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!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Kolor ciemny rubinowy pod światło. Piana początkowo obfita z drobnych pęcherzy osiadła do minimalnej warstwy w czasie degustacji.
W aromacie wyczuwalne są ciemne słody, owoce, winna nuta i czuć, że piwo leżakowało w dębowej beczce. Smak jest jeszcze bardziej złożony, aczkolwiek dominuje kwaskowość, wytrawność na pograniczu wina typu sherry, nuty ciemnych owoców, lekka goryczka - lekko zalegająca na finiszu.
Szkoda, że to tylko 0,33 l. Piwo można pić i pić. Jest orzeźwiające (bardzo zbliżone do lambika), musujące.

Strong aroma with notes of tart acid and some sweet malts. Pours a reddish brown with a thin beige foam. The flavor is complex and balanced with a good vinous end. The malt gives it a smooth, woody richness that gives over to the dry fruit. Medium body, little fizz with a good, long finish.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2010 On tap at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse. The pour is nice dark brown but not opaque. It also possesses a dark orangish tinge. The head is a froth of off white. The aroma is not strong but it does have fruity or berry hints floating around the ambient air. The flavor starts with an impressive, but likable, musty taste bud appeal. As you swallow, it turns slightly sour. This is not as sour or sweet as the other Flemish I have had, Roden Classic. This is much milder in the tart department, more mansuetude than I expected. Very well behaved, gentlemanlike manners. Mild and repeatable. Lacks any bitter palate. A friendly beer that is easy to enjoy. The carbonation is mild but pleasantly present. The finish of this brew is amicable at the least. You can drink many of these and never know it had alky in there. Overall an interesting entry, no worries with this beer.

Enjoyed via 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with a slight off-white head. Nose of sour cherries, malt, and a touch of dark fruit. Palate of more sour cherries, a touch of caramelly malt, and a bit of residual sweetness. A dry finish makes this a tremendously easy drinker. An excellent and traditional interpretation of a Belgian classic style.

250 ml bottle. Beautiful reddish brown body with a big off-white head. Strong and complex aroma with cellar notes, sour fruit and candy sugar with cellar notes. Flavor is a bit sweet and sour, malty, candy sugar, acidic, wood, dry fruit, roast and spicy. Very delicate and complex.

Clear dark dark ruby brown with a thin foamy head with lots of lace. Interesting aroma with earthy toffee and oak sourness, with a small smidgeon tof Chardonnay and toast. Flavor has a light sour tone that is packed full of flavor. Nice earthy sweet toffee with soft grape esters and a gentle oak tone. Very light chocolate cereal tones before the toffee comes in with an oaked sourness that is slightly tart but mildly refreshing. Has nice sweetness with subdued balancing bitterness.

This beer is tied with Monk’s for my favorite Flemish Ale to date. It features a lot of cherry aroma and flavor with a more subdued tartness and acidity.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from an 330ml bottle. Pours a beautiful clear brown color with plenty of light beige head. Slightly sour aromas of cherry, pears, and other fruits. Nice a complex brew that makes your tastebuds tingle, but incredibly smooth!
