Had this at Birch and Barley in a tumbler glass.
Appearance: light brown with no head or lacing. That is a first.
Smell: Unusually muted although there is a grape character with some vinous notes. Some vinegar and touch of sourness come through.
Taste: tart, vinegary, very grapey, effervescent, musty, touch of malt, red wine, slight funk.
mouthfeel: super smooth and refreshing.
Overall: Solid beer and great thirst quencher. Is it the best tart beer I have had? No. But would definitely drink again if given the opportunity.

330 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy almost red/almost purple. Not much of head, but very wispy and a thin uneven collar.
Smell - Much sharper acidity than the white grape one. A touch of grain and tons of fruitiness.
Taste - Great musty grape flavor. Grainy. Medium tang to it. Better than the other version.
Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Feels kinda light as a result.
Overall - Better fruit flavor and a nice tang to this one. Pretty good.

330 ml bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with about a quarter inch off-white head that fizzled away quickly. Not much lacing at all. Aroma seems a bit weak, it smells like red grapes, cherries, and grainy malt/wheat. The brew tastes like red grapes/wine, tart cherries, raisins, and grainy/wheat malt. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick with moderate carbonation. I think it's an OK brew, but I can't say I was impressed with it. Worth a try once, but I don't think I'd buy it again. $6.49 a bottle.

appearance is a soft bronze/amber color
with an aroma of wine and a touch of alcohol.
taste is a delicious blend of malty sweetness and vine fruit that hits your tongue initially but is followed by lactic tartness quickly. if there is any brett flavor its very subdued.
mouthfeel is dry and crisp but not sharp with very little carbonation.
overall this is not a complex brew but is hugely drinkable and delicious and maintains a great balance. i could consume copius amounts of this in the winter or summer its that good.

I had this one in a served from a 330 ml bottle into a red wine glass, and warmed it with my hands a bit while taking in the aroma before sipping.
Appearance: Cloudy, virtually no head, and no significant lace. Color is a cloudy pinkish amber. The color is really hard to describe but very nice.
Aroma: Delicate fruit, soft malt, a hint of vinegar sourness, maybe just a touch of distant floral bouquet.
Taste: I love how this beer is so balanced, so delicate, and simultaneously really has depth and complexity. I'm just really kind of blown away by how soft the flavors are; and at the same time there is a robustness to the interplay of fruit, malt, a hint of ascetic vinegar sour. There is a slight woody presence, just ever so slight but present. It's not overtly sweet, but there is a pleasing quality to the fruit that is better than mere sweetness. The different aspects of the complex flavors here seem to occupy all parts of your senses so evenly and at the same time distinct in each part.
Mouthfeel: The body os this beer is just right in line with all the other attributes. It's medium to light, with a soft carbonation that's matches the delicate flavors. As with the flavor, it seems to equally stimulate all corners of the palate at once. The pleasing dry finish of L'Amoureuse No. 2 Rouge is crisp and well-defined without being harsh; it begs contemplation of the next sip.
Overall: I enjoyed this beer immensely, so much so that I had two glasses, and went back for another the next day. Every aspect of L'Amoureuse No. 2 Rouge plays off each of the others perfectly. If you're into beers with aggressive, in-your-face qualities, this one is not for you. But if you like balance and subtlety with depth and character, give L'Amoureuse No. 2 Rouge a try.
