3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice sour ale from one of the globe’s most adventurous brewers. Inconsistent they may be, but never dull. Cloudy bronze with a generous head. Inviting aroma of sour cherries, pineapple, brett and wheat-sheaf. Fizzy palate, thin to medium body. Big burst of flavour up-front but it falls away a little in the mid-palate. Fairly sweet but balanced by some mouth-watering fruity acids. Spicy finish and some alcoholic warmth. Perhaps a bit too high in alcohol for the style but overall a very decent package. Not a million miles from Orval with its herbal overtones. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 14/3/18)

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 From tap at Cardinal. Copper. Receding, off-white head. Aroma of lambic and sour berries. A bit waterish. Decent bitterness in aftertaste, untypical if a lambic.

Tap at RJ. Aroma bubblegum, brett, alcohol, comes right out of the glass. Clear deep copper colour. Soft head, moderate duration. Taste is really funky. Complex, a lot of features. Funky sourness. Moderate bitterness. Flowery, spicy, fruity. Really well rounded, seems simple at first glance, but I keep finding layers.

Shared with Zach, tasted blindly and nailed it, a Belgian Sour, pours an unfiltered muddy brown color with a java head. Nose is tart with mild Brett. Taste is yeasty and offset in a sour tart background, a different mix than usual. Finish is on yeasty sour tart notes as well, different ! Quaff Score 7 / 10
