Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a clear garnet brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have cherry and berry notes, lightly tart, pie crust, some off strange notes that are hard to describe, with all the other beers around this just didn’t stand up, weak finish.

330ml bottle. Rich ruby in colour, thin beige head, light lacing. Aroma is sweet, white sugar, light cherries, some pie crust. Flavour is lightly sour, more sweet, some cherries, light spice. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes sweet first turning a bit sour, some tartness. Seems old even though its still in date.

bottle @ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Clear amber brown, thin ivory head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is caramel malt that adds wood on the swallow with carbonation balancing things in the finish. Full-bodied, but all elements aren’t exactly in harmony with each other.

Pours a slight plum / blood red, no head at all very hazy. Nose is akin to cherry pie w/ old meat. Nice mouthfeel and carbonation front is on point. Tartness is reserved and fully of flavor but unfortunately the flavor isn’t very exciting. lots of off flavors.

Too sweet for the style if you ask me. Only slightly sour with a little funk and some cherry cough syrup. I don’t know why they call this a grand cru, or what distinguishes it from their other oude bruin, but I was not impressed.

ramboraffe (834) - SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2014
Sample at Ölrepublikens surölsfestival. Clear dark red brown with small head. Smell is sweet and sour with ripe and unripe fruit and light funky. Taste is light sour with medium sweet fruity body. Just a little funk. Very drinkable. Semi dry with light carbonation.

Beerathon (1413) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Very tasty sour. It’s more tart than sour, even has a bit of a sweet finish. Pours reddish brown and has a great sour cherry nose and flavor.

"a nice but unspectacular flemish red. the aroma is a little oak and sour fruit, but simple. the flavor and feel get quite nice as the beer warms. full, smooth, oak and slightly sour cherries. not as complex as some, but still nice."
