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.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 25, 2009
0.33l Pours a redish brown color with fizzy, bubbleish, vanishing off-white foam. Aroma of basement, earthy yeast, restrained fruity character with slight lactic acid feel. Discreet sourness with some oak in the mouthfeel. Slightly tart unfruity yeast leads to caramel and lactic-sweetness. Thin, watery body pairs with lifeless carbonation. Somwhat unclear, tart finish. Not too inviting, but quite decent though.

BuckeyeBoy (7052) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle Pours out a dark brown with some red highs topped with a small tan head. Aroma is of pitfruit, sweet cherries, and light malt. Taste more of the pitfruit and sweetness. A little bitter on the end. Not much of a sour.

jaghana (5832) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle 33cl. A brown ale with nice brownish head. Smell is typically on oude bruin side with notes of hops. Aroma is more gueuse like, very dry, notes of dark fruits, less interesting than expected. Not bad but with less wood and cherry character than other oude bruin.

craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a thin off white head. Light oak and dark fruit notes. Really lacking the depth desired in a sour ale across the nose. Med body with cherry notes along with figs, oak, vinegar and a vinous quality. Sweet and sour finish with a touch of vanilla.

arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Pours a clear brown color with a tiny white head that fades to nothing and small amount of lacing. Aroma is cherry, vinegar, and a little bit of malt. The aroma is a little weak. The taste is a typical brown ale with some of those familiar sour tastes but its very thin and watery. Its an ok beer but its boring.

teddybeer (3690) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 25, 2012
33cl bottle. Brown colour with a large, frothy and tan head. Aroma is sour, slightly spicy and moderate malty. Flavour has red fruits hints, slightly sweet at the beginning and a final moderate sour and dry; vinous traces on palate, dense. Carbonation is lively. Body is medium.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Carbonated Ale that has a slight reddish tint to the appearance. The flavor has a sour fruitiness but seems to taste somewhat like an RC cola.

ccex (1253) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
33cl bottle pours a reddish dark brown with a frothy beige head and some lacing. Aroma is full of dark fruits (especially cherries with a hint of oak. Body is medium with enough carbonation to keep the moutheel lively. Taste is sour, of course, but not as vinegary as Petrus Aged Pale. Finish is short but has nothing offensive. A passable example of one of my least favorite styles.
