Láhev 250 ml. Po nalití zajímavé aroma kyselých třešní a vinného octa, pěna je nízká, lehce nahnědlé barvy, rychle mizící. Barva piva je tmavě hnědá a při pohledu proti světlu září světle rubínovou čirou barvou. Chuť piva je kyselá vcelku příjemného a osvěžujícího rázu není vůbec hořké a ani příliš sladké. Pivo je zároveň dobře pitelné musím uznat že mě vůbec nezklamalo.

Ruby red. Can eke out a head if poured from a height - but disappears fast. Smell of cherries and aged oak. Close ur eyes and u can picture the sides of an oaken cask. Soft taste of cherries with a sour finish. Not too sour -just enough to tingle your senses. The smell and taste of the older beer (rotten cherries ? ) comes through somehow. Nice, refreshing beer.

Bottle at home. Pours reddish tinged with brown. Not much head. Some lacing. Not overly complex- will have to try the Grand Cru with more aged and less young beer. Pleasantly sour with cherry dominates with notes of oak and apple. Yeasty and somewhat tangy. Overall impression is on the sweet side. Somewhat thin. Decent. Don’t need another.

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2014
25cl bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a hazy deep red with pinkish head. Soft, sweet sour aroma. Taste is indeed refreshing with light sour cherries and mild drinkable character, like a sour Tizer. Lovely.

Doofgoblin (338) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Aroma of cherries. Taste is cherry some faint sour apple and a pleasant sweetness of beer--some faint oak flavors round out the character. Not over sour but a nice bit of sour pair with some fruit beer notes. Really good.

0,25 fles. Koperachtig met weinig schuim. Aroma is zuur, ook wel wat turf, herfst. Smaak is zuur met iets zoete afdronk. Mooie body voor slechts 5.2%

Bottle - brown pour with an average head. Has a sweet smell and a sour candy taste along with some cherries. Medium mouthfeel.

Ruby pour. Aroma is malty yeastiness. Taste is light berries, light vinegar tang. Very easy sour. Bit too sessional for a Flanders red.
