this was my intro to the flemish sour style. I didnt do much research on the beer before trying it, and man i weas thrown back by the sourness. Its tame compared to other sour beers, but its nice, and subtle. You can still get alot fo the malt, and a tad of the hops, and the balance is really nice.

This beer is balanced and fine overall, but there is nothing of interest. There are vague hints of good Flemish sours--some sour apple. A little bitterness, a little wood. I can’t say I see what the point is.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Liars Club. Has a reddish brown color with lots of carbonation. Weird aroma of heavy plum, caramel, oak, pear and cherries. Initial flavor is extremely sweet and malty with a nose of more caramel and plum. Starts to fade very quickly with the sour acidic finish with a yeasty brettanomyces undertone. Reminded me of drinking Lemon Coca-Cola. Not that great of a brew, but very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Ruby brown, nice head and lacing. Nose of some cherry, wood and nice tart fruit and sweet, yet musky malt notes. The flavor is a bit thin but has a semi tart plum skin note and semisweet malt. The finish is lacking, just find of falls apart. Thin, quick end.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz Bottle, Nose of mild tartness, caramel, and dark fruit; walnut with a medium beige head; flavor is peppery spices, minor tartness, woodiness, and caramel. Decent but not near as good as the Struise Earthmonk I had yesterday. Not very tart or funky!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured brown with a white thin head. The aroma was sweet malt and fruit of some type. The flavor was very complex it was sweet maly at first but quickly finished almost wine grape like.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is sour and sharp in an arresting way. Pours deep, slightly muddy brown with no discernable lasting head. The flavour is complex and refreshing with notes of sherbet balanced by notes of honey: the whole sitting with some watermelon and a hint of kiwifruit. Starts odd, finishes very well indeed.

Bottle. Pours copper brown with a small, quickly diminishing beige head. Aroma is mild sour apple with some earthy notes. Flavor is initially tart and acidic with sweet caramel toffe notes coming in quickly before a lightly soured fruit finish. Very drinkable.
