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.

Deep clear reddy brown with a large tan head that fades to leave a thin constant covering. Aroma is at first vinegar but then there is deffinate cherries and an oaky finish, flavour follows suit with a sweet edge to it but the lovely sour taste dominates - a cracker.

Bottle. Very dark brown with a disappearing off-white head. The aromas of black currant, plums, and fermented cherries draw you in. The flavors are complex like a gueuze and a pucker sour. It’s delectable.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2003
I was wondering if I should rate it for the quality of the beer or for i mutch I liked it. I don't really enjoyed that beer, but I could taste the quality in it. Fruits, wine, and spice give it a sour and sweet taste, but a little too sour for me (maybe later..)Ain't my kind.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 1, 2006
Definitely a unique beer. Smells like berries and red wine. Has a very wine-esque taste with some pleasant sourness. Nice tingling mouthfeel. Tastes almost like a lambic. Very nice.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2005
Sour, somewhat chemical smell. Not really appealing. Neither is the non-existing head. Tastes quite nice however, a bit on the sweet side, like other I expected a more sour beer but it turned out to be fruity (cherries, apples) and sweet.

AROMA: resin, sour berries, mustard? APPEARANCE: amber TASTE: lightly bitter, heavily sour, PALATE: medium body, thin feel, average carbonation, astringent, OVERALL: too sour to be enjoyable.

4.2
falco242 (398) - 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.

This tastes like red wine almost, but smooth and not as thick. I really enjoy it!!
