Poured from a botetle into a pint glass. Appearance is a dark, slightly mrky brown with a thin head of beige foam. In the aroma is a pleasant green apple tartness with a nice dark candied fruit in the background. In the taste its primarily a pleasant sourness with a nice balance of dark malt sweetness.

Red brownish, small tan head.
Fruity but acidic aroma.
The taste was in balance as well. Some sweets but sour for sure! A little bitter in the finish.

Red tinted caramel brown color. Small tan head that leaves a little lacing, and sticks around for some time. A malty, acetic aroma. Very tart, slightly malty, and a little thin. A roasted character seems to stick around. Not bad, a little too tart to drink in quantity. But refreshing.

Nice pour but the head doesn’t last long like most sours. Sour taste is followed up by a well balanced sweet brown caramel flavor. Not notably sour but a good wild brew.

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.

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.

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.
