Fles bij een vriend, uitgeschonken in bokaal glas. Donker roodbruin, mahoniekleurig bier, met een kleine stevige witte schuimkraag die kleeft aan het glas. Het aroma is zurig en houtig met tonen van balsamico azijn, eikenhout, appels, cider, rood fruit als kersen en rode bessen, vanille, rode wijn en aardse en leerachtige accenten. Het smaakpallet is typisch Vlaams Rood Bruin, complex met meerdere smaaklagen, zurig en zoet tegelijk, heel fruitig met tonen van appels, kersen, bessen en rode druiven. Vineus en aardachtig, gebalanceerd met zoete fruitige tonen. Prikkelende carbonatie en licht droge fruitige afdronk. Een lekker Vlaams Rood Bruin, wel voor de liefhebbers van zurige bieren. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 Oh the sour goodness! Found this lurking in the back at Town Hall Brewpub tonight. normally i would like to have the local, but I find it hard to find Flemish Ale in my perts.

Pours dark with a sour aroma assailing my senses. First tastes (at a much colder tempurate than the bottle specifies) are of soy and vinegar. Once the ale warmed, fruit tastes overwhelm the vinegar. Finish is still a little sour but well adjusted by the malt.

Aroma is sour cherry, toffee, berries, balsamic vinegar. Appearance is redish brown crystal clear with small head. Taste is light sour cherry with a sweet caramel malt backbone. Berries, balsamic vinegar, woody. Palate is medium light. A crisp beer but with a slickness that lingers. Carbonated well, champagne like. Overall a very nice beer. Unique in flavor, sweetness blends well with sourness. Well done.

ruby brown with a medium carmel head. sour cherry, toffee aroma. thick and slick body with soft carbonation. sweet carmel with some oak and sour cherries, but the sweetness is a little overpowering. i like this style but found this one too sweet

Claret colored body with a sandy-brown head. Streaming thin bubbles rising to the surface at a frantic pace. Very oaky and somewhat sour cherry-like aroma. Very tart front, a middle that is quite sweet and woody and a rather intensely bitter finish. My wife took a sip and immediately picked up on the balsamic vinegar theme. To me, this is Rodenbach on steroids.

Is this beer or balsamic vinegar? Disgusting. I don't know if this is really old or what it's supposed to taste like, but this was undrinkable.

Pours dark, clear reddish-brown, fruity-- apples and wood nose, intensely sour but sweet, big head dissipates slowly; lingering sweet & sour acid taste, carbonation is almost champagne in the beginning but goes flat quickly. Very good.
