A: my goodness this beers color is great its a red mahogany with a light tan head lace looks really good it kind of coats the glass

S: light vinegar dark fruit and a slightly sweet smell also detectable very good and complex smell here

T: taste is like the smell but not as sour as I would have thought if Duchesse is a 9 for sourness this is like a 5 I shared this beer with a friend but I could have drank the whole 750

M: med mouth feel med carbonation

D: yea I could have drank the whole 750 myself and I was not expecting that

overall: exceptional brew with a lot of history behind it. I was expecting this to be good but this blew me away fantastic brew

10/11/05- Purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle, WA.

Presentation- 11.2oz bottle with a best by date imprinted on the back label. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

Appearance- Murky plum, almost brown color. Medium 1/2 inch head which fades soon here after. Above average lacing.

Smell- Lots of sour and vinous like funk. About the only way I can describe it. Doesn't really smell "good", but fits the style perfect.

Taste- Not even as sour as it smells. Was looking for something more sour than La Folie, but what I got was a mildly tart and kinda sweet at the same time, brew. Maybe even some cherry and darker fruit flavors as well.

Mouthfeel- Low carbonation and pretty smooth. Easy drinker for a Flanders.

Drinkability- One of the better Flanders for sure. Super easy to drink. Great sweet and sour combo.
