Nice lunch or dinner red light sour that goes well with most anything .. Not on the level of the more premium Rodenbach offerings, but the price reflects that . This one is more of a daily drinker that I would recommend to most anyone that likes this style .

Pours a deep amber - red with nice micro bubble foam head. Nose is sour cherry, reminds me of a framboise Flavor is mostly cherry, some raspberry, reminds me of a light wine. Sweet and sour, has a nice tart finish. Carbonation had a fizzy quality. Overall this is a flavorful and light bodied beer, very enjoyable.

Aged for four years.

Another fine offering from Rodenbach -- and unlike Alexander and Caractere Rouge, this one is impressively reasonable in price! More malty than their other offerings, with that same lightly smacky tartness that doesn't overwhelm the nuances in the yeast that is used.

80/100

Poured from 330ml bottle. Best by date of '08.28.2018'.
Reddish brown body. Thin ring cap. Some small spots of lacing that slide down the glass.
Light aroma of cherries and darker berry. Also vinous.
Taste of cherry, vinous grape, oak barrel, and funky yeast.
Refreshing mouth feel, fizzy on the tongue.
Described as having "sweet-sour taste and complex bouquet". Completely agree, also the description of "very drinkable ale".
