flemdawg (529) - Naples, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Deep reddish brown body with an ample light tan head of tiny bubbles. Sour cherry with hints of wood and general funkiness in the aroma. Flavors od more cherries of the sour variety, an earthiness and mustiness as well. A nice dry finish that left me wanting more.

574deadzone (994) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Pours a glowing ruby in the light, dull brown otherwise, with a thin khaki head that leaves some soapy lace. Nose involves malt vinegar, some oak, cherry, some grape, and some dust. Somewhat sweet, fairly tart. Light body, active, tacky, with a dry-ish oak finish. Decent brew, though not especially interesting.

Fluxing (264) - POLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Warka 06.03.2015. Kolor bordowy, idealnie klarowne. Piana wysoka, lekko bezowa, powoli opada, zostawia gruba warstwe ok 1 cm, ktora praktycznie juz dalej nie opada oraz calkiem niezly lejsing. W aromacie winne, wisniowe, kwasne, lekko octowe, aromat srednio intensywny, ale przyjemny. W smaku polpelne, caly smak to praktycznie powtorka aromatu, kwasnosc na srednim poziomie. Ogolnie w smaku jest za slodkie, mocno zaklejajace, a kwasnosc jest na tyle niska, ze nie stanowi odpowiedniej kontry. Natomiast w odczuciu bardzo gladkie i aksamitne, moze minimalnie drapiace od alkoholu. Goryczka wlasciwie niewyczuwalna.

BoostIPA (1198) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a light brown with amp off white head. Aromas of sugary candied fruit, molasses. Taste is semi sweet. Flavors of generic fruit and oak. Actually not as cloying as I thought it would be. Not tart or sour at all. No real funk to be had here either. It’s pretty pedestrian. Fruity, caramel, oak. Some components of a Baltic porter as well. Pretty mediocre. Meh.

jandd1983 (2505) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 10, 2014
It poured a dark ruby/brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was sour with cherries. The taste was similar with some port wine notes, vinegar, fruits and some funk. Decent.

From tap in a harour café in Zeebrugge. Reddish brown. Beige, dense head. Sour aroma of red berries. Similar taste. Red currant juice. Refreshing.

Rosslew (185) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2014
Got sour smell. Has a tinge of vinegar with the yeast in taste. Very little fruit. Found mouthfeel a bit watery. Lacked a bit of flavour for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (645) - 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 (131) - 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 (1992) - 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.
