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.

Concealer (1203) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2013
#200 - Woo! Dark reddish brown pour with a tan frothy head. Smells of sour dark fruits, cherries, and wood. Taste is not really sweet, not really sour but more mild than anything. There are some dark fruit flavors, some oak not much else.

Laskicks (8) - FINLAND - OCT 14, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2016 I liked this the first time, but really fell in love the second time. I found notes of red wine and cherry from the background, and refreshing cava in the aftertaste. Really good brown trappist.
