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

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.

The appearance of this beer has a deep dark brown color throughout the glass with a light tan frothy head towards the top. The aroma of this beer at first has a sweet spice and ends with a subtle sour. The taste of the beer starts with sweet fruit almost apple like and ends with a sour malt. A great beer that would lead anyone down the sour ale road!

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2005 OK beer. Soft and fruity. More sweet than sour. Very refreshing.

omhper (18966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2003
Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden.
Dark reddish brown. Big cherry aroma. Sweet, yet acidic and very vinuous. Medium bodied, with a slight note of oak. the finish is an orgie in berry flavour; raspberries, cherries, blueberries, you name it...

Pour at Radio Maria. Dark cherry in appearance. Very fruity and refreshing. Bubbly finish. An alternative to a lambic or sangria. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
