heliport's rating

heliport (12) - Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2013
Hits the mouth with a pleasant fruity taste, comes across sweet but not like a candy. Aroma is pleasant and the color is dark.

nathanvc (448) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2017
At Het Spijker, Ghent. Pours hazy dark red with a small, lasting, off-white head. The aroma contains vinegar (balsamic), (sour) cherry, wine, raisin, wood, some yeast and ’basement aromas’, dried fruit. It tastes medium to heavy sour and very light fruity sweet, with a tart finish. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, oily texture. Well-balanced, complex. I’m not a big enthusiast of the style, but I can acknowledge this one’s superiority.

jksipa (916) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2017
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear reddish brown with a large lingering off white heat that leaves some patchy lace. Nose is Vinegar, dark fruit, grape, cherries and light wood. Flavour is a light fruit sweetness with a dominant cherry tartness that continues through the sticky finish.Mouth is medium+ and sticky with a good carbonation. Full and complex. 7/4-/8/4/15

Vinegar and glue, cherries, up front caramel sweetness, complex packed with flavor, but too much glue on the nose.

Towey1989 (2700) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2017
Bottle at Den Engel, Leek. Pours a deep brown colour with a thin white head. Aroma of plum, black grape, some vinegar, slight cherry, a little sourness and subtle wood. Taste of plum, dark berries, some black grape, slight vinegar, a little sourness, a hint of wood and subtle sugar. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dry, slightly sharp, red fruit sourness on the finish. As good as Rodenbach but more softer and slightly more sour. Good body and lots of fruit. Very good.

Aroma of a good Belgian Trappist ale, beautiful reddish-brown colour...just not a fan of sour ales. My palate hasn't matured to the point where I appreciate them yet I guess. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fantastic and unique beer. It has a very bitter and sweet almost citrusy flavor. One of my top beers and one that I buy for sharing with special guests. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
