A little pricey - but, as it turns out, quite worth it. The beer pours a dark reddish brown with an ample head. The aroma is sour but not unpleasant. The taste has a subtle fruitiness that sits well on the palate. A very enjoyable beer.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 Slightly tart with a strong malt presence. Has a strange artificial sweetener flavor that isn’t very pleasant. Has hints of cherry, sour apple, and metal.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep dark auburn red with a big pillow head. Aromas of light cherry, metal, sour apple, grain, and grass. Flavors of light tart cherry, light oak, slight sour apple, grain and grass. Light sweetness, lightly to medium tart, refreshing, and clean finish. Leaves a grapelike impression through the nose after the finish. Strangely cool but could just be a combo from the peanut butter honey sandwich I ate with it?

Had bottled as Monk’s Cafe Flemish Sour Red Ale. Sticky sweet, tart juicy taste, a bit like a far less fizzy black cherry soda. Smell of sour cherry, lollipop.

This one is not that sour, just strange. I was really looking for that vinegar character but didn’t get it. Pours brown with a head with nonuniform bubbles. This one smells of basement aromas, leather, leaves, with a woody note. It also has a slight element of cherry. Taste is faint cherry and only slightly lactic that gives it an uneasy feeling (almost like something is wrong). Finish is not really sour but strange and smooth. Just couldn’t get into this one.

It has a huge head. It had a light aroma. It is a basic tart taste with some malt. I found it very boring. Not a bad taste but really nothing special.
