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.

The colour is red/brown, with a beige head. There are no outspoken or extraordinary flavors. There is a slight sourness that is well-balanced with the bitterness. Overall it’s not bad, but the taste is a bit plain for me.

doradobotella (197) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 15, 2015
Apariencia: Color marrón cobrizo, con una capa de espuma abundante pero poco duradera Aroma: Asidrado: con notas que recuerdan a frutos secos, malta tostada, bayas y manzana. Sabor: Marcado por una acidez moderada y refrescante, con matices que recuerdan a frutos oscuros, manzana y ligeras notas a madera.

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Amber brown with reddish hues and a beige head. Aroma includes cherry, oak, malt. Taste is sour, but not overwhelmingly so. Cherry, wood, and malt. Some sweetness to balance the tartness. Decent.

DandyWolfFloyd (1007) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Aroma - some Bretty phenols, some apple esters Appearance - auburn body with good nucleation. The head is off-white and about 1/3" and settles to a foam. Sporadic lace. Taste - there is a subtle sour and somewhat vinous nature. There is some apple esters. Palate - body is on the light side of medium, the texture vinous, average carbonation, and somewhat tart finish a little dry.

Vieille brune à la très belle robe noire rouge Comme toujours type de bière spéciale Carbonatation légère Moins "vinaigrée" que la Rodenbach Intéressante mais sans plus

Buukwurm (39) - California, USA - APR 6, 2016
Poured a dark slightly golden brown. Pretty but not the ruby red mentioned in the brewer’s deScription. Nice malty aroma. Quite sour with a short sour finish. Thin. Lively carbonation. Nice but not great..

Kauge (1451) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
Had a bottle a while back at deTolly in Tartu. Poured reddish brown with smallish creamy head. Woody, fruity, spicy-ish aroma, somewhat sugary. Tasted sweetish sour, woody and fruity flavour. Light tartness, funky. Quite restrained sourness. Crisp and dry. Carbonation moderate to active. Lightish body. Overall pretty nice but far from outstanding.
