Outstanding beer. I’ve had this twice, most recently from a bottle at the Publick House in Brookline, MA. Beautiful red color. Foamy, white head that dissipates quickly. Notably tart and sour, but not overwhelmingly so-- just enough to round out the barley. Fruity aroma, in my girlfriend’s words, "like a super wine". Slight bitterness. Perfect, medium-light body and effervescent carbonation. My favorite beer next to Vuuve White. Find this if you can.

Bottle. Pours a bronze red\brown with a minimal off-white head. Aroma of fermented cherries, and alcohol. Flavor is sweet up front, fruity, carbonated with a sour tart finish. Good body, ok brew.

Beautiful. Smells of cherries and red berries. Pours a wonderfully dark brown color with a minute head. It does have some wine characteristics but the traditional slight sourness is wonderful

Definitely a unique beer. Smells like berries and red wine. Has a very wine-esque taste with some pleasant sourness. Nice tingling mouthfeel. Tastes almost like a lambic. Very nice.

Chewy aroma with sour cherries,...nice and funky and fruity. Amber-brown in color with a thing off-white head. Wow, sour flavor just explodes in your mouth with lots of cherries and other malt flavors. It ends fairly abruptly after the initial excitement. Thin body, fairly crisp and a dry finish. Fascinating...thanks Dave for sharing this one, straight from Belgium.

Dark ruby color, big tan head. On tap at the brickstore for my birthday. Crisp and spicy aroma. Slightly sour with a red fruit taste. First adventure with the style and it was good. The second glass was better than the first.

A dark ruby color with a very fruity taste. You can almost taste the cherrys in this one. It has an alcohol feeling to it higher than it’s %. All in all a good beer.

I think me and any Flanders officially dont get along. It pours a mildly headish ruby brown smelling frankly like sour patch kids, vinegar, and alcohol. The taste is light, lighter than the smell leads you to believe. It’s not my favorite, but it did finish with a saki clean, like a good Flanders. The body is a little light, though from other’s I’ve had.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2006 Pours mahogany into a snifter. Medium-sized bubbles. Cherry and vinegar aromas. Bubbly with up front dry cherries and a lingering vinegar finish.

Bottle. Dark amber to red pour with almost no head at all. A sour but yet sweet aroma to it. Has a cidery, hint of cherry flavor. I was really impressed with this. It got better with every taste.
