Bottle. Pour is a clear deep copper with a small tan head. Aroma is lightly malty, lightly woody, lightly hoppy, and very dry. Enticing. Flavor is also quite dry with subtle wood, distant malt, light red wine, light wood, and a faint floral character. This is pretty subtle, very drinkable, and pretty good. tastes like you could drink about a gallon, but I think it would hurt the next day.

Thanks to Sam for sharing! Deep burgundy with shallow head. Smells like a muted flemish sour and is slightly artificial smelling. It’s sugary and smells a bit like grape kool aid. Taste a little like it too. Slightly sour tastes of grapes and balsamic vinegar

Bottle dated 090414. Very good young Flemish style ale. Pours dark brown with rudy notes, fairly clear (no bottle sediment). Sour notes overpower the aroma. Sour acetic taste with great after notes of sour cherry & oak. Good ’funk’iness and mouthfeel, low carbonation. Almost winelike. Great beer, will buy again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample from bottle, Glunz Beer Expo, April ’10. Brown in color, but a little clearer than the sour brown ales I’ve known. A little bit of foam from the bottle. Lightly tart smell. At 5% abv (the description I have says it is), this is directed to the table instead of the cellar. A tart cherry flavor, not overwhelming, but it’s matched up to the malt to produce just a nice bit of sweetness, and with tartness again rather than any bitterness. Very well made. Goes down nicely, like a Berliner Weisse.
