One of my all time favorite sour beers, on the sweeter side, not too sour as many in this style can be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tart, fruit forward with a beautiful red color and touch of sweetness. All the flavors are well blended all all the edges well rounded.

Not bad looking, but absolutely not my favorite. Especially its aftertaste is disappointing. Cheers.

Bottled, poured in a tulip glass. It pours a brownish red, with a light tan head. The head lingers around for quite some time. It has a strong aroma of fruits, tarts and some wine characteristics. It has a strong taste of fruits such as cherry and some melon. It is very palatable. It is an amazing beer overall!!

Très bonne bière brune, belle robe brun/rouge, fines bulles, un centimètre de mousse blanche. Goût très sucré, parfum de raisin, épaisseur en bouche... on a l’impression de boire du vin pétillant ! A découvrir.

Long lasting foam, deep red color, aroma of citrus and yeast, taste of tart red berries and balsamic vinegar.

Very good Flemish Red Ale - one of the best. Slightly more sour than the Bourgogne de Flanders and Rodenbach, making more traditional, beutiful color

Good carbonation with a nice crisp, dry taste of Cherries, smooth body and a full mouthfeel.Tart with a lightly sour taste of sour dark cherry flavor and a slight hint of oak with a malty finish. I much enjoyed this Flemish Red Ale, a very good balance between maltiness and tart sourness

Oh my God did I hate this beer. It just tastes sour and way too sweet which made me look at the back of the bottle for the expiration date. I don’t understand how its rated so highly on this site. I assume the fact that it is quite unique in its flavor that has put it in such high regard, but I think it’s just gross. And I knew from looking at the beer in the bottle that it wasn’t going to have much of a head, which, if you do manage to get, disappears very quickly. Overall this beer is not for me, not in the slightest bit. I guess I’m glad I tried it though, as it is very different, so I would recommend that you do the same if you are afforded the opportunity, you’re opinion of this beer might differ from mine.

11.2 oz bottle redish brown color with a fruity scent. Fruity taste surpasses aroma. Carbonation more like a champagne than a beer. A pleasant surprise!
