250ml bottle from The Beerhive. Very thin off white head disappears quickly, thin ring of lacing. Body is murky brown with a slight hint of red. Nose is sour apples, yeast, white wine. Flavour is sour apple, lemon, Refresher bars, sour cherry, tart finish with a hint of bitterness. Light carbonation, gentle mouthfeel, dry finish. Very enjoyable.

Dégustée en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina la veille de la rentrée scolaire. Cette bière offre tous les attraits visuels propre à une Rouge Des Flandres réussie: rouge presque brune, bien mousseuse mais la mousse ne persiste pas indéfiniment, belle effervescence du fond du verre. Très inspirante. Au nez de jolies notes boisées se mêlent aux douces vapeurs acétiques. La barrique est en finesse et l’ensemble est boisé, fruité et complexe. Douce et légère en bouche, la bière a un corps mince proposant des saveurs toutes en subtilités. Outre l’acidité somme tout modérée, les saveurs de petits fruits rouges se marient parfaitement au bois et à cette effervescence quasiment piquante. Très facile à boire!

Bottle, 250 ml. Rich wine-ish aroma. Funky, oaky. Beer pours with cream head which changes in a while to pretty little lace. Fresh and little bit sour in taste. Middle bodied, balanced carbonation.

33cl, boite. Légère, agréable à boire, fruits rouges et doucement amère. Une classique que j’avais oublié, pas mécontent d’en avoir retrouvé :)

Interesting blend of young and old beer. Unique sour taste in a Belgian Red Ale. The taste isn’t as bad as the smell.

Heavy fruit and port wine like aroma. Heavy brown body with a reddish hue. Light tan film head. Dark fruit tang. Port wine quality with a dry crisp finish. Enjoyable and refreshing.

clear reddish-brown colour, medium-sized beige-ish head; aroma of vinegar, sour cherry, woody notes and some lemon; taste of vinegar, dry wine notes, sour cherry and berries, some caramel, oak barrel, and citruses - excellent Sour beer

islay (1540) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2015
11.2 oz. bottle, consumed on 7-14-15. Pours a nice, hazy, medium brown with a slight amber tint. Small to moderate amount of beige head. Looks good. Scents of tart apple, crabapple, cranberry, lemon, and chocolate. Lightly tart flavor. Subdued tartness for the style. I wouldn’t even call it sour. Quite malty in flavor. Applejack/calvados flavor. Not my favorite set of flavors. Light to medium body. Frothy in the palate. Insubstantial palate effects. Of historical importance and certainly not a bad beer but has been repeatedly eclipsed by superior, more modern, and more extreme takes on the style.

mateuszk (1030) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle. Brown/dark red, white small head. Aroma of red wine, wood/oak and some toasted/caramel malts. In taste sweet at first then low sour with vinous notes. Finish is dry, sour with oaky and red wine notes. I prefer Grand Cru version but this is quite nice too.
