Draft pour at Brouwers Cafe as part of the sour fest. Pours a dark ruby red color with a thin ring head. Sour cherry and mixed berry aroma. Flavor is much of the same with a nice oaky background. Can’t go wrong here. Great stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014 edition, 8% ABV. Bottle (1 pint) from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Lovely rusty/mahogany colour, slightly hazy. Finger-thick light beige, cracking, rapidly diminishing head. Aroma of sour cherries, aged vinegar, red wine, oak, caramel, tobacco. Medium body, soft carbonation. Taste has moderate vinegary acidity upfront; a fruity, well-balanced middle; and a fairly brutally tart finish, though pleasantly mellowed by the barrel-ageing.

An Oude to Rodenbach- bottled aged for about 2 yrs - pours opaque, mahogany brown, khaki head that recedes. Nose is classic Flemish red. Oak, lactic acid, leather and dark fruits. Woodsy, leather, vinous dark fruits and that acidic tart dryness you're looking for in a Flemish red. Long sour finish that resonates. Rodenbach of the west. Well done

Notes of oak and fermented fruit on the nose. On the palate, it is quite tart, but a nice sweetness comes in to balance things out. Refreshing.

Bottle. Mahogny ruby in color with a beige head. Red berries, tart fruityness, wooden oaky notes and vinegar in aroma. Nice, quite good vibes already from this one. In taste there’s even more oak and tart fruits, which have been vinagered for a while. Pleasant mouthfeel. Leather and fruity sweetness in the end.
