Pours brown with sweet malty aroma. Flavor is malty, sweet and has some fruityness to it. Where is the sourness in this flemmish ale?

Bottle, new label "met wijnsmaak". Light bodied but pleasant vinous lightly sour flavour. An easy drinking oud bruin, and why not? If this were served in pints it would make sense.

On tap @ Brasserie Beck in Washington DC. Pours dark amber with a 1 finger creamy tan head. The nose is nice and sour with lots fo funk. Taste is nice on the front, has a lot of what I like in a sour, that unfortunately dies rather quickly and it could end being a much better brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small bottle. Clear reddish-brown colour with a tan head that reduced to a rim. Interesting sour-sweet fruit aroma, some lactic character, even hints of marcipan. Nice lactic fruit flavours, mild marcipan character, dry finish. Quite sweet in the middle, though. Highly interesting, world-class if less sweet.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dirty redish-brown body topped by a short-lived beige head. At a tasting of popular belgium Flemish Sours (Duchesse, Rodenbach GC, Vlaamse, Queue de Charrue, Vichtenaar, etc.) the Bacchus came out more caramelized and felt a little bit sweeter than the others. The oak notes are not as prominent as I like them to be in a Flemish Sour. Attack of round creamy malts and a fruity sour finish. The too-soft carbonation makes it feel somewhat lifeless. Not bad per say but as far as Flemish Sours are concerned this one is as memorable as a Chef Boyardee meal.
