A beautiful plum color, there is a sweet vinegar smell to the beer, the taste, as a slight equal sour/sweetness to it, but that vinegar background is incredible. This beer is the prefect match between sweet and sour, one of the best beers I have had! Great beer.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2016 Framboosazijn en balsamico in de neus. Deze zetten zich voort in de smaak. Afdronk blijft matig hangen. Leuk zuur, maar net iets te zoet om een echte topper te zijn.

I bought this bottle at amstein and I drank it yesterday at home. In my point of view, it is a classical and pleasant Belgium beer to drink. The body is red and pink, thin foam staying a coupe of seconds. The taste is the perfect mix of sourness and sweetness, cherry, plum, sugar, malt, no hop, well balanced at all the phases.

Keg, ushers. Pours dark brown and a bit Ruby in hue. Scent is quite optimized sour Farmhouse ale. Taste is consistent, reminiscent of BFM. Finish is a little spicy and a bit dry. Red wine. Great.

The aroma of red berries and glue. The taste is of red berries and butter. A little alcohol comes at the end. Decent bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. This beer should drink cold and fast. It gets worse when it gets hot. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
