500 ml bottle thanks to lukaduke. Pours a darker amber to brown with a beige head of foam. Aroma is malty sweet and slightly acidic. I get a bit of funky Tootsie Roll in the taste. Not very sour, which is a bit of a let down.

very thin slight beige head with no lacing. dark-red brown colour. aroma of red fruits, sweet, candy-like, reminds a lot of rodenbach grand cru, vanilla, tannins, red wine, very complex. tastes sour, tart, red fruit, very nice. finishes with a dry tart taste followed by a stingy, spicy sensation in the throat. due to the tannic acid perhaps? very nice sour ale, bravo! bottle 50 cl / batch #289 / best before 20-12-2014

Excited to finally see this one on the shelf! Clear raspberry pour with a minimal ivory cap that recedes to a ring. Tart unripe plum, cherry skin, citric acid, and juice. Sour but not enamel peeling. Flavorful and quite drinkable. Will pick up another if still available.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank in tulip glass. Aroma - a musty sour smell. Rasberry but rotten. Appearance - dark cherry color. No head. No carbonation. Taste - taste gets better. Tastes like an oaked sour. Sweet and bitter. Palate - not bad. Gets stronger with mouthfeel. Overall - good taste but on this rating system thats all it gets. Good thing it is the most important. Not bad overall. Will not seek it out again

From the bottle, dark red wine type pour, very little carbonation present. Aroma is like red wine, taste has that familiar Flanders red with some tart and wine notes. It's good, hit way too flat.
