Funkier and not as sweet as Duchesse. Pours a brown edged ruby with one finger thick tan colored head. Dense half inch cap remains. Smell: green apple, date bread, barnyard funk, sour peach, with herbal and vanilla-ish oaky notes. Taste: dried cherries and stone fruit with brown sugar note, then growing acid with grape and peach skin, finishing with green apple candy and oak contributions. Light-medium bodied, relaxed carbonation well suited to the experience. Best by 2/2015. Excellent!

Pours dark ruby, huge (more than 3 fingers, didn't manage to pour the whole beer in) bubbly beige head, looking like honeycomb as it pops off to a small cap and sticky lacing, tons of traces.
Smell of vinegar, touch of cherries and caramel, faint barnyard, foreboding a big acidity. Some alcoholic kind of vapors creep up the nostrils.
Sourness and acidity in the start, not extremely fruity (some cherries, apple, pear, lemon), but with a pronounced toasted maltiness with some brown sugar. Some damp wood notes and barnyard funk, not too strong, but delivering a dry grassy/green straw finish. Gets more fruity as you drink it. Aftertaste have some light woody notes, bit of sweetness and a bit of fruit.
Medium body, a bit too carbonated, but it fits nicely.
This was tasty, not one of the extremely sour Flanders reds, but a bit sweeter.
