Didn’t like this one. Pours slightly reddish brown with some light brown big bubbles. Aroma is light, though I can smell the tartness to come. Sour flavors ruin what could be nice notes of sweet berries. This was close to the drain.

330ml bottle. Red-brown beer with a small but stable off-white head. Nose is sweet caramel malts with a light woody red wine vinegar presence. Taste is sweet toasty malts with a mild sour tartness that dissipates the further down the glass you get. It is sweeter than Rodenbach’s Flemish red ales. Medium bodied with a flattish carbonation. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Part of the Petrus Belgian Sour Power 6-Pack - $22.99 at Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a dark brown body with a full charge of khaki-colored froth. Modest lacing.
Smell: Lightly sweetish, lightly tart-scented nose with touches of chocolaty, caramelly maltiness paired with an acetic, vinous, cherry-like quality that melds and meshes in my mind to be described as ’purple’ flavoring.
Taste: Brown maltiness hinting softly of chocolate, sweetish caramel and toast giving way to encroaching earthy woodsy tones and a plum wine, lightly balsamic, cherryesque accent. Relatively easy-going, mellow acidity. Mildly sour and dry on the fairly clean finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Slight tongue-coating action present.
Overall: Not particularly displeasing, just a little ho-hum and while though a different beer, .

Draft sample at the Thirsty Monk Pub & Brewery in Asheville, NC; deep reddish-brown color with minimal tan head. Aroma notes of sour malt, faint cherries, some sugar and tad oak. Taste adds some darker notes of caramel and dark fruits. Light-medium body, low carbonation, soft with light tanic-sweet finish. Nice enough lighter sour ale.

The colour is red/brown, with a beige head. There are no outspoken or extraordinary flavors. There is a slight sourness that is well-balanced with the bitterness. Overall it’s not bad, but the taste is a bit plain for me.

Deep bronze pour, tan head, little lace. Nose is Belgian yeast, on the wild side. Sour. Middle is...flat; slightly watery medium roasted malt, weak sweet tart flavor lurking. Finish is bittersweet. Not bad, just expected more
