This beer poured a dark brown color w/ slight head and lacing. The aroma had soury light fermented fruit, apples, and grapes w/ a light raisin sweetness. The flavor had soury fermented light fruit, apples, candy and grapes. The mouthfeel was light to medium bodied and creamy.

Delicate and balanced mouthfeel. Soooo easy to drink. Sour cherry aromas and flavors, mixed with subtle old wood nuances. Mouthwatering, dry and refreshing. Top notch. A must try. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

The King of this style of beer. Complex, sour, oakey, vineious, in your face. Love it.

KM (416) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown body, small off white head. Heavy sweet malty aroma. Way too sweet flavour. There is some complexity here, but I dont whish to explore it further. (Brssel (hotel room), 15.12.07)

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Enjoyed one of these, dont think I could drink more than one though. A little like spoiled wine, very sour cherry flavor. I dont think i would buy this again, but thats just my taste in beer. Would recommend anyone to try it.

VinegarStroke (414) - Napa, California, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle 750ml: Clear, deep brown with slight red hue. Great thick white heat. Sour, very clean, malty and bright. Lifted. Caramel and old oak. Sour red fruit. Intense. Leesy. Off dry, sour, not bitter. Medium weight long, fine and acid. Elegant. Layers of flavor. Wonderful balance. Citrus and pomegranate. Sour beers still need to be clean and this does it.

Bire brune de 6.2 % dalcool. Rougetre. Petit col au versement, elle possde un odorat de vin en bouteille. On gote des fruits, des mres et des cerises noires, du genre cooler . Excellente et rafrachissante !

Pours an extreme dark red color with a nice, off-white head. Aroma is very sour, a definite oaked character. Initial sourness seems to be a carryover from the aroma; center of this beer seems to be nutty and sweet. A woody, sour finish. Satisfying, just not very interesting.
