750ml bottle in a snifter. Pours a medium brown color with a ruby tint. Aroma of sour cherries and vinegar. Flavor is different from the bottle than the last time I had this on tap, much sweeter and less sour. Taste opens up with sweet fruits, mostly cherry, grape and apple pie. Finishes with a tart, slightly vinegar flavor. Body is medium with medium to high carbonation. Overall I really enjoy this beer and am a big fan of Flanders reds in general.

Pours dark red/brown with a small head and a small amount of lacing. Aroma is vinegar with a hint of dark fruit. Taste is sweet/sour cherries, more dark fruit, bready, a little vinegar, with a lingering tart aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Coats the mouth. It’s my first Flanders Red and I like it.

A really well-rounded flemish sour. Sweet with the traditional slight sour nose. Very pleasant. Cherries are very present. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Footy nose with hints of fruit. Reminiscent of a lambic. Tart and sour flavor. A lambic without the fruit, perhaps. Complex flavors that went way too sour for my taste.

I tasted this beer before I got my account with ratebeer, so I can’t really remember all the flavors.

I had this in a bottle at the best bar anywhere, 28 Springs in Siloam Springs, AR! Its definitely a sour ale with a bit of vinegar on the nose, but sweet and fruity to the taste! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice sweet/sour combination. I haven’t had many beers that really compare with this -- very unique. Kind of a cherry, fruity taste -- both the sweetness and the tartness remind me of cherry.

All’olfatto si presentano aromi molto fruttati con sentori di aceto. Al palato si presenta una combinazione di dolce (eccessivo) e acido (leggermente astringente). Il gusto č quello dolce della ciliegia e dell’amarena, con sentori di aceto balsamico.
