UPDATED: APR 20, 2009 Red brown appearance. Barely no head. Aroma is balsamic vinegar, woody, red fruits, some sweetness if sweetness is perceivable with nose. Complex but way too sweet, with some sourness. (3.8)
Drank a couple of bottles, I’ve found it less sweet, with a superb sourness, mingling with a subtle vanilla woodiness and a mature red fruits note. couchand (182) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Strong acetic aroma, some oakiness.
Dark caramel, small creamy head.
Sweet, overbalancing the tart. Acidic on the tounge.
Great! WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 18, 2008
If nothing else, this is a beautiful-looking beer with a dark reddish brown, a thick creamy head and lots of lacing. Aroma is a nice balance of cherries and cider vinegar. Flavor is similar with a mix of sweet and tart. Cherry flavor still present, with the addition of some tart granny smith apples. Medium body and a smooth finish. I’m not a huge fan of the Flemish sour style, but this is a good, surprisingly drinkable beer. weeAnaP (1) - USA - MAY 17, 2008 does not count
Very unusual beer for me... very surprised with the striking after taste! Beautiful color and aroma... very addicting! RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Deep amber in color with an inch-thick tan head. Mild woodsy aroma with some dried fruit character. Flavor is sweet and sour, subtle balance of oak, vanilla, cranberries, sugar and hazelnut frosting. Very, very interesting. Full bodied and complex. Excellent.

Pours a hazy deep reddish brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of sour fruits....wow lots of sour funk in this one. Flavor is fruit, sweetness that balances out the sour, a little bit of nuttiness. Finishes nice and smooth. I quite enjoyed this style. note666 (1312) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2008

Cloudy reddish-brown color, lasting head. Sour, fruity aroma. The taste reminds me of both Finnish sahti-style beer and sweet red wine. The finish is dry and sour. Not a personal favorite.
I am not usually a big fan of sour ales but this one hit the spot. Bottle: Pours a amber brown that les only a bit of light thru. Lacing is sparse but dense when apparent. Carbonation is steady but has separate pillars. Nose is of ripe fruit blended with lemon. Body is elastic and swings from sweet and fruity to decidely tart and sour and then repeats twoce before fading. I didnt catch any oakyness but it may have helped the rounding of body. Glad I picked this one up.
