Musty, sour aroma. Flavor is sour, spicy, fruity. A little caramel malt. Some warming alcohol--but canít taste it.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Poured into a tulip. 4.5 A: Opaque cherry mahogany color. One and a half fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is very good, especially with the ABV and a gerthy ring of lacing is left. 4.25 S: Supremely fruity with tons of cherry and berry notes. Sweet with notes of caramel and basement funk. Not a lot of acidity, but enough to tickle the senses and give some complexity. The bourbon is found on just the most superficial level. I doubt I would have found it if I didnít know it was in here. 4.25 T: The bourbon also doesnít do much in the taste. Mild acidity, but potent taste. Super fruity with the cherry/berry combo with some plum as well. Basement funk with damp, rotting wood. Reasonably complex with plenty of depth. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Mildly creamy and bubbly. No problems here. Super smooth. 4.25 D: Itís not packing a whole lot in the sourness category, but it tastes great and if it wasnít so expensive or hard to get, you could drink it all night and be quite happy.

douglas88 (6021) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 26, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a brown/reddish color with a small beige head. A big sour nose with fruit and vanilla. The flavor was complicated and complex with vanilla, sweet molasses, wood, intense sourness, acidic at times, deep Flemish brown character. Great presentation.

drowland (6038) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2013
Bottle during RBWG 2013.... juiceisloose, maybe? Deep red pour with a small khaki head. Tart, sour cherry aroma with leather, wood, acidity, and a touch of vinegar. Tart, sour cherry flavor with funkiness, barnyard, and deep earthiness. Nice!

Frank (2871) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2013
This stuff smells amazing: funky, fruity, sour, spicy. Tastewise, itís good and sour but a hair too sweet for my taste. Texture is a touch sticky but still not out of line. Really nice and complex thoug. If this was just a hair more dry and it would be perfect.

Remniscent of a Jacobins to me. A very well-rounded flanders red that has am ample sourness, lots of sweetness, and a balanced fruitiness.

Bottle shared poured a copperish light red color with aromas of wet wood, light tart fruit and some musk. Flavors are the same mostly light tart fruit and wet wood. Nice beer overall.
