A typical Flemish beer with a pleasant wine-like taste and a rich past. This dark brown beer, which is matured in oak casks, has a slightly acid aftertaste.

Clear dark red-brown beer, sourish fruity acidic taste. Nothing spectacular.

Zilverenmaan (336) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2018
Poors bordeaux-brown with - for a flemish red - a decent head. Aroma sweetish, somewhat sugary even, very fruity ( raspberry?) light vanilla, only sligtly sour. Taste again very fruity: raspberries, strawberrie, light vanilla, sugary again. Rather good: well balanced, indeed somewhat wine-like but I would probably have preferred it less sweet and more acidic. Average flemish red: not my favourite but definately not the worst either.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2018 Probada de botella en el Beer Attack de Villarreal. Sour belga dulce madurada en barricas de roble, con aroma a malta y caramelo, de gusto amaderado, con toques de uva, cereza y ligera acidez final, muy equilibrada y con buena copa blanco marfil. Así me quiero imaginar la cerveza hace unos cuantos siglos.

Pours with an auburn color from the paper wrapped bottle. The head fizzed and faded so quickly that I forgot the color. Aroma is fruity with a light hint of oak. Primarily plums and red currant. Taste is a mildly sweet to sour combination with the sour taking over at the finish. Body is light with a watery texture. Very simple and nothing special but still refreshing.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2018 (robe lave noire, vineuse peu aigre, bulles mourantes, trop minérale-sèche et sévère-plate : déçu)

stouby (4871) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2018
Bottle @ No5, DØE tasting. Clear dark brown with a thin off white head. Aroma light to medium fruity, light spicy and sour. Flavor very tart (barrel), light fruit, vinegar is the main impression, ending dry. Light body, watery, medium carbonated.

jsporrer (1168) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2018
Pours a dark caramel iced tea brown with a thin off white ring. Very lightly tart aroma. Taste is very thin and light with just a slight tartness. Feels watered down and weak. Flavors are not very prominent. Not bad but just not very good.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5568) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 10, 2017
Bottle from Rakuten. Clear ruby brown with a cherry cough syrup flavor and malty caramel. Soft carbonation. Ok but too simple and sweet... macro oud bruin seeming?

andrepintado (3790) - Porto, PORTUGAL - OCT 29, 2017
37.5cl bottle. Dark red brown. Thin to medium beige head. Medium sourness, light sweetness and bitterness. Medium body. Aroma and flavour is cherries, wood, chocolate, balsamic vinegar.

Zlotta (4242) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2017
0.375 l bottle from 'Prik & Tik' (Tongeren), best before September 2018. Clear, very dark ruby with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, off-white head. Sweetish, slightly sourish, quite fruity and a bit woody aroma of caramel, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, cherries and some oak. Slightly sweet, moderately sour, fruity and a bit woody taste of caramel, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, cherries and oak, followed by a medium long, moderately tart, woody-dry, slightly vinous and a bit musty finish. Medium body, slightly astringent and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite nice, well-balanced but not overly complex.

Met aangename wijnsmaak, gerijpt op eiken vaten, met licht zure achtergrond, hierop is kriek gebaseerd. Foto's: http://www.beersfrombelgium.eu/nl/Bacchus-b-1020.h
