travita (4946) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle. The look is a beige colored head, brownish red in color, and cleanish. The smell is sweet, tart, wood, candy, toffee, and fruit. The taste is too sweet, very sugary, fruit, and eh.

Brown in color with a decent beige head. Aroma is of funk, brown sugar, cranberry, raspberry, and walnuts. Taste is of sugar cane, candy raisins, light tartness, and a little bit of funk, but very sweet.

KeefOz (1727) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2013
At Belgian Beer Cafe, Brisbane; 330ml bottle. Poured a dark amber-brown with a red ruby tint. Poured with about 5mm of light beige head that diminished quickly then laced poorly. No visible carbonation. Aroma like berry flavoured soft drink/cordial plus a hint of vinegar and a trace of malt - overall a very sweet nose. Taste similar to aroma with initally berry flavoured soft drink followed by a vinegar under-tone and quickly by an after-taste of sweet fruit. Light body. A smooth velvet-like mouthfeel. Smooth, sweet, quite light easy to drink beer. Overall a sweet beer but different and drinkable.

MBrienzo (3) - Petrpolis, BRAZIL - MAY 3, 2013 does not count
This is an amazing experience of a dark brown beer, in briefly: at the beginning a clear citric/fruity taste that is replaced by a soft sourness sensation at the end.

Peppar reagerar man ju på direkt i doften. Lite div frukter. Inte söt direkt men drar åt de hållet. Hade även förväntat mig högre syra. Helt ok. På delirium

33cL bottle poured into a small Duvel glass. Bottled on 3/10/10, 3 years old. Did not intended on an old bottles, this is what is at the store and it only got here within the past year. I never bought it because I thought this was the regular Bourgogne des Flandres but apparently this is different.

Pours with a small head and a dark dark ruby red color, almost brown. Aroma has a strong lactic acid sourness (tangy sour cherry), very musky as well. Then comes a pretty strong and sweet barrel character (vanilla, light caramel). There may be a little faint cardboard sneaking in... maybe not. Aroma bottom line: tangy-lactic-musky barrel sweetness. Flavor is lighter than the aroma suggests. Partially do to a nice effervescent carbonation and a medium-light body. The flavors coalesce nicely on the palate. A reduced oak sweetness that is followed by a brighter, crisper lactic sourness. All of that evaporates off the palate nicely. The nose is a bit much but the flavor follows up nicely. I like this style, particular the more traditional slightly sweet, just lactic and light. I can understand why this might not be what others enjoy.

Pours a dark red cola color with a small but strong khaki head. Aroma is sweet, musky cherry which is slightly syrupy and artificial. Taste us much weaker on the cherry with light fruity sweetness. Finishes a bit mineral which takes away from the traditional slightly sour Flanders aspect. Its still easy drinking and generally light, a beginners beer for this style.
25cL bottle from Beer Mania, BB 30/05/09, hotel room plastic cup on 5/16/09.

jookos (6095) - FINLAND - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown, murky. Nose is dry brown malty, a bit of vinous tones, a bit raisin-rhummy, raw chocolate. Some cinnamon, darker spices. Body is medium, refreshing actually. Dark dry malty flavours. Dry, cleansing. Not a sweet malty bruin.

This one poured a ruby red color with an off white head. Aroma was straight apple cider vinegar and light vomit notes. Flavor was sugar and vinager and vomit just bad bad stuff.

Sample @ Timmermans during TdG 13. The pours red with a tiny white head. Spicy nose, a bit of cinnamon. Sweet cherry and a bit of umami. The taste is overly sweet and syrupy. Sugary cherry juice and toffee. Only a hint of sourness on the finish. Pretty boring stuff. Not one Id return to.
