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.

750ml bottle poured. deep red in color with a thin head that fades quickly. the aroma is light and tart, sour and fruity but slightly weird (yeast?) taste is mildly sour with hints of tart apple and some earthy-ness. good amount of acidity and tannins. an tasty easy drinker!

Mooie heldere donkerbruine kleur met een stevige beige schuimkraag. Ruikt zurig. Smaakt heerlijk, lekker zuur, beetje zoet. Topper.

First flemish sour tasting. The smell almost put me off, but since this was at a tasting with a lot more good ones, my drinking partners showed me the way. What a great surprise! The end of the taste reminded me of the bottom of a bag of Sour Skittles, with a vinegar-y scent. I need to find more Flemish sour.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2010 750mL bottle, a gift from Donfardz64. Pours a beautiful ruby hue. Tangy, sour aroma hits you as soon as the cork is popped. Nose is full of raspberries and boysenberry. Gorgeous. Incredibly complex flavours, mostly of berry fruit with a hint of cherry sweetness behind the immense sourness. Oak makes itself known, as it should. Amazing beer.
Man this beer is good. So rich and sour, and Iím noticing more woody and smoky notes every time I try it. I know it goes amazing with a cigar! For me, this beer is king of the sour beers. So much better than any wine Iíve ever tasted. I wish there was an abundant supply in New Zealand.

Not a very good beer, very soft and sour, resembles to expired dark wine with hints of yeast.

750ml bottle, shared with VeloVampire - pours a beautiful dark ruby colour, with the gradient lighting towards the bottom. Aroma is extremely sour and vinous, vinegary and fruity (cherries, red grapes, apples). Itís great. Flavour is at first an intense rush of sourness, which then gives way to reveal all the beautifully fruity, rich flavours underneath. Some nice oakiness in there as well, unsurprisingly, as well as candied sugar. I love Flemish Sour Ale, and so far this is the best one Iíve had...though I havenít had many. I want more. This stuff blows my mind.
