UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 Flavor is like sour fruit. Taste isn’ t like beer. anyway it is particular Mpuntmuts (370) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2017
Dark clear amber pour. Aroma of caramel malts, balsamic vinegar, dried fruits, fresh berries, caramel/honey sweetness. Medium to over medium sweet and sour. Medium body with medium carbonation. Tasty stuff!! Schroppfy (2362) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2004 Absolutely fascinating aroma, sour yet bready. Beautiful color. Ultimately, a very challenging beer, but I found it a bit too sour (cherry, aged granny smith apple) for me to discern the other taste components. Thin to medium-bodied. I think my palate needs to mature more. hoppyman (34) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2002
Dark-ruby red.Nose full of sour cherry and some notes of balsamic vinegar.Strong taste of sour cherry,cider,raspberry and a moderate metallic finish.Body is a bit thin to my liking .Nonetheless,this beer is not a waste of money and is,in my opinion a decent representation of its style.

Vinegar quality in the nose, almost Worchestershire-like. Beautiful deep tannic color, classy label. Meaty, tart, woody and perhaps a little smokey. Screams for a good chunk of roasted dead beast.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2005 The sharp aroma consists of cherry, raisin, sweet tart, iron, caramel, subtle chocolate, almond extract, light perfume, old books, and glue. This dispays some serious Brussels lace in the tulip. First sip shows acid, simeltaneous tartness-sweetness, oxidation, iron, and a deep grape malt mushiness in the finish. Not as sharp as I prefer, but the palate remained excellent. bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2002
Mahogny body with a tan head.
Sweet nose with a hint of maltiness.
Very sour then tart flavor. No hops in the taste or aroma.
I would drink again without a twist of the arm.

Very nice, although not up to the standards of Rodenbach. Sweet and sour without leaving beer territory. YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2003
Balsamico nose and taste. Brown with hints of red color, leggy. Almost like salad dressing.
