A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

On tap at Fermentøren Copenhagen. Dark red with a barely off-white head. The taste is brett yeasty, fruity, cherry, and a very light trace of oak. The taste is deep sour, with a controlled sweetness. Smooth aged palate, simply fantastic!

The canonical Flemish Red/Brown ale. Hands down one of the most solid in the "sour" category. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excellente rouge des flandres. Elle est d'une couleur bourgogne avec un col beige. Au nez, elle laisse s'échapper des aromes de bois, vinaigre, sucré et de cerise. Les aromes se confirment au gout: ça goute le chène, les cerises, un peu vinaigré, toutefois le petit côté sucré balance le tout. En somme, très bonne bière dans le style.

Als niet fan van Kriek achtige bieren vind ik deze nog best lekker. Rood/bruinachtige kleur met zurige smaak maar hele lichte afdronk. Lekkere kersen nasmaak.

Sjohnh (514) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2015
Plum / brown coloured, with a small and rapidly diminishing white head. There is a plummy side to the aroma too, along with good vinegar and stewed tea. Carbonation is low but the tartness makes it lively in the mouth. Not so tart that it makes you wince though - the edge is taken off by some sweeter malt, dried fruit and vanilla. But the predominant flavours are plum brandy, apple and red berries. Like it.

Cloudy reddish brown color, average sized off white head. Aroma of red wine, vinegar and lots of sourness. Taste is again red wine and vinegar, sourness and some malty sweetness. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Interesting.
