One of my favourite beers. Because of his maturation in oak casks, we got here a beer with great and complex aroma, with a little bit resin taste. For the appearance, we face reddish-brown beer (as said in the description) but more than that, its like a very "brune kriek". I cant really describe the palate and taste beacause of all the particularities of its. You must try one of our best "Vieille Brune des Flandres".

Butelka 750ml, z terminem ważności 12/2016, szkło firmowe (pokal 25cl), temperatura degustacji 10 stopni+. Aromat: przyjemny, złożony, wyczuwalna kwasowość przypominająca biały ocet winny, owoce (wiśnia, porzeczka), po zamieszaniu szkła suszona śliwka, i bardziej słodkie owocowe aromaty (malina, truskawka) i podbudowa słodowa lekko karmelowa. Barwa: ciemny rubin, żona twierdzi że burgundowy;) klarowne. Piana: koloru kremowego wpadająca w jasny beż, średnia, drobno pęcherzykowa, nietrwała, opada do cieniutkiej warstwy zdobiąc przy tym delikatnie szkło. Smak: kwasowość octowa, winna, ciemne pieczywo, nuty garbnikowe, czerwone owoce, czuć wyraźnie leżakowanie w dębie. Goryczka niska, praktycznie nie wyczuwalna, wysycenie średnie, średnia a nawet niska pełnia, bardzo pijane, orzeźwiające, alk dobrze ukryty, niewyczuwalny. Piwo jak najbardziej w stylu i bez wad a przy tym trafiło w moje gusta więc ocena myślę że uczciwa. Jeszcze jedna butelka leżakuje, poczekam, sprbuję i uzupełnie opis. Nie każdemu może podejść, ktoś kto pije lagery może pomyśleć że zepsute i wogle fe, ale ten styl tak po prostu ma, taka idea.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2016 Framboosazijn en balsamico in de neus. Deze zetten zich voort in de smaak. Afdronk blijft matig hangen. Leuk zuur, maar net iets te zoet om een echte topper te zijn.

This tastes like red wine almost, but smooth and not as thick. I really enjoy it!!

falco242 (397) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 Has a bland aroma that I cant put my finger on but otherwise delicious taste. Varies from most sours in that cherry isn?t the defining flavor but good sour balance overall.

Bottle. Color is dark ruby red, small head. Aroma of acetone, wild cherry, alcohol, vinegar. Sweet sour taste, wild cherries, vinegar, alcohol. plums, spicy finish. Full body. Without a doubt a very interesting beer but Im not sure vinegar in such quantities is my thing.

2009.01.11 - From Bottle. Im a fan of sour ales and found this one to be a welcome departure from the norm. The smell is tart fruits with malts, a very pleasant aroma. Color is reddish-brown (more brown) with little foaming and good lacing. I expected a bit more tartness when I tasted it, but it ends with a sweetness that was quite unexpected. The more I got into it, the more I enjoyed it. Though a bit more sourness would have been a welcome addition. In all, a very strong beer, and Im glad I picked it up.
