Kicsi, gyorsan eltűnő hab, sttbarna szn. Savanyks, vrsboros illat. Savanyks, boros zvilg, a httrben jelzs rtkű hords s srs aromk. Knnyed, mr-mr testestlen, de nem vizes, erős sznsavtartalm, szinte egyltaln nem keserű. Kellemes, knnyed, frisstő sr, de egy kis test sokat lendtene rajta.

Bulk_Carrier (4534) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - NOV 12, 2016
This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a dark rugged brown color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated immediately. Some messy lacing. The aroma starts with some apple cider vinegar, lean sour to sweet with an embracing caramel loved malt. Some green apple fresh tartness flows over the soured malts. The flavor blends the sour to the sweet. Green apple sticky aftertaste leading on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat between a light and a medium on the body. Semi-sessionable sort of mild sour and then sweet sort of funky and then oatiness. Overall, this is a good Flanders Red ale that I could have again, preferably in warmer weather.

janubio (761) - SPAIN - OCT 25, 2016
Pours an opaque red colour, with a medium head that fades soon, leaving a lace that draws figures on the glass. Aroma of grapes, sherry wine, cherries, vinegar. Medium body, with a creamy palate and an average carbonation. Taste is sour, grapes, cherries, wood, sherrie wine, vanilla.
