COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A typical Flemish beer with a pleasant wine-like taste and a rich past. This dark brown beer, which is matured in oak casks, has a slightly acid aftertaste.

The aroma is fruity, vinegar, spicy, brown mustard, berries. The soiurness doesn’t overpower here. The appearance is a reddish brown, lots of carbonation, light brown head. The flavor is again spicy brown mustard, vinegar, and sour cherries. The finish is sour fruit. The body is on the thin side of medium. Decent sour. I think it’s better than its ratings average implies.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Bottle (which claims a bottled on date (should be a bb date) of 090414). Pours with a minimal off-white head over a hazed brown body. Red wine, raspberries, brown sugar, lacto, sour, earth, cherry pits. Taste is sour, wine, jammy, only a little bit of the sweet-meaty taste I hate is some traditional Belgian Flemish reds/browns. Lots of fruit notes. Not super sour, but maybe a 5/10. Dry. Pretty good. Light bubbles.

Raspberry and sweet strawberry on the nose with hints of funk. Pours reddish amber with a solid white head. Very mild flavor, raspberry and cherries with very mild tartness, finishes very dry. Not bad.

Bottle, thanks to troy. Vinegar, raspberries and other tart aromas. Light and watery flavor. Could use a little more oomph!

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Very dark brown pour with garnet tints. The head is small, beige, and frothy. The nose contains some dark fruits, cherries, oaky funk, acetic acid, and basement must. The flavor is juicy dark fruit, nectar fruit, and sour vinous notes. Oak and funk come through subtly. The palate is medium to full with low effervescence and a dry acidic finish. A bit underwhelming.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Bottle shared by Turd. Pours rusty. Tastes sort of rusty, too. Woody and slightly sour, but not really much of a Flemish Red or Oude Bruin... not sure what it wants to be. Weird.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Bottle shared by Turdferguson at the Carolina Crew tasting - thanks, Sam! Fairly uninspiring reddish-brown pour with minimal carbonation. Aroma is a bit flat too, with faint overripe grape and musty wood notes. Initially almost like a Flemish red taste, but gets dry and earthy soon enough, with moderate acidity but not a whole lot of character.

Beautiful ruby brown, light tan head. Cherry leather aroma, little vinegar. not particularly sour, kind of watery body, let me down.
