25cl bottle at Alquitara. Rubi colour with a good formation of an off-white head with a good duration. Aroma is fruity, with apple notes, sourish. Flavour has apple notes with mild caraelish notes and candy sugar and wood. The final is fruity and dry. Carbonation and body are medium.

Fruit, especially cherry in the aroma. Flavors starts sweet and finishes sour, with some vanilla and cherry cough medicine flavors. Not my favorite style, but this is pretty good.

mile (3873) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, vinous and sweetish aroma, fruitiness - dark fruits, some sourness and light vanilla/oak. Body is medium, vinous and sweetish flavor, fruitiness - dark fruits, some sourness. Finish is average, vinous and lightly sweetish, dark fruits and some vinegar sourness, faint oak. Really nice sour ale although quite sweet. Sourness goes well along the body and sweetness.

Color reminds me of grade B maple syrup - slightly ruby-colored. Off-white head with larger, coarse bubbles that slide off of the sides of the glass. Balsamic and something peppery on the nose with a fleeting woody character. As it warms, the archetypal grass and "funky" smell begins to develop but never really gains an unpleasant strength. Tastes lightly of balsamic. Tart but very refreshing. Flavor is not overpowering like some other Flemish sours I have had. A bit of unripe berry flavor and some kind of grape or red wine character. Sweet aftertaste that fades quickly. Mouthfeel is good - just enough carbonation to give it a bite and the beer does not "cling" to the tongue at all. Personally, I liked it best below the recommended temperature range. 35F-40F makes for a very crisp taste and muted sweetness while still giving you that up-front sour vinegar character. I would recommend this as a gateway for introducing people to this style of ale. Very nice!

Red-brownish color. Great ballanced between sourness and sweetness - hints of berries - maybe cherries. Easy drinkable beer, too sweet/sour for me.

Bottle 25cl. Red, almost brown with almost no top. Sour, fruity aroma. Taste has lots of fruits. Sweetness and sourness take turns. Good one!

Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - JAN 10, 2015
A very sweet and malty aroma with a hint of tartness come from this deep ruby red brew with a light brown head. Tart with a bit of underlying sweetness come with this medium bodied brew with big carb bubbles.
