Solid old world style from a new world brewery who seems to nail the history styles. Great maltiness and sour with just enough tannins fr the barrels to complete the full affect. Definitely ately worth the reasonable price of entry.

750ml bottle poured into pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy rich brown with one finger of hot chocolate head that leaves sheets of sticky lace as it recedes.

Smells of cherry juice, vinegar, brown sugar Christmas cookies, barrel wood, soft cheese and mild leafy hops.

Tastes of cold cherry pie, sour grapes, sour candy apples, lemon, red wine vinegar, chocolate covered raisins, wine barrel staves, gently cheesy funk and more dreamy hops.

Feels round and soft. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes dry.

Verdict: Vigorously recommended Very tasty and in a nice big bottle for good measure.

A hazy mahogany body (lovely sunset red) with a sand head that fizzles out rapidly.
Aroma is fruity and tart, of cherry and raspberry.
Aggressively sour, a real punch to the palate, like popping a warheads candy when you were a kid. Candy sugar sweetness, as opposed to fruity. Cherry, raspberry, currant flavours, with a touch of earthiness. Acidic and dry with a short finish.
Overall, it's ok for the style, but nothing exciting to drink, doesn't have depth. Have had better examples that were more balanced.

750ml, caged and corked bottle (@ 7.0% ABV) - these ones from LTM always seem to impress, to let's get a move on!

This beer pours a clear, dark red-brick brown colour, with two skinny fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and fizzy tan head, which leaves just a bit of spotty and blinking alien spaceship lace in places around the glass as things slowly abate.

It smells of tart cherry and apple vinegar, gritty and grainy caramel malt, some earthy funkiness, reduced brown sugar syrup, a sort of edgy barrel stave oakiness (more wet wood than anything), tanned leather, and some very tame earthy and dead leafy noble hop bitters. The taste is bready and doughy caramel malt, balsamic vinegar, some cheese-forward funk, molasses, sour cherry and lemon flesh, a sort of musty barrel oakiness (some vanilla thankfully coming out to play), plain packaged nutty notes, and more understated leafy, weedy and gently perfumed floral hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly supportive via its stoic frothiness, the body a decent medium weight, and mostly smooth, the big sugary malt kind of batting away any and all funky and/or sour measures here, to great local acclaim. It finishes off-dry, the malt continuing its stranglehold on power, while the tart fruit, musty funk, and barrel astringencies check their watches for the last time today.

Overall, this is one heady and full-seeming version of the style, with the Brett character thankfully a background player, at 'best'. Just sour enough from the cherry-led fruitiness, and thus it comes across as balanced and appealing to yer typical agnostic - my thumbs aren't typing, as they're pointed back at me right now.

Pours a nice bubbly head, ring of retention shows a little lace.

Certainly some sourness in the aroma, a bit earthy, oak.

It is sour, but the tannins give it a real wine like character... Cherries, raisin, oak, treacle, hints of roasted nut. Definitely some vinegar character, but it adds depth rather than detracting from the rest.

Good body, well carbonated, with a slightly drying finish.

Almost opaque dark brown color with a red hue and faint activity. Creamy light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with faint lacing. Flavors of wood, vinegar, cheese, ester, dark fruits, tart, dark grains and herbal spices. Extremely sour and vinous with a thick syrupy candy feel. Slick light body with soft carbonation. Strong sour finish, dry yet clears quite fast, with a pleasant tongue coating oak barrel feel, cherries and putrid cheese. Really boozy and acidic. Not very fresh, but very complex, flavorful, and unique. Although not my type of beer, it's nice to try as an appetizer. Overall good quality craft.

750ml corked and caged bottle poured into tulip 12/5/16 cheers mathieuc via CANBIF

A reddish brown that darkens towards the center, big beige head makes some noise as it falls leaving no lace

S heaps of brown sugar and balsamic vinegar, wet wood, has a little funk but I don't think the brett's taken charge in this fresh bottle but its hiding in the background, just a little sour cherry, a hint of leather, smells great

T thankfully the nose follows through, the sour cherry has some sour chocolate but its very faint and late, lots of brown sugar, vinegar, wet woods still there, tastes bang on for the style

M medium weight, tangy, stops short of sour, oil slick on the palate but a little sticky on the lips, vinegar at first and a hint of smokey cocoa well after the fact

O I'm impressed, this one has plenty going on and hits the style right on the money, maybe a little too easy drinking, sexy liquid

Can someone tell me when 3M started taking on tough Belgian styles and nailing them bang on? I think this is up there with some of the classics, I love this brewery!!

Appearance - This beer pours a beautiful brown almost black color but you can see brown light through it on the edges. The head was offwhite and faded very quick which I expected. and the carbonation still seems lively even though not long lasting.

Aroma - Vinegar, Some red grapes, light prune. and some oak.

Taste - Wow that kicks you in the palate lol, I get smacked with balsamic Vinegar up front followed by dark grapes, I get some chocolate notes underneath the sourness and then it finishes with a nice oak although the wods bitterness again is well concealed under the sourness

Feel - This has a light feel with almost silky carbonation. It suits it well.

Overall - This was my first Flanders oud bruin so I'm going with my style readings on judging this but I feel they did a great job. It has all your typical flavors found in the style and mixes them extremely well. This is an extremely delicious beer. Try it if you can!

Beautiful sweetness in the aroma and a nice tartness with a sweet woody note that is far too drinkable. Seems to nail all the requisite flavours. Great stuff.
