3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Brown color with reddish hues and no head to speak of. Aroma of barnyard, oak barrels, ripe apples, and a bit of yeast. Delightful flavors of apples, vinegar, wood, tartness combine for a solidly classic Flemish sour. Lots of carbonation and acidity are also present but not too much. This is up there with the Dutchess!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Brasserie V. Deep burgundy-brown, stained glass look. Massive steady beige-red head. Intense funky sour cherry aroma, some lemony citrus. Sour citrus flavors, but also a soft, delicate malt body. Excellent stuff, world class all the way. Twangy red raspberry, cherry flavor, lots of sour depth. Mouth puckering, some lactic vanilla tones as well. The lactic sourness sticks with you. Phenomenal.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a deep cherry color with a medium white head. A big aggressive nose of fruit, woody and sourness. The flavor is a solid Flemish sour with brown malts, tart cherries, some yeasty dryness, a bit of sawdust bite in the finish. Really good. Has that big malt base to balance out the sourness, and it drinks quite well. Excellent.
