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.

bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Draught. brown clear with good lace. Aroma is thin but clean earth grass, light spice. Flavor is well balanced, mildly astringent, moderately sour, a little bit of raisin, and funky. Very clean and cooling palate. Easy drinker and very well put together. Probably great for food.

darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Pours a murky red with a foamy thick off white head. Nose is slight sour cherry and some dense woodiness with some old sock and bretty nose. Flavor is sour and funky up front finishes with a hint of cherry and a unpleasant metallic taste. Its light but its still detracting. Could have been great but as it was, merely adequate.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours a dark ruby red with a small head but very lacy. Smells very very fruity. Sour apple with an underlying sweetness. A bit of malt. Taste is appley and yeasty but a bit watery. Better as it warms. Gets more sour and a bit maltier. Still tastes a bit like watered down Goudenband. Quite thin body and not much aftertaste. This is OK but could be a bit more flavorful.

shorlin (721) - St. Johns, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAR 31, 2003
Very small fizzy head, with little lacing. Colour is a medium ro dark red. Aroma dominated by fruit: prune, date and cherry. Also some red wine in there, Kind of sourish, but not too much. Nice and easy going beer. Body is kind of light and kind of dry.

[bottle] Murky brown in color, with a solid tan head. Funky aroma--woody malt and dark fruit, slight vinegar. Mild sour character in the flavor, with dominating vanilla and oak. Medium bodied. Quite drinkable.

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2005
Very dark, deep red with a short-lived pale beige head. Cherry, cobwebs and sawdust in the nose. The sourness is tempered by the aging, obviously, making it a very mild drink. After trying Rodenbach, this is a little dull on the palate, but still enjoyable.
