Maybe it’s because I haven’t been able to get any Flemish Sour Ale here in years, but jeez - I love this brew.
Beautiful deep red with a moth watering fruity sour aroma. taste is aggressively sour with a nice lingering tang that doesn’t overpower.
Fantastic! AlexT (11) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
This was an interesting experience since I didn’t know anything about the Flemish sour ale. Most likely an acquired taste. Canmoore (483) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours a deep raisin colour, with minimal head. The aroma notes include fig, sour apple, toasty malts, and raisins. The tasting notes include sweet fruity sour, blended with a complex mix of fig, toasty malts, and has almost a Sherry character to it. Excellent! My favorite Lambic to date! illidurit (2338) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 23, 2013
One of the all-time classic Flanders reds. So many of them taste like saccharine fermented cola, but Jacobins is nuanced, tart, authentically fruity with cherry pits, and woody without being tannic. herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle. Dark amber, creamy tan head. High delicate carbonation. Aroma of dark fruit, cherry, jam, yeast, hints of oak and lilac. Medium sticky. Fruit sourness and slightly herbal. Very delicate Brett character without overpowering. A little cloying on the finish. Probably should have let this sit. Still, very nice.

This was my favorite beer of the 8 I tried at Prohibition Taproom’s Sour Event during Philly Beer Week. This was an awesome sour! OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 20, 2013
11.2oz served in a snifter. Lots of speckled lacing.
A - Pours a reddish brown with a thin cap of tan bubbles.
S - Very acetic sour aroma, old wet basement wood, good amount of funk, old bruised fruit, tart raspberries, some sweetness as well.
T - Slap your Grandma sour! There’s a brief second of sweet malt upfront but then the lacto sour slowly builds reaching it’s toe curling climax at the very end. Lots of tart and fermented fruit going on. Highly acetic but a great blend of light brown sugar sweetness. Raspberries are the most notable fruit. Salty wood and balsamic hit right at the finish.
M - Light bodied, crisp sour finish.
Wow this was lip smacking sour with just the right amount of sweetness. More funky brett presence than I expected. My favorite Flanders Red.

2013/06/20 - Pours a clear, deep red mahogany color with a foamy off white head. Aroma is vinegar, cherries, barnyard and smoked wood. Taste is very subdued compared to aroma. Tart cherries and lemon with a slight barnyard aftertaste. Oily body with low to medium carbonation and a puckering finish. Not my style, but a surprisingly smooth sour ale.

Muchas Gracias Mr. Senn! Une bouteille de 33 cl à consommer de préférence avant le 6/02/15. Une belle robe rouge qui scintille et qui montre un col de mousse bien accroché. Un nez très alléchant de cerises aigres, de transpiration boisée et de notes maltées justement douces. Sur les papilles, une ascension fortifiée du chêne et des notes fruitées aigres. Des cerises et des framboises touchées par des notes balsamiques. Des malts nécessaires qui ne prennent jamais trop de place. En bouche, un corps bien serré, un pétillement vif et une texture huileuse. Une finale remplie par des notes aigres-douces qui s’étirent en longueur et, dans une moindre mesure, en intensité. Vivement une autre bouteille de ce nectar si facilement aimable. buffalojump (15) - toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2013
wonderful. It is perfect to me. Not too sour, cherries, slightly creamy. Leaves a slight tart on the palate
I love this one and my previous favorite was the Panil sour. This one is mellower and finishes very clean. I would drink 20 of these if I could. I’ll buy this little beer every chance I can get. Cherry and a smooth light lemon hop that stays behind the cherry. Slightly sweet even.
So good you want to down it but so good you have to stop and savour and roll it on your tongue for a while.
