The color is absolutely beautiful, the sour smell wonderful, the taste suprisingly soft and the finnish nicely tart. Up there with rodenbach when it comes to sweet and sour beer, the fruity notes are just beautiful. Why don’t they hype this at all? Goddamn classy bitch of a beer.

12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - JUL 20, 2011
25cl. bottle from a local beer retailer. It pours a clear deep dark red liquid with a small-medium beige spongy head that lasts nicely and leaves some lacing. The aroma (light at first) is mostly fruity (berries), with hints of wood, wine and some wheat. Some brown sugar can also be sensed. A good malty base. It tastes likewise but intenser, reminding a fruit lambic beer with its fruity and candy sugar notes. It is medium sweet and sour; nicely balanced. In the mouth it feels lively carbonated, lambic-style, with a medium body and a long dry and sour finish with an aftertaste of berries and wood, and a touch of bitterness. Nice and original presentation (making it quite clear it is an aged beer) for a very good brew.

Bière brune aux reflets rougeâtres avec un petit collet beige. Arômes légèrement vinaigrées, de tomates vertes. Elle est à la fois sucrée et acidulée, il est possible de goûter des pommes vertes, des raisins, des prûnes et de petits fruits mûres. Plus elle se rapproche de la température pièce, plus des notes de cerises ressortent et elle perd un peu de son acidité.

Unusual dark red color, frothly tan head, no visible carbonation. Definite cherry aroma overpowers any other typical beer smells like malt or hops. Smells like a fruit punch or cranberry cocktail. A bubbly light palate. A definite Kriek beer packed with berry - like cherry . Just like the aroma, the fruit dominates all other things one expects from a beer. No hearty malt, no dry hops. Perhaps good for those who dont enjoy beer - the former Zima crowd and new malt vodka types. Its tart and different, but if your looking for a traditional beer, stay away.

Øllen har et fint mørkt udseende, samt har en frugtig og sød smag. Desuden har øllen en mild skum som egner sig godt til øllen.

Dark brown reddish pour into a sambuca snifter with a half inch head. The aroma is sour, apple cider, and brown sugar. The taste is fruity and sour. The cherry, citrus, raspberry and brown sugar flavors melt perfectly with the 6.2% alcohol. This is the best flemish sour ale that I have had thus far. Kick ass brew.

Acheté à la SAQ, avec une date d’expiration du 27 février 2010. Dégusté dans un verre trappiste de chimay. D’une couleur brun rouge orangé ayant une belle mousse et une bonne carbonation. Senteur de bois, de compote de pomme sûrette, de caramel, de fûmé avec une touche de vanille. Goût de rhubarbe, de pomme grenade, de canneberge, de boisé, de caramel avec un léger goût de cerise avec un peu d’amertume. Une sensation moelleuse, crémeuse avec une longue finition sec et collante.Je l’adore et je vie à chaque fois un moment de plénitude.

Botella. Presencia rojiza con corona blanca poco persistente. Aroma ácido con notas a madera. En boca la acidez es más moderada que el olfato con un toque de cuadra como las gueuze, claras notas de barrica. Muy bebible

On draught, at Deep Ellum, Boston

Just plain awful vinegar aroma. Was surprised at the aroma and unable to get past that. When I held my breath and tasted it, it tasted like a decent Flanders Red, but the aroma was just too powerful. Ordered a full pour, along with 2 other friends. I finished the drink, but will not order another one in future.
