"more complex than Duchesse, but less flavorful. What was there was a nice redish-brown ale with a nice dry fruity aroma. more subdued and not AS sour, but quite good. more cherry in the nose and flavor even though it was not as sweet. medium body, and smooth."

skoisirius (1717) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Had back in the BW days. Almost like De Proef’s version of a Flemish Red to an extent. Slightly cherry tart and funked, bit of barnyard back. Yummy.

Bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy/cloudy reddish amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice sweet/sour thing going on, apples, cherries, oak, tannins, acidic, when I say sour I really mean tart, drinkable,decent.

Super clear reddish brown. Nose is very floral (jasmine), wood, sweaty funk. Tart, sour cherry finish, with some light smooth wood. Good with a roast and gravy.

kerenmk (2432) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle sample at a sour tasting at Noam’s office. Thanks DSG. Cloudy brown with bubbles. Vinous, toffee aroma and a delicate sourness and sweetness in the mouth. Medium-bodied, smooth, long and delicate sour finish.

HIGHB4LL (599) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger of khaki head that does not last, amber color, light cloudy, light lacing. Aroma: vinegar, cherry, light molasses,. Palate: light body, average carbonation, dry finish. Taste: sweet fruity tartness to medium bitter. Overall, hoppiness was unique, but a little to sweet for me.

At a tasting, thanks DSG, small stable bubly head, very hazy dark red to light brown colour, aroma of sour malt, caramel and almonds, malty oxidised flavour, with toffee and teriaki, medium sweetness, light sourness, almondy bitterness. Nicely balanced and highly enjoyable.
