tom10101 (2746) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Dark amber with a small beige head and some lacing. Aroma is of caramel, light red fruits, hints of roasted malt and metallic notes. Taste is also of caramel, roasted notes, hints of red fruits and light sweetness. Medium body. Moderate/medium carbonation. Watery finish. Bleh. Not really sour, no complexity at all and not enjoyable. At least, it allowed the next beer a little more time in the fridge.

Bottle, 19/04/14, BBE 26/02/15. Pours a dark reddish brown with a decent, beige-colored head. Aroma is somewhat soda-like, apple, pear, a touch of cherry, a dab of vinegary sourness. Taste is soda-like sweetness, some sour notes, apple and pear, light vinegar and cherry show up again. Too sweet. Light and fairly strong carbonation.

Belgian redbrown, lightly bitter taste with a sweet edge, without the usual sour aftertaste. All in all a bit flat.

Mi dispiace, sono pignolo. Le sour brown ale si chiamano così proprio perchè il sour dev’essere accentuato per bene! Qui invece la componente acido-acetica è effimera e viene drasticamente scavalcata dalla componente più dolciastra, con qualche sfumatura fruttata. Si beve volentieri, ma è decisamente sotto la media di questo stile.
