UPDATED: SEP 9, 2009 A clear red colour. Interesting aroma of sweet fermentet fruit. Taste of cherries and sugar. The sweetnes is copansated by the refreshing sournes. Could maybe have a stronger palate. A very intresting and tasty beer.

Very different from other Fruit derived beer. Sweet fruity aroma with a taste of sour foremost followed by a bit of sweetness. Appearance best described as a tan frothy head on a redish brown cola colored liquid. It was very different yet very enjoyable. Recommend to people who prefer red wine over beer.

Pours a deep garnet red with a one finger beige head. The initial aroma is of red wine followed by expected Brett funk, and hints of straw, cork, and leather. Wow, huge plum flavor right off, followed by cherry candy and chocolate covered raisins. Hints of oak. I would prefer a more assertive Brett character to balance the sweetness a bit. Zero hop presence on this one. Medium body. Could be a good beer, but needs balance; as it is it’s cloyingly sweet. Perhaps this could be put down to an error in the blending process. Not a swigging or session beer by any stretch. This is one to be shared, and sipped, with friends.

Hmm. This is likely the first Flemsih Sour Ale that I have tasted. Pours an unusual metallic almost sparkling brown with a touch of red. Nice head forms with off white bubbles. Aroma is quite a unique combination of cut wood with old cheese and a dash of cooking sherry or port wine. Starts with a sugary sourness almost like a "sweet tart" and then finishes with a effervescence reminding me of a cherry soda. All sorts of complexities in the flavor with sour apple, dark chocolate, smoke, ginger, black cherry, notes of cedar and more. Like a soda with a medium to full body. A truly unique brew and a treat for me on this night.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2016 Azijn frisse kersen kriek zurig zurigheid. Donker van kleur en nauwelijks een schuimkraag. Een mooie balans tussen een Kriek en een zurig azinnig biertje. Heerlijk aangenaam.

Bottle, exp 6/2012
Beautiful sour aroma, berries and cherries with earthy overtone. Color is ruby/brown, brilliantly clear. Beautifully conditioned, liveaving nice lace on the glass. Flavor is good, but a bit disappointing. Full attenuation leaves nice dry finish, but complexity of aroma doesn’t follow through on the flavor. Rather bland but clean finish.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2007 This one is a typical beer in its style, initially very spicy and fruity, and more bitter and sour later on. Very surprising when you drink this one for the first time.

Aroma: lactic adid, vinagre, brett, rotten. The taste is way too sweet, and a lot of iron. Very nice appearance with a clear color. Ok head. Full bodied with lively carbonation. Not our type of beer at all.

Very interesting flavor. Aroma a lot like balsamic vingar and a slight sour fruuit smell. The beer is sour at first but finishes with a great aftertaste. Souress disipates more the warmer the beer gets. Dark brown color, very little head. With my first bottle, I wasn’t to sure. Second bottle I began to appreciate and enjoy this beer. Will never be my favorite but certainly a different beer I can appreciate for what it is. A beer worth appreciating!!

It pours a dark reddish colour, with almost no head. Aroma is really good and sweet, containing red wine and cherries. Taste is equally awesome and brings out everything that was present in the aroma, plus a nice touch of yeast, cherry stones and metal/minerals. Finish brings out a little too much funk which is the only bad thing I have to say. Great brew.
