3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light pear cherry minty aroma,you can smell the tartness in there,aroma takes on a cherry sucker flavor, in the taste you get the tartness and sourness you expect, sour cherry skins and vanilla dominating, flavor disappears very quickly and leaves you with only the sour bacteria on your tongue a wonderful early evening taster

This Flemish sour ale is in my opinion not the best in its kind. It has a beautifully dark red body, with a nice white pearly head. It tasted the typical sourness, but I missed a bit the finish, which was too empty for a flemish sour ale.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours beautifully, with a dark, red body and large head. Has a lovely, bitter smell, almost like sake!! The taste is not a delicious as expected. A tad bitter, with a sweetish finish, although nothing truly remarkable

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at The White Horse on Parsons Green (London), a cloudy brown with a filmy head. A warming malt aroma with touches of yeast. A very rich and sweet malty palate. Full bodied and smooth, but a little carbonation that works well. Fruity flavour with hints of chocolate.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours beautiful deep red. Nose and flavor has a lot of dates, plum and raisins. Especially rich on dates. Very sour, has almost a citric and cider like sourness to it. Not familiar with this kind of beers (didn’t even know of them), but this was a nice curiousity.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brownish with a small off white head, almost tannish. Sticky spots of lace. Sour aroma of grapes and malts. Some caramel notes. The flavor is tart and a touch dry. The sourness flows into cherries and again some malts. Body is crisp and the finish is a touch jaw clenchingly tart.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a dark copper brown scotch color with thin head and decent lacing. The nose is ripe and fruity with some oxidized caramel malt, light balsamic vinegar (not the sour part) and cherry notes. The flavor is balanced with a tart and snappy sweet impact with a smooth malty creame mouthfeel. Finish is a bit metallic. Overall it’s not quite that memorable, but it’s still a tasty beer.
