strings (377) - Sydney, - OCT 1, 2009
Bottle at Belgian Beer Cafe in Sydney. Gorgeous subtle lambic sourness amid cherry chocolate trappiste style flavourings. Really really great for first few sips but as the precious seconds slip away so does the flavour. Carbonation disappears quickly and texture and flavour becomes a bit more like cherry cordial. Drink it fast!

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Bottle says 26/10/10, which I assume is its bottling date. Looks good for the style; a semi-transparent brown with foamy light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells oaky, malty, and a little toasty with a touch of tartness. Tastes like it smells with a mildly sweet backbone and a medium-bodied mouthfeel and flavor that lingers on the tongue. I’d drink it again, but it’s underwhelming for the style.

Bottle. Light brown color. Malty fruity aroma. Agrume and another fruit. Peach maybe. Fruity flavor, more peach. Ok beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bonkiedeaap (278) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is dark brown to black and has a small cream colored head, with average Co2 level. In the aroma are tones noticable of dark fruits, spices, chocolate and a little red wine. The taste is a sweet to change in a light bitterness from the spices. Also tones of red port and red fruits. The finish is sharp and a little bitter.

mike_77 (3219) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2014
It’s got a strange herbal and almost savoury aroma that’s quite off putting. It’s less-so in the flavour where there’s a touch of fruitiness. It’s not particularly tart. Cherry stones in the background.

Douberd (2333) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2014
(Bourgogne des Flandres Biere Brune) Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 5% Dark brown colour on the body, quite clear, with a good sized beige head on top, with average retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of prunes, sugar, light caramel, raisins. Nice sour taste, not very extreme and also cut down a bit with sugar, some wine notes, dark fruits. Medium thin body, good carbonation with a little bite. Very good, especially since I thought it would be a dubbel because of the "bruin" on the bottle.
