Bottle, shared with Parksy at the brewery. Hazy medium reddish brown, average tan head. Caramel and brown bread, red wine vinegar, dry finish. Appropriately malty, moderately sour, very enjoyable.

500ml bottle. Cherry aroma with lactic sour notes. Pours ruby-amber colored with a thin, but retentive, tan head and good lacing. Starts with good cherry and plum sweet flavors with a slick, lively mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with lactic sour notes balancing out the sweetness of the fruit nicely. Yet another solid sour in this series.

Brown in color with an off-white head. Lactic tart aroma. Quite accurate to the stile; tart with a light brown malty undertone. Quite tart going down.
Notes: GABF ’13

Draft. From notes. Can’t remember where I had it, working on a 3+ month backlog. Loads of fruity notes. Very sour. Damn good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Tasting notes from 11/2011 when I tried this on tap at the Normal brewpub. Reddish amber pour with an average looking off-white head. Sour fruit aroma mostly suggests cherry and plum. Taste is of sour cherry, light vanilla, rhubarb and funk. Dry, sparkling champagne notes come in in the aftertaste too. Acidic sour character is just right... not too overwhelming.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap, pours a dark amber brown with a thin egg shelled head, the aroma was really tart with a good amount of cherries and vinegar, the flavor has a woody front end with the fruit and cherries in the finish, a dryness and tartness in the finish really rounds it out nicely, good carbonation, would like to have this one again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
GABF 2013. Pours a hazy reddish orange appearance with a tan head. Tangy, vinegar, black cherry, raspberry, oaky aroma. Pretty fucken sour, dark berry, cherry, acetic flavor that finishes again quite sour. Pretty good for what it is but a bit too strong for me to really enjoy it.

Powerfully sour flanders ale, reminds me of monk’s cafe a bit with its sweetness but it isn’t as sweet as MC so it is good.

You have to like sours to like this beer. This is powerful and uncompromising, full or brettiness with a tangy sweet flavor, medium body, and enticing appearance. Tried with Nick at the brewery in Normal in 2012.
