look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Supreme sour and savory fusion is on display with this Belgian-brewed Sour Ale that favors a balance of succulent sweetness notes that are hard to put your finger on. But with this ale, placing a taste bud is quite easy.

Dark ruby-brown in color, the haze of the beer masks its color and pushes it to an obscure russet dark color. Nearly absolute stillness ensues as the beer relaxes in the glass and preferred still character. Dark for most wines, the beer can resemble aged sherry with its deep saturation of color.

Strongly aromatic, the beer doesn't need any spring of carbonation, it puts on a full-on display of tart and savory balsamic, oxidized sherry wine, soft brandyish sweet notes and savory near-soy sauce-like character. Black cherries, tart apples, and dry white wine all play into the dry fruit and savory scent.

Softer and more savory in taste, the flavor spread of the beer is variant but doesn't share the high sourness in taste that the aromas suggested. Instead the savory-sweet and tart notes of sherry, soy sauce, oak and toasty chocolate greet the early palate. Surprisingly, the tastes only settle into more savory tobacco, leather, and tea-like taste while restraining much of the sourness that was expected from the nose.

There's a pleasant inky weight that these beers do to the palate sensations. Even with the sheer acidity that wants to pang against the tongue, the beer offers up a palate-stripping acidity that's near wine-like and warms the palate much the same.

Cuvee Freddy is an exquisite ale that seems to carry the fundamental complexities of Flanders Red Ales and Oude Bruins but with the aged, earthen maturity of unblended 3-year Lambics. Its a refined taste that deserves a sophisticated palate for true appreciation.

330ml bottle into Delirium Noel snifter

A - Very dark brown beer. Looks a little watery after the giant cola colored head fizzes away. No head retention, no lacing. Watch out for sediment when pouring.

S - At first I was getting some iron character, but that faded after a few minutes. I'm glad, because that is almost always unenjoyable for me. A nice, classic tart esters, some barrel - red wine? - and a clear presence of sweet dark malted barley.

T - Sweet malts with a lot of sour cherry and tart candy flavors.

M - Effervescent and refreshing. Leaves you a bit puckered, but it's nice. Feels like you've been drinking a nice red wine.

O - A very nice beer. I am glad that I was able to have a few bottles of this, and could see myself having it again. It's a little on the spendy side, and I would say it's only a must try for real fans of Flemish Ales. I wish there wasn't as much sediment in the bottle, that isn't as appealing. If this were on draft, I would definitely get a glass. Worth trying.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Served from an 11.2 oz stubby bottle into a Kriek Belle-Vue tulip. Served just below cellar temps.

Appearance- Dirty, dark blackish/grey. Can't see anything through it. Doesn't look like there's any carbonation in it. Zero head.

Smell- Heavy cherries up front. Bourbon-like lingering aromas of caramel, vanilla, and oak take up the rest of the aroma followed by some light boozieness. Cherries still dominate this beer.

Taste- Cherry tartness mingles with some heavy oakyness. Lemon and earthy grassyness. Plums or another similar stone fruit take its place. Mild tartness, less than I suspected from the smell or style. Bourbon flavors finish this beer.

Mouthfeel- This is where it loses me. On a scale of 1-10 for carbonation (10 being highest), this has a 1. It's barely there. Mild tartness, not puckering though. Smooth finish. I can't decide whether or not I like the lack of carbonation or not.

Overall- I'm torn on this beer. I don't know whether I love it or hate it.

look: 3 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

11.2 oz bottle poured into a tulip.

(A)- Pours a very dark and murky purple to burnt sienna brown in color. Some semi transparent brown froth that dissipated quickly.

(S)- Very acidic with an inky-like dark fruit aroma. Lots of dank and dirty; almost smoky oak with subtle dark cocoa. Very vinegar-like throughout. A very intense aroma for the style, but I like it.

(T)- Not quite as intense as the smell was, but with very similar characters. A great underlying acidic and vinegar-like sourness. The fruits are extremely dark like plum, prune, cassis, yet quite dirty/inky-like with a subtle smokiness that pokes through with dark cocoa and oak. Finishes very dry.

