Wow, this held up pretty well for a few years! Lost it bite as a Flemish sour, but still really good. Aroma brings dominant fruity cherries, real smooth on the palate, so pleasant. Flavor brings light tart yeast and some cherry non sweet flavors at the end. Carbonation is right on, bringing a big pop with the cork!

Flavor is quite mild upfront. A hint of cherry and barrel, and a somewhat bready, somewhat spicy yet slightly biscuity yeast backbone. Finish is a hair more tart with sour cherry and an added splash of vinegar showing through and spicy as well. Somewhat dry. Not much lingers but a hint of tartness and a hint of biscuit.

Bottle from Turtle Creek Wine & Spirits in Winder, GA. Stored for a couple of years. Sour apples, sour cherries, very fresh and lively in the nose. Dirty brown, with little head. Quite a sour initial hit / slight fumes in mid, with more palate-scouring sourness / finished just bit fizzy and astringent, leaves the tongue clean. Thin-medium body. Pretty damn good. All the fruit is there, soured up, puckering and refreshing. Not too big of an acid attack. I like it.

750ml bottle $14. I like Ommegang beers but sometimes I don’t like springing for the more expensive offerings, this was an exception. Dark red-brown color, looks a little oily on top. Smells like a sour oud bruin, not bad. The taste is cherries, sour, good but it actually made me think about how much I like DeProef’s Zoetzuur and how much better of a beer that is for a dollar or two less. now I have to find some Zoetzuur, thanks a lot Ommegang!
