Draft at monks cafe Philly. Deep dark red with tons of lacing. Aroma is sweet cream with a funk touch. The taste adds lactic tart notes and a slightly bitter finish, sweet candied sugar, and dark fruits as well. Very smooth but rich. Awesome.

Half pint at PNP Charleston. Called Monks Cafe. Dark brown with small crimson highlights, and small/medium beige head. Aroma is fairly rich cherries, medium body, medium carbonation, and thin small bubble lacing. Taste is slightly tart cherry and dryer finish. Easy to drink and pretty good.

Whoa not very impressed. Tastes like half ale, half lambic with neither one of them standing out. Meh.

Bottle. Dark ruby with a big off white head. Aroma is cranberry juice, cherry and light musk. Taste adds chocolate and lactic notes and an earthy note on the finish. Soft and thin mouthfeel with little carb and relatively quick finish. Slightly odd but really enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 The aroma is very sour and lactic with strong notes of cherry and more subtle hints of orange. The flavor is complex, at first a of bit creamy malts on the palate followed by a big tart lactic rush. Cherry features in a softer sour finish.

11.2 oz bottle. Thanks Haley! Pours a light brown in color, small head with moderate lacing. Aroma is funky yeast, sweet dark malts. Flavor is refreshing and tasty. I always prefer sour over sweet. The beer definitely has a sweet component, and finishes that way. Mouthfeel is moderately low carbonation, nice feel, sweet/sour finish (mostly sweet).

On tap at the Tap House Grill, Seattle under the alias ’Monks cafe flemish sour ale’. A lightly sour ale with notes of immature frutes, apples and berries. A bit too simple for a sour.

750 ml. bottle, named "Monk’s Cafe Flemish Sour Ale". Nice appearance, dark ruby red with a one finger beige head that lasts and leaves slight lacing. Aroma is vinous and tart, somewhat vinegary, with sour cherry notes. Medium sour (tart), light sweet, very dry and woody (oak) flavor. It seems a bit one dimensional and acidic but if you’re in the right mood it is very nice. A good summer brew, very unique and refreshing.
