Found this beer sold under the Monk’s Cate Sour Flemish Ale name. Reddish color with almost no head. Very sour fruity aroma reminding me of a Spanish fermented aged apple cider. The flavor is very sharp and acidy which will turn off those who don’t expect it. Appreciating a balsamic vinegar flavor in a beer requires no pre-conceived idea of what beer "should" taste like. Not a beer for everyone nor one I would drink every day, but very interesting.

Sour cherry aroma evident in the body with a bit of clove. Pretty simple sour ale, but non-offensive.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at HopCat in Ann Arbor. In prep for Rare Day tomorrow. Labeled an oud bruin, I'm not sure. The pour is a dark brown with hints of ruby and a nice egg shell colored film of head with no lace. The aroma is more funky than tart. It's weird. There is a strange odor to this because there is nothing that takes precedence. There is a funkiness to it that I hope works out. The flavor is strange. Hoppy and funky with no real sourness to it. It's got a little yeastiness and some hints at a tart, but it's plain and lacking. There is a light brown character to it. The mouth feel is thin and slick. It's not well carbonated and carries a lingering maltiness. Not very good from an oud bruin status.

Bottle shared thanks to kermis, let’s get him to 8k tasting. Very dark reddish brown, big fluffy beige head. Cardboard, few days old coffee, rotten red fruits, soft balsamico. So far so mediocre, finish has ash, rotten cardboard, earth, gasoline. Light sweet and sour with nasty bitter finish.
Over medium bodied with soft velvety feel. Nasty.

Pours a reddish brown from a bottle, tan head with lots of lacing. Aroma of grapes, sour apple, a bit of barnyard. Flavor is big on grapes, some brett, then with a flash of toasted bread towards the end. Somewhat sour, not heavy not light. Somewhat thin, which didn’t seem to go well, the beer seemed to want to be heavier than it was. Very good beer.
