KoNrRiI (1319) - rhus, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
0.33 tap. A clear, dark scarlet color with a small, white head leaving some basic lacing. Aroma is sweet and sour: citruses, yeasts, red berries, and perhaps a touch of caramel. The taste is also citric, sour, yeasty - rather weird all things considered. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. The finish is long and also citric - who would have thought. Overall not a bad beer, its unusual but very fruity and refreshing.

PapaVillum (891) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2016
Rød/brun ufiltreret Sour Red/Brown med mindre offwhite skumtop på 1/2 cm. Svinder til kant og overflade. Sød-/syrlig aroma af kirsebær, gær og citron. Smagen er let syrlig, mere sødlig og let bitter. Men det er øllets halvtynde krop, der gør et lidet flatterende indtryk. Forholdsvis fint balanceret smag med frugtnoter og en let hvede-ditto. Perlende mundfølelse qua en forholdsvis høj karbonering. Let olieret konsistens og en meget let krop. Overall: Hæderlig frugtagtig og frisk smagelig, men for let i udtrykket og i fylden. 33 cl, flaske, 5.0 % ABV, BB: 17/03/17, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

goofy34 (77) - Saint jean de vedas, FRANCE - JUN 9, 2016
Arme fruit, agrablement sucr avec un petit got de cerise, pas franchement amer pourrir acidit, carbonisation agrable et pour finir un surprenante couleur Marron rouge

dnicolaescu (2269) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 7, 2016
BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear red-brown, decent beige head. The aroma has red dry berry sweetness and bitter herbs - kind of like a cough syrup. Some metallic notes and very faint winy acidity. The taste is similar, with an acidity resembling carbonated drinks more than Flanders Reds. Not bad, but far from the best.

susonagger (200) - spain, - JUN 5, 2016
NOTA DE CATA: - Color: Bourgogne Des Flandres presenta un color oscuro. - Olor: Aromas de pimienta. - Sabor: Abunda en cualidades amargas desde su introduccin en boca, pero tambin en su expansin directa a todo el paladar. Su severo amargor engaa un poco la realidad de su volumen alcohlico, principalmente en el retrogusto. Su conclusin revela una fuerte acritud, seca y breve.

Charles_Quint (1) - - MAY 24, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 75cl bottle. Light head, typical for lambic, taste lightly acid, fruity and malty at the end. Nice brown reddish brown color. Pleasant

blackisle (2257) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Poured into a teku glass. Clear deep ruby brown, small stable frothy beige head, mostly diminishing, fair lacing; sweet fruity nose, cherries, raspberries, caramel, wood (much more complex than expected); taste light heavy sweet and light to medium sour, candy sugar, cherries, bit woody, light spicy notes; becomes more sour in the middle part leading to a fruity sweetsour finish, woody undertone; medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation; better than expected (being a Martins beer), perhaps bit too sweet but enough sourness for the balance.

fenouil (18) - courbevoie, FRANCE - APR 30, 2016
Produite Bruges grce une technique de brassage ancienne consistant mlanger des lambics et des brunes de haute fermentation. En bouche parfums de cerise et de framboise associant avec talent lamertume et le sucr. Intressante. Une bonne surprise.

MartyW (115) - DENMARK - APR 24, 2016
Brown/red color with quickly falling beige foam. Sweet aroma with hints of caramel, malt, berries and wine-sourness. Taste is surprisingly pleasant with a good sweetness and a good amount of malt compared to other beers in the category. Slightly sour but overall more on the sweeter side with notes of berries and caramel. Reminds me a bit of a russian softdrink called квас (Kvass). Overall this was better than I had imagined and actually a beer I would buy again to enjoy with some friends. Thumbs up!
