Sweet and sour with some oak, wine and sour cherry flavours very prominent but at the same time well balanced and subtle. Excellent.

FinnIckler (363) - GERMANY - MAR 27, 2017
Bottle. Pours Very dark red. Nose is cherry, sherry, pudding, fudge. Heavily carbonated. Palate is cherry, Joghurt, berries. Finish is sour and fruity. Reminds me of cherry Joghurt and my Joghurt eating days. A. It too carbonated, but still great.

sfuen03 (362) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 11, 2014
Pours dark brown with a dark, average sized head. Aroma of cherry, pollen, rotten fruit. Nice and fresh mouthfeel, with medium carbonation. Taste is like lambic beers, very intense, with high sourness and sweetness, leaves a fresh finish.

Ambro206 (362) - ITALY - MAR 15, 2016
Birra interessante ma esageratamente addomesticata per il grande pubblico. Al naso caratteri interessanti con un leggero profilo di cuoio e stalla che fa capolino nella generale dolcezza di ciliegie e lamponi. In bocca si apre con un profilo decisamente dolce seguito da note citriche, lime, con finale lungo e leggermente vinoso. In generale il bilanciamento troppo sbilanciato sulla dolcezza andando a coprire tutte le note complesse e intriganti della fermentazione selvaggia. Corpo medio robusto carbonatazione scarsa e sensazione rotonda ed appagante in bocca.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2005 250ml bottle in Duchesse de Bourgogne glass. Smells of cherry and grapes, and the usual malt, grains et cetera. Dark red. Yellowy foam. Not that sour, almost like a kriek. Hm, its nice but too weak.

(Dgust avec french tickler) Une biere brune ambr avec un collet tres collant. Odeur de cerises, dalcohol, senteut tres sure. Gout sucr, avec banane et alcohol, je dirais meme porto. On dirat un espece de gout medicamenteux. Une bonne biere agreable.

y0cola (361) - fremont, California, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Sour cherry, whiskey, and fresh grape wine aroma. Translucent dark brown color. Highly carbonated which stings your tongue and leaves a tart bitter finish which follows the very winey, vinegar, and malty flavor. Flavor also hints at tomatoes and a very woody whiskey. Lacks slightly in the assertiveness of the flavor.

Anova167 (360) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Pours deep ruby red with a tight white head that dissipates quickly. I have had this several times and this batch has a more vinegary aroma than others. Flavor is so unique. Not the most tart, but it comes on a bit after the initial sweetness. Flavor is very comPlex and hard for my untrained pallet to breakdown. Pairs nicely with this Bayley Hazen blue cheese as well.

Deep, deep mahogany color. Fruity aroma. Huge flavor. A bit of maltiness. Slightly sweet. Strong tartness on the back of my tongue. Wonderful blend of flavors. Slight oakiness. Possibly a touch of barnyard but it tastes like lactic/pedio dominates the funk. Excellent beer!
