This beer was brewed in sept. 06 and has since then been aged in oak barrels until bottling on March 22. 2008. The beer is blended for roundness but is still very sour and a little bit acetic. We think our first attempt has been a great success and we will definitely try this again.

De plus en plus, je me rends compte que je ne trippe pas trop sur cette brasserie. Aucune de leur bière n’est catastrophique (jusqu’ici), mais rien de ressort réellement non plus. Ici, nous avons droit à une rouge des flandres en bonne et dûe forme, mais qui étonne par son manque d’originalité. Ppas besoin donc d’entrer dans les détails sur les diverses notes, car celles-çi sont exactement celles auxquelles on s’attend de ce genre de bière. Aucune surprise, bref.

UDBeernut (2702) - Earth & Jacksonville (weekends), Florida, USA - APR 12, 2016
On tap at Novare Res Portland, me. Pours ruby hued, quick foam cream hued head that leaves zero lacing. Some cherries, plums. Medium body with an acidic finish. Hope I can find my car after this.

wombat23 (766) - Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Shared 16.9 oz. bottle. Pours an opaque amber/burgundy with a small beige head. Aroma is sour and vinous. Taste is red wine, wood, and sour dark fruits. It’s extremely tart and acetic, but has some sweetness to balance things out. I wasn’t sure what to make of it at first, but after sipping for some time, I found it to be most agreeable.

Aroma: sweet, fruity and tart; Appearance: very dark ruby red with thin head that dissipates quickly; Taste: extremely tart that finishes with sourness; a bit overwhelming; Palate: medium body with long, tart/sour finish; Overall: pretty good but too tart for me. Would not buy again.

Bottle. This is a great beer. Sharp, tart, and flavorful. Very sour. Among the better sour red/brown beers around. No complaints.

KoNrRiI (1230) - Århus, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2016
0.5 bottle. Hazy, dark brown color and a small, off-white head. Aroma is vinous, acetic, yeasty, sour. Taste is obviously sour, once again acetic, a tad fruity. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is even sourer than the rest, introduces strong notes of wood. Overall the beer is definitely too sour to be drinkable; however, I do enjoy feisty brews with flavors full of character. This one certainly falls into this category without offending.

bottle. deep mahogany red with minimal head. low carbonation. very tart with cranberry and lots of oak. rather thin body. i love sours, but this borders on too sour. interesting, but not among the best i’ve had of the style.

Holmen1 (4909) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2016
Flaske (batch 687, brygget 20.11.13) fra polets nettbutikk, hjemme: brunsvart med rød undertone. Svært kort skum. Aroma og (deilig!) smak av sure kirsebær, rips og oe lett rødvinsaktig. Tørr, snerpende vinøs avslutning. Slank for sitt vitamininnhold, så det byr ikke på problemer å helle den vellystig over drøvelen.
