4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On the label it states that the beer is a blend of young and old beer to make this beer, mildly sour. IMO this beer is quite sour! more than mild. Drinking this one on a cold blustery winter evening, might be more enjoyable during a warm summer day. Aroma is a sweet floral with slight warm fresh bread. The appearance is fairly dark for how light the palate is on this one. The head is minimal and doesn’t coat class very much. The flavor is again very sour and finishes with a nice taste of raw dough. The body is quite light compared to how dark this one is. Slight carbonation with a somewhat long finish. I haven’t tried this style in a long time so I can’t compare it, but i’m interested to see what else there is in this style.

What are flemish people called? Flems? Huh... Idk.... But whatever, they make good beer. Not one of those warhead beers that make your teeth feel funny, but like....... Beer.... There’s a lot of stuff going on. Suffice it to say I am a fan.

Monk’s Cafe Flemish sour red ale bottle, served in snifter. Very pretty dark ruby color, nice sour nose to it. Tart cherry flavor and medium body. Really nice lingering sour finish. There are a lot of way pricey sour ales out there that are not as enjoyable as this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours murky and opaque amber brown with one finger of light tan head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, spotty lacing. (4/5) Nose is red fruit, raisins, vinegar, woody and vinous notes. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate tart. (7/10) Medium body, moderate to low carbonation, off-dry tart finish. (4/5)
A very mild sour / oude bruin. Aromas of dark, slightly boozy fruit reminiscent of a quadrupel, but with a mildly tart, cidery flavour. Very drinkable and quite refreshing. (15/20)

Dark red with a spidery lacing. Polished oak, cherries, a pleasant turpentine smell (let me huff that), caramel. Slightly tart, woody, mouth filling umami, acidic and citrusy, raisins. Lots going on here, not too sour to scare me away. Would buy again

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice size tan, rocky head. Color is reddish brown and a little cloudy. Good head retention and big patches of frothy lace. Tart smell of cherries, sour like apple cider vinegar, highlights of brown sugar and a faint wet dog quality. It has a light body and somewhat tart, but finishes dry. Tastes sweet, sour and quite tart with qualities of cherries, brown malts, cherry cider, faint vinegar, apple cider, fruity esters, and a faint nuttiness in the finish. I used to think this beer was so vinegar-like, but now I really dig it. Crazy how tastes change.
