Belle apparence mais un odeur d’éthanol ressort. Au fur et a mesure de la dégustation, elle gagne en intérêt.

Everything good except its sour, taste crisp like wine & apple cider. Smell sweet seeing oak barrel. But sour is not something for me

750ml bottle in a snifter. Pours a medium brown color with a ruby tint. Aroma of sour cherries and vinegar. Flavor is different from the bottle than the last time I had this on tap, much sweeter and less sour. Taste opens up with sweet fruits, mostly cherry, grape and apple pie. Finishes with a tart, slightly vinegar flavor. Body is medium with medium to high carbonation. Overall I really enjoy this beer and am a big fan of Flanders reds in general.

On tap at Global Brew. Smells of sour fruit, vinegar, earth. Deep ruby color with an inch thick head. Flavors of red wine, wood, sour cherry, subtle funk. Finishes clean. A very approachable sour and a good place to start if you're just getting in to them. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A really well-rounded flemish sour. Sweet with the traditional slight sour nose. Very pleasant. Cherries are very present. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I couldn’t figure out what this reminded me of and so I asked my wife. She sniffed, tasted and said "Cider and beer mixed up", and she’s right ! Imagine a french " cidre doux" in the same glass as a dubbel. Stinks outrageously of scrumpy, sour apples, fermenting wine and god knows what else. You keep drinking it just to work it all out. Would love to have this on draught. Definitely worth a visit just for the experience !

Footy nose with hints of fruit. Reminiscent of a lambic. Tart and sour flavor. A lambic without the fruit, perhaps. Complex flavors that went way too sour for my taste.

I tasted this beer before I got my account with ratebeer, so I can’t really remember all the flavors.

A nice sweet/sour combination. I haven’t had many beers that really compare with this -- very unique. Kind of a cherry, fruity taste -- both the sweetness and the tartness remind me of cherry.
