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.

Rating #2144 - 2015.11.02 - Tasting @colordevino_yeg with @49thParallelYEG -Hazy reddish brown pour, medium white head. Aroma is super bretty, lots of yeast on the nose - some oaky notes, sour cherries, wildflowers, honey, soapyness. Mouthfeel is clean, medium carbonation. Quite complex, the sourness is tempered with a fair amount of body, and lots of tart cherry. A fantastic Flanders-style beer.

Ysok02 (1047) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2016
Robe brune, mousse peu persistante. Nez puissant sur la vanille, le bois, le chocolat blanc, la cerise acidulée, assez complexe. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, de la tension, mais un certain manque de fruit et de complexité par rapport au nez, fine bulle et finale acidulée. Agréable mais pas transcendante.

hackobock (3564) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2016
August 31, 2016. Bottle, Deep red with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is sour, sweet fruity and vinous with sweet cherries, grapes, toffee, notes of raspberries, vinegar and oak. Taste is light to medium sweet, soft sour. Finish is quite short and a bit watery, light fruity sour cherry notes, some lemon, a touch of berry sweetness, hints of wood and vinegar. Light to medium bodied, a bit watery feel, average carbonation.
Alright, a bit bland.

- Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- braun-schwarze Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Zitrone, Pflaume, Holz und etwas Honig - sehr prickelnde Carbonisierung - der Antrunk wird von der Säure schon sehr dominiert - der Mittelteil hat diesen Balsamico-Essig-Touch - aber es gleitet nie ins Unangenehme ab - der Abgang ist schlank aber interessant Fazit: Sehr säuerlich aber gut

Bottle shared. I totally love the style and this is a pretty good example, nicely smooth and balanced with plenty of flavors for the friendly abv. Classic!

beer-yum (1366) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 10, 2016
Restrained, but complex aroma in a transparent red-black pour. Immensely appealing tart sour balance that matches or surpasses many of the trendy sours (from SF in particular). And at close to half the strength? That is a huge plus with me - hence the high rating.

thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2016
0.375 l bottle from Uba ja humal, Tallin. Appearance is dark brown with a white head. Aroma has chewing gum with fruits.Taste is slightly sour but mainly sweetish. Not as sour as some of the other beers of this style. Might be easier for beginners to start with this one.

LazyPyro (595) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2016
375ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Clear dark reddy brown colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma: fruity - berries, dried fruits, sugar, caramel malt. Taste: tart, sour fruit, berries, sugar, caramel. No bitterness, but good sweet and sour flavours. Not my thing though to be honest.
