Pours flaming flemish red with a nice head that leaves some nice belgian lace. Aroma is fruity, woody with hints of vinegar. Taste plays on the sweet and sour theme with a balsamic-like character. A real nice flanders red that everyone should enjoy at least once... and then many times after that. I know I did!

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2017 Bottle at home. Pours dark ruby red brown with a creamy off white head. Aroma is sharp & sour, fruity red berries, vinous, apple skins, wood. Taste is soft & sweet at first before the sharpness & balsamic notes comes through. Medium bodied, fine carb, bitter sweet sharp finish. One hell of a beer, not everyone’s cup of tea but I’m a huge fan

Nos wręcz miodowy, usta podobnie przesłodzone, flandersowy ulepek, szkoda. Etykieta gustowna, mała flaszeczka podobnież.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2017 Not for me. Tastes like a mixture of vinegar and sweet cider. The bottle looks nice though!

(robe chiasse claire, nez cerise âcre, boisée, acide, aigre, brune-rouge à souhait, still astonish)

Daboch (172) - Gdansk, POLAND - NOV 10, 2017
Czerwono-brązowe piwo, piana drobnopęcherzykowa, dość szybko znika ale ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromat winny, lekko słodki, trochę octu.W smaku lekko winne (ocet winny?), jest trochę kwaśnych owoców, posmak słodkawy. Dobre

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Аромат выраженный дрожжевой с нотами ягод и игристого вина. Карбонизация высокая но пенка жиденькая, быстро спадает. Во вкусе шампанское, ягоды, лёгкая терпкая кислинка послевкусие стойкое винное.

bbbeer (880) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2017
Red-brown with small tan head. Aroma of red fruit. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sweet up front, sour finish. Flavors at first are almost cider-like with some green apple then ends up more on red fruit or grape spectrum. Good although rather sweet and not my favorite style.

mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2017
[9772-20171030] Tap. Sweet caramel taffy and fruited grains aroma. Clear, deep russet red body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head and some thick lacing. Soured fruity candied berry and super sweet candied strawberry and soured everything in the finish. Medium body is sour and wowsa! Really interesting, feels like a barrel-aged fruity liquor. (7/3/8/4/16) 3.8
