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.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2006
The beer makes good its escape pouring a deep clear brown, the head is bountiful, creamy in texture and a winsome light tan in color, upon its dematerialization, the lace formed is a tight seal upon the glass. Nose is musty, with hints of molasses, malt and a bit of citrus like tartness; start is mild in sweetness, fair to middling grain presence, and the top light to moderate in its feel to the palate. Finish is sternly acidic, tart, quite dry and a magnificent beer.

Bottle... Clear, copper ale, with a small, fizzy, tan head. Nutty, malty nose with moderate tanginess. Additional notes of pepper, oak and caramel. The flavor is lightly Flemish and bone dry. Balanced nicely. Light-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Mojave-dry finish! Thanks go out to growler for sharing the bottle!

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 4, 2006
Pours deep burgundy with a thin tan head. Aroma of funky brett, cherries, leather, and barnyard fruitiness. Taste is cherry, plum, nutty toasted malts, and oak. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Finish is pleasantly acidic with a restrained sourness. I wasn’t sure I’d ever like a sour beer. This brew is delicious, and has changed my mind.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Bottle. Pours crystalline mahogany with thin beige head. The aroma has a ton of oak, much like weak whisky, is a bit sour, and has a bit of grassy hops. The flavor is largely molasses and oak, with just a little bit of a vegetal note. It’s pretty sour, but not overwhelmingly so. Could be more graceful, but not bad.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Last of my gift pack. Man 20 bucks for six good beers. Musty sour aroma. Dark red body witha head that disipated faily quick. Flavor is sour with a cherry flavor as well. Medium sour palate. Decent beer.
