Un intenso colore bruno velato con riflessi rubino è accompagnato da una corposa schiuma nocciola. L'aceto di mele pervade immediatamente il naso insieme ad un dolce sentore di porto e frutti rossi. In bocca è agrodolce con un finale secco e legnoso. L'alta carbonazione e il corpo medio la rendono più agile nella bevuta.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2016 Piana ładna karmelowa, redukujaca sie do małej obwdki przy szkle. Kolor piwa ciemna miedź w brąz, klarowne. W aromacie praktycznie wino a wiec winogrono, kwas, siarka. Bardzo moocno wysycone, az piekace w przełyk. Pełne ale bardzo orzeźwiajace. Bardzo kwasne. Znowu winogrono, wiśnia, a na końcu pozostaje prawie nie wyczuwalna, delikatna goryczka.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2016 Framboosazijn en balsamico in de neus. Deze zetten zich voort in de smaak. Afdronk blijft matig hangen. Leuk zuur, maar net iets te zoet om een echte topper te zijn.

An excellent and delicious example of this style. Yes it is red, and sour and a little sweet. It has depth and character and lingers on the palatte wonderfully.

Draft. Green Dragon. A wonderful belgian ale. Poured in appropiate brewery glass. Notes of tartness but finishes with slight sweetness. WOW!

Bellaspetto tonaca di frate con riflessi rosso/ramati, schiuma ocra abbastanza persistente. Naso vinoso, acido, con frutti rossi in evidenza. Bocca abboccata, acida, con un corpo medio e una live chiusura amara..... Buona......

Unique and legendary beer, with aroma of cherries, vanilla, grapes and almonds. Dark red/ruby, small head. Sweet and sour at the same time, a bit like sweet red wine. This beer is a must for every beer geek!

Uma cerveja diferente com muita personalidade. Era cético em relação ao estilo mas a surpresa do primeiro gole, mantém-se até o final.

Very interesting beer. Reminds me of the more acidic of the Lambics. Pretty balanced flavor I could best describe as sweet-tart. Sharp carbonation similar to other Belgians. I would definitely drink this again.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2006 Bottle. Brilliant reddish color, extremely clear, thick light tan head that last. Aroma is sour with a fair amount of dark fruit--cherries and plums, and perhaps a touch of smokiness. Body is medium. Well balanced between malt and sourness. A light sweetness upfront, followed by a significant sourness that last into the finish. Dark fruits are there and again, a hint of smokey character. Overall, fantastic beer if you like sour beers (and I do!). The sourness is significant enough to be a key part of the beer, but there is enough balance to make it fairly easy to drink. I love it.
