Wow, a nice fruity beer. Bought @ the beerkoning Amsterdam. Dark red/amber color. Fruity taste like grapes etc. Very nice

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...

Bottle. Dark brown body, small off white head. Heavy sweet malty aroma. Way too sweet flavour. There is some complexity here, but I don’t whish to explore it further. (Brüssel (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.

Bière brune de 6.2 % d’alcool. Rougeâtre. Petit col au versement, elle possède un odorat de vin en bouteille. On goûte des fruits, des mûres et des cerises noires, du genre « cooler ». Excellente et rafraîchissante !

Speko (414) - DENMARK - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle 0,25. Pours dark brown and redish with large off-white head. Aroma of cherries, vinegar, malts, berries. Taste is cherries, red berries, malts, hint of oak and tobacco. Sour at first but with some sweetness taking slowly over. Reminds somewhat of red lemonade. Interesting mix of sweet and sour. Medium body and soft carbonation.

f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2007
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.

veronika (410) - SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2005
Black, with a creamcolored head. Aroma from grapes, plums and some alcohol. Floral grapefruit flavor, red wine, fruyits, juniperberry, some cinnamon and with a sweet finish. Different and a bit hard to define.

mkam (409) - POLAND - APR 10, 2014
On draught at Ministerstwo Browaru Pub, Poznań. Pours in dark ruby color, medium, white head. In aroma berries, wine notes and also wooden and sour notes. In taste red fruits notes, wooden and vanilla notes. Ends is sourish. Medium carbonation, little bitterness. Very good beer that tastes like not a beer. Something everyone has to taste.

seynie (408) - 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.
