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.

Bottled(250ml). –Shared with Doggythedog at the Hopdevil in Zagreb
Reddish/brown coloured, almost no head, sour fruity nose. Weak and sour brew. Faint cherry and sugary with mild oak notes, strong acidity and touch of caramel.

Marko (3947) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 27, 2006
Bottle shared with ozujsko at the Hopdevil in Zagreb
Poured a darker reddishbrown colour, with a small with nearly no head. The nose was quite vinuous, with hints of malt, yeast and berries and two other things I can’t decipher from my notes... a typical FSA nose. The taste is.. umm.... missing ? Very faint berries and noticable acidity that owns the finish.... if I can use the word finish, because there wasn’t much of a start anyway. F.S.A. Lite. I really want to like van Honsebrouck but I was disappointed so far.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2006
(Bottled) Clear ruby red color with a small, tanned head and some lace. Slightly tart, but mostly sweet, lactic-acidic aroma with cherries and sugar. Slightly sweet-sugary, mildly tart cherry flavor with hardly any finish. Smooth, but light-bodied palate with medium carbonation. A quite one-dimensional and uninteresting Flemish sour. Nothing especially irritating in it, though.

Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2006
Dirty brown coloured with a thin off white head. Very classy flemish sour aroma, with grounde cherries, sweet candy notes and light acidic points. In mout, however, a pathetic and thin sour, with light cherries and tartess and watery like hell. Bottle at l’Autre Oeil, July 26, 2006.

cathschlag (48) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2006
Odeur de cerises et de vinaigre balsamique (?). Mousse brunâtre d’un brun-roux. Très ronde en attaque. L’effervescence n’est pas du tout présente. Goût aigre en finale qui chatouille le haut du palais.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2006
Slightly hazy amber/brown color with a lively head. aroma is fruity and tart with a fair ammount of oak. Flavor sweet-tart like with more emphasis put on the tart. There are alot of flavors going on in this beer, but none that i would like to linger on.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2006
Bottle: Pours to a hazy, ruby/amber body, mostly opaque, with a med beige head. The head is thick, creamy, and lasting - leaving some excellent lacing around the glass. Aroma is just awesome (yes that’s what I have written in my notes), with scents of cherries, lemon, oak, wood, candied fruit, sweet & sour sauce, spice, duck sauce, and a bit of orange. Taste is watery cherry, toffee, candy, sour fish, sugary strange mix of sweet and sour like a sour candy, cough syrup, lemon, artificial cola flavoring. Watery, light-medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes sweet and sugary with hints of sour candy.

Eructoblaster (3034) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2011 Bottle - 375ml. . Nice dark brown body with ruby glints and an average off-white foamy head. Good sour/fruity aroma with hoppy, woody and spicy notes. Its sharp taste is dominated by sourness. it carries fruity notes and ends with a good sour finish. Decent Flemish Ale..
