Dark caramel color, sour smell that is slightly off from the typical Brett character. Excellent palate, with incredible smooth finish. Light tasting up front that stays even throughout. Good, but lesser option for the style.

Tap at Bulldog in downtown Minneapolis. Kind of a sweet vinegar nose, taste isn’t overly sour - slightly, but more sweet than anything. Middle of the road.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from the bottle, on 22/02/2013.
Pours muddy dark brown, with amazing head, with excellent retention.
Aroma is full of tart berries, with a hint of candies, pleasantly spicy in the end.
Taste is moderately tart upfront, with lovely fruity overtones, then a bid bready and grainy.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, low-med carb, with a good warming finish.
Aftertaste is a nice mix of tartness and candy sweetness.
After several sips get a feeling that it's too sweet though.
Worth to try.

Tap at Dexters. Unfiltered brown with a patchy off-white head. Kind of an odd aroma, some sour brown notes but mostly an odd neutral chalkiness..probably the overly "clean" lines. Very thin bodied, quite unimpressive for the style. Mellowed lactic sourness, thin brown malt tones. Watery, very subtle. Pretty much like you put Rodenbach through a flavor filter. Has got to be the most plain, pedestrian example of the style out there. Develops a pinch more depth as it warms.
