Bottle bought in Brussels with March 19, 2014, best-by date, cellared 3-4 months, poured in a tulip glass. I don't know about old, but it's very brown -- mahogany, opaque, just a glint of ruby in the glass when back-lit. Nice layer of beige foam, few visible bubble, shaped like heavy cream. Nose of fruit and spice, cherries and raspberries, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, a little sawdust -- fabulous but not very assertive. Restrained taste of cherry, root beer, rather sweet, a relatively light lick of acid cleansing it all up. Mouthfeel is a bit thin up front, but mouth-coating on the finish, a bit unexpected and milky, not as quenching as I'd expected. Overall good, would take one again, beautiful to look at, a shade milder than I hoped otherwise. (753 characters)

Bought this flemish red from Beer planet in Brussels. Pours a dark ruby brown into my Rodenbach glass. slight fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Smells Vineous and thick, like a brown bread. Taste is mild oaky, sweet tangy and sour. Light Vinegar flavors. There is a slight breadyness apparent here, possibly from the wheat malt. Mouthfeel is tangy and spritzy, but not overly carbonated. Slightly thick, but not exactly buttery. There is a understated dryness in the flavor of this beer that lingers on the tongue. A very smooth and nice Flemish red that I feel very fortunate to have tried. (593 characters)

25 cl bottle purchased from Beer Mania for a few euros, split with Gabe and Kyle at Beachwood BBQ a couple nights ago, reviewed from notes on my cell phone, poured into my Delerium Tremens tulip glass

A-Dark reddish brown, thin 1/2 inch light tan bubbly and creamy head that lasts a few minutes, some retention, minimal lacing
S-Mild tart, cherries, brown sugar, toffee, roasted nuts, faint vinegar, roastiness, funk, and mild sweetness
T-Good amount of sourness at first with slight vinegar flavors, cherries and toasted sweet malts in the middle, where there is a good amount of caramel and bread, finish is also tarty with more fruits than before, warms up nicely into having a nicer rounded but mellow inviting tartiness, really like the flavor profile of this one
M-Sweet, tarty, and slightly dry mouthfeel, soft carbonation that was fitting, medium bodied, taste lingered nicely
D-Could have drank a good amount of this, light in alcohol for the style and then would help its drinkability quite a bit, still very smooth and inviting for a Flanders

I had never heard of this beer before but this was a great surprise, bought it originally only because I was a fan of its style, wish I would have gotten more now, a great interpretation of the Flanders from a brewery that I do not usually appreciate too much, recommended (1,328 characters)
