Bottle. Copper body with very little head. Sweet with a sour finish. Very good Belgian beer for sour heads. Not being one, I was less enamored with it. Good sweet and sour balance. Just short of upper echelon.

This poured a lighter brown color with a biege head. Aroma was sweet cherries, some vinegar, and some cheesy malts. Flavor was moderately sour, but a little sweet, and some toasted oak notes and funk. Ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Acajou, col fin beige.
Arôme léger chêne laissant une fine aigreur boisée et fruité.
En bouche, le tout reste léger, le profile aigre - flamande rouge/brune, restant discret.Léger malt et un petit côté fruité rouge sure très agréable et uen pointe de sucré. Facile à boire, bonne approche du style pour les non-initiés.

On tap @ Bangers and Lace. Pours a clear amber with a light caramel brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice sour red fruit note with a bit of backing sweet grains. Flavor has a combination og sweet grains and sour red fruits. A hint too sweet.

O: a decent brew, easy drinking, good flavor, not very complex, worth trying

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at The Local Beer Bar in Eureka, CA Came in the glass a cleae mahogany color with a moderate off-white head and almost no lacing. The nose is sour cherry and raw earth. Medium in body. Lively in mouthfeel. he flavor comes right at you and while it is sour, it is really flavorful at the same time. The finish is long,dry and of course sour. This just is flat out delicious What a treat to find that on tap in a local establishment.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the bad apple...medium dark mahogany reddish brown in appearance and topped with a medium off-white to beige head... aroma contains woody cherry pits and skins with a light vinegar acidic profile... fluffy earthy cherry flavors in the flavor, muted sourness all around without adding much in terms of acidity to any degree. semi-lively mouthfeel but maintaining that earthy feel throughout.

Murky brown in color, Light nose with a soft sour cherry. The palate is classic sour/sweet with caramel notes. Long long lingering finish. Great value.

Cloudy brown with a thin off white head. Yeasty nose with a bit of red berry. Medium bodied with some malty components. This has some sour notes, but not as intense as cuvée des jacobins. Excellent finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is pretty vinous with a little caramel, apples and light sourness. Appearance is murky brown with fluffy bone head. Flavor matches the nose; there is a little caramel malt, but the vinous qualities rule out. The finish has a slightly lingering bitterness. Palate is bubbly and creamy. Not the best sour I’ve had, but a solid beer in my book.
