A chip of the old block. A touch darker and drier than his old man, Son of Wout is a Belgian-style ale of slight sourness and medium strength. Brewed with organic pale and Munich malts, with Cara-Vienne and Biscuit, bittered with UK Fuggles and soured with lactobacillus, Son of Wout carries on the tradition of multiple yeasts and micro-organisms.

Wrote this note down as just Wout, but I’m guessing this is it. Slightly hazy yellow, active head with little staying power. Great aromatic character, it’s like a classic perfumy Belgian golden, minus the sharp floral pollen. Honey, gentle hops, with a consistently soured on the edges, delicate and complex for sour fans, gentle enough to convert.

Very clear auburn color with a thin head coating. Aroma of heavy spices, cinnamon, somewhat funky paprika perhaps. taste is slightly sweet.

The taste of this one was more complex than its slightly disappointing smell, which was of malts, sugars and vanilla. The taste included a slight orange flavor, not really bitter but a bit of a spicy taste.

Tap@Brewpub. Licorice, jasmine and milky aroma. Light hazy, amber colour, yellowish head, fair lace. Sweet, fruity, light sourness, light bitter. Sticky mouth feel. Bit too sweet, pretty boring.

Mildly hazy with a thick cream head--very creamy. Nice, lively carbonation. Pleasant, refined woody sourness in the nose, along with a prick of yeast. Creamy body, with an enjoyable degree of refined yeastiness. Yeasty and woody sourness rounding out the flavor profile. A well-crafted Belgian ale, that showcases a good yeast character that is welcomely complicated by pinches of wood and sourness. Moderately complex and balanced.

Aroma is very odd. Notes of tart lacto yogurt kind of thing along with spicy Belgian yeast and some sweet fruity notes. The odd thing is that this sounds good on paper, but it didn’t actually work. In a way it smelled like funky feet and sweet Belgian yeast. Not all that good. Poured orange with a thin non lasting head. Somewhat sweet and fruity with lactic tartness underneath. Thin and with a somewhat unpleasant mouth feel. I expected a lot more from this one, but I guess it is what it is. Oh well.
