Light acetic acid on the nose. Opaque brown thin head. Good sour kick but not overwhelming. Good structure behind it. Finishes with lingering soreness. Great example of the style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very bright plum and cherry, tart, medium palate, lots of lacing and slightly syrupy but not too thick. Pretty good. Menu description says 6% ABV, I find it hard to believe, feels more intense.

Bottle at bar. Dark red/brown with medium bubbles. Smells fresh and biting, raspberries and the sour notes from gooseberry. Sour taste starting with a sweet lick. Enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity, berry and brown sugar aroma. Dark red clear liquid, white-brown head. Well balanced high sweetness and sourness. Bitter-sweet finish, soft carbonation. One of the best in its style!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The classic Flanders red that unlike Rodenbach which goes towards extremely sour is sweeter and more balanced. Pours red-brown with small head. Aromas of vinegar, cherries, a bit of barnyard. Taste is an explosion of sweet candy sugar and sour vinegar, lots of oak, spicy, fruity, apples, cranberries, sour cherries. Highly complex, you discover something new with every sip. The high sugar content kicks this beer into overdrive and makes this such a fascinating drink but also makes it more of a desert beer for me.

Bottle. Pours a deep ruby with a tan head. Aroma is little lacking with a tiny hint of citrus, but mostly carbonation. Flavour is fantastic with wine and grape notes a little sourness and a smooth almost sweet finish. Body is thin. Absolutely wonderful.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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

Had this on tap a few times at the Stumbling Monk in Capitol Hill, Seattle. Just an incredible beer. Very fruity. Sour without being overpowering. The color is gorgeous on it too.

I’m just getting into Flemish Ales, but after trying several I find myself confused by this beers high ratings. Far less tart than Monk’s and considrably less cherry than Petrus, this beer is middle of the road, very average, doesn’t stand out...
