One of my dear favorites. Pours a dark amber, great head and great lacing. Aroma is pure aged balsamic vinegar. The frontal attack on the palate crushes your salivary glands, making you pine for another sip. I call this the ’beer for wine drinkers’, and I have yet to be wrong!

Kolor czerwony, klarowne, piana różowa, szybko opada do pierścienia. W aromacie ocet, czerowne wino, wiśnie, suszone owoce. W smaku dzika róża, wiśnie, suszone owoce, winogrona. Goryczki nie ma, ale jest bardzo taniczne w odbiorze, wysycenie dość wysokie, co tylko poprawia pijalność. Bardzo dobre.

Color marrón oscuro, rojizo si le da la luz, turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de dos dedos de grosor (retención decente y burbujas amplias). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Aroma a vinagre, fruta. Mucha acidez en nariz, interesante pero cansa un poco. En boca más ácida que dulce pero con buen balance, no llega a ser vinagre. Bastante frutal. Al que le guste lo ácido (como a mí), la va a disfrutar. Postgusto ácido que se desvanece rápido. Buena.

Rychuku (89) - POLAND - JUN 26, 2017
bottle 0,25 drunk half a year after the expiry date. Aroma of red wine, full, fresh, kind of sweet aroma of wine, but also some paint remover. Dark red colour. Sweet, sour and bitter, with a tinge of alcohol in the back of the throat. Also red fruits. The paint remover is kind of disturbing, but the buquet is still very rich and original. I will definitely try it again, next time with fresher beer.

It was very interesting, taste like vinegar. Could be nice after a heavy food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Probada en el club de cata Olut de Sabadell, de aroma la sensación es de vinagre pero al gusto es más dulce de lo que esperas

nathanvc (449) - 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 (919) - 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

zizivan (10) - SLOVENIA - JUN 23, 2017
Vinegar and glue, cherries, up front caramel sweetness, complex packed with flavor, but too much glue on the nose.

Towey1989 (2719) - 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.
