3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mahogany red with a nice head. The carbonations is prickly. The aroma is slightly sour with notes of caramel. The flavour also is slightly sour (not quite typical though). It’s refreshing with notes of caramel and fruit, and it’s a smooth, pleasant and very charming a day on the terrace. I actually liked it a lot, even if I would have preferred more sourness..

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma was tart with a strong acidity and an oak presence. The aroma was earthy and had hints of estery cherry character. Some light presence of chocolate was notable as well. The beer poured into the glass clear medium brown with a white low head that did lace the glass. The flavor was grainy and lightly tart with a citrusy acidity. A light presence of chocolate was notable and a tart cherry character coupled with a nice presence of oak. The finish went dry with lasting impressions of fruit and oak. The body was medium light and with a decent level of carbonation the beer was quite refreshing. A nice beer, nothing complex, but still a nice thirst quenching bottle. 25 cl bottle. 17 06 04

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
11.3 ounce bottle purchased in a mixed 6 pack (on sale) at BevMo in Stockton, CA. Lightly sour, lactic aroma with some metallic notes present. There is also some roasty, chocolate, and banana estery aromas. Pretty nice. Beautiful moderately hazy mahogany body with a reddish garnet coloration present along with a large, frothy, khaki-colored head that leaves some nice lacing. Starts with a very mildly, lightly sour flavoring, which becomes quite sweet and cloying in the middle. A little roastiness with some chocolate flavors are present in the middle. Finishes a bit watery and rather thin. The sourness doesnt really add a whole hell of a lot to this, and it just contrasts and makes the thin body stand out even more and seem more flawed. Pretty boring.

The way I see this beer is the Flemish sour Ale to those who doesn’t like Flemish Sours. Its got a high carbonation, a little bit of malt flavor and only a pinch of sourness. Still very nice.

Bottle, purchased at whole foods. Pours ruby with a big fluffy tan head. Aroma is sweet with a bit of oak, mixed with some fruit notes. Big bold punchy taste, not super sour, more mildly sweet, decent brew.

A good beer but not very true to style. The sourness is very subtle. Light oak in the aroma. A brown, not red beer. Some sourness and I wrote in my notes it was like a Flemish red because I wasn’t sure what I was drinking.

Thanks to Brewfiend for sharing. Pours a nice dirty brown. Nice dark fruit sweetness with a good aoky sour bite. Great light sour bite on the front palate, but the flavor fades quickely. Decent flavor, but nothing spectacular.
