3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown with a fizzy head that disapears very quickly, the head almost looks like a soda pop being poured. Smells of grapes, apricot, raisins, prunes and sherry. Has a tartness, and a sweetness, tastes of deep fried potato, apple and red grapes. Very fruity and complex. Nice lacing.

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 couldnít 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.

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. Itís not my favorite, but it did finish with a saki clean, like a good Flanders. The body is a little light, though from otherís Iíve 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.

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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
25 cl bottle, bb 12.06.2016. Ruby coloured, hazy, with beige head that stands for a long time and nice lacing. Fizzy carbonation caused gushing. Aroma is acidic, fruity, somewhat winy. Very sweet, with winy and woody notes. Interesting, but definitely too sweet.
