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.

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.

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.

Bottle. Dark, very dark, red with some brown glimmers, clear, with small, white and very solid head and good lacing. Aroma is full of cherry with some fresh acidic and vinegar notes. Light to medium body, sweet start smoothly becoming a light sour finish and oily and sticky mouth feel. Very good. I can become a fan of sour styles with more stuff like this :-)

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.

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.

cinek (406) - POLAND - NOV 26, 2016
tap/strefa piwa. miedziane z białą, drobnopęcherzykową pianą, która szybko redukuje się do zera. w aromacie woda po ogórkach kiszonych, przejrzałe winogrona, po ogrzaniu zmywacz do paznokci. w smaku początkowo kwaśne, na finiszu wyraźnie słodkie. niestety w posmaku również aceton. trudno się pije nawet 0,3ml

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.

3.8
DutchMark (404) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2016
Good one. Deep dark with a small head. Vinegar on the nose. Flavor is nicely tart with malts and red fruit coming through. There’s a hint of balsamico.
