Tart cherry aroma experienced after the dark red pour. Decent head. Initial taste seems sweet at first, but finishes with a pleasant tartness. Enjoyable

750ml bottle. Pours dark redish brown with a quickly discipating creamy white head. Initial aroma is sweet fruit with slight vinous and/or acetic elements. Body is medium full mainly from the younger of the blend. Depending on the age of the blend the sourness will vary. This sample was much more sour than others that I have had that have been almost cloyingly sweet. This beer is outstanding. A good balance between the younger more sweet beer in the blend and the assertively sour older beer. I recommend letting the beer age more so that the balance is there, as well as the complexity. A great beer to end the night of tasting on.

Just tried this one for the first time... quite possibly the best tasting beer that I’ve ever tried. A crazy blend of sour, sweet, and fruit tasting. Go out of your way for this one!

Iv had sours before and liked them a lot but this one has a strange after taste to it. I dont enjoy this sour. Metallic comes to mind when tasting it. Has great red color darker then the other sours iv had. Smells great.

Nice sour beer. Thin head, cloudy medium brown pour (on tap). Not megasour, but it was a little sweet for my taste. Quite drinkable, could be a session beer, if one can apply that to a high-flautin’ sour like this.

My very first sour ale or Flemish Red. Aroma was off-putting to my wife, a bit like worcestershire with sour fruits and hints of cider vinegars. I thought it similar to a strong fruited wine. Appearance was reddish brown with purple and orange hues...a nice looking brew. Taste was fantastic, very winelike with so many different subtelties. Cherry flavors, definitive oakiness. It drinks extremely easily. I could drink it all day. Dangerous!

DerDoppelbock (22) - Aachen, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2006
Stark an Wein erinnernder Geruch, säuerlich und voluminöse Blume, mit Malztönung. Der erste Schluck verdeutlicht, dass es sich hierbei um ein „Flemish Sour Ale“ handelt. Geschmacklich zeigt es dann die Vorzüge dieser doch eigenen Biersorte auf und kann sich mit Süffigkeit behaupten. Fruchtig-säuerlicher Antrunk, hält sich aber in Grenzen, und im Mittelteil kann sich das volle Bouquet entfalten. Der Abgang baut glücklicherweise das aufgebaute Aroma nicht ab und bildet so ein gutes Finish. Sehr gut!
