Wischylini (297) - Grimstad, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2017
Appearance Pours a clear brownish red with a small off-white head
Aroma Malty, vinous, balsamic vinegar, cranberries, cherries, grape, acetone, and hints of oaken barrels and spices
Taste Sweet, with a mild sourness
Palate Medium body, with high carbonation
Overall Pretty good, but the acetone is a bit too over-pronounced

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.

DomD (294) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
Poured from bottle. Sour aroma of what I can not tell. Pours a dark brown with slightly off white head. Heavy sour taste. Medium body. Very sour, not really my type of beer.

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!!

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.

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.

Bouteille achete la SAQ. Bire de couleur acajou avec un lger collet blanc. Dgage de multiples armes, cerisier ( la fois les cerises et le bois), vinaigre balsamique, rhum, sucre. En bouche lacidit est frappante, un gote le balsamique et les cerises... lgrement boise. Laisse un arrire-got trs sucre! Son seul dfaut mon avis est quelle manque un tout petit peu de corps... trop sirupeuse mon coup, je laurais aim plus lourde. Sinon, cest vraiment un type de bire que japprcie, on en a pas encore daussi bonnes au Qubec :)

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2006
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.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2014 Transparent, dark ruby-brown, plenty of bubbles. Smells exactly like red wine (leathery tannins, fermented grapes). Taste is slightly sweet, balsamic vinaigrette; sourness builds up as you keep sipping, I recommend sharing with a friend. Crisp, fizzy palate.
