LIVE RATE FROM T’KEIZERSHOF IN SCENIC BRUGGE BELGIUM!!! Pours a deep reddish brown/ cola color. The head starts big and off white, but dissipates to a small head and chills out that way for a while. The aroma is vinous, sweet, musty, and malty. The flavor is nicer, it’s easily the most sour Liefmans product I’ve tried yet. Although it is also a tad too sweet. Some malty chocolate notes lurk in the background along with some tart cherries. Basically though this is a 2 note sweet and sour beer, I know that there was a time I would have gone gaga over a beer like this one, and I still like it... But I’d love it to be much drier.

Draft. At Town Hall Tap. Dark reddish brown color with a light tan head. Light cherry note in the nose. Light mouthfeel with carbonation. Fruity with caramel notes. Not really sour all that much. Some apple flavors as well. Decent.

Hazy brown beer. Dry crisp palate. Fruity tangy beer with a splash of coca cola. Somewhat let down by a finish that manages to be both dry and wishy washy!

BlackHaddock (3598) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
Reviewed mid July 2010, on one of my random beer nights. 25cl bottle poured into a ’Forbidden Fruit’ chalice. The body was a deep, ruby red/brown colour. A tan/off white collar sat around the glass, what head did appear left within 10 seconds of the pour. The smell was a mix of old sour notes and a red berry sweetness. The taste followed on from the aroma, Cherry and Raspberry flavours to me, with more sourness than the smell. Certainly tart, but not a cheek sucking in special like some Belgian beers I could mention. I thought it on the fizzy side, which I believe is not normal in this style, but it added a new dimension to the tasting, which I enjoyed.

burg326 (3650) - Florida, USA - APR 16, 2012
On draft at the Brass Tap Sour Breakfast, poured a dark brown color, aromas of vinegar, oak, some lemony fruit, caramel, and a touch of funk. Flavors are the same but a slight cherry thrown in the mix, not as sour as expected from the aroma.

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2012
25cl bottle. Brunâtre/ambrée, col fin beige. Arôme surette, boisé note de malt/cara sucre. En bouche, sûre, léger fruité noir avec en retrait ce profile boisé aigre. Garde un palais un peu de renfermé. Palais est agréable sans être trop dans l’aigre/sûre, légère en fin de bouche avec un malt et profile sucré qui complètent le tout.

A decent brown ale but a bit too much vinegar and sweetness in this one to be at the very top of my list. Still worth seeking out.
