Sour ale... Not my thing... but stands in my house, so have to taste it some day... Pours out brow-redish. A pretty good medium head, could hold longer for me, but sticks very good at the glass. The looks are ok... But then the smell, sourness is comming to me instantly, sourness, some fruits, and if I do an effort, I even get some spices to smell and some wood. This canít be my thing... Tasting will be a bit a torture I think... But itís ok. Maybe Iím getting used some more to the sour ales, but the sour-sweet taste is not to bad. Red fruits and spices, and cause of the sweetness the sourness is somehow moderated. Itís there, but not only sourness. Carbonation could be some more, and maybe some less soda-taste, but itís more drinkeable then I expected, specially after smelling.

clearly my palate isnít evolved enough to appreciate this.
deep ruby with almost no head.
smells of old cheap red wine, with a hint of pepper. tastes very sour (as i assume itís supposed to) to the point of almost wanting to spit it out. one the second sip there were hints of cherry and sour apples.
palate was pretty good if a little thin.
maybe i need to sit by a fire and sip at this next time.

Not bad looking, but absolutely not my favorite. Especially its aftertaste is disappointing. Cheers.

Bottled. Crimson, deep mahogany with a light lacy head. Sour, sour and more sour. Twist of something else, not sure what. A new experience but not my style.

My wife loves this one but itīs not my style of beer. Dark red-brown color and a sour aroma with a jint of cherry. the taste is also light sour and with some cherry in there. Medium body and a long sour finish.

Decent-looking, but thatís not the point here. The aromas of vinegar and even horseradish are strange and out of place. The finish is sickly sweet. I wondered if something had gone wrong with the bottle fermentation until I read other reviews. Maybe itís my unsophisticated palate, but I simply didnít like this "Flemish Sour Ale," and cannot vouch for the beer or the style. Sorry.
