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

Quite sour taste, it smells like white cheese, which isn't a recommendation.

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.

This is 700 for me and I raise my glass to toast my good friend Palidor19. The aroma is like apple cider vinegar with caramel. The appearance is dark red brown with a small thin head. The taste is just like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall I am just not impressed, this is more like a wine than a beer. I think the problem with this beer is that I havenít developed a taste for the style.

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: 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.

Didnít have a full glass of this, but what I had was memorable enough to write about here. Eccentric nose of ketchup coincides with the vinegarette flavors. There is a depth of flavor that is overwhelmed by the harsher characteristics consisting of a sturdy fruit backbone and balanced sourness. Light and earthy, the first word that comes to mind is bizarre.

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.
