3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’m not a huge fan of this style but this one isn’t bad. It’s cloudy red brown in the glass w/ a foamy head. It has a tart cherry nose which is vibrant and bright. Its tart and just a little sweet, maybe a touch on the heavy side. There’s some toasty malt to play of the fruity acidity and works pretty well. This is medium bodied w/ medium carbonation, decently drinkable. Definitely, fans of this style should check this out.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear dark ruby color with a small white head. A big fresh fruity cherry oak nose. The flavor is oak, more sweet cherries, sour lactic notes, sharp at times, sawdust. Quite nice. Lively palate. Quite sour, more than some of the traditional Flemish red/browns.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draught at the brewery, this pours clear brownish-prune into the glass with a light soapy head that leaves trace suds lacing. The nose is of unripened berries and stone fruit. Under-ripened cherries, blackberries and cranberries hit a lingering sour finish. The palate is extremely complex, lively and juicy, and makes for a hugely successful wild sour noir!
