12oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a deep mahogany with a velvety, lasting tan head. Nose of pear and dried fruits more akin to wine, trying to remember "it’s a sour, it’s a sour". Complex flavour, with a mix-bag of sweet and tart, with apple and cherry being predominant. Sweet, smooth finish. Lots of carbonation on the tongue initially. Different and tasty.

Aromat wyraźnie estrowy. Banan, melon, trochę zmywacz do paznokci. W smaku zaskakująco słodkie, ale kwaśność też jest wyraźna, dochodzą wiśnie. Bardzo dobre

UPDATED: APR 20, 2009 Red brown appearance. Barely no head. Aroma is balsamic vinegar, woody, red fruits, some sweetness if sweetness is perceivable with nose. Complex but way too sweet, with some sourness. (3.8) Drank a couple of bottles, I’ve found it less sweet, with a superb sourness, mingling with a subtle vanilla woodiness and a mature red fruits note.

Roodbruin bier met mooie offwhite schuimkraag. Aroma: rode vruchten, eik, rietsuiker, champagne, rode wijn. Smaak: rode wijn, kersen, appel, rietsuiker, druiven, eiken notities en aangename zuurheid. Gemiddeld mondgevoel met middelgrote koolzuur en zurige afdronk.

This legend is an absolute masterpiece. If there is any limit of vinegar I can effort, and over which a beer is tiring (while below which- it’s boring)- this point is here obtained. A complex sourness is delivered, apart vinegar, by apples, subtle cherries. There’s some curious spiciness (on a brown pepper side), some interesting wine and wood astringency. High carbonation suits the total impression. Very drinkable, refreshing. Too much iron, though. Resembles a semi-sweet wine. So good it’s 8 polish zlotych only, wondering how much cheaper it is around the source...

crystal clear dark brownish amber with a great fluffy white head that leaves great lacing. deep tart cherry aroma with hints of vanilla...and...uh...the aroma is great much more complex than my description. flavor great balance of sweet and sour. tart cherry slightly floral pear vanilla and something slightly musty. finish lasting medium dry tart cherry vanilla and pear. the finish is just a bit too sweet for my taste. great lively champagne like refreshing carbonation. A very nice beer. This would be great with dessert.

Bottle. Appearance: Dark ruby red and clear, with a thick fluffy cream colored foam cap. Aroma: Lactic acid aroma, vinegar, light maltiness, hint of dark cherries Taste: Rich, sweet maltiness with dark fruit and cherry notes, earthy, leather, and a sharp, acidic tartness from the lactic acid. Mouthfeel: Medium body with an extremely high carbonation. Finish: Carbonation really pops on the finish, with lingering malt sweetness and acidic tartness. Overall: A true world class Flanders red, with a well balanced malt base against the sharp acidity and carbonation

KraftowyJakup (488) - POLAND - APR 7, 2017
Wygląda ładnie, ciemnorubinowe, klarowne. W aromacie sporo octu, owoce, słodkie jabłko i wiśnia. W smaku dochodzi trochę szarlotki i wręcz dżemu z czerwonych owoców, słodkie wino, ocet uderza po gardle. Lekki zawód.

Achel (487) - Ioannina, GREECE - AUG 16, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2015 This beer has an obvious vinegar-like acetic acid twang to it, and you’ll never forget the taste. Clear red brown coloured with an off white head. Aroma of red wine and wood with some sweetness. flavour of wood, wine and balsamic vinegar

Plum and dough congeal in the nose, dark garnet with minimal head. THICK dark plums, raison bread, rum cake, and oak. Finishes with more woody notes and sweet.
