Bottle. Deep reddish brown with offwhite head. Sweet and sour nose of red wine vinegar and tart cherries. Flavor is mostly cherry sweetness over a nice tart background. Not nearly as sour as the nose implies, which is disappointing. Not overly sweet, just not terribly complex. Tasty stuff.

Amber kleurig bier met een kleine crème kleurige schuimkraag. Aroma: balsamico, kersen en wat zoete mout. Smaak: balsamico, kersen, vanille en eiken.

A very fruity start. Rabsberry-aroma. Some sweet-sour taste in the middle. Good, dry finish. Well balanced. A very good beer.

11.2 oz bottle Rock On Third Royal Oak, MI. I had this while I watched Detroit beat Chicago into the hockey history books. It poured a dark brownish with an off white head. And I can’t remember the last time I was this pleasantly surprised with a beer. I got this on a whim, never having heard of it, and it was amazing. Sour and sweet notes dominate the flavor, with some hints of granny smith apple on the finish. Amazing. cheers!

Bottle at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a dark ruby, small whiteish head. Aroma of sour berries, grapes with a slightly vinegary quality. Taste is sour, with wine-like and raspberry notes. Tart but quite sweet as well, nicely balanced. Not quite as good as a Cantillon-spec lambic, but still very nice indeed.

on tap at beachwood bbq... I have had alot of variation on this beer...some bottles are sweeter and some are more sour.....but I am reviewing this on tap...... good sweet and sour nose....not as complex as some flanders reds..... taste is sweet and sour but not as sour as I like in my flanders reds r

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Tap at Selkirk Abbey. Dark mahogany brown w beige head. Smell is aged wood, earth, with dried fruits. Flavor, although rather sweet, is refined, somewhat delicate, aged dried cherries, mellow malt, and a pleasant sourness.

gorkogrlo (353) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark red, cherry like color with brownish long-lasting head. Aroma of chocolate and dark fruits with brett character after 1 or so chocolate smell disappeared. Dominant taste is reminding me of cherries with porto and vinegar. Also some spicy and oak character is present. Maybe too sweet. No hop bitterness. Really spicy finish. Overall: nice one., but it would be better if it has more balance between sourness and sweetness. In my opinion, it is little bit too sweet. But still good beer.

A beautiful plum color, there is a sweet vinegar smell to the beer, the taste, as a slight equal sour/sweetness to it, but that vinegar background is incredible. This beer is the prefect match between sweet and sour, one of the best beers I have had! Great beer.

kosko20 (352) - Bemidji, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Pours a gold brown with minimal head and lace. Aroma is cherries, raspberry, tart, funk and barn. Flavor is just a faint tart and sour. Palate isn’t as crisp and bubbly as I like sours, its pretty flat.
