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.

danielyabu (1235) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - JAN 26, 2014
average creamy offwhite head. good lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick dark reddish-brown body. aroma: dark bread, caramel, light yeasty, citrus orange lemon, red wine, vinegar, metal. if: moderate sweet. ff: moderate sweet very light acetic (vinegar); long duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic light astringent finish. Dulçor lembra malte e chá, saboroso. Toques metálicos durante todo o paladar surgem como defeito. Toques de vinho doce. O finalzinho traz toques de romã. Cerveja bem interessante fora os toques metálicos. Não tem o azedume intragável de outras representantes do estilo. Como percebido por Sibila Yabu, forte sabor de ameixa vermelha fresca no final. Presença ácida lembra os taninos de vinho tinto na boca. 150 s

Bottle. Hazy ruby brown color with a thick foamy off-white head. Aroma of cherry, berries and malt. Sweet and sour taste.

Ferris (4981) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle - Toasted malts, cherry, brown sugar, raisin and oak. Dark brown with a rich thick brown head. Oak, cherry, toasted malts, light sourness and finishes woody. The wood cuts the sweetness and that sourness is just about perfect for balance. Really nice.

ShivanDragon (1796) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2013
rood/bruin helder met schuimige kaki kraag
aroma van fruitig zuurtje, kersen, mout en bruine suiker
smaken: redelijk zoet, licht bitter, matig zuur, redelijk fruitig (rood fruit in de vorm van kersen en donker fruit in de vorm van pruim), klein beetje tannine, licht gemout, licht kruidig
medium body, glad van textuur, laag van co2, géén extreem fruitbier, mooi licht zurige onder toon, kersen en donkere fruiten maken het tot een mooi bier

Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a reddish brown colour with a minimal off-white head. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more sweet than bitter, a bit unbalanced. Overall, a nice beer.

I didn’t like it at all, the sour flavour doesn’t do it for me. It’s a well made beer, I’m just not a fan.
