This was too winey for me...I don’t usually mind Red Ales from Belgium, but this was not up my alley.

Smells like vinegar, tastes a lot like a top notch cider, and really quite good. I love this style, and this is a nice example.

Very good Flemish Red Ale - one of the best. Slightly more sour than the Bourgogne de Flanders and Rodenbach, making more traditional, beutiful color

UPDATED: APR 19, 2003 A lovely sweet/sour midpalate and a very smooth finish. Best at 60F where the flavor was rounded and refreshing. No hops aroma or bitterness. Titratable acidity 1.4% tartaric; pH is 3.6.

Dark red and brown in colour with not much foam. This is a sour brown ale with an oaky dryness. There is a grape skin like feeling on the finish. Not bad.

Pours dark with a sour aroma assailing my senses. First tastes (at a much colder tempurate than the bottle specifies) are of soy and vinegar. Once the ale warmed, fruit tastes overwhelm the vinegar. Finish is still a little sour but well adjusted by the malt.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 This beer really grew on me. This first time i thought it was nothing special, but everytime i went to the shop i took one bottle home with me. I had this beer many times now, and for me this is really as good as it gets. Dark-amber coloured. A bit of vinegar aroma, which is also present in flavor. Sweet and thick, a bit fruity and also some ’oak taste’. Sour finish. Absolutely fantastic.

Medium dark, amber coloured beer with a big head. Odd sweet a bit sour aroma. The taste is sweet, fruity, sour, a like other flanders red ale but without the wineous character. Sweet-sour after taste.
