Too many sour ales are one dimensional and lacking in depth. Not so with this one. There was a sweet and savory presence that supported and was uplifting to the tart and sour notes. One of the best I have had in this style. +++ Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy dark brown color with a medium sized fluffy orange-tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sour and tart with notes of cherry, oak, plum and faint savory spices and bread. The flavor had an initial burst of tar and sour citric acid and lactic acid followed by oak, honey,sourdough bread and followed again by more lactic and citric acid. The flavor blend and support each other as they wash over in waves and each sip begins the whole cycle over again. The finish was long, tart and sour yet remained rich and vibrantly malty. Fairly full bodied. Amazing. seuinoz (260) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Nice aroma of cherries, hints of vinegar. Appearance nice dark red color with small to non existent head. Taste. Wow nice sour notes hints of cherries, oak and vinegar. Sits really well on the palate. Overall a very good sour beer from Flanders. austinpowers (2832) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 29, 2005
Utterly delicious. I just love Flemish Sours, and this is nothing but a joy to drink. Not quite as tart as Duchesse de Bourgogne, and not quite as sweet as it, either. Bockor is a milder Flemish with a wonderful aroma. I’d say that overall it is lightly sweet, but the tartness is there, too. Wonderful complexity. Looks just like the picture at the upper left. Wonderful. biokid23 (102) - California, USA - FEB 12, 2014
A delicious sour. Sour cherries predominate. Tart smell. Not the most sour of sours, but the malty bitterness that replaces it is well worth it.

Bottle at beerbistro. Tart smell of musty grapes. Very dark brown with thin white head. Lovely lightly sour taste with some sweetness. Yum. Honestbrewer2 (16) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 23, 2011
I absolutely loved this beer. A beautiful ruby color. An amazing sour cheery aroma. A nice sour cherry taste with hints of cinnamon and apple. The medium body and malt is in amazing balance with the sourness. This beer goes down amazingly smooth with a sour/sweet aftertaste that is very welcoming. Flanders Red are very difficult beer and I find that the balance is always a little off, but this beer is spot on. poisoneddwarf (2621) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - MAY 7, 2015
11.2 oz bottle. Aroma consists of vinegar, dark fruits (cherry, raspberry seeds), pepper, sweaty gym socks. Pours clear dark brown with amber highlights and a thick, long-lasting beige head. Taste is sour (7/10 on a sour scale), fruity, dry, delicious; has a lingering sweetness. A lot like Duchesse. Seems a little thin, though. This is really hitting the spot right now.

Delicious sour ale. Does not disappoint. Redish brown color and very light head. Not as good as Monk’s Cafe.
