Ambro206 (364) - ITALY - MAR 15, 2016
Birra interessante ma esageratamente addomesticata per il grande pubblico. Al naso caratteri interessanti con un leggero profilo di cuoio e stalla che fa capolino nella generale dolcezza di ciliegie e lamponi. In bocca si apre con un profilo decisamente dolce seguito da note citriche, lime, con finale lungo e leggermente vinoso. In generale il bilanciamento é troppo sbilanciato sulla dolcezza andando a coprire tutte le note complesse e intriganti della fermentazione selvaggia. Corpo medio robusto carbonatazione scarsa e sensazione rotonda ed appagante in bocca.

Bottle. Pours dark red, cherry like color with brownish long-lasting head. Aroma of chocolate and dark fruits with brett character after 1 or so chocolate smell disappeared. Dominant taste is reminding me of cherries with porto and vinegar. Also some spicy and oak character is present. Maybe too sweet. No hop bitterness. Really spicy finish. Overall: nice one., but it would be better if it has more balance between sourness and sweetness. In my opinion, it is little bit too sweet. But still good beer.

sfuen03 (363) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 11, 2014
Pours dark brown with a dark, average sized head. Aroma of cherry, pollen, rotten fruit. Nice and fresh mouthfeel, with medium carbonation. Taste is like lambic beers, very intense, with high sourness and sweetness, leaves a fresh finish.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Draught. Reddish burgundy hue, raspberry with slight yeast aroma. Sour, fruity and wheat notes. tart finish. Fairly complex. My first flemish sour. Very good.

Wischylini (363) - Praha, CZECH REPUBLIC - 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

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2005 250ml bottle in Duchesse de Bourgogne glass. Smells of cherry and grapes, and the usual malt, grains et cetera. Dark red. Yellowy foam. Not that sour, almost like a kriek. Hm, it’s nice but too weak.

mwsf (361) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 4, 2003
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!

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2008
(Dégusté avec french tickler) Une biere brune ambré avec un collet tres collant. Odeur de cerises, d’alcohol, senteut tres sure. Gout sucré, avec banane et alcohol, je dirais meme porto. On dirat un espece de gout medicamenteux. Une bonne biere agreable.

y0cola (361) - fremont, California, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Sour cherry, whiskey, and fresh grape wine aroma. Translucent dark brown color. Highly carbonated which stings your tongue and leaves a tart bitter finish which follows the very winey, vinegar, and malty flavor. Flavor also hints at tomatoes and a very woody whiskey. Lacks slightly in the assertiveness of the flavor.

3.7
Maersk (361) - MOLDOVA - DEC 30, 2016
Dark brown, small brown, some carbonation. Smells aceton, berries, candy. Refreshing, tastes burberry, some aceton (which is surprisingly gentle and is intact with the beer, thus a plus), low sourness. Very good.
