A beer with a very bizarre taste. I can’t say that i’ve tried anything like this before although whether thats a good thing or not...

Pure balsamico - and a quality one too - in the nose. Flavor is sour of course with strong cherry flavors to balance. I’ve had it with foie gras and that’s a match made in heaven. This might be my favourite beer.

Bottle from Ghent. Pours a reddish brown colour with a thin head. A fruity & sweet smelling aroma. Has a well balanced sour taste. Give me a Duchesse over a Rody every time!

Bottle, bar. Red-brown, nice head.Smell is sweet, rich, inviting. Strikes the middle between kriek and Rodenbach. It’s less sweet as kriek, and hints towards the sourness of a gueuze. Very tongue-friendly beer, which lets it drink easily. Very good.

Fruity, sweet and strange, but had a full and even body/taste. Need some tasting before getting used to it I suppose. Very nice brown/reddish color, fruity smell.

Ruby red with brownish tints and a nice white head. Smell is very nice with aromas of tart fruit and some malt. Medium bodied with good carbonation and flavors of tart cherries, malt followed by a fair amount of sweetness. Not overly tart with the sweetness overpowering the sour in the end. I’ve heard it gets more sour with age and while it is pretty amazing at this point a little more sour would be welcome. Overall a great Flanders Red and at 10$ a 750 in my area, it is my regular go to sour.
