Dark ruby red with creamy white slight browny head. Malty little cherry/vinegar taste & aroma. Thin body. Earhty dry taste. Good lacings. Very mild - biere rouge for starters! Lacks complexity - but drinkable!

KickInChalice (860) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2012
From notes. First reviewed 9/9/2011. Poured from a 750 mL caged and cork bottle into a snifter. Bourgogne des Flandres Biere Brune pours a murky cherry brown color with a white head. Eventually fading to a ring, the cap leaves a bit of lace. This actually smells like pizza, which is odd. Behind that, there is brown malt sweetness and some tart cherries. The flavor is sweet. Brown malt with some brown sugar starts the flavor. Some tart cherries next. Vaguely woody, and it almost turns into cherry coke by the end. Fairly weak, strangely sweet, and not very sour or good. This is light and a little bit tart with soft carbonation and a light to medium body. Overall, this is kind of a weird beer.

aplus01 (71) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2012
A - moderately bready with a touch of sour fruit. A - dark brownish red in color. No appreciable head T - very mild tartness. not nearly as sour/tart as I anticipated. P - for a brown this beer had less body than I expected. finished pretty cleanly for a sour ale O - not a bad beer just not as tart as I prefer. If you’re not looking for super tart beer this would fit the bill nicely.
