Pours a deep, clear, dark red with a small head with great lace and decent retention. Aroma quite pungent - sour cherries overpowers. Taste is much more interesting - the cherries are still there, and so is a touch of yeast, but so is light malting, milk chocolate, sweet cherries, and a bready warm aftertaste with just a hint of sourness on the inhale. Mouthfeel is thick and satisfying, and the light carbonation is perfect! Easily my favourite Flemish sour ale. jainsv (113) - USA - FEB 6, 2007
This is the first flemish sour ale I have tried. It pours a deep red/brown color with a thin bubbly white head. It smells fruity with a hint of malt. The taste initially reminds you of wine with a semi-sweet taste which instantly changes to a nice sour aftertaste. Overall, an excellent beer. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2007
12oz Bottle @ Coles Buffalo NY. Reddish brown pour. Sour aroma & taste. I know this is the point but just doesn’t do it for me. I’m sure it’s a wonderfully made beer. Sten (752) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2007
Dark coloured beer with a fast diminishing head. Sourish in the aroma, sour and sweet taste. Well balanced beer. Very good to quench your thirst, specially nice in the summer. (Bottle 25cl) ekstedt (6773) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2007 Bottle. Red amber with a thick, creamy, beige head with long retention. Aroma very cider-like (red apples) with hints of wood. Smooth mouthfeel with a refreshing carbonation. Flavour adds a nice sweetness that is well integrated with the apple sourness. Very nice!

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2007 Bottle from Systembolaget. Never thought I’d say a beer that smells of hair spray would be worth drinking - but this beauty is. Amazing smells of oak, a bit of sour funk and cherry stones (and of course the hair spray).
Very wine/sherry-like in flavour, with a very sweet fruit accent that plays off nicely against the mild sourness and minimal bitterness.
One of those beers that just sticks out. Weird but worthy! Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2007
Bottle. Dark red colour with a fast receding off-white head. Smells a bit funny at first. Vinous aroma with cherries, acidic with lambic tones. Flavour is very sweet in the beginning followed by a slightly sour cherry taste ending with a synthetic finish. Soft mouthfeel. Furseth (2161) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2007
Botlle who it stand on the label back,best before 12-11-2005.
So this tasting of the beer was so exiting, because I never taste a belgium beer who has "ended" before I tasted it.
Colour was deep red clear,no head at all. Aroma was Vine, and has kin of berry nose .Yeasty,citric,and in the end a bit of acid tones too.
Flavor was vine,fruity,,some malt, and a smouth nice bitternes. Reminds me
about a spanich Vine with a bit of oag age feeling. This was exiting! Medium body, medium finish. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 28, 2007
Bottle at The White Horse on Parsons Green (London), a clear ruby red with a bubbly off-white head. A rich syrupy malt aroma with a touch of raspberry (and maybe plum). Strong raspberry flavours again, but a great spritzy palate, not syrupy at all.
