4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2016 Bottle bought and consumed in May 2016 in a red wine glass.
AROMA: Balsamic vinegar. Red berries, some wood, I can kind of sense a very slight and low level dankness which comes through the alcohol evaporation. Nothing in terms of hops, more so vinegar and a fruity malt base.
APPEARANCE: Brown with a red hue. Large off white head. In a dark room would look totally dark brown however with additional light the hue ranges from ruby red to amber at the extremities of the glass, particularly towards the stem.
TASTE: Balsamic vinegar. Fresh water, very well hidden alcohol. Beautiful. One of the best features of this beer for me is actually the water which is very soft and pure.
PALATE: Sour but not overly so. Malt vinegar. Oaky tannins. Very refreshing. Long lasting gentle sourness offset by the wonderful watery base. The soft carbonation gently brings the wonderfully balanced maltyness to the forefront.
OVERALL: insanely well brewed and incredible tasting beer.

Clear dark beer with a small head, strong sour aromas from the beginning almost like a wine, the flavor is quite strong and bitter, with a mild malt flavor, but a strong bitter aftertaste.

Clear ruby beer with an off-white head and a sour fruity aroma. Flavour is tangy fruit, a sour berry hit and there’s a bit of malt to mellow those out a bit. It’s tart enough that I wouldn’t be rushing back for more but it’s quite tasty.

Sampled from a bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Sour, fruity aroma. Classic sour/sweet taste. Some sweetness, then balsamic vinegar and sour fruit taste, with hints of raspberry. Well-balanced taste with good mouthfeel. Refreshing, but rather sour for my taste.

Wow, wow, wow. Heavenly sour-sweet, an elevation of malt and tart, with just a hint of vinegar keeping it from the five-point range. Flanders=if it isn’t perfection, you can at least see it from there.
