750ml. 2014. Appearance: dark brown with only the slightest hint of ruby. Almost completely opaque. Moderate khaki head. Aroma: Malty undertones, with red wine and sour cherry most prominent. Hints of apple and pear. Taste: Starts sweet and malty, quickly leading into sour cherry and apples. Vinous. Lactic acid bite, otherwise very clean. Bitterness is there to balance but definitely malt forward. Mouthfeel: Medium body with a high carbonation. Hint of alcohol warmth. Finish: Semi dry with some lingering tartness. Overall: World class Flanders Brown. Perfect balance of maltiness, fruity esters, and lactic tartness. Complex aroma and flavor.

Saeglopur (1113) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 18, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2015 375 ml bottle, 2014 printed on cork, from Ammersin 5, Vienna.
Very dark copper, brownish body, with a big, creamy, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of sweet barrel notes, sour cherries, sweet-sour berries, overripe fruits, wine, some leather.
Tastes of fresh, sour fruits, barrel, wine, ripe and dried fruits, smooth malts, some bread, leather.
Full, creamy, velvety mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes smooth, sour, quite dry, a bit salty, a bit sweet, fruity and with barrel notes.

Tasty. Classic example of a Flemish sour beer, greatly balanced and very smooth. Alcohol is completely hidden, drinks very nice. Overall not the best beer of this style I’ve had, a bit less sour than I prefer, but very comfortable nonetheless.

Color is a reddish-brown, with a beige head. Overwhelming aroma. Typical smell of a flemish brown beer but much intenser. Notes of red fruit and some maltiness in the background. Taste is a combination of sour and vinous details. The alcohol is present in the taste, but gives it an extra dimension. My favorite brown beer (so far).

Bottle at Mas Plenum stand at Vinocom, Zagreb. Pours dark brown with brownish head. Sourish fruity aroma. Fruit, berries, malt, not too sweet, pleasantly sour. Quite a good one and a pleasant surprise.
