Bottle: Filtered.
A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

Bottle - Aroma is sour, and hints of both ale and wine. Taste follows the aroma closely, and if blind tasting without carbonation, one could be fooled into believing its a a weird funky wine. With carbonation and an almost undetectable bitter finish it reveals itself as a beer. Compliments a dark sweet imperial stout nicely ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska frn SB. Tippar p ngot r gammal. Mrk, rdbrun, nstan ogenomtrnglig med fingerhgt beiget skum. Stsyrlig doft av rdvinsvinger, brunt socker, kola, citron, ekfat, ltt touch av vanilj. Medelstor kropp. Syrlighet med lite vingertoner som balanseras upp nstan lite vl mycket av sockerstma, tillsammans med lite rostade toner, kola och fudge. Lite vl sockerstt. En lttdrucken rd suris, men saknar elegans och udd.

Alebarasi (59) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - JAN 27, 2017
Brown to dark amber color with white head. Sour and acidic aroma of balsamic vinegar, overfermented yeast, prunes, oak ,cherry. Sweet and sour taste with aromas of cherries, grapes, prunes, plums, oak, ripe apples and some raisins. Extremely dry finish. Interesting taste and one easy-to-drink Belgian brew definitely, but the smell kind of deters it from tasting it.

Rdbrunt med lavt skum som holder hele veien. Sure kirsebr, vanilje og hint av eik i duften. Mye det samme i smaken sammen med en st brekraftig avslutning.

Deep brown, low creamy head. Aroma wine cork, balsamico vinegar. Palate medium, low carbonation. Taste sour, wild cherries, a bit of tannins. Not very dry finish. Drinkable, nice beer.

SVD (1777) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2017
Sample. Brown beer medium head. Aroma is sour, fruit, caramel, wood and stale. Taste is the same and very sour in the beginning after that it gets sweeter. Not for me.

Bottle at home during a snow storm. Youve got to respect tradition. This is probably pretty close to the archetypal Flanders Red, and it is a great representation of the style. Theres some cider-y sour aroma, lots of sweet fruit flavor, some acidic bite, and a bit of leather and oak from the foeders. I remember being blown away by this the first time I tried it, but this time I was mainly struck by how sweet it was -- theres a lot of sugary sweetness thats balancing out the moderate sour bite.

Brunatne z przeciętną pianą. W aromacie przede wszystkim owoce, trochę kwaśności, lekkie nuty dzikie. W smaku na początku jest kwaśne, trochę ściągające, mocno owocowe, na finiszu słodkie, delikatnie waniliowe, cudownie to ze sobą gra. Wysycenie dosyć wysokie, średnia pełnia.

Its a bit sweet for me, but otherwise this is a top notch beer, which is no surprise considering the legacy.
