Capa (3195) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2007 Pours a deep ruby red with a medium, light tan head. Very nice looking beer. Aroma of tart cherries, vinegar, sour, and mroe fruit. Flavor is much less sour. Sweet instead of sour, fruit, some cherry. Finishes sweet with a light touch of tart cherry (finally!). Clean, crisp body. Enjoyable.

BelgianBeerGal (4021) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2007
UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 25cL bottle. Pours dark with a tan color head. Definite hints of red wine present, but does not detract from the taste. Interesting and likeable bier.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Dark brown translucent color with small off-white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is huge, vinous and fruity. Flavor is strong, sour fruits with syrupy sweetness. Pretty good overall

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 19, 2007
11.2 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a red glow. Flavor and aroma of cherries and red vinegar. Nice sweetness up front followed by a mellow sourness. High carbonation works well with nicely balanced beer. Not my favorite style of beer, but I enjoyed sipping this beer.

505 (271) - Echo Park, California, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Aroma not terribly strong, of woody vinegar and cherries. Pours dark brown with a small lasting head. Hits sweet, then tart and cherry, then has a bitter and dry finish. Pretty good overall, but not as out there as I like in my FS.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2009 bottle at Sheffields...aroma: tart cherry pretty much sums it up, almost a little wine-like.....appearance: dark brown, cherry-red, and raisiney in color accompanied by a thin almost white head.....taste: starts off with some sour cherries with oak notes. the flavor then evolves to something sweeter. nice and refreshing for a warm day in chicago. i was surporised by this one and would be more than happy to have again.

Bottle shared with fordest at Obriens. Very intense tart smells of sour cherries and some aging flowers. Awesome flavors of sour fruit and wood.

MiP (15483) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2007
UPDATED: APR 25, 2014 Bottle at K07. Nice woody and sour aroma. The flavour is nicely sour, yoghurty, with a little earth and wood. Quite sweet. Slightly cleansing. Very nice, although on the sweet side. 7 3 8 3 18

Bottle, 6.2%. Acetic and vinegary aroma - mouthwatering. Clear brown colour. Small stable light brown head. The flavour is sweet at first, but turns nicely acidic. Like my original rating, I must sayt it is a bit sweet. 8 3 7 3 16
