COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark ruby red red as wine. The style is also called the Burgundy of Flanders, and is a very typical and common beer in West Flanders
Created by a secret blend of the aged and sour mother beer with fresh brewed sweeter beer, this beer produces a sour-sweet balance, set off by the underlying bitterness of the hops. A discovery! The best in its style! Light in alcohol, exciting complex flavors and tastes come to the forefront.
Although serving cold is recommended, taking time to drink it will release more aromas towards the end of your glass.

Robe brune, belle mousse crmeuse, abondante. Nez plus acidul et balsamique que laged red, le ft est galement plus marqu, la cerise acidule apparat laration. Bouche lattaque qui manque un peu de fracheur et dampleur et qui doit aprs le nez engageant. Une brune assez moyenne.

Marduk (6773) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 19, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear chestnut color. Small size, tan head, stays as a thin layer. Sourish, berries, woody, bit earthy in aroma. Sourish, black currant, twiggy, some leaves in taste. Sour dry woody aftertaste. Crisp mouthfeel. Feels bit dirty, but maybe this is just me. Nice spicy hops in late aftertaste. Quite drinkable.

koshack (1556) - Gdask, POLAND - MAR 8, 2016
Kolor mocnej herbaty, klarowne. Piana bezowa drobnopęcherzykowa, ale pojawiają się większe bąble. W aromacie nuty owocowe i kwaskowe. W smaku kwaskowe, przypomina wiśnie. Lekko cierpki posmak. Ciemne słody, lekka karmelowość. Trochę zaklejające, pozostawia słodkawy posmak.

cervmagpt (722) - PORTUGAL - FEB 22, 2016
Reviews based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 23C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 0717A165. AROMA: moderate low malt toasty aroma with notes of cask, dried grapes, slight vinous and a balanced sweet and slight sour aroma. some caramel starts to show as the beer warms. no hop aroma discernible. APPEARANCE: dark brown color with ruby body against light. medium-large light tanned head, creamy, with good retention. clear. TASTE: similar to aroma with notes of slight sweet malt with a lisght sour background. moderate-low notes of toasty, some caramel, dark raisins. low bitterness but with a sweet-and-sour balance. finishes medium-dry. some cask notes are sensed with a mild vinous character, remembering a bit of oxidation. PALATE: medium low body with moderate carbonation. OVERALL: an oud bruin with notes that are consistent with the style, showcasing malt but balanced. Some notes derived drom aging. Its nice but it would imprive with mode esters.
