CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - MAR 27, 2009
25cl bottle at home, Classic visit: Dark cherry tinted mahogany brew with a nice tall tan head. Slowly fading. Wonderful sweet and sour nose with musty wood tones, cherry, malt, tart plums, sugar and lactic acid. First taste is almost lacking any sourness that you notice on the nose... but it comes and gains more power as time passes. Very nice wood notes come after the initial sweet malt, sugar and introductory sourness. Wood gets lightly tannic as it works its way through. Kept in check by cherries, dark fruit compote and sugar syrup. Lactic notes show up with the wood and grow stronger, but are always held back by the overall sweetness. Touch of chocolate and very low bitterness on the end. Upfront it feels sticky but then really thins out to a medium light mouthfeel. It seems to want to be even thinner but the wood notes fill it out. Nice beer with some great accents, but it feels a bit too restrained.

Bottle. Deep dark brown colour with a medium rather short off-white head. Mild sour malty aroma with dark fruits. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a soft sweetness with dark malts, dark fruits and a pleasant not so profound sourness.
