From (very old) notes. Tasted on 8/24/11 from a capped 750mL bottle , big thanks to Kan for sharing. Pours a slightly hazy deep red with a very thin pink tinted tan head that slowly recedes to spotty lace with a decent collar that sticks around. The nose is lightly sour with some barnyard earthy funk, oaky vanilla and cinnamon notes, along with some prune, molasses, brown sugar, and a bit of red wine vinegar. The flavor is tart with red wine vinegar and sour cherry, dark date, raisin, molasses, with the barnyard funk and light notes of oak underlying. The body is medium with light carbonation and a long tart red wine vinegar and tannic finish. redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2011
750 ml gusher. Tart fruit on the nose, guava, and oak. Pours very muddy with fruit solids in the glass, pours an amber red. Nice tartness upfront with the dates blending nicely with the oak the guave and funky tartness working great. Pours ugly but tastes great! brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 22, 2011
A: The pour is quite hazy and dark reddish-brown in color with a finger or two of off-white head.
S: Like with Marron Acidifie, the acetic character is rather in check. Plenty of red fruits and particularly lots of red wine aroma. Nice oak and a touch of leather and chocolate. The fruits donít come through too much, but there is a bit of the guava.
T: A light caramel sweetness to it with just a hint of dates and plums. Red wine, red wine vinegar, and some tart guava. A nice oakiness to it and a little bit of tannins, maybe some leathery funk.
M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: Not sure if I liked this or Marron better. Very good either way. dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2011
(750ml bottle). Pours a hazy caramel/red color with an off-white head. Aroma is vinegar/funk, fruity and very belgian like. Taste is sweet with sour fruit. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Finish is dry with wood notes. Really nice beer. storminorman (78) - Arizona, USA - AUG 26, 2011

(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy amber brown body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel, horse blanket, wet leather, raisins, dates, oak, and cherries. Flavor of vinous, cherry, raspberry, brown sugar, raisins, guava, yogurt, oak, and dates. Sourness (while moderate) seems to come and go with this beer.

Believe this was shared by dcschiller @ Dakís Cantillon Tasting...if so, thanks Dave!!! Bright copper/crimson colored hue with a small eggshell head that left a spot of lacing. Literally, a spot. Both nose and flavor show tons of balsamic vinegar, dark fruit, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, tart cherry skins, and oak. Medium mouthfeel with a solid amount of carbonation. j12601 (10871) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle that I took to Andyís for Paulís birthday and Joeyís going away (and hopefully coming back at some point) tasting. Pours a hazed ruby and copper amber with a slight white head. Mango, papaya, and sweet fruit, acid and wood. Apparently I should be smelling and tasting dates here as well. Donít really get that. Woody, soft acid, wood and fruit. Lightly acidic, fruit and wood. Lingering acid, woody, acid. Tasty. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2011

Thanks to GregSVT for sharing this bottle at the Flying Saucer Beer Tasting.
The beer pours a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of dark fruit, with a lot of cherries, cranberries and blackberries. I also get a nice dose of brown sugar and some light tartness.
The flavor is also very nice. I get a lot of tart cherries and other dark fruit, as well as some nice oaked notes. I get a little bit of toffee as well as some light sweetness and brown sugar notes. The sweet and sour components go very well together.
The mouthfeel is relatively thin and the carbonation is pretty low. A very nice sour beer. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Bottle shared at Tower of Sour Power. Iíve been looking forward to trying this since I had Marron Acidifie. Was there much of a difference? Honestly not really. This had that sour mustard type smell along with a sour tart flavor. I like them both donít get me wrong.
