I can not appreciate this style, the winney taste distracts for me. The sweet and sour I can understand but it just does not come together for me

on tap at Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Philly. it was awful. tasted like bad candy and rotten apples. way too sweet. way too sour. alcohol at the finish just not a compliment to anything. it finished really musky. yeah - not a fan. but maybe thats b/c I donít like sour ales but didnít know it until now?

UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours a bronze red\brown with an off-white head. Aroma of fruit and alcohol. Flavor is sweet, fruity, with a sour tart finish. I didnít care for this at all, and halfway through the bottle i got bored and dumped mine.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle. Smell is sour grapes and butter. Dark red body with lovely white head. Taste is pungent sour half & half, butter, some cider. Brutal on the palate. Never had a flemish sour before, and I may steer clear of them in the future. Good lord.

First time ever reviewing a Flemish sour so Iím not to sure how there suppose to taste but here we go. Pours very dark clear reddish brown, massive fizzy head that had moderate retention. Weak aroma, I think I can smell some malts and Iím picking up some kind of weak sweet fruit aroma. What the hell is this taste!!!! Insanely sweet way sweeter then I ever imagined it would be, I was expecting a sour beverage but I got this. Maybe possibly sour caramel flavor but what the hell is that?!?!?!?!? Not bad tasting but I just canít handle the intense sweetness of this brew, would never be able to drink more then one in a night. I shall rereview

Tastes like a light vinegarette dressing. Would go great on my salad, but I donít know about drinking an entire bottle.

This was too winey for me...I donít usually mind Red Ales from Belgium, but this was not up my alley.

Black beer with little head retention. The aroma is sweet/sour and kriek like, and the flavour is thick and syrupy with a sweet/sour and kriek feel. Overall a very disappointing beer.
