Dark ruby red – red as wine. The style is also called the Burgundy of Flanders, and is a very typical and common beer in West Flanders
Created by a secret blend of the aged and sour ‘mother beer’ with fresh brewed sweeter beer, this beer produces a sour-sweet balance, set off by the underlying bitterness of the hops. A discovery! The best in its style! Light in alcohol, exciting complex flavors and tastes come to the forefront.
Although serving cold is recommended, taking time to drink it will release more aromas towards the end of your glass.

The aroma is full of hops and christmas even though it isn’t a christmas beer. the color is dark caramel. The taste is full of christmas. It is slightly sweet and bitter at the same time. Not a fan at all.

gorkogrlo (208) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours deep red color with small-medium head. In aroma some cherries, caramel and tiny "brett" notes. Flavor is slightly winey, with notes of caramel. Sweetness and sourness are well balanced. Good beer, for my taste, missing some lambic and spice character.

Bière qui a un côté sour ale. un peu acide mais pas aussi acide qu’une vrai sour ale. Arrière goût quasi inexistant.

Aroma of sour ale. Tastes like some cherries were added. Not as sweet as it would seem.