(M)- Very very subdued carbonation level, but with its vibrant acidity it really is not missed all that much. A very deep and dark rendition of the style with subtle sweetness despite all the acidity and very dirty/smoky oak.

(O)- I can see why not many would like this one, but I certainly do. Like I mentioned before, this is the darkest/deepest take on the style I have had with it being almost so earthy, I do get essences of actual dirt; strange but enjoyable somehow. It is really not much to look at, but the rest of this beer shines.

An older vintage (2008?) shared with thepeter as a morning tick from his cellar. Tried this on draft on Borfets and since he had this vintage bottle in the cellar why not?

Redish purple in color. minimal short lasting head. Crazy nose. Fruty, musky and sour smelling. Awesome.

Very tart and complex. Sour cherries plums with dried fruits mixed in. This aged very well. One of the best examples of this style. Not to much vinegar, actually quite balanced.

Much better than the fresh draft verision. Great stuff and the 3-4 years in thepeter's cellar did great things to this beer.

A- pours a dark dark brown color with a very short lived light tan fizzy head. Looks a bit like cola in my goblet.

S- sticky ripe cherry, damp musty oak and basaltic vinegar with notes of leather and lovely funk.

T- tart acidic sour cherry, underripe blackberry and rich oak flavors. Notes of leather, oak and basaltic vinegar mid palate. Finishes with a smidge of malt sweetness and cranberry with a lingering tartness and red wine tannins.

MF- slick acidic mouthfeel with a medium body. Low soft carbonation.

D- very drinkable for the sour lover. A bit to acidic for those who don't care for the style.

Overall an awesome beer.

For a Flanders old brown, this is decent since it scratches on the surface of what the style could be. But unfortunately, there is really no longevity to the ride, at least not as much as I would think is appropriate. Sure, it hits on the chracteristics of the style very well, but it's gone before you know it and just too thin overall. Don't get me wrong, I like this beer, and it's nice. But if only it could have been just a little bit more, we'd be looking at an amazing beer.

Appears quite dark with no head.

Citrus sour, with a fruity sweet smell

Oak and lime sour, yeast and dark fruit. There's a caramel note that starts to grow on you as the beer warms.

Thin but not watery, and oily kind of feel. Not alot of carbonation.

The flavor of this reminds one of a whiskey sour mixed drink. Just with a touch of carbonation.

Lovely unassuming bottle picked up from K&L Wine Merchants in Redwood City, CA.

Pours a light but unassuming brown-red colour, with what seems to be a filmy, unadventurous head, that rapidly settles out into a fine crest of beige foam. Extremely powdery carbonation forms when tilted, leaving a slick film of lace wherever it goes. Although after a while the head dissipates, it's a very fine looking beer.

Nose is wondrously full of rich oak barrels, mingled with subtle vinous acidity. The body and depth lends some deep grain notes, hinting at chocolate and resiny bark. The acidity is never overdone, but it performs a duty in lightening the rest of the nose. Really lovely.

Taste is smooth and light, and very nicely balanced between the grain/malt sweetness that lends the hint of cocoa and chocolate, and the acidity, which leavens and crisps up the palate. Unfortunately, the acidity also flattens any potential complexity: leaving the beer smooth and consistent, but filtering out any oddities. Acidity ends up being rather acute, being strikingly dominant on the back.

Feel is very light, leaving a sharpness, but no real impression on the mouth.

Overall, I was a little disappointed with this brew. It had so much potential, but really slammed it hard with the acidity, steamrolling any true complexity or subtlety that might be there. While the elements themselves might be very pleasant, it fails somewhat as an overall package.

Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy burgundy color ale with a medium size foamy head with average retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of sour and tart notes mix in with light sweet notes and some sherry. Taste is also a nice mix between some tart notes which are well balanced with some notes of sherry and port with a subtle vinous character. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very nice and not too one-dimensional on the sour side of things.

A: Pours a deep purple with a thin wisp of khaki mousse. Very still in the glass with few traces of carbonation.

S: Intense and woody on the nose with aromas of balsamic vinegar, woody spice, clotted cream, cider apples, and black cherries particularly dominant.

