I actually received this by acident at a local brew pub..Smelled like sour fruit...Taste was similar...Sour cherries and apples...My initial reaction was I hated it, but as I continued to drink it, it did taste better. Just not a style I am fond of.

[Sampled time by time, 2003 -->2005.] Itís now it happens. Rodenbach turns over and gotta be something speciel, not for the fainthearted. Heidelberg Lagervinegar, but not as significient af Duchesse. Sweet and sour. Lactobacillis, vinegar, sour fruit, curd, oaky and a sessionbeer also for the flamish geek. Nice, finally!!

Dark mahogany body with foamy caramel colored head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of sour cherries with some sweet caramel notes in the background. Sour cherry and apple flavor mixes nicely with oak and yeast. Not overly sour but still has a slight puckering effect in the finish.

Pours a rich ruddy red with a thin reddish tan head, not much of one though. The nose is fruity (cherries) with definite sour characteristics. Not a huge malt presence, but thereís definitely something nice and round here, lively, a little salty, somewhat lactobacillis. Definitely a flemish sour. Exceptionally lively on the tongue, really quite delightful, all those buggers make something nice. The flavors are completely in line with the aroma. More sour elements seem to sneak up, again sharp cherries. Those lactobacillis give this those salty yogurty elements that I love so much in the style, but here itís much more subdued than in their grand cru. This is much more of a sessionable sour. Clean fruity finish, breaking into a sour lingering aftertaste. I enjoy this, and Iím glad I can get it locally now!

Nice golden brown color with a fast fading tan head. Aroma is wine like and sour. Has a nice taste-starts off sweet but finishes sour. Tastes like cherries with a slight bit of hops. My first Flemish sour but definetely not my last. Good stuff!

Fukito (1018) - Santiago, CHILE - APR 7, 2007
Tap at Afspaning, march 07. Slight, winey, aroma and a toffee touch. Full, sour, red fruits, vinegar-caramel flavor with a touch of wood at the end. Medium to light MF, very dry palate, satiating. Very nice, red-dark copper color with a fine, beige lace leaving head. Characterfull, refreshing and tasty oud bruin.

screwcitybeer (3) - USA - MAR 30, 2007 does not count
Poured out of a 8.5oz bottle. Nice mysterious, dark red. Never had a flemish red before. Immediate aroma of red wine vinegar and oaky funk. Chug this and youíll need an alka-seltzer - sweet on the front of the tongue, but mouth puckeringly sour on the sides of the tongue. A bit more carbonation than I like, but I think leaving it open, warming 10 degrees, and then drinking, Iíd like it even better. After this, I canít wait to try my bottle of Rodenbach Grand Cru

Bottle. Rich caramel color with an off-white head. Tart aroma. Fruity, tart flavor with some oak. Medium body. LIngering tartness. Not as sour as the grand cru - some residual sweetness.

vyvvy (5858) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Pours dark crimson / brown that is clear with a nice tan head. The aroma is woody and tart with light cherry, vinegar and leather - very clean and sharp. Medium body that is somewhat crisp with a good amount of unobtrusive carbonation. The flavor starts sharp and tart with sharp citric flavors and only a hint of sour cherries. The finish has some metallicness and not much else added. An okay Flemish sour.
