UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from Rake. This is my favourite style of beer, so pardon my bias. Dark caramel in colour with an off white head. Smell is identical to Gouden Carolus Christmas - in a word, scrum! Taste of christmas pudding with a touch of citrus fruits. Finish of tart black cherries. Velvety nouthfeel. Well balanced. I like it a LOT!

Bottle. Brownish black beer with a light head. The aroma is nicely fruity and sour, and the flavour is weakly fruity with a sour finish. Overall a nice but average beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2010 Bottled. I like those flemish sour ones, and this didnít disappoint me either. It has a clear, brown body and a beige head. It has a quite weak, but complex aroma with coffee, roastiness, cellar-notes, blackcurrant and sourness. The flavor isnít at the same level, with sweetness, sourness and dried fruits. Full to medium body. A nice beer who deserves more flavor. Rating: 7-3-6-4-14-3.4. 061222
Bottle, 25cl. It pours a clear, dark amber to brown body with just a tiny, tiny off-white head soon diminishing into a little bunch of bubbles on half of the surface. Nice aroma with berries and vinegar in a pleasant union. Some cellar and dried fruits as well. The flavor is pretty much the same, but a bit weak maybe. Medium body, tart. Pleasant acidity in the end, with a sugary sweetness too. A beer I could drink a lot of, often. Tasteful and easy drinking. 101119

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A dark red coloured beer with no head. The aroma is musty, woody and twiggy with subdued fruits and sourness. The taste is woody and dry. An old tasting beer with more sourness but itís again quite subdued. Drinkable but plain really.

A Mes rate: 25cl bottle from Quinns. I love flemish sours and this is no exception. Glorious nose with hints of cherry, plum and spice. Muddy dark brown slightly cloudy body with a swiftly dissipating head. Creamy malts in the mouth with some mature cheddar, dark fruits, vinegar and cinnamon. Lovely tangy notes with a delicate sourness. Beautifully soft mouthfeel. Peppery acidic finish. Nice beer.

25 cl bottle. Dark brown with deep red notes and arich, creamy khaki head. Potent sour fruit nose, winous. Taste is sweeter yet still with sour fruit and yoghurt. Light body. Very enjoyable.
