Infinitely complex in aroma and flavor with notes of maltiness and tartness throughout. An unsurpassed old brown with the richness and complexity of a vintage wine.

From bottle pours brown with a small amount of head. Nice tart flavor with a good finish.

Bottle... 2005 stamped on the cork. Just from the outside looking in you can see the ammount of floaties waiting to be unleashed into a nice glass. Pour is a dark brown, and a lot of the floaties escape into the glass. Right now they are rollicking around being pushed all over the place by the carbonation that is pouring up from the bottom. Head is smallish, especially considering all the carbonation. Aromas are complex but subtle: caramel malts, a promise of something a little tart... maybe like a tart cherry aroma, some brown sugar, some dried fruits, etc. Flavor is fantastic. Starts out with a brown sugar and dried fruit sweetness, but the sugars aren’t sticking around long and they are replaced by a tart (green apple/pie cherry) finish.

Sampled at the 1st annual Stone Sour Festival 2007. One of my favorite styles of sour. Brownish in color with sweet sour tastes.

375 mL, with too many floaties. I love yeast at the bottom, but not so much that I can only decant half the beer. Muddy brown with a full Belgian foam. Aromatically mediocre. It’s very applely, with a blend of granny smith and red apples. Also hints of banana bread. Definately more sweet than sour, and a beer that’s rumored to have gone through numerous changes the past decade. Maybe this was once a classic, but that was before my time. Now it’s just a sweet, drinkable, approachable brown ale. It has a unique taste, but is just too sweet and one dimensional.

scura sapore agrodolce forse piu tendente al dolce ma bilanciato buon corpo quasi vinoso

A wonderful combination of Flemish sour ale and malty brown ale making it an incredibly complex and easy to drink ale. Kept reminding me of Lindemans Peche lambic ale.

Lively carbonation and foamy head round out a brown ale pour that has a nose of flemish sour tartness and a fair amount of woody toast. Palate is dry and sparkling with the best of the sours. The flavor of this brew is really quite rich. The tartness and astringency of the sour ale are complemented by the maltiness of the brown ale with a refreshing nutty finish. This is an excellent pairing of styles and an explosively rich brew overall.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2007
Bottle@Plan B, Copenhagen. Small khaki head quickly fading into a small layer of foam. Clear dark burgund body. Fresh and fruity, almost tart acidicy to the nose. Surprisingly mellow and rounded taste, compared to the aroma: A gentle fruit-sweetness along with a mild lambik-like sourness in perfect balance. Good body. Dry and slight vinous mouthfeel. Nice fruity finish. A wonderful beer, a classic!

not much to look at, like prune juice. still it gives off a fruity punch, with a sharp bite. a keeper
