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.

Holy god, Im impressed. Im really surprised with its low score after sitting down and enjoying this. Wonderfully sessionable, slightly sour brew, that impressed me most with its creamy, almost frothy, and oily mouthfeel. If you want to have a friend step into the sour end of the pool slowly, Id say this is a great way to do it.

Dark ruby red, beige head. Aroma is dark malts, dark fruits, faint vinegar/salad dressing, sour fruits. Medium body, light and crispy. Taste is nice, roastiness combines well with sourness and sweetness. Not bad.

Barwa brązowa, piana mała. W aromacie już czuć kwasowość, jest troche winne. Delikatnie kwaśne.

330 ml bottle. Clear dark ruby pour with 1 finger off-white porous head. Stable. Okay lacing. Low to moderate carbonation. Wine vinegar, funk and oak barrel on nose. Tart wood, light to medium wine vinegar sourness, funk, barrel. Not a multi-dimentional flanders sour but is seems this is what it should really be. I like the balance between sour and wood composition. Enjoyable.

Sour Flemish mud that would be nicer if it were a little bit older and more balanced. Fresh ale overwhelms tart redness with sweet hazelnut washings in a mouthful that will appeal to broad audiences but not necessarily fulfil fans of the style.

datrael (445) - Krakw, POLAND - MAY 17, 2017
W aromacie owocowo - wiśnie, czereśnie, nuty winne, dzikie. W wyglądzie ciemna czerwień z solidną brązową pianą zdobiącą szkło. W smaku lekko kwaśne, wytrawne, wiśniowe, czereśniowe, pestkowe, subtelne nuty czekoladowe. Goryczki brak, pijalne, stonowane, ułożone, eleganckie. Oglnie przyjemny, delikatny kwas, bardzo solidny, smaczny.

Piwo brązowe, klarowne. Piana wysoka, kremowa, trwała. Ładnie lepi szkło. W aromacie i w smaku delikatna słodycz i kwasowość - owoce leśne. Niestety aromat bardzo słaby (intensywność). Trochę przypomina wino. Wysycenie niskie. Bardzo fajny, delikatny sour.

Piwo barwy brunatnej, klarowne. Piana średnio obfita, lecz ładnie zdobi szkło. W aromacie lekko winna kwaśność, czarne owoce (porzeczka?). W smaku przede wszystkim kwaśno, poza tym dosyć pusto.

It has strong and unpleasant taste. Beer is pretty strong but not too much. I usually like dark beer but that one not at all. But still I was able to finish it.
