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.

Bottle at Chris_o Shindig. Amber, lasting beige. Slightly fusty aroma. Putty aroma from Jbrus. Odd bizarre, not terrible, but for me it doesnít quite work.

Bottle@chris_o. Putty aroma with raisin and port. Dark amber color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, some sourness but more fruity than lactic. Raisins and a hint of licorice in the finish. Light sticky and soft. Not was I was expecting but not bad.
