11.2 oz. bottle. Aroma of vinous fruit, oak, yeast, and raisin. A definite sour character. A unique flavor: a mixture of tart and sweet. A lot of fruity notes -- cherry, grape, apple, plum, and apricot. Also some malty characters and spice. A big tart bite in mid mouth. Some lively carbonation. Dry finish. A very good beer with a complex and unique aroma and flavor. Well balanced.

Bottle.. ..Tart aroma, hints of fruit. Can tell that itís sour (mouth starts watering just by smelling). . .Dark brown, hints of ruby in the light. Tan head, good retention.. .. .sweet start, with funky belgian yeast notes. Tangy! YUM. . .. light carbonation, med body.... .Very drinkable yet sour Flanders Brown. Has a puckery sour aroma, but a good deal of sweetness keeps the sour at bay. Good find.

Looks rusty brown coming out of the bottle, but emerges in glass as a beautiful red with orange highlights. Thick mocha head retains a bit too well, suppressing aroma, but underneath it is balsamic vinegar and berries.
On the palate, itís a raspberry vinaigrette drizzled over cranberries, field greens and pickled fruit and vegetables. Fizzy, sour, smooth and very refreshing.

On tap at Map Room, Chicago. If youíre hesitant about sour ales-- this oneís just sweet enough to not turn you away. I liked the slightly sweet taste to offset the Belgian sour flavor. Almost like if someone poured a little New Glarus Belgian Red into a glass of Rodenboch Grand Cru. Well done and quite enjoyable.

clear brown, frothy tan head with some irregular lacing. vinegar, oak, plum, raisin, lemon, caramelized sugar, apple, cherry. medium sour, medium sweet. medium body, creamy feel, lively carbonation. definitely not as sour as many others of the style. rather intense sweetness underneath the puckery sour makes this a lot more drinkable than most sours ive had.

Aroma of wood and balsamic vinegar. Sour taste of vinegar, sauerkraut and fruits. Aftertaste of fermented apples. Not really my cup of tea.

750 mL bottle. Pours an amazing ruby red with thin beige head. What a color! Granny smith apples in the nose. More lemony zest as it warms. The taste is a complex sweet/sour. Lemon and sour cherry balanced with sweet malt. Light mouthfeel and a sweeter finish. This is one acidic beer - it was making my fillings ache! Very well crafted.
