On tap. Pours a clear dark ruby with a medium, long lasting, beige head that laces. Aroma of sour fruit, balsamic vinegar, red wine and oak. Sweet flavour of cherries, apple cider, red wine and oak with a sour finish. Medium body with a watery texture and average carbonation.

Adamsville (259) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2016
Apparence : Brune, cuivre, reflets rouges-orange, faible col sans rtention, lgre dentelle, carbonatation semble moyenne et moyennement rapide. Nez : Vinaigre balsamique, touche sucre, bois, alcool, tannins de raisins. Got : quilibre entre le sucre et lacidit, vinaigre balsamique la framboise, bois en mi-bouche. Sensation : Effervescence faible moyenne, finale mi-acide mi-sucre qui trane plus sur le sucre, moyennement longue, astringence du bois. Corps moyen, mais tout de mme huileux. Bref : Bel quilibre entre lacidit et le sucre rsiduel, surtout pour une bire sre. Lacidit nest dailleurs jamais agressante. La framboise apporte dfinitivement une touche intressante.

A pleasant surprise. A lovely dark sour ale which was full of flavor and body. It could have benefited from an extra 1% or 2% to make it suitable for sipping like a wine. Only the aroma was a bit weak.

A really pleasant surprise. Great dark color, balanced sour flavor and a variety of sensations on the palate. Could have used an extra 1% or 2% alcohol.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2016 Aus der Flasche getrunken (von einem hollndischen Hndler bezogen). Dunkelstes Rotbraun mit stabiler heller Schaumkrone im Glas. Fruchtige Sure in der Nase. Im Antrunk herbe Fruchtsure von Beerenfrchten. Bleibt aber auch im Nachtrunk sauer. Erfrischend.

25 cl bottle at home. Appearance: red brown with medium off-white head. Aroma: red wine, old hops, grapes, fruity esters, butterscotch and ethyl acetate. Taste: high sweetness with low bitterness. Sourness that slowly degrades toward the finish. Notes of sour cherries, grapes and brown sugar. Palate: medium bodied, slick texture and lively carbonation.

0.33 bottle.
A very dark, crimson color with a small, off-white head - looks very much like red wine. Aroma of wine without fermentation scents - if it makes any sense - as well as juice and caramel - not acidic in the way wines can be. A sweet taste of grapes; it is juicy, a tad sour, definitely not dry. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long and good, introduces some herbal elements. Overall the beer is good and definitely deserves a recommendation.

doc_andry (17) - ITALY - JUL 19, 2016
Si presenta scura con riflessi rosso brillanti ed esigui ma adeguatamente persistente cappellino di schiuma fine color panna; aroma vinoso complesso che si mantiene anche al palato dove permangono sentori di chiodi di garofano dopo il sorso.
