Sour and fruity. Very good to have now and then, but not often..............

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.

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.

I'm a big fan of this style and have enjoyed this one in the past. Just got a 75Cl bottle though and it tastes like they have returned to sweeteners. Keep it sour!!

A very nice looking flemish, with a a murky burgundy color and a reasonable head. Nose was quite unique, as was the flavor. Very reminiscient of REAL cherries, as opposed to the candy or sweet cherry flavors you sometimes get in beers. An odd beer, even for the style.

A little too sweet for what I'm used to with a good Flemish Sour. However, the aroma is nice and tart and of cherries. I need to be making an ugly face in order to prove that an ale is sour enough, and this just doesn't do it.

Deep Mahogany with a long lasting beiege head. Tart cherry aroma with a pronounced vinegar note. Pleasant taste of tart sour cherries, with some malt and oak notes as well.

Just add some olive oil and you’ll have a nice balsamic salad dressing. Dark cherry after taste. A bit too sweet for my liking. Does get better towards the bottom of the bottle.

Pours a deep red/brown color with an off white head. The head diminished almost immediately and left a thin sticky lace. The aroma is tart and more like wine than beer -- cider vinegar smell. The taste is tart like a cider. The mouthfeel was somewhat complex: tart at the beginning with a dry middle and an astringent finish. I have had this beer a couple of times. It does not appear to bee a good representation of the style, but a style of itself. An interesting experience.
