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.

bottle. Nice aroma of fruit and yeast, really nice citrus effect on the palate. sour taste with a medium malt body and hints of yeast. really good...too bad the bottle is so small.

Bottle. Dark red brown with an initially large head. Aromas are woody and malty with some sourness. Cherries and berries are present. Some mustiness and woody taste with some sour, of course.

NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2002
Deep rapsberry-brown color. Sweet-tart aroma, slightly fruity. The body isn’t quite as tart as the nose suggests, which I found a little disappointing. Smooth, mellow flavor, and I agree that it is rather reserved. This was my first Flanders red, and it wasn’t as bold as I expected.

Subtle aroma of toast and apples. The taste is carmelly and woody with a wine-like fruit aftertaste. very pleasant.

This beer is pretty amazing. Normally I don’t like sour beers as I find them too sour, but you can taste the wood from this, very nice!

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

brown reddish clear with large off white head., sour aroma, taste is slightly sour, rasberryish maybe, but also wet cardboard. , falls a bit flat. ok though.

A unique beer. I look forward to the Aged Pale version coming out soon in Michael Jackson’s Belgian Beer of the Month Club though.

This beer is balanced and fine overall, but there is nothing of interest. There are vague hints of good Flemish sours--some sour apple. A little bitterness, a little wood. I can’t say I see what the point is.
