OH SO GOOD, great super sour aroma tartness and oak character. Flavor of sour apple prune and a great blue cheese background with tartness to round out brew. Finishes fairly dry, leavin you wanting more of this complex brew

From a tap. Pours a dark amber red with a Coca-Cola tan head which dissipates quickly. Not much lacing left on the glass. Dark fruits, brown sugar and some funk comes through on the aroma. Taste is slightly sweet, some tartness, leather, dark fruits, and sour apples. The sourness stays on the palate for some time, not overpowering. Great beer!

Great beer, but I was expecting a little more. For the price tag and the hipe, I struggle to rate this much higher than the standard Rodenbach. Still a great beer worth hunting down, but given the option I’d have a Rodenbach grand cru, or pretty much any other Belgian oud brune. In a vertical tasting the new Belgium offering is harsher, and a little more sour. Overall a little thin and less balanced than the Rodenbach.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ruby brown murky pour with little beige head. Funky strong scent, port wine but extra tart, pert sour, lighter fruits. Soft carbonation, extreme sour mouthfeel, almost gritty finish it’s so dry and sour. Bright sour apple and berry tart, a bit of chardonnay, also some nutty brown ale flavor with a bit of cocoa. Really great in your face sour but probably would add complexity with aging (more creaminess, deeper flavor palate).

I am not really into sours and this was the first I believe. Very sour and tart. Different and unique beer for sure. I’ll have to try a few more.
