That1Guy (2191) - Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Aromas of fruit loops and spree. A touch of bandaid, more fruitiness, and some advil. Ooh, this infected in a bad way. Not happy with it.

Davros (2611) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2012
Pours brown with ruby tints and a small, quickly fading head. Nose shows sweet forest fruits, faint funk and a soft, acidic character. Some of the fruit transfers through as a flavour, hinting at blackberries. Also some sweet malt and a faintly spicy finish. Body seems a bit watery.

phaleslu (9017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Draft at Flying Saucer-Memphis. Pours a mostly clear mahogany-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits, copper, brown sugar, sweet malts, and plums. Flavor of berries, plums, sweet malts, candi sugar, and some sour candy. Mellow sourness. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a sweet and only slightly tart mouthfeel.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2012
I didn’t really know anything about this beer when it was opened and shared by Mogotank. I was expecting something along the lines of Verhaeghe Duchesse De Bourgogne. Although this isn’t really at all a flanders red, it still has some very light hints of the same vinegar aroma and flavor associated with the Duchesse. It’s moderately sweet and malty and extremely smooth. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Very enjoyable.

sebletitje (8841) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2012
draft @ Delirium. A dubbel, more like an easy to drink flemish red or sour brown. Ambrée, col beige fin laissant des bulles style champagne. Arôme léger pointe de bois/chêne, notes de baies rouges, malt grillé. En bouche, très légère et agréable à boire, mélange entre une pointe aigre très légère avec un mélange fruité rouges de baies allant vers la fraise, le tout sur un malt grillé voire biscuité et caramel. Petite aigreur donne un palais un peu poivré sur la langue avec un fini boisé et de baies rouges.

briangray77 (14) - Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2012
[11.2 oz bottle] Aroma was slight - some cherry, dried fruit, red wine hints. dark amber brown pour with thin but lasting off-white head. I love the taste of this beer, even though it is not at all representative of flemish sours - really subtle sour long in the finish, but a slightly sweet cherry note throughout. It drinks a bit fizzy and has an almost oily note in the palate. Not a great flemish sour, but an incredibly drinkable beer because of the unique taste.

bigtaster (892) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Brown semi clear with deep red hues, quickly receding bubbly head. Nose is almost vinous yeast, with molasses, hint of plum. Pretty light body, lots of carbonation almost like soda, simple sweetness with a very nice tart funk to it. Overall too much carbonation and lack of depth.
