Red to brown beer with a big and creamy white to beige foam. Nose is elegant malty and earthy with hints of sour fruits and berries. Taste is less full than the Aardmonnik version and the mouth feeling is elegant and refreshing. The taste has hints of old wine, wood, nuts, earth, Porto, dry fruits, horse sweat and old wood. Taste on tap at Zythos 2007. Very similar with the Aardmonnik version but more refined and a bit less powerful. A unique beer !

White label bottle: 18/02/2016. Mahogany Red color with a small beige head that faints quickly but it’s a natural cause of all the barrel aging in this beer. Complex aromas of red wine, cherries, dark fruits and some vinegar. Medium carbonation, and tart acidity in the mouthfeel.Very complex in taste but artistically balanced. You can definitely see some Pannepot Reserva in it (never had the Earthmonk). A very unique beer that is way ahead of the typical Flemish Sour genre for sure.World Class for me.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 On draught @ Struise farm. Chesnut coloured beer with great beige creamy head. Aroma is malty and slight sharp with hints of earth, candi, dead leafs and old port wine. The smell is simply magificent. Taste is very Trappist like, it is soft, velvety and complex. Hints of sweet chesnuts, tart red fruits, caramel, bread, malts, some vinous accents and touches of port. Afthertaste is rich, very complex yet refreshing at the same time. Thanks Urbain for this fine treat. I drank a 75cl bottle today that I’ve got from Urbain the other day and this beer is evolving greatly!

Tasted at the Struise Farm next to Aardmonnik. Aardnon was On tap. Lighter in color than Aardmonnik and this one did had the most beautiful foam.Aroma is Soft and less vinegar like than its brother. Nice woodyness, very good balance and highly drinkable. Taste is malty, winelike, Pannepot reserva caracter, bready and smooth peppercake. Great balans and clear afthertaste.

Piana niska, drobna, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa ciemno rubinowa, nieprzejrzysta. Aromat intensywny i złożony - jest czerwone wino, jest porto, jest malaga, są wiśnie w czekoladzie, karmel, suszone owoce, ciemne winogrona, w tle wanilia i marcepan... Klasa! W smaku zarówno winna kwaśność jak i quadruplowa słodycz, kandyzowane owoce mieszają się z porzeczkami, taniny i wanilia z cierpkością pestek, karmel przenika z taninami i tytoniem... Do tego trunek jest aksamitny, oleisty, wyklejający, nisko wysycony. Delikatny alkohol w likierowo winnej postaci domyka całość.
Taki blend to faktycznie mistrzostwo świata - zaspokoi zarówno quado headów jak i sour headów!

Tot timpul e fain când dai de o bere care e diferită de orice altceva ai băut până atunci. Aroma e incredibilă: cacao, lichior, stejar, bourbon, cireșe, vin roșu, oțet de mere. Gustul e subtil dar plin în același timp, doar o idee acrișor. Bourbon în butoi, cireșe, ciocolată neagră, sâmburi de cireșe. Uleioasă, potentă. Amăreală puțină pe final. De plm.

Many thanks for this Sour Red Brown Ale to tderoeck. Vintage 2009. I'm, lovin it. Zapach wina jakosciowego, drewno, wilgotne beczki i ziemistosc starej piwnicy. Brazowa ciemna barwa, prawie bez piany. Po przechyleniu kieliszka to piwo placze, Tworzy te same oleiste splywajace lzy na szkle. Doskonale winne, ocet winny, mnostwo mnostwo ciemnych i dzikich owocow, wisnie, porzeczki, jagody i maliny, a przede wszystklim ta fantastyczna cierpkosc zurawiny. Nawet drylowane sliwki mi sie kojarzyly. Fantastycznie winne i owocowe. Doskonale kwaskowe i wytrawne piwo, alkohol nieco wyczuwalny, slodycz niewielka a jak sie pojawia to automatycznie skontrowana dzikoscia i kwasowoscia. A ilez tu tanin jak w najlepszym Burgundzkim winie. Jedno z nielicznych piw Struise ktore jest az tak malo slodowe. Dletaego jest: One of The Best.
