4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle $5.99. Dark red-brown color, good head at first and then a film of bubbles. Smells a bit like cherries, wood, brett adn possibly pedio(?), I anticipate it will be sour. Taste is more complex than I expected with the wood playing a good part, sour but not completely mouth puckering. One of the better Flanders Reds that I’ve had.

Light aroma notes of bread and apples. Decent palate, leaves Granny Smith tartness on the lips.

No idea how I overlooked this beer for so long. This is a great sour ale and wasn’t nearly the price of some of the others I’ve come across. Complex flavors. Fruits and vinegars. Citrus and pome, sweet grapefruit and grapes. The yeasts are present in the flavor. Not a whole lot of astringency. Great finish.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2014 Dark purple colour. Sour aroma, cola. Sour taste, with a touch of sweetness. Vinegar and apples. Overall quite a nice Flemish Red, though I still prefer Duchesse.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours clear dark amber with a good sized creamy off-white head. Aroma is funky fruity, barnyard, wood and red ripe berries. Taste is fresh and dry fruity, crisp and tart, very well balanced, lingering dark red berries, good one.

Medium tan head. Clear brown body. Vinous wooden red berries
aroma with yoghurty notes. Sweet-acidic wooden wild berry taste
with yoghurty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel with
astringent sting. Dry-sweet-acidic wild berries aftertaste with

but still subtle. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Triaden

330 ml bottle. Dark reddish brown colour. Crystal clear. Medium-sized white head initially, but it falls down quickly. Nice sweet vinegary aroma with dried fruit and a little funk. Nice acidic flavours with a good dose of candy-like flavours. Red berries, vanilla og cherries. A little too sweet and slightly artificial, but overall a really nice Flemish red.
