yourilevesque (690) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2015
Dégustée au RBBSG 2015. Cheers all! Brune, aigre, acide, vinaigrée, forte en alcool, cette bière est le portrait parfait de la tentative américaine de faire du sour ou une imitation de Rouge des Flandres. Je ne comprends pas l’entêtement à produire la bière la plus acide possible. J’ai eu l’impression de boire du vinaigre balsamique à même un boyau d’arrosage. Tout est saturé et poussé ridiculement loin: le goût de bois et l’acidité (ai-je dit que c’était acide?). Pourquoi, mais pourquoi?

77ships (6129) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2015
Thanks to ElManana + 1! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ “Hot & Sweaty RBBSG 2015”. Dark brown, little off-white head. Nose is big vinegar, light glue, vinegary red wine, red currant, strongly sour,… Taste is big vinegar, lightly fizzy, glue, tad varnish, strongly sour red wine mixed with some jammy malt body, puckering red currant,… Fizzy, light glue body,… Way too sour with the sourness taking on a glue aspect,… This is some real sourness overkill. Not too much else, there is a jammy base but the sourness distracts from it & covers it.

ElManana (1296) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle at RBBSG, thanks for sharing Myself. Acid sour, fruity, oak, acid sour all the way. Truly horrible, typical beer Americans like since it’s stupidly sour. Balance is totally gone though.
