Carlus12 (361) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2007
Cask @ Lowlander, London. Pours murky reddish brown. Very thin head. Aroma is dark fruits / raisins & cherry. Taste is sour fruits and malts. Interesting and a little different.

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!

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.

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!

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - NOV 16, 2011
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.

Odeur forte de vinaigre..Belle couleur mais pas de mousse. Goût fort acide, et goût de vinaigre bien prononcé. Bière originale.

HansJM (358) - NORWAY - DEC 4, 2001
A very fruity start. Rabsberry-aroma. Some sweet-sour taste in the middle. Good, dry finish. Well balanced. A very good beer.

Strong sour apple smell with some funk. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a thick persistent buff head with tight bubbles. Big sour flavors of turpentine, floral notes with some balancing sweetness. A lingering finish, medium carbonation and dry mouthfeel. Really interesting.

Mrnoluv (354) - long beach, California, USA - DEC 24, 2016
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.
