3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (250ml). Trade with Boutip - thanks!. Best before 19 July 2007. Poured deep slightly hazy mahogany with a large rocky tan head. Strong aroma of yeast, sour red wine, fruit and some roast malt - quite well balanced and not over the top. Flavour is surprisingly sweet - raisins, apples, grapes, sour watery red wine, some roast, plenty of yeast, a hint of acidic wood resin for sure ... a little bottle metal on warming. Mouthfeel is slightly thin, dry and very astringent and somewhat acidic - a little flat, too. This is a pretty easy drinking flemish sour, perhaps a little simple - it would make a good introduction to the style without sending the novice screaming out the door.

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.

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.
