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.

Aroma is cherry, fruity but solid oak backbone. Looks brown red in the glass. Little head. Taste is like aroma. Palate is a bit light and watery. Carbonation is not very smooth. I like this as a sour beer before the sour thing started: it’s tart but the focus is on a balanced beer not an oh my god gimmky sour its so tart crap fest.

What can you say but Mmmmmm. Pours with a very thick, fluffy tan head that breaks down to leave lacing. Brown opaque colour. Smells? Must, green apple, mild metallic tang of the yeast. Taste? Crazy good. sour grapes, rather high on the sweetness which balances the sour, malts tend toward the subtle. Might not be a very session-able beer, but perfection on a patio in a tulip glass. Damn good beer that I can’t get here. Thanks LCBO you suck.

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 !

This beer poured a dark brown color w/ slight head and lacing. The aroma had soury light fermented fruit, apples, and grapes w/ a light raisin sweetness. The flavor had soury fermented light fruit, apples, candy and grapes. The mouthfeel was light to medium bodied and creamy.

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...

330ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a deep ruby brown colour with a small head that reduces into a ring. I get fruity notes on the nose. Aromas of rhubarb, raspberries,, dark cherries and oak. Complex fruity taste matches the aroma. Sweet up front and finishes with a well balanced sour finish. Best sour I’ve had so far.

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)
