From can. Fantastic aroma of red berries, currants, cherry and lovely soft wheat. settles light brown, medium red in the glass with nice lacing. Taste is perfectly sour and sweet with a wonderful fruity zest to finish and a bitter, cheesy depth. An excellent flanders and one of the best commercial beers in the world.

Zilb (100) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2016
Bue 2 mois APRES DLC. Première bière "Sour", trop bizarre ! Bière marron claire, avec reflets rougeâtres. Peti col de mousse qui tombe tout de suite. Arôme de vinaigre léger. En bouche, acidité qui se se fait sentir sans être gênante. Final sur la vinaigrette/acidité/tomate confite/bois. Assez douce malgré tout. Très spéciale, je ne sais pas trop comment la noter. Je l’ai bue très facilement malgré son acidité. Avec une salade vinaigrée ça peut se tenter.

SylvainCFC (46) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2016
Robe brune/rousse, candi, teintes ruby. Mousse blanc cassé courte compacte, tenue moyenne. Nez acide, vinaigre balsamique soutenue par une légère douceur de framboise. La fermentation spontanée apparaît évidente au nez. Bouche douce d’un malté caramel qui glisse vers une acidité légère. Présence du chêne indéniable, en légèreté. Acide lactique. Texture acqeuse moyenne, carbonatation légère fine. Très propre, d’une douceur légèrement sèche en fin de bouche. Notes fruitées délicates. Rouge-brune flamande archétypale. Equilibre parfait.

Rood bruin bier met beige schuimkraag. Geur: zurig, hout, wat kersen. Smaak: aangenaam mild zurig, moutzoetig, wat hout. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht zurig en licht zoetig met een klein beetje tannine. Een klassieker die verfrissend lekker blijft.

Gehbe (50) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUN 12, 2016
Aroma fruity, red berries, black currant, some apple, hints of wood, spice and caramel. Tastes berry tart with some sweetness to balance, very light on the palate. Highly drinkable, not too complex but enough character.
