Pours dark red, with a beige head. First time with this style, so I may be a little biased. Nose is sharp and sour: vinegar, grapes, grape juice, dark berries. Very unusual, but I’m drawn in. First taste: explosion of different tastes, there is so much stuff going on that i can’t grasp all of the flavors. Sensing fruits, sweet-sour cherry, sharpness. After a couple of more sips, there’s a nice aceto balsamico taste. Like a sour fruit salad. Plums, grapes, tartiness. Every sip is different. This is a huge surprise for me! Very awesome!

Odeur de vin , robe rouge/noire,peu de mousse , goût acide vinaigré avec un final boisé qui nous rappelle le fut de chêne dans lequel elle a fermenté , un gout délicatement sucré qui reste sur le palet. Pour conclure c’est une excellente bière assez complexe et peu chère environ 2,50 E

Księżna Burgundii klasykiem jest... Co do tego nie ma wątpliwości. A czy komuś ten klasyk pasuje, czy nie, to już osobny temat. Ja należę do tej pierwszej grupy! Ciemnobrązowy kolor, z praktycznie zerową pianą. W aromacie bardzo intensywnie! Nuty winne, słodkie, ze sporą dawką owoców. W smaku bardzo dużo nut słodko-kwaśnych, winnych. Bardzo dużo owoców - wiśni. Takich kwaśnych wiśni. Piwo jest trochę za słodkie, ale i tak pije się bardzo przyjemnie. Porządny klasyk!

tgrtnr (181) - Augsburg, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2017
330 ml bottle in tulip. Dark red colour, medium beige head. Grapes, vinegar, old red wine, champagne, lemon. Very sour, sweet hint and quite fruity. Medium body, lively carbonated. Very sophisticated, not easy to drink. Overall it can be described as a sour rose champagne with a dominant grape aroma. Very interesting!

nephirem (539) - CROATIA - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours deep ruby body with thin layer of beige head, long lasting and leaving nice lacing on the glass. First time drinking this style, so! Somewhat unusual nose, mostly vinegar, a bit sour cherry, faint malty. Interesting. Thin to medium body with regular carbonation. Lively on the tongue. Taste is pleasantly sour. Aroma of cherry liquor, slight vinegar, a bit woody. Slight brown sugar. Berries. Candy-like mouthfeel followed by sour and dry finish. Overall, very interesting beer to try. Nice one!
