11.2 fl oz bottle. Clear mahogany with fine beige head. Delicate sour nose with some malt shining through. Also slight aromas of bbq meat. A little salty. Quite a beer already! Flavor kind of disappoints after the nose - it’s still good, but not great. Classic sour flavors with just a little funk. Just a little thin and watery. Light body. Very quick and dry finish - crisp and refreshing.

Fra fat på Brasserie Erasmus i Brugge 4 Mai 11. Delt med Rune. Mørkebrun. Svakt syrlig aroma. Lavt skum. Gjennomgående lett syrlig smak med innslag av frukt. En “geuze-light”. Lett-drikkelig.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark reddish-brown with a fine-grained ecru head. (Ooh. I got to use the word ecru.) Nose is sweet and complex -- it puts me in mind of an aged Riesling with a touch more toast. Very nice. Sour up front, then moving into a slight sweetness before closing bitter and sour again. Finish is long and citrusy. I really like this beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of caramel, sour cherries, and other dark fruits. Pours an ugly red/brown with a highly carbonated and frothy head. Tastes of tart cherry but quickly becomes malty and pleasant. Very enjoyable balance of Belgian tastes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark murky chestnut brown; medium khaki head. Tart fruity slightly buggy aroma. Very nice Flemish sour. Not nearly as intense as the Cuvee des Jacobins, more approachable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sour dominates this Flanders Brown for me. Flat head, light bitterness and sour aftertaste. Not exactly my favorite style and this may be a basic Sour Ale recipe.

Bottle poured into draft. Bought this on a whim and a prayer that it would be a half way decent sour but it fell short. Not a too much going on in the aroma depart, nor the flavor. Slightly tart with hints of fruit but nothing that great.

Tap. Brown ruby pour with a clingy white head. Aroma of orange and apple. Medium to lighter palate with very soft carbonation. Taste is apple without the tart element. Maybe a touch bland but decent.

Pours cloudy dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, biscuit and vinegar. Taste is light to medium sweet and light sour. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
