COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Brown tint on a red base with light carbonation and an off white head. Smelled of mild brown malts and sour peaches. Has a good caramel sweetness and then some tart sour peaches come in. Pretty good balance could use time.

doradobotella (196) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 15, 2015
Apariencia: Color marrón cobrizo, con una capa de espuma abundante pero poco duradera Aroma: Asidrado: con notas que recuerdan a frutos secos, malta tostada, bayas y manzana. Sabor: Marcado por una acidez moderada y refrescante, con matices que recuerdan a frutos oscuros, manzana y ligeras notas a madera.

Foffern (1617) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle at home. 1 year old. Has a deep brown color with a light brown head. Aroma of dried fruit, oak, leather, plums, cocoa, forest floor and vinegar. The flavor is more sour with more vinegar, oak, forest floor, some chocolate and dried fruit. Has a slick and soft mouth feel, light to medium body, and a light bitterness. A nice oud bruin but a little careful in both aroma and taste.

jelledebont (89) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2015
Lekker fris donker bier. Een beetje zuur, wat daaraan bijdraagt. Wat waterig in de nasmaak en verder niet heel onderscheidend.

Barwa ciemnorubinowa. Piana beżowa, drobnepęcherzyki. Oblepia szkło do gońca. W aromacie nuty karmelowe, owocowe, wiśniowe, lekkie nuty palone. W smaku zdecydowanie wyczuwa się nuty winne, wiśniowe. Cierpkie, lekko kwaskowe z nutami palonymi. Goryczki prawie nie ma.
