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.

Dark brown, small brown, some carbonation. Smells aceton, berries, candy. Refreshing, tastes burberry, some aceton (which is surprisingly gentle and is intact with the beer, thus a plus), low sourness. Very good.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2010 25 cl bottle, pours ruby with a minor head, aroma of slightly tart cherry and wood, taste is pretty much the same, it is has a pretty good balance between sour and sweet, ok finish.

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.

Piękny, głęboki, ciemno-rubinowy kolor. Jasno beżowa pianka szybko znika ale łatwo ją wzbudzić. Aromat - wino, szmpan, piwo - gdybym nie wiedział, że to piwo byłoby ciężko decydować. Później pojawiają się nuty nalewki owocowej. Zniewalający aromat. Nisko wysycone,bardzo delikatnie kwaśne, może czuć nieco alkoholu. Dość słodkie, może nieco landrynkowe, najbliżej mu do wiśni. Słodycz bardzo dobrze wyważona z kwaśnością. Wybitne piwo.

Bouteille 33cl au Wine More Time, Bordeaux. Un bel exemple de oud bruin flamande, arome et goût de vinaigre, un superbe équilibre entre acidité et amertume. Un délice!

3.5
Pudding (254) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
330ml bottle from Cotteridge Wines, B30. A pleasant drink, a cross between a beer and a wine. Deep red/brown colour. Manages to be sweet and astringent together. Wine-like tang and oak detectable. One for the connoisseur.
