Decent vlaams old bruin/rood. Taste is oaky and sour. The problem I have with this beer is that is tastes a bit more chemical than the other beers in this style.

Will start with the statement, we are not huge fans of lambics or sours. Pours a beautiful red-brown with a tan head. Smells of cherries, apples and bananas. Taste starts fruity, with some interesting carbonation in the middle. Bubbles on your tongue. A slight sourness in the finish. Good for sours, but not our style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (2167) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 22, 2013
BOTM club. Pours a dark reddish brown with thick cream colored head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of sweet dark fruits and acetic sourness. Taste is much better, cherries and cola with a dark prune sore finish that lasts a while. Pretty nice.

EddyBeer1 (848) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2013
Brune claire tirant vers l’ambré, pétillance moyenne, col beige clair persistant. Malts légèrement torréfiés, cola, l’une ou l’autre épice, légèrement vineuse (d’où son nom), le fût de chêne se fait quelque peu sentir, manque de corps. Rien de spécial, d’autant que je m’attendais à mieux!

StoutHead (606) - DENMARK - SEP 7, 2013
On tap. Pours a clear red with an off-white head. Taste is sweet and malty with notes of citrusy fruits. Very fresh and soda pop-ish. Not bad but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trapez (1513) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2013
On tap. Aroma of vinegar, yeast and fruit. Redbrown colour with beige head. A bit of tart and Wood in the rather sweet fruit flavour. Not very sour.

DoublEE (784) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Sweet and lightly acidic with very low tartness. As anticipated, cherry is prominent, resembling Smith Bros. Cough Drops. Like the aroma, these flavors are less complex than other versions of the style.
