Edgy Belgium. Good lace. Foamy pour, fluffy. Sweet aftertaste. Oak lends a brown to the amber. Some cherry tartness here, maybe sour lemon and unripe fruit, and oud bruin style. And as Monty Python would add, woody. thewolf (12949) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Den Tatoverede Enke, Cph.Pinball (12626) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2008
Pours a wonderful, deep, deep mahogany with a small creamy beige head that leaves brilliant lacings. Aroma is absolutely sublime, some sweetness, light toffee, weak berries, funkiness, brett, caramel and lightly roasted - stunningly composed. Low to medium carbonation - quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour starts off rather sweet with a good dose of maltiness (having the beer too cold resulted in some unwanted metallic off-flavours, though they disappeared as it heated up). A nice fruity tartness balances very well with the sweetness. Is this the Goudenband II? There is hard roasted oakiness and malt at the finish in the aftertaste. Still stunning.
looks, red light brown head,
flavor is sour, raspberries, strawberries. very nice for a sour beer. (first one i tasted which was not sour due to infection, was much better than the bad ones) deyholla (12590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Pours dark red with a pinkish head. Aroma is full of all types of fruit, berries and plums mainly with sour undertones. Starts off sour and builds to a sweet aftertaste. A little sweet for me but not bad. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2008
11.2oz bottle-pours a foamy tan head and deep ruby red color. Aroma is dark fermented fruit-raisin, cherry, medium malt. Taste is dark fermented fruit-raisin, cherry, secondary medium/dark malt, syrupy, some spicy (hops). Kind of a spice lambic. Good effervescence.

250 ml bottle. From Germany (bierkompass.de). Shared w/ Brandman.madsberg (11799) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2002
Dark red colour with small off-white head.
Interesting sour aroma with wine, portwine and maybe calvados (?).
Sweetish fruity flavour with caramel desert, sour fruits. Well balanced and delicious.
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 On Tap: Dark ruby colour with medium lasting head. Fabulous mix of sweetness and sourness makes this a highly drinkable beer. Last long in the aftertaste and the mouth calls for more. Had it as a aperitif to a 4 course beer menu. Excellent Meilby (11791) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle 330ml @ Patricks Pub og Restaurant, Kristiansandshrubber85 (11710) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Pours brown/deep amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, sour apples, fruits, balsamic and brown sugar. Taste is medium sweet and medium sour with a long sweet, fruity, light sour and dry finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
Bottle. Dried cherry / fruit wine aroma. Light reddish brown color with small head. A very nice sweet-tart dark cherry flavor - very much like a fruit wine. Great taste and easy to drink. 77ships (11482) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2011

: bright, shinny red with a small white head that leaves minor lacing, smells funky with hints of vinegar, cherries & oak, the special aging & blending has given this an incredibly fruity taste, it is heavy on cherries with green apples & lemon, oak, wood chip flavours, mildly tart, some funk, wine-like qualities, perfect amount of sour in the aftertaste, simply amazing brew, dry finish, insanely drinkable, I was trying to savour it but it is nearly impossible not to chug this all down at once
