Received a bottle from both badnewbeers and Silphium, 2 brothers, 1 beer. Color is a rather clear dark red. Aroma is a weird forest and fruit mix, sweet and sugary. Taste is cherry-sugar-sweet. Not sour but acidic in the aftertaste. Syrupy body and a lowered carbonation.

A Mes rate:
Bottle at the big Chris O shinding. Amber no head to speak of. Sour certainly. Good beer. Just no. Love Flemish sours, definitely do not like this.
