4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
RB BE #400: 25 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden amber to deep maghoni with a creamy/crispy light brown head. Cherry fruity, light woody and dried fruity aroma. Flavourful, slight woody, dried fruity yet fresh from the cherries. Sweet, yet not overly so. Finish holds a nice dryish and very controlled sour note to a distinct fruity note. Nice

A red brown beer with a beutiful light brown head. The aroma is sour with notes of overripe fruits. The flavor is lovely sweet and sour with notes of overripe cherries and a sourness that draws the mouthwater and with a nice woody dry end.

A deep red beer with a fine beige head. The aroma is very sweet like over-ripe grapes and plums. The flavor is dry and sour with hints of sweetness. It is very acidic - almost like a gueze with notes of wood and plums. A very lovely beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 25 cl) Reddish brown with a pretty, tall head that sticks to the glass. The tartness comes first - almost vinous - to be relieved by an almost sticky sweetness. OK balance though. A genuine Flemish sour to the sweet side. 210599

(Bottle 25 cl) Clear, brown beer with more than just a touch of red. Huge, brownish head. Woody, oaky notes with some sweet, roasted malt. But everything is pretty much flushed away by the extreme sourness that makes for one of the most quenching and sour of sour ales. Not the usual metallic edge here. 030498

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Dark amber coloured, small beige head. Sour grape and cherry aroma, almost red-wineish. Flavour is sour grapefruit, cherry, apple and some vanilla. Almost like a more sour Madeira-wine. Some wooden hints also all the way through as it gets warmer. Redwineish aftertaste. Wellbalanced, but sadly a quite thin palate.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Deep ruby, almost clear, airy head. Tart aroma of black cherries. Intensely citric with notes of wood. Light bodied with spritzy mouthfeel and lots of freshening acidity. Lightly earthy with notes of blueberries and tart cherries. Excellent!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber color. Light nose, with some sweetness, candi sugar and sourness. The flavor is too simple, more deceiving, light mouthfeel, poorer than the other Verhaeghe...

Bier rouge: Red brown with little white head. The carbonation is lively. The aroma and taste is sour/sweet from vinegar/oak and cherries. Easy to taste that this is from the same brewery as Duchesse de bourgogne. Great!
