Beelzebrox (39) - Enschede, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2015
Mostly dark brown with a red glow. Nose sour cherries, some moldy yeast. Taste sour cherries, earthy flavors like mold, nuts, wood, forest fruits. Aftertaste long sour and bitter, mouthfeel very dry. Very interesting. Kinda hard to drink, but its very fitting for a beer called Ypres.

Kolejny, fantastyczny trunek otrzymany od Hopestera. Jest to kolejne piwo z Browaru De Struise, o którym złego słowa nie można powiedzieć! Czerwonobrunatna barwa z lekko beżową pianą. Aromat bardzo przyjemny - kwaśne, czerwone owoce, nieco paloności. W smaku słodko-kwaśne, ze sporym akcentem owocowym. Przyjemnie rozgrzewający alkohol. Bardzo ciekawe, bardzo udane piwo. Nie pierwsze z tego browaru!

langeveld12 (292) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2015
The barrel ageing adds complexity and subtlety to this sour ale. It's smooth, fruity and vineous and the tannins seem to soften it all. It takes away the sharpness and the tartness of the sour ale. Gets better every sip. Really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

guiroul33 (255) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle 33cl @ Nuetniegenough. Vinegar, red wine, coca cola, oak,... A Great example of oud bruin, with the oak aged complexity on top.

fkoolen (580) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle at home, Reserva 2011. Deep burgundy red colour, beige foamy head. Rich roasted malty, fruity and vinous nose and taste. Very complex and deep with tones of calvados and ripe apples, red fruits and sour cherries, balsamico, cask and vanilla, some herbal notes. Big aftertaste, endlessly lingering fruity tardness. Medium carbonation, palate gets completely covered by the big body. Amazing, top notch in one of Belgian’s finest beer styles.

King_Alex_II (623) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 11, 2015
Brown clear color with beige foam. Light, but boozy barrel like smell. Ultra foamy mouth feeling with sour taste in the back and barrel aged bread on the tip of the tongue. Dry and partially sour aftertaste.

2011 vintage bottle from Beers’n’more. Pours dark ruby. Aroma of dried plums. Heavy and full taste. Not typical, but delicious!
