tmoreau (4168) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2014
Shared 750 ml. bottle, poured to snifters displaying a dark mahogany color, with a modest layer of off white foam the reduced to a persistent ring, leaving cling spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was tart grape & dark cherry, with barrel & tanniny notes, yeasty brett, and lurking, cognac-like alcohol presence. Medium+ bodied, the taste mimicked the aroma well, retained the yeasty funk, advanced the tartness to controlled sour, and finished pleasantly dry. Very nice!

Sampled at the W&C Clayton. It poured a dark black cherry color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark cherries, some mild funk and dark malts. The taste was of sweet berries, cherry, a little caramel and some funk in the finish. Very nice.

Bottle in Nrrebroparken. Pours a clear brown with a small beige head. Sour with a light sweetness and some tartness. Aromas of sour cherries and some cask wood. Hints of glue. Medium to full bodied. Medium carbonation. Dry and sour finish.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a reddish color with a khaki head. Aroma of green apples, rubber bands, booze. Flavor is gross. Red wine, vinegar, booze, wood, rubber bands, green apple, tons of acid. Booze and acid is how I describe this. Slick mouthfeel. I had a solid 6 oz. pour of this and its almost unfinishable. This is gross. Not a good beer.

mathieuc (3872) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2015
Thanks to nate321 for this bottle! Pours a dark red with a small beige rim on top that leaves somewhat good lacing. Nose is of light acetone, oak, wine, moderate vinegar and light cheese. Taste is of balsamic vinegar like it should but also incredibly oaky. Grapes, cherries and light spirits (must be the cognac) make up the rest of the flavors. Both body and carbonation were medium and acidity level is moderate and refreshing. Easy drinking enough. Overall a good but not great Flanders-style ale.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle at home with friends and family. Pour is deep brown with a light red tint and small tan head that quickly dissipated. Red wine vinegar, some spice, cinnamon, brown sugar, caramelly, green apples and pears in the aroma. Taste is red wine, some caramel, light salt, somewhat acidic, dark fruits, tangy, and oaky with a semi sour finish. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation.

Huhzubendah (3690) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle gifted by daknole. Thank you, my friend, for the great hang, conversation, and delicious beers. The beer is a dark chestnut hue with tinges of russet and crimson, sporting a thin, beige collar. The aroma brings brettanomyces, funk, cherry, oak, a touch of spice. Similar flavor, with additional notes of balsamic vinegar, black currant, red wine, port. Subtle notes of nuts, earth. Light to medium bodied with moderate acidity. Similar in some regards to an oud bruin. A delicious beer. Ill be sipping on this for the next couple hours. Cheers Dak!

Bottle pour at the Brouwers event. Pours cola like brown with a very nice sour front aroma. So many sour flavors here. Cherry, grape, and a little apple. This is an incredible beer. Great stuff.

Bottle share, again thanks to Matt. Murky brown color with a sandy head. Nose is fruity and sour, brett, and oak. A deep underlying wave of sweetness accented nicely by the sour notes. Oak, brett, vanilla, and something fruity like pie cherries. Soft. Very nice.
