1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Dark red pour like cola. Smelled like sour fruits and vinegar. Tasted like vinegar and candy-apple. At first I liked it... although I couldn’t even finish the bottle it got so bad. I would not recommend this--especially considering how expensive it is. This beer practically gave me nightmares.

Pours large, lively head, then settles to a light film. Reddish brown color.Smells of oak, caramel and slight vinegar. Tastes a bit sweet, some cherries, with some tartness to go with the acetic. Light body. Refreshingly good for the style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Red/burgundy color topped by a foamy head, great carbonation. Aroma of apples, cider, cherry, oak. Sweeter than I remembered, yet tart and bitterless, ends on iron notes. So refreshing. My mouth gets watery with each sip. I am not tired of this one, even after numerous times. My second favorite Brune des flandres after Rodenbach Grand Cru.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, dark red, ruby port like with small head. Sour vinegar aroma, but a well balanced taste of tart cherries, raspberries. Dry and refreshing, very well done. A complex and sophisticated taste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown with reddish hue. Large, dense off-white foamy head that fades slowly and leaves foamy lace. Strong aroma of sour yeast, cranberries, barnyard. Taste is a juicy sweetness with tart balance, cranberry and apple, with a deeper, sweeter black cherry finish. Medium body and very high carbonation make this like drinking an amazing sparkling juice.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Rater denne dagen derpå. Balansert og fin lukt, ike for slående. Lukter ikke kraftig munnfølels, mørke rødt, kullsyre. Så flott ut i glasset. Nydelig smak. Rett inn på topp 5. Hærlig balanse mellom surt og søtt. Ble som en liten komposisjon i munnen, fantastisk fylde, spesielt målt opp mot den lave alkoholprosenten.

6/9/14. 750ml. Pours reddish amber with a big beautiful viscous frothy head. Somewhat funky sour nose with a hint of wood. Nice complex sour. Balsamic vinegar, raisins, and cherries.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A dark rich red/amber hue with an exquisite creamy head. A subtle red wine (Cabernet/Merlot) aroma is noticed when it first approaches the mouth. Upon the first taste, it has a lush & soft mouth feel. Reminds me of tasting a dark chocolate coated fruit, maybe a fresh off the vine strawberry, which is amazingly sweet, yet tart all at the same time. A very nice drink that could compliment any meal. What it treat it was! I hope to enjoy it again soon.
