Pours a hazy brown. Oak and fruity aroma with a hint of funk. Moderate sourness is rounded by some sweeter malt and raisin qualities. Light body with just a bit of carbonation. A great sour.

SlackerMads (2226) - DENMARK - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle. Dark chestnut brown with a medium sized beige head. Sour nose; lemon, wood, light barnyard. Flavour is pretty nice. Oak, leather, balsamic, lemon, tobacco, earth, dark cherries, raspberries. Medium body, light sweet, heavy lactic sour. The sourness is too heavy for me and the finish is like lemon. So I like the way it tastes, but to me this is overly sour and not very drinkable.

BVery (8075) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle. Darker opaque amber maroon pour with a fairly quickly fading head. Awesome tart dark fruit / cherry all over this. Bright prickly on the tongue. Killer beer.

Mora2000 (6052) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of a lot of tart, dark fruit notes with some leather, light brown sugar and oak. The flavor is similar with the dark fruit and grape notes adding a nice amount of sourness. There are also a lot of heavy oak tannins. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Frank (3471) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Iím not a huge fan of this style but this one isnít bad. Itís 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. Thereís 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.
