75cl bottle from Beautiful Beers. Pours a bit murky red-brown. Very small head which disappears quickly. Scent of sweet red fruits. Nice sense on tongue with good balance of sweetness/fruitiness and bitterness, if a little over-sweet for me. Prefer the Rodenbach. Good beer though.

Bold, sharp, vinegar smell as you pour. To get the full aroma of this beer, put the beer in the back of my mouth and dance the smell in the back of your nose. Sweet carbonated, licorice tickle as you put it down. Gentle, warm, clean finish.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2012 Pours a dark red colour with little to no head. Aroma of cherries and something sour. Flavour is cherries, wood, barnyard and some sitrus in the aftertaste. Sweet aftertaste. A fine beer that i often drink.

Still my favorite sour ale that I’ve tried. Has strong cherry flavor, and hints of bitterness and citrus, somewhat sawdusty too.

Poured on draft. Pours a brown to amber color with a thin, greyish head of foam. In the aroma I get a fruitt sourness. Maybe some raspberries or cherries. In the taste I get a green apple presences with some wine type vinous notes. Finish is drying and sour.

SimonRoller (390) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle, pours hazy red/brown with medium brown head. Aroma is very interesting with cherries, sweet figs and oak. Taste also has cherries, sweet figs and oak. But also "red applepie" and some slightly weird aftertaste of blood/iron. High sweetness, low to none bitterness and medium sourness. Very different and interesting beer but maybe not something I would like to have everyday. Slightly offputting but still nice and interesting at the same time......

Great sour ale that packed a punch with the fruity smell and taste. Slight woody notes mixed in with the sour fruits. Very nice.

Thick dark brown pour from a bottle. A good sour but a touch too sweet for my taste.

750 ml bottle to oversized snifter. Looks solid; a semi-transparent amber-brown with low carbonation and off-white lacing. Smells decent; sweet, sour, apple cider vinegar. Tastes like it smells, only better, with good balance. Good on the palate too. Nice.
