UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 2012.10.05 - bottle 33cl - ’bourgogne des flandres’ oh i like the name - flemish heart, blood and soul, how i dislike the ’odour’ of this beer which makes me think of vinegar, sourness and puke. ? Rodenbach-alike fruits, cherries, sweetness ... I’ll drink this one again, just because of the anomalies between my nose and mouth. Although my rating is not that high, i would like to recommand this beer "Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking when I said I’d like to smash every tooth in your head"

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 330mL bottle from Celliers des Arcades, Arras. Pours deep clearish brown with small beige head. Interesting aroma of deep, dark malty characters, sweet and sour sauce, bbq sauce and sugar. Flavour has sweet and sour sauce, burnt caramel, yeast, and is very sweet over-all with a sour tinge. Oily with lots of fuitiness. Decent but wouldn’t seek out again.

SPDickerman (1107) - Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Pours brown with a large khaki head. Smells sour and a little of caramel. Taste is both sweet and sour, caramel and sour fruit. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mildly prickly mouth-carbonation, Bourgogne des Flanders finishes mildly sweet and a tiny bit sour.
