3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Some brett and lactic acid funk... with some sweet notes blended in
Appearance: Clean, Dark Brown with reddish highlights pours with off white head which does not last too long
Flavor: Starts off intriguingly tart and funky but is replaced with a flavor of cherries and some sweetness (Would be a nice after dinner drink)
Palate: Complex flavors with dark fruit and cherries flooded over with some sour notes which finish slightly sweet on the tongue
Overall: For a Flanderís red seems to be dumbed down a bit.. the sourness and funk is very restrained almost to it coming off a little too sweet. If it s possible this would be a gateway Sour beer (Better ones are Goudenband and Rodenbach)

1.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Dark brown beer with a small head. Strong aroma...smell of wine. Is this wine? Clearly, you can taste wine...fruity beer. Since I donít like wine and find this beer too sour...I decided to throw it in the sink. Iím soooooo disapointed knowing that this beer comes from my second best beer producer country, Belgium...we should read strong wine on the bottle, not strong beer.

Dark reddish Brown with asmall quickly dissipaing head. Viegary "wine-ish" smell. Some Coca Cola like aromas. Tastes sour and sweet at the same time. No hps whatsoever is detectable nor is the alcohol noticeable. Gives the distinct impression if balsamic vinegar. Nice and sourwith hints of dried fruits. Sour finish that sits on the tongue for a good long enjoyable time.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful ruby-brown pour with a fabulous, creamy head. Aroma is mildly sour with nice underlying fruity notes and green apple, green grape. Mild, tart, soft and luxurious in the mouth, like very sweet green apples. A wonderful mix of sweet and sour. Extremely drinkable. I wish I could get this for a better price.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml - exp date Oct 2007 - Aroma is strong: red wine, yeast, red vinegar, and a hint of cherries. Pours a deep red with a nice fluffy light brown head that wonít quit, great lacing. Flavor is milder than aroma leads on, but still very flavorful. Red wine, candi sugar, yeast, red grape juice, and oak. Palate is tart, but sweet. As I kept drinking the bottle I liked it more and more. This is a very mild sour and very tasty too! My wife loves it.

citrus, ginger, REALLY sweet flavor, lot of head. Almost tastes like a dessert wine and can probably be served with a dessert course.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Simply incredible. This might be one of the BEST examples of a Flemish Sour you can find. A deep ruby red color with a khaki color head. Aroma was vinegary and sweet and fruity, very sharp. The flavor of this beer is so stinkiní complex. There is a fruity, sharp, malty character that is just incredibly tasty. The best I might be able to sum the flavor is like an incredible basalmic vinegar, but that really doesnít do it justice. The only negative thing was the slight taste of acetone in the finish, which Iím not sure where that comes from. At any rate, this is one great beer which I am glad to be able to buy anywhere at anytime.

Outstanding beer. Iíve 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 girlfriendís 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
