Huge foamy head,, different label ? Red color. Nose was woody and . Oh GOD, This is a sour freakiní brew. Why oh god why? This could make me stop drinking. Even mouth fulls of salsa canít was the rotten milk taste from my mouth. I usually research the brews before I sample, not this time.

Not sure if this bottle was quite right. Plenty of typical sour ale notes but thereís a rotten egg note that proves to be very distracting. Not what I would call enjoyable.

Bottle at Dśmningen. Clear red/brown - light brown head. Aroma: The fluffy head smells like sour-tuborg-hops !! But after that comes bikeglue and light wood. Taste: Red berries, light sour, light wood, malty, light rubber - bikegluem lbalsamic vinegar, acid. Too light in all asbects.

330ml bottle. Snifter. Deep amber or mahogany with a thin head. Aroma was of sour cherries and malt. Taste was quite sour with notes of green apples and vinegar. Thin mouthfeel. This one isnít for me.

Dark brown in color topped by a small foamy head. Smells of oak, balsamic vinegar, and a bit of cider. Initial zap of tartness is gone by the time the beer has passed the tip of the tongue. Taste is pretty bland, a bit of oak, mustiness, and biscuit are all I could pick up. Very dry throughout and also drying in the finish. The dryness is really its saving grace, if it were not present this beer would resemble drinking stale old water that has been in somebodys cellar for several years. Meh.

Bottle poured into glass. I gotta say that I was somewhat excited to try this sour since FL doesnít get too many but this one fell well short of my expectations. No real sour flavor or aroma to speak of. Maybe something is off on this one, although I donít see how thatís possible with a sour.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
11.2 oz bottle, cheap stuff.
Pours a nice brownish red, slightly clear with some nice carbonation bubbles rising. The head is large and off-white and sticks for a bit before leaving nice lacing.
The smell is pretty fruity, mostly cherries. There is a slight vinegar smell as well. No real sign of the oak.
The mouthfeel is watery, seems like most Petrus brews are. The taste is light, with some metallic notes. There is also some tart cherry.
This one along with monkís Cafe are utterly forgettable examples of this style.

The aroma is sour with sweet dark malts, fruit, and yeast. The appearance is brown with a small but persistent head. The malt character in this one is more pronounced than in the aged pale. But, it is still a sour beer and not totally to my liking. The palate is a little thin on this one. Overall all I can say is that itís an improvement over the aged pale.

This one certainly looks good - dark red-brown with a lovely foamy head. I couldnít make out much of a scent. Flavor was much like fizzy water. Palate is like a diet sprite. An overall disappointment.

A very light Belgian. Almost like very weak lemonade minus the lemon. Not really a particularly tasty beer at all. Probably would never order it by itself. Maybe Iím just not a fan of the Flanders Red style.
