maslupulos (39) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2013
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. Its OK to be subtle!

Brick-red/brown color. Minor head. Thick and very opaque. Dark, sugary balsamic vinegar sourness. Lots of deep cherry and brown sugar. Flavor is more sour/sugary business, with a finish of dark cherry. Slick and slippery on the palate. Surprising that its only 5.2% considering how flavor-packed it is. Its a very very good beer, sour and just booming with sugary-sour flavors.

Clear, red beer with no head. Nice aroma, quit sweet, noticable acetic acid, funky. Really good taste, sour, slightly sweet, balanced and complex. Average cabonation. Typical flanders red ale.

A standard for fans of the style and a great intro for those that arent. Not as good as the Grand Cru but then basically nothing is. Thick brown rubies dissipate into light cherry vinegar and sour Belgian soil. Nifty.

pjotrapostou (84) - POLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Piana niezbyt gęsta, szybko opada. W zapachu niezbyt wiele się dzieje, jest taki owocowo-octowy, trochę wiśni. W smaku jest podobnie, ale trochę więcej: przyjemna i dość delikatna owocowa kwaśność, finisz lekko słodowy, niezbyt długi, goryczki praktycznie nie ma, wysycenie średnie w stronę małego. Generalnie jest to bardzo lekkie i orzeźwiające, łatwe w odbiorze piwo "na co dzień".

CyborgX (90) - THAILAND - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle - aroma is almost undetectable, perhaps just a slight hint of sour. Pous a clear dark ruddy colour. Tastes sour but uninspiring. This is the cheaper younger brother of GrandCru Rodenbach. Don't waste your hard earnt money on it, get the GrandCru, the real deal, or go one step further and get a bottle the Duchesse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Johnstledger8 (1053) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 23, 2017
Draught. Pours a dark opaque reddish brown with a lasting thin light beige head. Aroma is of cherries, cranberry, nuts, caramel. Taste is of toffee, cherry, berries, dried fruit, slightly bitter finish. Oily mouthfeel, soft to medium carbonation.

Godfather50 (228) - SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2017
Rorys Birthday bottles, pours red clear with a little head. Explosive taste which you could dip your chips in, but refreshingly drinkable. Sour cherries, tart fruit, sweet malt. Different and very nterestiing. A great break in an evenings tasting.

Teran (316) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JAN 21, 2017
Clear red brown, small beige head. Sour caramel. which is so nice and interesting. Sour cherries, red berries, tart fruit. Refreshing and easy drinking. Rare and delilcous.
