harrisoni (13627) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2013
33cl bottle from Terre de Boissons. Very deep clear ruby colour with lasting beige head. Dry brown malt and some rich fruit on the aroma. There is a hint of perfumed sourness to it. It’s fine. Just a little artificial I feel. Sweetness from the malt, some sourness, quite fruity. The fruit is what, plums, like Victoria plums. It grew on me. I tend to like Flemish sours and I guess this falls into that frame. Bit too sweet maybe. To a non sour head this is probably quite sour, but as a true lambic fan, it could do with a bit more sourness, but it does have a sour and hop finish. The more I drink it and the finish in particular I do like. I do like a Flemish sour. Yes I do like it. Not a great beer, but one I’d drink in a bar again if it was on just cos it’s a tad quirky.
