Very nice, although not up to the standards of Rodenbach. Sweet and sour without leaving beer territory.

Clear, dark ruby-red beer, with a nice cloud-like fluffy layer of foam. A sour, vinegar-like aroma. The sourness moves on into the taste. Very much like a "krieken-lambiek", but without the final touch. Nice sour aftertaste. helder, donker, robijnkleurig bier, met een mooie, lichtbruine "fluffy" schuimkraag. Zurig aroma zoals van azijn. Het zurige gaat zeker door in de smaak, wat erg lijkt op een Krieken-lambiek, maar dan ontbreekt eigenlijk de "final touch". Lekkere zure nasmaak!

Bottle 750ml, pours clear brown with small white head, that lasts for quite a long time. Aroma of grapes, white wine, honey, vinegar, raisins and some delicate barnyard. In taste high sourness followed by heavy sweetness. No bitterness at all. IMO sweetness is a to high, but still it?s easy drinkable. Very fruity but when drinking for a longer time it starts being very insipid. Good beer but more than 300ml is to much.

On tap at Town Hall Brewery in Minneapolis. I thought it was great in bottle but on tap...wow. Brownish red pour with a small off white head. Over ripe or sour cherry aroma with something else there as well. The taste is dark fruit with earth and cherry tart as well. This is wonderful.

Appearance is identical to chery pepsi. Nose is malt vinegar and charred oak. Flavours is cola sweet with marachino cherries and cabernet franc grapes. As it warms a horse hair appears with more fruit flavours, namely raspberry and cassis.

DerGantzel (445) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2015
Fruity, berry and brown sugar aroma. Dark red clear liquid, white-brown head. Well balanced high sweetness and sourness. Bitter-sweet finish, soft carbonation. One of the best in its style!

VinegarStroke (441) - 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.

11.2oz Bottle. Appearance is brownish color with red hue with medieum silky, off-white head. Aroma is vinegar and fruit. Taste is tart at the outset with plenty of sour and earthen funk before fading into a constellation of fruit flavors including cherry and raspberry. Palate is medium-bodied, smooth texture, soft carbonation, and a tart finish.

clearly my palate isn’t evolved enough to appreciate this. deep ruby with almost no head. smells of old cheap red wine, with a hint of pepper. tastes very sour (as i assume it’s supposed to) to the point of almost wanting to spit it out. one the second sip there were hints of cherry and sour apples. palate was pretty good if a little thin. maybe i need to sit by a fire and sip at this next time. keg - old bell , harrogate
