A - moderately bready with a touch of sour fruit. A - dark brownish red in color. No appreciable head T - very mild tartness. not nearly as sour/tart as I anticipated. P - for a brown this beer had less body than I expected. finished pretty cleanly for a sour ale O - not a bad beer just not as tart as I prefer. If youre not looking for super tart beer this would fit the bill nicely.

Pours red brown with small light brown head. Aroma is bread, nuts, citrus, dough, port, burnt paper. Taste is medium to heaby sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour. Light body, oily feel, average carbonation. Not very nice.

Beersiveknown (4200) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle with Belgian Family Brewers at Lindemans
not overly sour, sherbetty, woody, lactose sweetness, high carbonation, citrussy, corn notes, harsh, too much young sweet brown ale, insufficient lambic for balance.

RexTalionis (3157) - FINLAND - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle. Mahogny ruby, small off-white head. Berries and lots of artificial notes in aroma. Not much difference in taste either. Quite horrible brew to spoil a good style.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3429) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2015
On cask, Tasting Set at La Becasse. Bourgogne 5% lambic, brown beer mixed and aged in oak, who knew? A nice looking deep brown with a sweet caramel brown sugar aroma. Med-light bodied with a fairly full smooth mouthfeel. The taste is malty caramel fudge with a bit of tartness around the edges. Easy to drink brown. Alright but the Doux is the best, if I ever get back here Ill get the half liter of that for 5 or hell the liter. Good stuff.

ctipping (353) - Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2015
12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Putrid brown liquid that pours with little head and no lacing. It just does not look appetizing. Smells more promising. Sweet caramel and a light cherry acidity. Tastes of cherries and some oak. The tartness is barely strong enough to overcome the sweetness in the middle. Not a bad flavor throughout. The failure is in the finish. The beer thins out and tastes like a sickly sugar water. Ugh. Light body. High carbonation. Just kinda unpleasant in the finish. Not something Id drink again.

Liquid has red shine, small head. Fruity aroma, but light. Light body, little carbonation. Taste is sweet, but light.
