UPDATED: APR 19, 2009 Bottled. Dark reddish-brown with a medium beige head. Not 100% clear. Fruity and sour aroma, with a flavor that has wood, acidity and fruitiness. Green apples kind of acidity. Full, astringent body, but more commercial than Rodenbach Grand Cru. Rating: 6-4-6-4-13-3.3. (060210)
Bottle, 25cl. It pours a reddish brown body, hazy with lots of floating chunck. Huge, big-bubbled, beige head and wonderful lacings. Berry-ish, cellary aroma with some vinegar and sugar. Full-bodied, quite effervescent and astringent mouthfeel with raspberry vinegar and some cellar and lemon. Some bitterness in the far back. Sugars are present too, but very moderate. Lemony, vinegary finish that lasts. A very refreshing and quenching beer that doesn’t get too extreme in any way.(090419)

Clear Brownish red, like iced tea, with a thick beige head. Spicy aroma, with notes of cinnamon, and some savory aroma I can’t quite place. Walnuts, too, maybe? Very drinkable - subtly sour, with hints of cherry, oak, red wine and a crisp, tart aftertaste. Bought at Leaf & Ale, Knoxville.

Large frothy off-white head with a clear caramel colored body. Sweet yet somewhat earthy aroma. Seet flavor that finishes lightly sour.

A very dark red body with a large ivroy head. Good vinegar aromas combined with some fruits. Excellent tartness in the back of the mouth and good plum endings. Overall, a very enjoyable Flemish Sour.

Bottle: Dark cherry oak color with a moderate dry bone colored head. Earthy cherries, along with a touch of yeast dominate the aromas. Thin red wine nose, with just a hint of acidity notes. As it warms some mild malts come out. Sweetness envelops the mouth with the first sip, not a sugar laden sweetness, but a dry, stick a powered sugar donut in the mouth at once type of sweetness. From there a pastry dough flavor continues leading to a light acidic finish. Has some flavors of an old past prime wine. Thing grabs my attention with this one. The aroma was pleasant and complex enough, but the flavors never came together. Seems like an amber with a few drops of red wine vinegar. Ok, really good red wine vinegar, but you get my point.

Draught@Monks. Rather sour nose and sour flavor (wow, insightful of me.) But, it’s not overpowering. Thought I wasn’t going to appreciate this, but found it quite pleasant. Manageably sour. A little bit of appley pucker in there, richer flavor than apple though. Smooth, deep red brown. Nice long finish. A Lasting fine coating of a head. Hints of tast fruit. Red wine vinegary finish. Not an everyday drink for me, and somewhat one dimensional, but a pleasant surprise nonetheless.

POured with a murky brown and red boy. The aroma had tart apples along with balsamic vinegar. Fairly one dimensional in the aroma. The taste had lemons, balsamic vinegar and some leather. There is also a little dry hay in the finish. A nice light body made this refreshing.
