3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep amber/copper with an off-white head. The aroma has lots of sugary sweetness, some underlying lambic sourness, light caramel and light brown sugar. Medium slick sticky body with lots of flowing sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with almost a toastiness to the malt, good amount of sugary syrup, some spice and a hint of sharp lambic hiding below. The finish gets a bit on the medicinal side. Okay beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice light brown, weak head. Nose has dark cherries, plums, caramel and a nice lactic funk. Taste has some funk and sourness to it but is well balanced by the sweet, fruity malts. Reminds me of a Flanders sour. Medium body is well carbonated. Drinks quite well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sour caramel and dusty nose. Very slight haze, warm orangey brown color, smallish head. Cola flavored gummies sweetness, orange pith bitterness, slight sour undertone. Lighter carbonation, somewhat syrupy body, finish is sweet, almost cloying, slight sour tang, maybe more tart? Never had the style, a little too sweet for my tastes, but interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a light amber with an off-white head. Nose is quite sweet with some sourness, slight yeast and light malt. Taste is very sweet with some caramel, apple cider, and a growing though moderate sourness. Lingering sweet finish with some apple, wood, and slight sourness. Nice dessert beer, although the sweetness is enough that itís hard to drink a whole bottle of this. It would be great to share amongst 3 or 4 people with dessert.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a reddish copper color with a very slight head. The smell is pretty interesting; tart but sweet fruits as well. The taste comes as quite a surprise. Brett funk flavors up front that quickly transitions to a very sweet fruit flavor almost like maraschino cherries. Light mouthfeel. An interesting beer and style. Too sweet for me but I could see how this could be a good after dinner sipper or for people that like sweet cocktails. Would love to try the Cantillon version to see if it is as sweet.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz. corked and capped bottle served in a Tank 7 tulip. Bottle conditioned. Poured a dark copper with a finger of off white head. Fruity aroma with some dark sugar. On the sweet side. More fruit, cherries. Light bodied with plenty of carbonation. As it warmed, I got a hint of something like vomit in the aroma, which obviously was not pleasant. Beer is very drinkable none the less. Definitely on the sweet side. Would make a good dessert on its own.
