It was ok but not my favorite. I had two others in similar style. I prefer the lighter colored Flemish ales. Birthday gift from garys in basking ridge

In my opinion, this is the standard by which all Flemish reds should be judged. Tart and perfectly balanced. I don't like to pay for it, but I love to drink it.

Ruby red in color, head has good retention. Vinegar odor. Taste sour cherry, red-wine vinegar, light carbonation. Finishes dry. This beer has grows on me each time I revisit it

Did a blind side by side with Half Pints' Old Red Barn. Half Pint's was far and away the winner. Rodenbach was cloudy with a distinctly artificial cherry note and not much sourness. Muddled compared to their modern local contemporary...
