Vintage 2005.

The colour is red-brown, the beige compact head is finger thick.

The smell got sour “wheat beer” flavours, but also a vinegar-like lambic-note. There are hints of raspberries, redcurrant and lingonberry. The smell is very fresh and inviting.

The taste is lambic-sour but also fruity with flavours of raspberries and gooseberries. The sourness is replaced by a mild sweetness. The aftertaste is shorter than expected and dry with some fruity notes.

A fine belgian ale, but not exceptional.

A flanders sour aroma, wine like, alcohol whiff. Nice redish sight. Ok in taste, understated cherry and not overly sour. Wood, vanilla. Moderate carbonation. Medium to thin mouthfeel, but refreshing easy drink. Underated, worth a try, and I would have again.

Pours a dark brown color with a reddish tint, almost like a wine. Smell is pungent and involves plums, raisins and other dark fruits. The taste is quite unique. Much like the plums and raisins mentioned before, but there is a hint of the more tasty wine in there. It leaves an aftertaste that is really enjoyable, of a sweetness like plums. This is a great beer that is unique, any one who is looking to try something new will enjoy.

Bottle: Poured a brownish red color beer with a medium off-white foamy head with some pretty good retention. Aroma is quite sour and you can already feel the effect of the oak on this beer. Taste is quite acid with some subtle sweetness at the end. Cheery feels is less present then in the Rodenbach Grand Cru but can still be detected. Overall, I find this one to be a good Flemish sour ale and would even say that it seems to be underrated compared to some other Flemish Sour ale.

murky red brown, not a terribly big head. proper soggy wood and sour cherry notes in the aroma. taste brings that wonderful acidic touch along with a fruity sweetness and a soft (but strong) sourness. smooth and tasty, thoroughly drinkable, glad am I that two bottles turned up instead of one. Dee-lish.

Very sour tart nose and palate, with hints of cherry (the skins) in both. Sweetish cherry start, with a sweet and sour finish, a bit vinegary, very refreshing full-flavoured flanders red, very cheap in belgium to, one of the best of its style (that i've had so far!!!!)
