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

Bawelt (465) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUL 1, 2016
Très légère, pas exceptionnelle mais pas de fausses notes.Nez un fond caramel, beaucoup de levures, un fond fruit confis de pommes voire cerise/raisin.Bouche très aqueuse, plutôt ronde, pomme et raisin plus présente.Peu de longueur.

On tap - dark brown, thin white head. Unusual tasting, slight licorice, good aftertaste. Nutty - fruity aroma. Ok mouth feel, but overall a bit sweet.

KoNrRiI (1095) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
0.33 tap. A clear, dark scarlet color with a small, white head leaving some basic lacing. Aroma is sweet and sour: citruses, yeasts, red berries, and perhaps a touch of caramel. The taste is also citric, sour, yeasty - rather weird all things considered. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. The finish is long and also citric - who would have thought. Overall not a bad beer, it’s unusual but very fruity and refreshing.

PapaVillum (834) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2016
Rød/brun ufiltreret Sour Red/Brown med mindre offwhite skumtop på 1/2 cm. Svinder til kant og overflade. Sød-/syrlig aroma af kirsebær, gær og citron. Smagen er let syrlig, mere sødlig og let bitter. Men det er øllets halvtynde krop, der gør et lidet flatterende indtryk. Forholdsvis fint balanceret smag med frugtnoter og en let hvede-ditto. Perlende mundfølelse qua en forholdsvis høj karbonering. Let olieret konsistens og en meget let krop. Overall: Hæderlig frugtagtig og frisk smagelig, men for let i udtrykket og i fylden. 33 cl, flaske, 5.0 % ABV, BB: 17/03/17, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

goofy34 (68) - Saint jean de vedas, FRANCE - JUN 9, 2016
Arôme fruité, agréablement sucré avec un petit goût de cerise, pas franchement amer pourrir acidité, carbonisation agréable et pour finir un surprenante couleur Marron rouge

dnicolaescu (1754) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 7, 2016
BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear red-brown, decent beige head. The aroma has red dry berry sweetness and bitter herbs - kind of like a cough syrup. Some metallic notes and very faint winy acidity. The taste is similar, with an acidity resembling carbonated drinks more than Flanders Reds. Not bad, but far from the best.

susonagger (171) - spain, - JUN 5, 2016
NOTA DE CATA: - Color: Bourgogne Des Flandres presenta un color oscuro. - Olor: Aromas de pimienta. - Sabor: Abunda en cualidades amargas desde su introducción en boca, pero también en su expansión directa a todo el paladar. Su severo amargor engaña un poco la realidad de su volumen alcohólico, principalmente en el retrogusto. Su conclusión revela una fuerte acritud, seca y breve.

75cl bottle. Light foam, typical for lambic, taste lightly acid fruity and malty at the end. Nice brown reddish brown color. Pleasant

markschiedon (545) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2016
Drinking from tap. In the aroma some fruit. The unclear brown beer has a small off white head. In the taste liquorice, cherries. Medium carbonated.

blackisle (1846) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Poured into a teku glass. Clear deep ruby brown, small stable frothy beige head, mostly diminishing, fair lacing; sweet fruity nose, cherries, raspberries, caramel, wood (much more complex than expected); taste light heavy sweet and light to medium sour, candy sugar, cherries, bit woody, light spicy notes; becomes more sour in the middle part leading to a fruity sweetsour finish, woody undertone; medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation; better than expected (being a Martin’s beer), perhaps bit too sweet but enough sourness for the balance.