T: Notes of salty brine, oak, clotted cream, black cherry, pomegranate, cider apples, black currants, and balsamic vinegar wash across the palate. The finish is puckering with vinegar and dark fruit flavors.

M: Medium to full bodied, yet thin, oily, and slick. Feels much lighter than it really is. The alcohol is extremely well hidden.

O: This is a decent enough Flemish brown, but I would have liked to see an even more intense, assertive flavor profile and a bit more chewiness in the mouth. Though it's a little too slick in my opinion, this is an above-average take on the style.

Purchased randomly at random for a random review. You ever pick up a bottle without even looking at it? That's exactly what I did here. Awesome.

This pours a deep, opaque mahogany brown. Barely a head at all, which should be expected considering the alcohol content and the style. Wisps of light brown at the corners.

The aroma is deep, unique and crazy. The oak aging certainly plays front and center. As you handle that there is a sniff of the signature sour yeasts--and a little cherry, sherry--very much like a bourbon.

The experiment fails starting here. While the oak aging did a lot for the aroma, the flavor barely ticks with any of the woodsiness you would expect. Also, the actual hope of having a strongly flavored flanders really falls short. The vinegary, acidic flavor is so muted here it is truly disappointing. Further, there is little hint of the mild malts used. Pretty lackluster.

The mouthfeel is a little thin, even for this style. The carbonation is lower as it should be but still a little less. I assume it is from the excessive aging and the finishing, but it certainly seems thin and underwhelming.

Eh. Could wear it as a cologne (not really) but I guess I'll just drink and enjoy it (also not really).

11.2floz bottle into a Goblet glass

Thanks to Finewinemike for this one

Best by Jan 2014

A- Pours a really really dark reddish brown that appears an opaque black with small reddish hues in the light. No head at all even with a vigorous pour, just some small white bubbles around the rim of the glass.

S- Sweet and lactic cherries, apple cider, and vinous notes with tons of funk. A good amount of balsamic vinegar and slight musty wood notes coming through as well.

T- Up front the balsamic vinegar flavor dominates with hints of sweetness from the cherries. The back end provides a lot of musty oak notes and funky fruity flavors.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a nice slightly tart finish.

SkÅL!

Served from bottle into a Duck-Rabbit stemmed snifter. Poured a massively dark brown (basically black) with a minimal light tan head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, tart cherry, acetic acid, and tart. The flavor was of sweet malt, tart cherry, caramel, wood, and subtle sour. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. This brew really threw me off as it smelled as if it would be much more sour/tart than it actually was. This one did have the tart/sour aspect going on, but it was not the dominant flavor in it at all. The flavors that were present really did a nice job of working together and enhancing one another. Just wish there would have been a little bit of the acetic acid present that I picked up on in the aroma. Defintely worth trying if you get the opportunity.

This is a new one to me, I've never heard of the brewery before. But with this bottle they are high in the running for worst label ever. This was an extra from finewinemike.

CFR Jan 2014 Lot: 472 stamped on the cap.

Appearance
The head is slow to form and quick to disperse. It doesn't seem to hold very much carbonation. The beer is a really dark cola color, it's deepness is intriguing.

Aroma
This is a very inviting aroma. Tartness is sharp, but not frightening. This stuff is loaded with black cherry goodness. Swirling kicks up plenty of dark, balsamic vinegar and the sweet vanilla notes of oak. There is a hidden shot of basement, moldy funk hidden within all of the rich, fruity aromas.

Taste
The taste doesn't seem as well seated and focused as the aroma. There is a lot of extreme tannic acidity that gets close to being medicinal or chemical. Cherry skins and pits are there providing tartness, sweetness and more tannins at once. The oak comes in very strong shortly after the palate adjusts to the tannins. Lots of fresh, damp, pulpy wood with a little bit of vanilla interwoven.

Mouthfeel
Very low carbonation, but it doesn't really hurt this beer too much. It seems to work with the dryness and mild tartness of this stuff.

Overall
Smells really good, but the flavor is a bit sloppy; it starts to be all-over-the-place. This is still a good surprise since this is certainly a beer I'd pass on if I saw it on shelves; actually I'd probably never notice it on shelves.

