A bottle that aged for 3 mounths.
Too much leftover suger that makes it unballanced. The acidity don’t tast clean as in a Rodenbach. wetherel (1899) - Cupertino, California, USA - JUN 3, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2008 Tried at Stone Brewery. Strong diacetyl smell/feel. Tangy and sweet. Nice lacing, deep red color. My friend says he’s never tasted a diacetyl problem in this beer, but it was bad in this one.7,4,6,3,15: 3.5

Bottle. High and lasting creamy off-white head. Beautiful clear ruby body with a lot of carbonation. Vinegar grape fruit like aroma. Flavor pretty sugary vinegar sour. Pleasant and long berries aftertaste. Avatar (87) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAY 27, 2007
0,25 bottle. Dark. Taste is of aples and sour. Wine-like. Aroma sour and of alcohol. Great stuff! shalloWMeans (169) - Independence, Kentucky, USA - MAY 27, 2007
UPDATED: APR 13, 2008 Corked bottle. Pours with a moderate lacy white head. Perfect mahogany with ruby hue. Smell is very complex. Belgium malt, cherry, plum, and raspberry vinegarette. The taste is deliciously complex, with a bracing sourness thats followed by lots of fruity and spicy sweetness. An incredible beer that marriages all the characteristics of a good burgundy wine and a delicious Belgian ale.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2007 *new comment* There was another beer that was retired under a similar name-One of the best Flemish sour ales I’ve had**
Delicious is all I can say...thanks to Ron at Vintage Estates for reccomending this. Pour a dark gold with a 2 finger off white head. Aroma of vinegar. Taste of vinegar and malt. Very refreshing and a nice change of pace. I didn’t know this was retired. I am going to try to scoop as many of these up as I can!bryandhargrave (165) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2007

After riding a Hop wave for months a local bartender poured me a glass without telling me what i was drinking. Really good. People are right, strong cider and vinegar flavours. Beautiful colour. I found some locally very soon in the form of a 1pt 9.4oz bottle. Poured on my own I can smell and see this wonderful brew much better. I very much enjoy that it bubbles from the bottom of my 23oz glass well after my initial pour. Certainly a welcome change from my usual 100+ IBU selections.

Smells really sweet, with honey, brown sugar, apples, tastes cidery, sour, but with serious malt presence. Just exactly the amount of sourness I like. Reminds me of both cider vinegar and malt vinegar, but has a little sweetness for balance. Reddish brown with a small tan head, hellbilly (3306) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2008 nice carbonation and sour aroma. flavor is heavy with apple cider vinegar and cranberries. i had two bottles one evening. the first tasted mineraly with flint. really disappointing but i was drinking from a pint. the second, which was served properly, was delicious. the sourness was softened with wood, vanilla and black pepper tones

cinnamon, tart red apples, red wine, dry oak and soft creaminess in the flavor. minerals/ wet stones and earth in the aroma. nice balance of sweet -vs- sour. very refined sour...
A dark rich red/amber hue with an exquisite creamy head. A subtle red wine (Cabernet/Merlot) aroma is noticed when it first approaches the mouth. Upon the first taste, it has a lush & soft mouth feel. Reminds me of tasting a dark chocolate coated fruit, maybe a fresh off the vine strawberry, which is amazingly sweet, yet tart all at the same time. A very nice drink that could compliment any meal. What it treat it was! I hope to enjoy it again soon.
