RB BE #400: 25 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden amber to deep maghoni with a creamy/crispy light brown head. Cherry fruity, light woody and dried fruity aroma. Flavourful, slight woody, dried fruity yet fresh from the cherries. Sweet, yet not overly so. Finish holds a nice dryish and very controlled sour note to a distinct fruity note.

A red brown beer with a beutiful light brown head. The aroma is sour with notes of overripe fruits. The flavor is lovely sweet and sour with notes of overripe cherries and a sourness that draws the mouthwater and with a nice woody dry end. joergen (27970) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005

A deep red beer with a fine beige head. The aroma is very sweet like over-ripe grapes and plums. The flavor is dry and sour with hints of sweetness. It is very acidic - almost like a gueze with notes of wood and plums. A very lovely beer.
Red coloured with an off white head.
Aroma of vinegar with notes of wood.
Flavour of fruits and wood with notes of vinegar. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2006
Bottled. Dark amber coloured, small beige head. Sour grape and cherry aroma, almost red-wineish. Flavour is sour grapefruit, cherry, apple and some vanilla. Almost like a more sour Madeira-wine. Some wooden hints also all the way through as it gets warmer. Redwineish aftertaste. Wellbalanced, but sadly a quite thin palate.

Bottle. Reddish brown colour with a thick longlasting tan head. Malty aroma and sour. Malty flavor with a tart fruitiness. Sweet sour finish. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Reddish brown with a pretty, tall head that sticks to the glass. The tartness comes first - almost vinous - to be relieved by an almost sticky sweetness. OK balance though. A genuine Flemish sour to the sweet side. 210599omhper (24963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2007

(Bottle 25 cl) Clear, brown beer with more than just a touch of red. Huge, brownish head. Woody, oaky notes with some sweet, roasted malt. But everything is pretty much flushed away by the extreme sourness that makes for one of the most quenching and sour of sour ales. Not the usual metallic edge here. 030498
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Deep ruby, almost clear, airy head. Tart aroma of black cherries. Intensely citric with notes of wood. Light bodied with spritzy mouthfeel and lots of freshening acidity. Lightly earthy with notes of blueberries and tart cherries. Excellent! madmitch76 (24360) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
23rd July 2008. Clear dark red brown beer. Slightly sour in the Duchesse Du Bourgogne mode but this is tamer and much sweeter. Sweet and sour semi dry finish with some coca cola flavours. Refreshing. Travlr (24277) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle at Brickskeller, shared with Collin. Dark brown, small beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, plums, etc. Taste is oak, sourballs, toffee. Somewhat reminiscent of the old Rodenbach before they sold out. Nice.
