If you expect something like Rodenbach Grand Cru, you'll be dissapointed with this one. It's very sweet and not sour at all. The sourness is very characteristic for the red ales of Flandern, but this one lacks it. Fruity, sweet and quite refreshing, but not even close to Rodenbach or even Duchesse de Bourgogne.

Vibrant candy sugar and cherries in oak barrels…A corked cider with some cassis…Very thirst-quenching for the style…

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2002
Deep red brown colour, decent head with nice lace, sort of sherberty cherry nose. Light carbonation on the tongue, soft almost milky texture, little sourness, a bit of sweetness, pretty nice, but i crave more sour.

More ruby red/brown port wine clear colour, a bit darker than the Duchess of Bourgogne. Head was small and mid- tan. Light strength caramel toffee, rum and raisin aromas. When you swirl the glass you get the wood and some light acid fruit There is very little sour aroma apart from a hint of gueuzy old socks. The mouth feel is quite light but smooth. Start is light sour followed by bitter as it hits the back of the mouth and tongue then a soft sweetness sets in fading to a somewhat disappointing bland finish. I prefer red ales with a bit more oomp but it is still quite drinkable.
