Thanks to eaglefan538 for sharing. Tremendous woody aroma. Mouth puckering sourness. Extremely tart with noticeable wood and dry fruit. Dry finish. Good, but definitely a sipper.

75cl bottle from Mother Kelly’s in London. It pours a deep dark ruby color with purple edges and the tiniest off-white head. The little foam dissipates immediately. Aroma is intensely sour and vinegarish with notes of wiod, basement, cherries and more wild berries. Taste is acidic with some sweeter fruit notes. More flavours of sour cherries, wild berries, wood and dusty basement. Some funk and lemon zest. Body is medium with lively carbonation. Overall, very good brew and quite a proper example of the style.

Pizzeria Paradiso keeps hitting them out of the park. Excellent sour, tart and sweet. Pours out dark brown/ruby, minimal head. Over the top sourness on the nose, a bit more subdued in the taste, but still a sipper.

Poured from bottle into snifter. Pours a mahogany color with a slightly off-white head about two fingers high. The head dissipates down to a few millimeters thick. Nice typical sour brown aroma - notes of cherry, sour fruit, some grape, touch of leather. Taste - very tart (obviously), lots of brett character with earthiness, touch of vanilla. Mouthfeel is a full body, thick on the tongue, and lively carbonation level. Finish is medium length and pleasant.

Bottle into a wine glass. Cloudy dark red-brown, minimal tan head. Big leathery, sour berry nose, earthy. Lots of vanilla oakiness. Very tart, some sweetness. Medium body, very acidic, pretty high carbonation, very effervescent. Pleasant mouthfeel. Long, dry finish. Very good.

Pours dark brown with a soapy beige head. Aroma of vinegar, musty barnyard, dark fruit, and wood. Extremely tart with sour cherry, hints of red wine, and oak. Outstanding!

Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Quite pleased to find this on draft for a growler fill at Whole Foods Short Pump. Pours a medium reddish amber, slight head. Aroma is sour cherry and very faint vanilla. Flavor is sour cherry, pleasingly tart without going over the top, with notes of vanilla and perhaps the faint hint of chocolate. A very nicely executed Flemish with the balance a touch more to the sour than the malt. Good acetic character.

"a fairly traditional flanders that has a bit more kick in the aroma department than the flavor. juuust a bit more simplistic, and less sour than expected, but damn tasty and drinkable. aroma of oak, tart cherries, leather. a tiny bit of sweetness and a smooth body. very nice beer, approachable and complex at the same time."
