COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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.

Theydon_Bois (12738) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle at home, from the Bottle Shop - Brugge, 22/01/13. Night of the (re-arranged) Rodenbach Grand Cru mass online tasting. Pours a lightly hazed deep crimson brown with a thin off white swirl of film and some bubbles at the edge of the glass. Still looking but inviting. Nose is wood, sour cherries, light fruity balsamics, tarte figgy jam. Taste comprises soured cherries, sweet and tarte red berries, sharp raspberries, some sugars, grandads shed, damp wood. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, tarte and dry in the finish. Overall a great Flemish red!

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.

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.

veceo (851) - CROATIA - JUL 31, 2015
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.

Vili (146) - FINLAND - JUL 30, 2015
33cl bottle. Clear, dark brown pour with minimal coffee head, little to no lacing. Aromas of grapes, green apples and brandy. Taste is dry, lightly sweet, little to no bitterness. Really lively palate, fresh carbonation. Aftertaste is sophisticated and fresh, but warm in a lots-of-alcohol -way. Great stuff.

Bottle at home. Pours reddish brown, beige head. Sour and sweetish, fruits, cherry, wood, vinegar. Taste is vinegar, oak, tart berries, quite sweet. Somehow leaves a bit bland feeling. Is it because there are so many good sours nowadays? I liked the regular version more, or then it is time.

Let me start by saying, I'm not a fan of sours. This pours a deep red with a moderately persistent light tan head .... mine doesn't not have a pink hue. The nose leans strongly toward a Chardonnay with some cherry. The flavor was surprising, grape forward with cherry and a nice malt support. Finishes with a fizz with a reminisce of Champagne. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours cloudy dark brick/oxford brown with nice highlights and small pinkish beige head that fizzes away immediately. Very fruity aroma, green and red grapes tending toward vinegar, with malt and slight oak notes. On the palate, it’s very much cherries, tart but not puckering, with strong carbonation. But the cherries lead back to vinous flavors; definitely more of a wine character than the regular version. Dry finish, quite refreshing for those who like sours.
