Hanuta06 (495) - Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2018 Serving: from bottle--purchased at Total Wine & More. Aroma: light apple, cherry and tobacco aroma. Appearance: average-sized, frothy, light-brown, initial head with fair lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-amber/orange body. Taste: moderately sour apple initial flavor and moderately sour, leathery finish with average duration. Palate: light body with syrupy texture and fizzy carbonation. Overall: excellent. Complex flavor. Thirst-quenching. I’d happily drink this again.

Flaska från SB? Vintage 2010. Doft och smak av fat, russin, röd vinäger, hallon, körsbär, tanniner, körsbärssylt, ek. Fint utjämnad. Sött och bärigt. Väldigt lättdrucket!

afn (15) - New York, USA - NOV 17, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 Enjoyed this in the past as Strubbe's Grand Cru Flemish Red Ale. Wonder if they changed the recipe, really enjoyed this previously. Significantly sweet - not as much as Duchesse or Rodenbach, but not a "sour" sour if you know what I mean. Well-balanced, finishes clean, might be good with sausages or other fatty foods but doesn't work as a self-drinker for me.

BelgiskOlklub (1089) - Viby J, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2017
Red brown clear body and a small diminishing off-white head. Aroma of sweet cherries, brown sugar, oak and vanilla. The taste has medium sweetness and medium sourness. Sweet rather than sour finish.

A solid Flanders red. Sweeter than the average. Nice amount of cherry, earthy qualities and hints of vinegary sourness.

Draught @ Patricks Pub og Restaurant, Kristiansand
Pours hazy brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, funk, tart, caramel and hint of brown sugar. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium sour with a long funky, tart, caramel and fruity finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft

Bottle from Carrefour City Supermarket, Brussels, Belgium. Bright amber with a thin white head. It has a sour red fruity, spicy flavour with cherries, earthy notes and oak on the finish. Very good.
