Dark brown reddish pour into a sambuca snifter with a half inch head. The aroma is sour, apple cider, and brown sugar. The taste is fruity and sour. The cherry, citrus, raspberry and brown sugar flavors melt perfectly with the 6.2% alcohol. This is the best flemish sour ale that I have had thus far. Kick ass brew.

On draught, at Deep Ellum, Boston

Just plain awful vinegar aroma. Was surprised at the aroma and unable to get past that. When I held my breath and tasted it, it tasted like a decent Flanders Red, but the aroma was just too powerful. Ordered a full pour, along with 2 other friends. I finished the drink, but will not order another one in future.

Achet la SAQ, avec une date dexpiration du 27 fvrier 2010. Dgust dans un verre trappiste de chimay. Dune couleur brun rouge orang ayant une belle mousse et une bonne carbonation. Senteur de bois, de compote de pomme srette, de caramel, de fm avec une touche de vanille. Got de rhubarbe, de pomme grenade, de canneberge, de bois, de caramel avec un lger got de cerise avec un peu damertume. Une sensation moelleuse, crmeuse avec une longue finition sec et collante.Je ladore et je vie chaque fois un moment de plnitude.

Botella. Presencia rojiza con corona blanca poco persistente. Aroma cido con notas a madera. En boca la acidez es ms moderada que el olfato con un toque de cuadra como las gueuze, claras notas de barrica. Muy bebible

Bottle courtesy of Bigmmartin. One of my first sours and I think BigM was trying to take it easy on me. The beer is sour and tart but not overly so. Nice looking beer with a nice brownish amber color. Aroma show more sourness that the flavor does but is still fruity. The flavor is a balance of tartness and fruit flavors. Enjoyable, but lighter bodied than I would have liked or expected.

Juggernaut84 (256) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2017 Optik: tiefes Rot und feiner Schaum, nichts zu beanstanden und sehr appetitlicher Anblick. Nase: reife Sure und trockene Frchte, wenn man schwenkt kommt eine stark tzende Klebstoffnote die in Apfelessig endet. Fr mich ein zu krasses Off-Flavor auch fr Sauer. Mund: samtig weiches Mundgefhl adstringierende Balsamico-Sure die zusammen mit der leichten Carbonisation schn prickelt. Der Abgang ist trocken und anhaltend. wre die Nase nicht so mies wrde ich es mgen.
