3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz single bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Deep ruby red, purplish and clear appearance with a nice, lingering tan head and light lacing. The aroma is tart cherries, dark sour fruits, light funky yeast, oak, vanilla and a touch of caramel and toffee. Similar flavor, mildly sour with a moderate fruity and malty sweetness. Medium body, smooth, soft and easy to drink. A classic. Pairing: Miles Davis - No Blues, 10/28/1967, in Antwerp, Belgium.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz. bottle, consumed on 6-23-15. Labeled as “VanderGhinste Oud Bruin.” Labeled "04 14," which makes me think it was bottled in April 2014. Amber. Moderate amount of beige head. Malty, lightly tart aroma. Some spice in the smell. Apple pie and caramel scents. Tart, dry flavor. Lemon juice, light white vinegar. Lightly mineral. Black pepper. Nice beer, not special, and it is subtle, but I like it. Light to medium body. Soft in the palate. Slightly better than my score would indicate, and that caused me to give an extra point in the overall score.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown/red color with a decent head. Aroma is sour and tart, slight malt, weak sweetness. Taste is more sweet than anything else, slight red berry taste, maybe some cherry, then a very weak sour on the end. Decent but not the best Flanders Ale.

On tap at the Yard House in Atlanta.
Clear mahogany body with a very good head.
Odd but modestly appealing aroma suggests a very tart ale.
Flavor: a mix of sweet and tart with a touch of hop bitterness.
Light but not watery body with low-medium carbonation.
