Bottle. Color is dark ruby red, small head. Aroma of acetone, wild cherry, alcohol, vinegar. Sweet sour taste, wild cherries, vinegar, alcohol. plums, spicy finish. Full body. Without a doubt a very interesting beer but Im not sure vinegar in such quantities is my thing.

2009.01.11 - From Bottle. Im a fan of sour ales and found this one to be a welcome departure from the norm. The smell is tart fruits with malts, a very pleasant aroma. Color is reddish-brown (more brown) with little foaming and good lacing. I expected a bit more tartness when I tasted it, but it ends with a sweetness that was quite unexpected. The more I got into it, the more I enjoyed it. Though a bit more sourness would have been a welcome addition. In all, a very strong beer, and Im glad I picked it up.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2011
Pours a dark red colour, head is small and off-white. Aroma of ripe fruits and maybe some berries. Sourness dominates the taste, but theres enough sweetness to not make it overpowering. (Bottle, 33cl)

falco242 (395) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 Has a bland aroma that I cant put my finger on but otherwise delicious taste. Varies from most sours in that cherry isn?t the defining flavor but good sour balance overall.

seynie (395) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2014 Dark brown, almost no head. Red fruits, malt, some sour but not as much as Rodenbach. There is more of a creamy sweetness to this beer. Finish has the fruity sweetness, and a mildly sour dryness.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - SEP 30, 2007
Draft @ BSP. Pours a deep garnet red with lingering lacing thin head. nose of sour cherries, oakiness, smoke, some dry malts, palate extremely well balanced between flemish sourness and woody malt sweetness. Probably the most tasteful flemish sour Ive tried, way less acetic than others.
