Bottled 250ml. -Copper coloured, small to medium white head, sour wine nose with notes of wood. Light citric and sourish aroma with notes of roasted malt and berries. Quite unpleasant vinegary finish but otherwise ok sour ale.

Bottle. Copper color. Vinous aroma. Malty with hints of cherry. Malty flavor with oak and hints of cherry juice. Slightly tart and vinous. Dry out effect. Hints of citrus and raisin. Very well balanced, albeit just a bit alcoholic.

JoeinDahlem (1580) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2008
A surprising and impressive beer, this one. 25cL bottle pours a bright and clear reddish-brown, thin layer of white lace. Intense and tart aroma like sour red wine, whiskey-oak, and a bit of sour cherry. Inviting. Flavor is tart and juicy, with cherry and vinous notes, with mild acidity on light and lively mouthfeel. Grape-tangy finish. Wow. Damned interesting, damned likable, and refreshing to boot.

3.3
JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008
(on bottle) Dark orange, white head. Aroma of champions and kandis, mould too. Very sweet taste, but it has a tad of funk, witch makes it a real gilsdrink, skål, tøser.

3.9
wacho (52) - Izegem, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2008
geproeft in Kroegske Oostende. Kriek- wijnaroma met de zoete fruitge Duchessesmaak. Het heeft een sprankelend licht bitter mondgevoel. en een zchte krieknasmaak die lang blijft hangen. Een heerlijk bier, een Verhaeghe meer dan waardig

3.6
Christian (13752) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 27, 2008
Light amber with a lasting off-white head. Good looking lace. Weak funky aroma, extremely rodenbach-like, with malt in the background. Sweet and fruity with a little tartness.
