3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Poured a cloudy brown color with a mostly lasting frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour tart cherry, fruit and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet&sour dark fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sour dark fruit finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.

Tap at the Repub. From notes. Pour is a very slightly hazy red brown, with just a ring of head that fades almost instantly and leaves no lacing. Aroma is light lactic notes, a fair bit of nutty and woody character, a slight amount of raisin malt. Taste is similar, with just enough tartness to let you know its there, as well as a nice biscuit and cracker finish that really works well. Could drink a lot of this.

On tap at Hasselt Beer Festival, Hasselt, Limburg, Belgium 12.11.11 in company of Loz, Jackie, Simon and David. Pours a light chestnut colour with a small rim of bubbles. The aroma reminded me of the De Dolle Orbier Special Reserva, quite lovely nose. Fruity, tangy and with a great sourness in the mouth, some dark fruits, ossibly summer fruits such as bitter cherries, there is wet wood and the sourness rules supreme but it is a lovely sourness. Possibly my favourite of the day. . A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0
