UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 Bouteille. Bootlegger . Robe brune légère , reflets rubis, mousse beige clair peu persistante. Nez de caramel, légèrement boisé. Attaque douce et sucré. Bouche sur le fruit , douce acidité vineuse. On retrouve sur la finale des petites notes de chêne . Une petite douceur belge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silvan7 (655) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle @ home. Rosso rubino intenso, quasi violacea con schiuma beige fine non molto persistente. Aroma intenso, pungente, acetico e vinoso, di frutta a bacca rossa. Note di zucchero di canna e legno. Gusto dolce abboccato, acido, poco amaro. Non molto corposa, poco carbonata piuttosto calda. Meno equilibrata della Grand Cru. Comunque armonica ed interessante.

Paincane (134) - Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Opaque mahogany hued body with a thin tan head that is short-lived. Sweet malt and sour yeasty nose and flavors. Well-blended. A good Flemish Red-Brown ale.

Vignale (2003) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2014
Flaska från Beernavigator. Rödbrun klar vätska, lågt skum. Söt och lätt syrlig doft med honung, rost, läder, torkad frukt och aningen söt vinäger. Frisk, sötsyrlig, oxiderad, torkad frukt, läder, honung, snälla tanniner, och en lätt stenfruktskärnbeska. Lättdrucken, trevlig och hyfsat komplex.

Pours a short but long lasting head. Is sour, tasting a bit of red wine. A bit tamer than say.....Grand Cru.

RD400F (179) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle to Leffe glass, beer pours a hazy dark red/brown with a small white head that fizzles out. Aroma consists of sour fruit, apple, cinnamon, spices and some vinous notes. Complexity is high. Taste is sour fruit, backed by a good malt backbone and it’s somewhat similar to black forest cake albeit not as sweet. Palate is somewhat watery but the beer finishes quite dry. Carbonation is low for a Belgian and it’s not as robust in body as Duchesse de Bourgogne which does take away from this a bit. The sourness needs better balance as the beer seems a bit weak. Overall...not a bad beer but not something I’m going to seek out on a regular basis.
