Bottled. Hazy amber. Aroma of acidic grape juice. Dry and lightly balsamic. Citric acidity that is balanced by toffee and saccharine sweetness. More fresh and intense than complex, but I love this beer!

Beautiful copper color; huge creamy head; nice perlage. Cellary vinegar nose. Very sweet, malty, with the typical sourness. Not as complex as my favorite Duchesse de Bourgogne, but delicious!

250ml bottle. Red coloured with a white head. Aroma is sour, woody and vinegary. An extremely sweet beer that is never too sweet and has a long and sour finish. Lots of flavour and better than expected. Very good.

330 ml. bottle split with Kogymo. Procured from Willems & Zoon. I have never heard about this nor have I ever seen it before but apparently the name has quite a bit interesting history behind it. This is nothing like the original beer, no recipes appear to have been written down for the original & the original that was sold in Lier was apparently a sour & golden beer of 11,7% ABV, so nothing like this one. Pours a dark brownish amber. Nose is sweet foeder, barrel, balsamic vinegar & sugar. Taste is lightly metallic like some lesser glasses of Rodenbach Foederbier, tastes of malt, cherry, foeder, brown sugar sweet, light herbs, balsamic vinegar, flowers, caramel. Lightly watery. A lesser brother to Duchesse De Bourgogne but still this drinks pretty well even if its clearly not at the top of the game.

Reddish brown coloured. Very pleasant aroma with notes of vinegar and oak. Smooth and soft flavour with a fine balance between the sweetness and the sourness. A nice example of a very nice style.

Bottled, medium body, oily feel, lively, red, just a plain fav. of mine. This is every thing a good flemish sour ale should be...

Bottle, 5.8% as Caves - het bier van Lier. Sweet, fruity, caramelly aroma with a nice underlying sourness. Muddy dark orange colour. No or very unstable head. The flavour is quite sour, nicely citric and vinegary. Quite sweet to balance. Reminds me of Goudenband, and is almost as good. This one has a lower ABV which can be a bonus.

A surprising and impressive beer, this one. 25cL bottle pours a bright and clear reddish-brown, thin layer of white lace. Intense and tart aroma like sour red wine, whiskey-oak, and a bit of sour cherry. Inviting. Flavor is tart and juicy, with cherry and vinous notes, with mild acidity on light and lively mouthfeel. Grape-tangy finish. Wow. Damned interesting, damned likable, and refreshing to boot.
