Excellent red ale, my favorite. Subtle sweet fruitiness. A favorite to everyone I have given a sample too.

Bottle from Hop City, Atlanta. Smells like Worcestershire sauce and Coca Cola. Taste is sweet, sour, cherries, round, and malty. Very good.

SPDickerman (1176) - 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.

Excellent flemish sour. Not as sour as Duchess, which might actually be a plus for some people. A little too light for my taste, but that also makes it very quaffable.

[Keg] Ruby amber color; thin persistent cap.
Wonderful fruity aroma (ripe apricots, raisins, plums...); winy.
Pretty sweet, fruity, with a light oak cask character. Just the required hop.
Good palate, instead that bitter it"s sweet and lightly tart, astringent.
It would be perfect with some sharper sourness.

This is an incredibly drinkable beer for those that are beginners in the belgian sour category. It certainly won’t offend those that are looking for a really sour belgian either.

(Found, that I havent rated this) - very nice beer for me, dark brown with red in colour and very rich vine style tatse, wine sourness is excellently balanced with typical beer notes.
Earlier Rating: 10/23/2013 Total Score: 4.1
Dark brown with small light brown cap. Almost no aroma. Nice winy sour-sweet taste with mild bitterness afterwards. Something between beer and wine.
