Swaroga (1613) - Brussels, - MAY 9, 2013
33cl bottle. Dark red with medium, dirty head. Nose : tart, yeast, cooked cherries and other fruits. Sip : oily and smooth. Good carbonation. Sweet with strong cherry notes. A bit caramel makes it think of coca cola. Sour and cloying sweet.

Fin (8005) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle at Le Pantin, Ixelles, Brussels, Saturday 21st March 2015 Some balsamic on the nose, sweet, tart and with a good sour edge. Loz isn’t a fan of this place so I am gonna have to rush my rating. I actually rather like this beer compared to the frankly drab blonde. It’s sour, tart, tangy, fruity, repeats a little on the way down. Good beer. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Drak brown with rich beige head. Sour fruity aroma. Sour and swet fruity taste, something of red and wood fruits, slight bitterness on the background, very refreshing.

Scopey (8035) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Keg at Six Deg Abz. It pours deep brown with a small light yellow-tan head. The nose is earthy, wood, brett, tangy dark fruits and a touch of malt vinegar. The taste is full of tangy dark fruits, malt vinegar, cola, dried fruits, wood, mild acidity and tart green apple with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Tangy. A bit too much malt vinegar. OK sour brown.

Pyrmir (3759) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2015
330 ml bottle during Brussels vacation, at Deliciés. Reddish brown with off white head. Aroma is sweet and sour, acidity, vinegar and red berries. Taste is nicely balanced, sweet, sour, lots of vinegar, lactic acid, some malt notes and red berries. Really nice beer, reminds me of Duchesse de Borgogne but not as cloyingly sweet.

Nicolas_M (65) - BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2015
If it was only for the aroma, I wouldn’t taste this beer. In glass, it looks like a regular glass of cola soft drink. The label announced brown beer but it’s more like a sour red beer. If you like this kind, it may be worth the try.

Ulysse (256) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2015
Vinegar aroma. Red brown colour. At first quite sour. The more you drink the sweeter it gets.

florent.janssens (184) - - JAN 6, 2015
Rouge des flandres. odeur de vinaigre. Goût typique de la sour red un peu trop prononcé, limite écoeurant. Sucrée qui masque l’acidité . Après quelques gorgée, passe mieux.

Bozo_skeleton (649) - Grenoble, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2014
Ruby un peu sombre, limpide, carbo moyenne, collet fuyant. Aromes cerise aigres. Un peu trop de sucre meme si cela contrebalance bien le cote aigre. Longueur moyenne, pinte d’acidite sur la finale.
