp dry finish. I’m not big on fruit beers, but this one has a subdued flavor, not over the top. wekker84 (2360) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2009
