4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle 2014 edition, from Bier-Deluxe.
Dark red body with a medium, quickly dissipating, fizzy, beige head.
Aroma with a lot of sweet, wooden barrel notes, vanilla, red wine, sweet-sour berries, overripe fruits, some ripe banana, some sweet malts.
Tastes delicious, quite sour, with barrel notes, vanilla, wine, overripe fruits, sweet-sour berries, apples, leather, even some barnyard notes, no Weizenbock notes at all.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with an average to soft carbonation.
Finishes smooth, sour, dry, wooden, fruity, a bit leathery, subtly alcohol warming.
Really surprising! As mentioned by others, this clearly is a Flemish Red and if I didn’t know it I would never guess this is a barrel aged Aventinus. Very tasty, quaffable and greatly balanced, the alcohol is well hidden. Among my favourite Schneider Weisse beers and one of the best Sour Reds I’ve had so far, even though it isn’t categorised as such.

-pours a murky brown with a small,creamy,quickly dissipating,beige head
-low-medium carbonation visible
-oak,vanilla,grapes,overripe banana,caramel,toffee,balsamic vinegar
-medium carbonation,medium-full body (Feels lighter than expected)
-alcohol very well hidden
Almost unrecognizable from it’s base Beers (Tap6 & Aventinus Eisbock).
Reminded me a lot of a Flanders Red a la Rodenbach.
Very good though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a surprisingly clear body (there goes my childhood wisdom about the unavoidable haziness of wheat beers), dark copper in colour, with a small head that leaves some lacing. Sour and strong aroma of tart fruits, red berries and cask wood. Complex and lovely strong flavour of acidic and tart fruits, tart red berries, red wine and cask wood. Moderate to light sweet and moderate sour taste. A brilliant beer!

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lovely nose: strawberry, cherry, raspberry and aceton. Lovely taste: oaky, cherry, ciric acid, vinegar, vanilla. Lovely mouthfeel. Lingering fruity aftertaste. Mjammie mjammie mjammie.
Weisenbock? No. Vlaams Rood? Yes. Go for it if you like sours, avoid if else.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with a big tan head which dissipates somewhat quickly. Aroma is tart a little vinegary and oddly reminiscent of soy sauce. Flavor is tart and fruity with a fair amount of malt to bag it up. Just a little sweet in the finish though the aftertaste is mainly tartness.
