On tap, yard of ale, Stroudsburg, pa. Tan head sticks to glass, aroma of a Belgian. Iced tea colour, slight carbonation. Leads with caramelized fruit notes, sourness is slight. Like a very mellowed RaisonDeTra. 5.0 abv and drinkable at a session.

Vells (1004) - Riga, LATVIA - MAR 7, 2015
Was quite a pleasant surprise. Moderate malty, some roast, caramel, light dried fruitiness, brown sugar, light hops in background. Moderate sweetness with light sourness Drinkable, but definitely something synthetic weird about this one.

ronaldtheriot (1524) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Bourgogne des Flandres has a medium, cream-colored head, heavy lacing left on the glass, and an initially clear, cola-brown, bubbly appearance, which becomes quite murky, once the bottom sediment is loosened and poured in. The aroma is of sharp, aged malt, slightly turned fruit, chocolate, and sweet, gingerbread. Taste is of sweet & sour candy, sugar, turned fruit, medium-to-dark malt, acid, and brown bread crust. Some tart cherry, much like Dr. Pepper, is in evidence, too. Bitterness is low, and the mouthfeel is medium and cola-like, but without the high carbonation. Bourgogne des Flanders finishes semi-wet and decently drinkable. RJT

Small head lasting long time. Dry/red fruits aromas and caramel. No acidity aromas. Some acetic acidity flavors and quite tart. Not a long of complexity but a long sweet final.

Bijna zwart van klein. Zurige smaak en fijn koolzuur. Ook een beetje zoet. Doet aan atjar denken?

rikstar (1408) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2015
Gedronken op bierfestival Brugge, van de tap. Bruin met een creme kraag. Typisch aroma kruidig winterbier. Smaak ingeving zoetig maar heeft ook wat van droge worst en jenever bes. Bijzonder bier.

Benzai (10131) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle @ home. Lightly hazy red-brown color, average sized beige head. Smell and taste malts, caramel, a hint of sweet but mainly sour. Weird sweet - sour mix with quite clearly some oak coming through. Average body and carbonation. Meh, not my thing.
