750 ml. thanks semich. pours intense, dark brown, but with a ruby-garnet glimmer. adequate lacing. typical sour ale nose. tart fruit, smooth yet silky. a bit of underlying raspberry fruit and currants on the tail end. taste? fruit follows onto the flavor and into the finish to coat the palate, both on the sides and the front end. sweet, ripe fruits, a healthy dose of carbonation (reminiscent of champagne), and a lighter dose of yeast. on the palate, it’s velvety, yet extremely smooth. excellent for the style. it’s one to savor.

aroma: acid, acetic, malty apparenza: brown, cloudy, minimal head, gusto: heavily sour, lightly bitter, medium sweetness, palato: medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, long finish, prima flemish dopo la petrus oud bruine..l’ho assaggiata dopo la petrus quindi, da quello che ho potuto percepire questa birra è molto più acetica rispetto alla prima ma è l’aceto che è diverso..li era astringente mentre qui è dolce,sembra quasi di bere aceto balsamico..frizzantezza bassa,corpo medio rispetto alla precedente,malto lievemente presente,luppolo non pervenuto..a lungo andare stanca ma va provata! bevuta all’elfo

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.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2005
(Bottle, ABS drinks) Dark brown colour, little slowly diminishing beige head, no lacing. Lots of acid bubbles. Aroma of orange peels, hops, spices, light alcohol, sweet fruits, light raisin, cherries, soap. Sour, spicy and sweet taste. Flavour of fruits (cherry) and wood. Vivid mouthfeel, almost like cola blended with alcohol. Some sweet and not too harsh maltiness in the finish.

Well, you can tell it's a sour from the vinegary aroma. Looks appealing to drink with it's dark nut brown colour tinged with ruby. Nice head that fades to lacing. I'm drinking it from a Chimay glass (heresy!) and it certainly packs a punch with me. It's a good sour with plenty of sweetness to offset it. Bit of cherry in there too. Knew I'd like this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

aumax1 (303) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
Bière de 330 ml en bouteille. Arôme de raisin style vin très puissante. Goût. pétillant au bout de la langue avec une acidité bien présente.

jh773 (303) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2014
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.

cinek (303) - 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
