Im just getting into Flemish Ales, but after trying several I find myself confused by this beers high ratings. Far less tart than Monks and considrably less cherry than Petrus, this beer is middle of the road, very average, doesnt stand out...

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2005
(Bottle, ABS drinks) Dark brown colour, little slowly diminishing beige head, no lacing. Lots of acid bubbles. Aroma of orange peels, hops, spices, light alcohol, sweet fruits, light raisin, cherries, soap. Sour, spicy and sweet taste. Flavour of fruits (cherry) and wood. Vivid mouthfeel, almost like cola blended with alcohol. Some sweet and not too harsh maltiness in the finish.

nazbion (302) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JUN 3, 2016
Pours hazy ruby brown with beige head. Aroma of red vinegar, nuts, some dark fruits. Taste is sour and sweet, balanced. Medium body, soft carbonation, easy drinking. Great!

Adamsville (302) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2016
Apparence : Brune, cuivre, reflets rouges-orange, faible col sans rtention, lgre dentelle, carbonatation semble moyenne et moyennement rapide. Nez : Vinaigre balsamique, touche sucre, bois, alcool, tannins de raisins. Got : quilibre entre le sucre et lacidit, vinaigre balsamique la framboise, bois en mi-bouche. Sensation : Effervescence faible moyenne, finale mi-acide mi-sucre qui trane plus sur le sucre, moyennement longue, astringence du bois. Corps moyen, mais tout de mme huileux. Bref : Bel quilibre entre lacidit et le sucre rsiduel, surtout pour une bire sre. Lacidit nest dailleurs jamais agressante. La framboise apporte dfinitivement une touche intressante.

Case (300) - GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
The classic Flanders red that unlike Rodenbach which goes towards extremely sour is sweeter and more balanced. Pours red-brown with small head. Aromas of vinegar, cherries, a bit of barnyard. Taste is an explosion of sweet candy sugar and sour vinegar, lots of oak, spicy, fruity, apples, cranberries, sour cherries. Highly complex, you discover something new with every sip. The high sugar content kicks this beer into overdrive and makes this such a fascinating drink but also makes it more of a desert beer for me.

demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2006
Beautiful. Smells of cherries and red berries. Pours a wonderfully dark brown color with a minute head. It does have some wine characteristics but the traditional slight sourness is wonderful

Had this on tap a few times at the Stumbling Monk in Capitol Hill, Seattle. Just an incredible beer. Very fruity. Sour without being overpowering. The color is gorgeous on it too.
