From ’t Vosken in Gent. Clear, ruby red. Not much head or carbonation. Very strong acetic aroma and flavor. Some malt flavor. No hops in the aroma or flavor. Strong acetic vinegar component. Some oak. Quite nice, but not for the faint of heart. Not positive if the very strong acetic component is intentional or if this keg has been sitting around a bit too long.

On tap at The Archive for Armakeggon. Not normally my style but this was a welcome surprise, not overly funky, just enough to be interesting, smooth and complex.

Draught at Brugges Beer Museum. Cloudy amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma of sour berries, swamp, barnyard and balsamic vinegar. Medium body with a nice snappy sour finish.

Tiny growler. Amber with an off-white head that retreats to the rim straight away. Aroma of berries, bracken, apples, caramel. Quite sour, perhaps not as acidic as expected - and no vinegar at all. Thin lassi-like texture, low carbonation. Under-ripe berries, apples, toffee, damp undergrowth, some hard spices. Deeply refreshing. Very lovely indeed.

On tap. Pours a hazy mahogany with light retentive head. Aromas of sour berries, wet wood, and balsamic vinegar. Light flavors of red berries, oak, and brown vinegar. Clean and refreshing.

On tap at ?t Antwaerps Bierhuyske, Antwerpen. Very dark amber with almost no head. Vinous aroma with notes of wood, balsamic vinegar, raisins and some earthy and fruity notes. Sour, wooden and fruity - easy to drink and quite delicious!

Cask. Dark cherry brown. 2 finger dense whip cream head. Aroma: Brown sugar nose, oak, cherry, peach and tannins/red wine. Taste: decent mouthfeel. A bit oily and slick. Tastes very young. Medium oak finis. Cherry, bramble and kiwi taste. Very tropical. Aged hops and for sure a lot of tartness.

10cl draught sample at Zythos Bierfestival, Leuven. Almost transparant brown color, offwhite creamy head that nicely laces. Vinous Rodenbach nose but the taste is less prominent, uncarbonated, a little watery but nicely sour.
