UPDATED: JUN 25, 2005 Confident balsamic vinegar effluviums intrigue...Eating cherries in the sunset...A woody breeze lifts the hints of vanilla and oak...Cheese and caramel hover over the vinosity...This is less fruity though than the Mestreechs Aajt...I used to watch them dance and glitter like a fireworks display, but sometimes that balsamic vinegar keeps blocking the view...A quite variable beer... stic (109) - Oostende, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2002
Not a bad beer. A better version of Rodenbach. Fruity, sweety, some cherries and a sour aftertaste. Drinkingdan (375) - East Norriton, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2002
Sour and fruity. Very good to have now and then, but not often. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - NOV 1, 2002
Sampled on tap 10/22/02. Woody, herbal, red wine and sour aroma, along with some definite vinegar, cherry and, eventually, a hint of vanilla(?!). Very slight head this beer has, just a slight haze and ring of off-white foam. Medium to dark garnet in color. Sharp and acidic in character, but quickly turning to fruity and lightly sweet, with a bit of tangy cherry becoming evident. Finish moves from initial tartness to a light, fruity sweetness with some faint, dry, musty hop flavors. Fairly light bodied. Palate is smooth and has a decided lack of effervescence. Mellows as it warms. Enjoyable beer. Drink this one by itself or at least at the start of your session so you can appreciate all that goes on, I think you’ll be glad you did. herbstress3 (221) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2003

this beer is definitely fun!!! winy, vinous aroma. the body looks like a coke or a pepsi without ice. the flavor was entertaining. one person tasted worcershire sauce, one soda, others including myself carbonated red wine. i really enjoyed this beer. the carbonation is just right, medium. the body is just acidic enough to clear the palate nicely. finishes with some dark fruit flavors, plums and some cherries, there is also a cidery aspect to this one, like a hard apple cider. a very nice drink, i think my girlfriend has a new favorite beer. fraternie (1011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2003
Reddish-brown body, thin head. Some sourness in the aroma, notes of cherry, a bit medicinal. Tart cherry malt flavor, very carbonated. Medicinal, acidic finish, but there is some nice sourness and moderate complexity here. urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 13, 2003
It's been so long since I've had one of these Flemish ales. Delicious red wine qualities with snappy sourness and perfect effervescence. Tartness strangely hits me in the back of the throat, which is fun at the beginning, but gets rather irritating as I drink. LINKBREW (101) - Santee, California, USA - JUL 22, 2003
Pours large, lively head, then settles to a light film. Reddish brown color.Smells of oak, caramel and slight vinegar. Tastes a bit sweet, some cherries, with some tartness to go with the acetic. Light body. Refreshingly good for the style. Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - OCT 8, 2003
A lot of carbonation. looked like half flat coke being poured. I couldn't pick out a whole lot out of the sourness. I think i need more of this.
