330ml bottle from the LCBO. Beautiful pour with a thick white head. Fruity, with a bit of sour backbone. Very nice beer.

Nice murky chocolate color. Little head in my St Bernardus chalice. Sour lighter fruits on the nose with some astringency and rubber. Some fresh mortar. Taste is more of the same, bursting through with even more fruits and some sour. What I love about this is that it changes character in your mouth like every second for like a count of seven. Awesome.

jodah52 (210) - Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Pours rich, cloudy brown with small tan head. Sweet aromas of british malt and oak. Taste is sweet and carmely, with a hint of metal in the finish - the only bad point of this beer, I think - that disappears quickly, to be replaced with a long, warming finish of hay and stone. Nice british ale; there are better, but quite nice.

beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 4, 2005
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.

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.
