Pours a dark brown color free of sediment. Aroma of red wine vinegar, oak and malts.
Mild tartness greets the palate along with brown sugar, port and vinegar. Sherry notes from oxidation, along with a nice cherry flavor. Medium bodied, well carbonated, tart mineral finish. Musty oak, faint herb and grass, but moreso a pretty solid oud bruin ale. Cocoa like malt underneath a light tartness. Overall, pretty good beer here, Id reach for this again.

Beer bottle (33 cl.) purchased from Bières & Chopes and tasted in 2014.

Appearance : dark brown color with tan foamy head.
Smell : sour woody and oak aromas.
Taste & mouthfeel : dry roasted malt flavors, with a slight acidity in finish.
Drinkability : a good beer in the Belgian style Flemish Red Ale, matured in oak barrels.

A- Reddish brown, very little head, dissipated quickly.

S- Sour cherries and Belgian candi sugar, lactic and acetic acid. Very sour nose, quite good.

T- Sourness is milder than the nose, it starts sour and finishes like a quad or non sour grand cru.

M- medium body, slight acid puckering

O- Great beer. Will have again. The sourness is relatively mild and the flavor is not as heavy as others in the style. I will still have it again.

The beer had a tart wine like aroma. Very little head on the pour/ almost none. Dark red in color. The beer starts with a fruity (plum maybe) tartness and ends with a hint of the oak. There is a malt backbone from start to finish. The tartness is really carried by the carbonation the bubbles have a very fine feel in the mouth.
