3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with red highlights, medium off-white head, soapy lacing. Nose is acetic with some oak, black cherry, and blackberries. Flavor is a little less acetic than the nose suggests, cherries and a variety of berries mull around in the background. Medium bodied, assertive carbonation and a lingering acidity in the finish.

Pours super dark red with a small head. Hints of tart black cherry and vinegar. Very easy drinking and quite yummy. Carbonation makes it feel light on the palate. My second from Verhaeghe and have been impressed by both.

Pours dark red with a moderate head. Aroma is slightly tart but mostly sweet cherry. It’s well carbonated And sweet with just a mild tartness Anna Sweet dry finish. Decent beer but I was looking for something a little funkier

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of sweet tarts, caramel malts, some spice and fruits, plus a little bit of hops. Flavor the same, but something tastes off. Average texture. Not the best beer of the style, but it might be a bad bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle, best before 26/01/2014. Clear dark red body. Thin airy khaki head. Little loose lace. Interesting nose of oak and dark fruit. Complex aroma, light roasty malts, dark fruit, spice. Little vinegar. Lightly tart and sweet taste. Good soft but moderate carbonation, medium body, light viscosity. Indeed, this is a lighter ale with enough flavor and complexity to keep an enthusiast occupied, though it’s mostly a novelty for me. As far as Flemish Reds I’ve had, this is above average. Nice dryness, good fruity flavor, good balance of tart and sweet, not too much spice, nice wood. Good aftertaste. Nice one to savor through the afternoon.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of sour cherries and apples. Quite vinous. Dark brown colour with off white head. Lively palate. Taste is sour, with kind of a creamy finish. Not as good as Duchesse, but still a great beer.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. Beautiful sour/sweet aroma. Lovely dark colour with pale head. Elegant lacing. Gorgeous taste. One of my all-time favourites. Wish I didn’t have to share.

A surprisingly great flemish sour. Wonderfully easy drinking yet sour and sweet in a perfect balance.
