Jammer dat sommige cafe-uitbaters nietmeer zorg dragen voor het serveren van hun Bier. Een ontgoocheling maar toch een smakvol biertje met inhoud.

caesar (5294) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2003
Quite weak flemish sour ale. Brown color, lasting head. Tart and oaky aroma. Watery, but typical flemish sour ale flavors.

jerohen (2024) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2004 Those Liefmans-dudes rock! I love everything they make. Dark brown, clear. Sour malty nose. Typical Flemish Sour Ale flavour (and i like that). Good. Additional note: Cherry nose. Flavour is more buttery. Not as sour as some other Flemish reds, but certainly good.

argo0 (11581) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2003
Body is dark brown with hint of red. Minimal off-white head. Aroma is sour cherry with some wine sweetness, woodsy, raisin. Taste is lightly sour, some sweetness, fruity, finishing moderately wine-acidic. Light, even thin body.

JorisPPattyn (8007) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2003
Colour: very dark brown with reddish shine/very rich creamy head, yellowish-brown. Nose: very fruity, wooden-tart notes, sour fruit; also aroma as from oak casks having contained wine. Taste: immediately very winey, slight sourish taste - unmistakably lactic acid; woody, tannins; Maillard reaction (as of brown bread crust) and iron oxide (both signs of long cooking proces). Mouthfeel: light, thinnish, possibly accentuated by the acids; yet the aftertaste is chewy enough; again very oxidised tones as of Madeira or Port vintages. The mouthfeel notwithstanding, it is hard to believe, when tasting, that this beer has only 5% ABV!

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2003
Amber coloured beer with a light brown medium creamy head. Malty, slightly sour aroma. Rather woody taste. It is an ok beer but I do prefer Rodenbach. Maybe it is this woody taste.

Ernest (6306) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is heavily malty (caramel, dark bread, molasses), with notes of prune, cherry, raisin. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Surprisingly didn’t like this at all...very sweet and sticky.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2002
Very refreshing. Lightly acidic and sour. Definately better than Rodenbach Classic. This has more flavour.

Goviken (12) - BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2002
Good refreshing beer, Acidic, lactic touch. Slightly woody and some bitter fruit taste. Suppose little more depth/taste than it’s big brother Rodenbach. Good representation of Flemish red/sour style.

omhper (19792) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2002
Sampled draught. Mahogany coloured, not much of a head. Slightly acidic vinuous aroma. Ratherlight bodied, soft mouth feel, notes of vinegar and caramell. Perhaps just a touch of iron. Pleasantly refreshing slightly acidic finish.