4/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance – Pours an almost opaque color into a generic tulip. Slight red can be shown around the edges but overall, this sucker is practically impenetrable by light. Less than a finger of very quickly dissipating head is achieved with a decent pour, that leaves little lacing.

Smell – Acidic characteristics up front, red wine vinegar, sour cherry, granny smith apples, slight vanilla (an odd yet pleasant aroma I was not expecting), and of course lots of funk.

Taste – Red wine up front – the initial taste reminds me of consecration but not on the same level/caliber to be honest. Dark fruits such as cherries and plums, more sweet malts and oak come through midway, and at the end is just the hint of vanilla. The warmer this gets, the more the tart/sour cherries come through. However, not to be a downer or a negative nancy, this just isn’t on par with what I was expecting. I was hoping it to be a bit more mouth puckering and what not. Perhaps one with age...

Mouthfeel – Low (too low in my opinion) carbonation, medium bodied.

Overall – A good flanders, and one I’d honestly pick up in the future to see what age would do to it. I’m in the process of trying to find RR replacements now that I’m back in IL, and this one may have to do for a Consecration Also wish there was a bit more carbonation.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance -- Pours a dark brown, bordering on plum, with zero head. A fine ring of suds crowns the glass. Great hue, but otherwise not a showstopper.

Smell -- Okay, things are getting better: Tart cherry, raisin, underripened berries, cocoa, wet oak, vanillin, bright acetic tart, and a dab of funk. Lots of depth, very pleasant.

Taste -- Dark fruit, apple must, cocoa, berry tartness, vinous oak and vanilla. Not quite as acetic as the nose suggested, but slightly funkier - I like it. Finish is plum skin, roast malt, and acetic tartness.

Mouthfeel -- Medium-light body with milder prickly carbonation. I was really worried that this would be flat. Slightly undercarbonated, but otherwise great.

Overall -- This is really quite nice. Great roast malt base compliments the tart components. Well-balanced, no elements outpacing the others. I have a sneaking suspicion that I got an undercarbed bottle - will have to try this again. Definitely worth seeking out.

A tart but inviting beer, Cuvee Freddy pours a deep burgundy or mahogany color, leaving a fine ring of tan foam behind. The nose is sour with a whiff of vanilla, likely due to the aging in oak barrels. In short, this Flanders Oud Bruin is bold and full-bodied; cherry tartness and the aforementioned woody character are apparent in each and every mouthful.

Its drinkability is enhanced by the softening of the sour flavor in the drying finish. Let it linger on your tongue and you'll also notice hints of leather and dark skinned fruit. Overall, this is an aggressive and slightly acidic beer that serves as a noteworthy example of its style.

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a dark brown color and thick texture. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Not a whole lot of lacing.

Small bottle poured into a tulip.

Dark brown, maybe with a hint of red, not much head present.
Cherries, toasted malts, some sour notes, fairly sweet aroma.
Fairly sweet, some funky blue cheese like notes, hints of cherries but not much sourness. Medium body with a light carbonation.

A pretty solid beer. I wish I got more cherry flavor and a bit more tartness. That said it has some nice funky notes. I'm glad I tried this one and wouldn't mind revisiting it in the future.

Thanks to Chris for sharing this at a tasting. Poured into a Weyerbacher tulip.

A: Muddy brown body with some frothy tan bubbles. Forgettable.

S: Clear, sharp acetic acid, cherry, and light malty sweetness. Quite nice, if not as complex as it could be.

T: Red wine vinegar, vanilla, bready malt, and a sweet, sticky finish. Good sweet + sour balance.

M: Sticky medium body with light carbonation. Not bad, but not quite good either.

D: A little too sticky and sweet to be really drinkable; where's the barrel?

Notes: While this was quite an enjoyable beer, it kind of got lost in the haze of other awesome brews at the tasting. I'm entering this review less than a week later, and I really can't remember anything beyond what I've written in my notes. This was a decent, but totally forgettable, Oud Bruin. I'm really glad I got to try it, of course, and I look forward to sampling more from what seems to be an innovative, interesting brewery.

Cheers!
