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.

Hmm different but good. I am curious to try other beers from this brewer. Tastes more like a sour.

A very well balanced sour, complex and fruity, that gets better as it warms. This beer pours dark amber with little foam. The aroma is warm malt, apples, bread, candied fruit... a lot of winter kitchen notes on the nose. I didnt like the flavor quite as much as the aroma, but it isnt like I had to fight to finish the bottle. This beer slips the mild sourness in at the front, with some caramel and fruit mid-tongue, and finishes with some malt punch. I enjoyed this and wouldnt mind another glass.

wozap (846) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - MAR 23, 2017
Pite na koniec terminu 22.02.2017 Brązowe, zgaszone, piana średnia rwnomierna, pracuje z szkle i lekko je zdobi. Aromaty winne, owocowe, lekki nuty octowe. Musujące w ustach, wytrawne z wyraźnym akcentem beczki, ale też owocowe (nuty skrek winogron), taniczny finisz.

McSherman (629) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2017
Dunkelbraun leicht rtlich mit beigem Schaum. Geruch leicht suerlich und holzig. Die moderate Sure ist gut mit der malzigen Se ausbalanciert. Leicht fruchtige und wrzige Aromen, aber recht geradlinig. Sicherlich ein erfrischendes Sommerbier.

jsporrer (882) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Pours a semi clear dark burgundy brown with a tan head of foam. Medium carbonation with some lacing. Crisp, tart, fruity aroma. Crisp tingly full mouth feel. Light tart and sour but not overpowering. Fairly thin body with a clean finish. Flavor falls a little flat and dry and doesnt linger much in the aftertaste. Fairly refreshing and enjoyable but not great.

Inoven (525) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2016
Flesje gedeeld door Joep. Roodbruin helder bier met redelijk schuim. Aroma is iets zuur en kruidig. Smaak is zurig als een geuze. De smaak blijft heel even op de tong maar ebt redelijk snel weg.

Aroma faint, traces of vanilla. Taste only mildly acidic with a distinct candi sugar overtone. A bit watery towards the end.
