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.

lembeek (143) - ITALY - APR 14, 2013
Rosso mattone, velata. Schiuma abbondante, ma evanescente. Profumi fruttati di ciliegia, vaniglia, e sentori floreali. Nel palato l’acidità sovrasta la dolcezza e i toni retro olfattivi fruttati.

A superior oud bruin. I’ve seen this for years but tried for the first time on tap in Omaha at Darios. Nice mellow sourness with a lingering sweetness. Reddish brown.
