About time to rate this classic Belgian. Pours a hazy ruby-copper with a finger of foam that quickly dissipates. Funky, sweet estery smell with underlying fruit notes. Grainy malts and candy sugar mix with tart cherries. Smooth and very drinkable, much better than many overwhelming American sours that are lip-puckering bitter and taste of vinegar. It’s OK to be subtle!

250ml bottle [as Rodenbach Classic]. Clear, chestnut colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Tart-ish spicy aroma with a vinous touch, hints of vinegar, notes of blue grapes, fig, morello, hints of juniper berry, laurel, blackcurrant. Taste is sweet-and-sour, juicy, vinous, minimally sugary, tangy, notes of morello, blue grapes, dark berries, sweet-ish red berries, raspberry vinegar; lasting finish, minimally sticky palate.

Not as complex as the Grand Cru version. But a very refreshing sour all the same. I will have to try them side-by-side next time. I've had this a number of times now. And OK but not great sour ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

puren (1185) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 20, 2017
PREZENTACJA: pod światło klarowne, kasztanowe, piana skąpa, sycząca, od razu opada do obrączki ;
AROMAT: kwaśne nuty mlekowe i wytrawne, leżakowane w drewnie czerwone wino ;
ODCZUCIE: ciało średnie, wysoko nasycone, nieprzyjemnie szczypie w czubek języka;
SMAK: lekko słodkie owocowe wino z wyraźnym klepkowym akcentem, kwaskowy posmak ;
OGÓLNIE: niezbyt ciekawe, choć złe nie jest.

DavidSvinth (155) - DENMARK - SEP 7, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2017 Mørk rødbrun farve. Dufter af ribs. Smagen er sur og overraskende sød. Mangler det krydrede element, som mange red sours har.

thejackpacker (529) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2017
Bottle from beer shop in Mennen. A very refreshing, tasty sour beer. Not entirely sure how to describe it as it brings together some great feelings of many styles: ESB, lambic, Trappist and puts them in one very tasty but not remarkable beer (which is good as I could drink this on the regular if i could). Sludgy brown colour which appears more deep red up to the light. Basement aroma. Lovely sweet & sour taste, deep with oak with an oily finish. Yummy.

MasDen (448) - Mogilev, BELARUS - AUG 25, 2017
Cherry stone, plum in the fragrance. Color from red to brown with a weak white foam. Same as the fragrance. Dry fruit berry. Light body, small carbonation.

Sirop de sucre pur, à conseiller en cas d’hypoglycémie, arrière goût de couenne de jambon fumé, l’étiquette laisse transparaitre la détresse des commerciaux de cette brasserie... encore une bière qui fait de la Belgique un pays plat...
