On tap at the Eccentric Cafe yesterday. Served in a snifter. Pours a slightly-muddied moderate brown color with a thin tan head. After a few good swirls, a nice head forms and sticks around for a bit. Eventually this falls into a thin collar. The nose is really nice and tart. Mostly lactic sourness with a touch of acetic character and some cherries. Taste is really nice as well, blending a bit of fruit with some lightly-sweet malt and good acidity. Mouthfeel is really nice, balancing sweetness and acid quite well. This was definitely toward the Flanders Red end of the spectrum and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

On-tap at the Cafe...A medium copper, clear. The head is light head, ok thin ring but no lacing...The aroma is really light, wish it was stronger as this shows some promise. Light cherries, vinegar, a little oak. Reminds me of an American oud bruin. Surprised it was aged in a wine barrel, donít get that at all. Lactic sour notes, want them stronger... The taste is stronger but not as good as the nose, lightly tart, vinegar, oak, pretty light and boring finish. I get the wine barrel in the finish and feel, lots of grape skin going on. An average sour that Iíd skip in the future.

(Draught at GABF) clear amber with tan bubbles. Nose of tons of oak, vinegar, and tangerines. Taste of tart cherries, cedar, tangerine, very well balanced and brown sugar. Nice sour!

On tap at the Bellís eccentric cafe. Aroma:A little bit of cherries, some sourness. Appearance:Reddish-brown, a little murky, very little head. Taste:Thereís a mild sour fruity tartness on the foretaste. The flavors dissipate quickly after the foretaste until it just lingers slightly on the aftertaste. One nice thing about this one is that the palate doesnít get used to the sourness, so every sip seems as tasty as the first. Palate:Light to medium body. Thereís a harsh acidic astringency that hits the back of the throat. Overall:This is a great flemish red. Itís a little subdued compared to some, but perhaps because of that very easy to drink.

Enjoyed as a taster at Bellís Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo, MI. Appearance an odd caramel / apple with virtually no head. Aroma of cherries and sourness, also a bit of that stinky cheese aroma that comes with the Belgian sours, odd but kinda nice. Taste is really sour, Iíve had some sour ones before but this one may be the most sour. Devours the taste buds, retains that cheese / sour cherry profile. Its kinda nice, somewhat enjoyable, definitely only for those already familiar with sour ales.

Michigan Brewerís Guild Summer Festival 2010. This is the last thing from this fest that I can actually decipher notes from. Bright funky aroma. Lactic tartness and a bit of light cherry fruitiness. Softly funky with a little bit of light earthiness. Really soft and fruity. Intensely funky. A touch of vineous character. Very tasty.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2015 Out of a bottle at the pub in KZoo after the brewery tour during RBSG 2010. Apple and cherry aroma, sour, light funk, dry something (I canít read my chicken scratch). Nice sour apple taste. Fresh apples at that. Raspberry, drying with good yeast, great tang, cherries - actually thereís lots of cherries. Drying. Light funky tangy finish.

Off orange pour small off white head w/ great lacing. Tart fruits reminds me of a brown ale taste is a bit hard to define but well blended full of subtlety. Avg palate w/ some stickiness. Nice bruin taste w/ a light earty sour note. A very nice well blended wild ale.

(draft @ Bellís Eccentric Cafe - Kalamazoo, MI) Deep copper pour with a very thin white head. Huge tart and sour funky aroma with some very mild fruit and malt notes. Mainly that tart and bitter. Flavor is a huge tart bomb in your mouth. Huge funky and sour notes with just the right amount of sweetness to take it away but it leaves that sour and tart feeling in the sides of your mouth. Phenomenal. Probably in the top 5 sours Iíve ever had.
