Ok, so this is a Flemish Sour, and I don’t like sour too much, so I wasn’t expecting a miracle. Still, the aroma and taste was interesting, albeit a bit syrupy at first. If you ask me, skip this one and go for Gouden Carolus instead.

This is my first sour - so how do I rate it? I have nothing really to compare it to...that being said, I have a pretty good idea of what’s going on here. First thought was fresh apple cider, which turned into basalmic vinegar. Prune juicy. Raisins. Sweeter than I expected - my wife thought this very drinkable and reminded her of champagne and tea (Kombucha). Maybe re-visit this one when I have a better grasp of sours.

Reddish-brown, almost mahogany color with a nice beige head, slightly rocky, disappears fairly quickly.
Aroma of apples, spices. Cloves?
Taste is a nice balance of sour with some sweetness. Somewhat cider-like, but also a very "winey" beer. Alcohol barely noticeable.
Love this beer! One of my favorites.

What a fantastic beer in this style. Starts with cherries, finishes with sour apple...but very, very balanced. Ready for another.

Beautiful Sour Ale, comparable to the Grand Cru by Rodenbach. I prefer the Rodenbach because of it’s depth where as this just has a stronger late sour yeast pop.

This.is.divine. My first exposure to the Flemish reds. This and Victenaar (missing an h?) will always be in my top ten. Divine queens of the brew.

Bardzo pyszne piwo. Kwaśne, mocno czuć aromaty czerwonego wina - zarówno w wyglądzie, jak i aromacie i smaku.

Awful. Overwhelming smell of malt vinegar , overwhelming taste of malt vinegar. £5 for the bottle and it was undrinkable . Never again.

Bottled, beautiful deep ruby brown, tan head, strong fruit aroma. Starts with a full sweet fruit flavor, finishes with a tart citrus. somewhat cloying. Almost felt like dipping an eggroll in it...
