Bottle thanks to the bosses, BBD may 2007. Alroudn rating: This is one of the most refreshing new beers iv had in a while, in terms of a beer thats just unique. Its like someones made a flemish sour but with rochefort 6, but perhaps lacking the berry fruits. The acidity however it gets in there, makes it massivly drinkable, theres a cranbery sauce like dry woody punch with the darker malt and candy suagr all blending well to make somethign that i can only relate to the likes of dirty horse(but not as good). Excellent beer, id really really like to try this again. fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2003

Beautiful ruby amber color; generous, creamy head. Malt aroma; caramel; light fruitness (cherry-like). Dry and sour taste, refreshing; malt (and a residual sweetness) with some fruity hint (light cherries...).
I would rather define it as a Flemish Sour Ale.
Recommended by the staff (Shadi) at the Waterhuis, this was a nice brown ale that was hoppier than most. Good choice. BlackHaddock (7515) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
330ml bottle: BBD Jan 18. Poured into a Chimay chalice at home on 18th Mar 17. Deep, ruby red in colour, full and lasting tanned uneven blanket of bubbles for a head. Lovely malty nose and taste with a light bitterness that suits the malty base. Does the bitterness come from hops or from the over roasted/toasted malts? I don’t know, most likely the hop content. Really enjoyed it. Obtained from Mat at Chez Sophie some time ago. Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2005
Deep dark reddish brown coloured with nice head. Fruity and spicy aroma. Soft mouthfeel. Sweet and fruity with spicy notes and some complexity. A very tasty brew.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2010 Bottle, in the shrine-like basement at De Bierloods. Dark and dubbelish with a creamy beige cap receding to a slick. Nose brazen Brett-like edge; Orvalish freshness peppered with pollen and floral hops. Getting rose, lily, lavender, farmyard. Trappist-like nuts and choc. Big yeast presence, blanket of horse. Chocolate, nuts, fresh bread. Slick dark Trappist character (Westmalle Dubbel?) with spontaneous touches. Got to get hold of another bottle of this.

Recurring Christmas spices around scurring berries and roastiness...Chocolatey virility overseeing candi sugar and alcoholic puerility...A very satisfying interpretation of the Belgian rich and spicy theme... KimJohansen (10510) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2007
[At Chez Moeder Lambic] Dark red with medium beige head. Sweet and spicy aroma. Taste is vinous and complex. Very good. Bov (13004) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 28, 2002

A Mes rate:
Wonderful deep ruby red amber with a decent chunky head. Lots of malt and caramel/toffee with a kriekishness about it. Dry and slightly sour finish. Reminds me faintly of a Vichtenaar or something similar. Jolly tasty.
