UPDATED: APR 19, 2003 A lovely sweet/sour midpalate and a very smooth finish. Best at 60F where the flavor was rounded and refreshing. No hops aroma or bitterness. Titratable acidity 1.4% tartaric; pH is 3.6.

Smells strongly of vinegar typical of its style. The flavor was similarily sour. This was more balanced and drinkable than other sour ales, but still not for me. I did not enjoy this, but increased my ratings because I enjoyed this beer relative other sour ales.

Hits the mouth with a pleasant fruity taste, comes across sweet but not like a candy. Aroma is pleasant and the color is dark.

Really drinkable. Some think it is overpowering but it is well balanced. A decent beer for the masses and great introduction to a Flemish Sour.

This is a very interesting beer. Reminded me somewhat of a gueuse, but also of a spoiled Leffe that I once had and that was very sour. After the initial surprise of a sour taste comes a surprisingly well tasting beer. The maturing in oak casks gives it a very pleasent fresh fruity taste. This certainly asks for more than the single bottle that I had.

This is a strange one, the smell does not really invite to taste it, but once you get over this, the taste is surprisingly soft and sweet. Not for everyones taste, but it’s worth to give it a try !

Found this at a favorite pub in Maastricht and came highly reccomended from a friend. Great color and very interesting taste. A perfect blend of dry red wine and beer. Strong notes and taste of blackberry and nice smooth aftertaste. The only way I can really describe this beer is to imagine Blackberry juice and Iced tea with a lambic beer kick. Perfect summer afternoon brew.

This IS a Flander’s Red. A very well blended beer. Wonderful spiciness with great cherry notes. The sherry-like finish is classic. Send me more, Please!
