Beautiful. Smells of cherries and red berries. Pours a wonderfully dark brown color with a minute head. It does have some wine characteristics but the traditional slight sourness is wonderful

matbli (299) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 5, 2015
Bottle 750ml, pours clear brown with small white head, that lasts for quite a long time. Aroma of grapes, white wine, honey, vinegar, raisins and some delicate barnyard. In taste high sourness followed by heavy sweetness. No bitterness at all. IMO sweetness is a to high, but still it?s easy drinkable. Very fruity but when drinking for a longer time it starts being very insipid. Good beer but more than 300ml is to much.

nazbion (298) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JUN 3, 2016
Pours hazy ruby brown with beige head. Aroma of red vinegar, nuts, some dark fruits. Taste is sour and sweet, balanced. Medium body, soft carbonation, easy drinking. Great!

Had this on tap a few times at the Stumbling Monk in Capitol Hill, Seattle. Just an incredible beer. Very fruity. Sour without being overpowering. The color is gorgeous on it too.

RomanW70 (296) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - APR 4, 2008
Pours dark reddish brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma a combination of sweet and sour cherries. Very sweet up front, flowing into a mild sour and finishing smooth with a slight vineous tartness. Med-low carbonation. Medium mouthfeel. Good beer, bit would like to see more sweet/sour balance. A little heavy on the sweet side.

Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2008
Presents red/copper with a nice, off white head. Nose shows raspberry, balsamic vinegar and oak. Palate has sweet malt that brings caramelised berries before the oak kicks into gear and delivers a dry, salty mustiness with almond and marzipan and afterthought. Finishes with balanced, slightly tart acidity. Classic!!

branspra (293) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with medium-sized off-white head. Excellent lacing. Aromas of strong fruit, mainly pears and grapes. Another aroma exists and I cannot tell you what it is, but it smells sweet and I like it. Tastes like port or wine, with a very sweet taste and little carbonation. Texture is oily and sticky. Very strange beer, but I have to say that I somewhat enjoy it.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2002
Mahogny body with a tan head. Sweet nose with a hint of maltiness. Very sour then tart flavor. No hops in the taste or aroma. I would drink again without a twist of the arm.

Poured from a 750ml bottle a deep mahogany with a very nice tan head and left great lacing. Aroma reminded me of black cherries, it had a vinous aroma, and a bit of apple cider vinager mixed in. Initial mouth feel is full of carbonation almost like drinking a brut champange. Flavor was like a cherry sweettart. It started out tart then in the finish you get the sweetness. I will drink more of this one.
