3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This brew poured a large head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a good lace and a hazy softly carbonated brown colored body. The aroma was fruity and reminded me of raspberries. The mouthfeel was smooth and slightly fizzy. The flavor was mildly sour, spicey and mildler than expected. It is very different from any of my other 700+ ratings.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is citrusy and nutty. Appearence is a reddish-brown with little to no head. Flavor was a little sour with some cherries and apples coming through. Pretty close to a brown ale in alot of ways with this nutty flavor present. A nice beer but I'm sure many better in this style exist.

This is perfectly balanced traditional Belgian bruin ale. On draft, it blew me away with its sweet fruit and amazing balancing sourness. Awesome.

Soft and mild compared to some Flemish sours that I've tasted, this nice oaky, cherry candy ale was lighly carbonated and quite tasty. Alcohol was present in the first sip, but not too full of fire. Lasting notes of wood and cherry candies.

Alcohol, plum, oaken notes. Very sour cherry flavors. Fizzy, and some subtle malt flavors. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is a murky brown to amber in color. Topped by a thin wispy head. Smells tart and vinuous. The first impression is that this beer is lightly sour, not as much as I was expecting from this beer. A fairly dry beer as well. At first, when cold, there is not too much flavor. It is lightly carbonated, with notes of sour plum in it, as it warms up. It does become slightly more sour as well, and it becomes a bit fuller in the mouth. Overall a fairly simplistic version of a sour Flemish ale.

A milder version of eg. Rodenbach Grand Cru. However it is still pleasant, complex and fruity.

Dark brown colour. Very pleasant acidic aroma. The flavour is slightly acidic at first, but then turns towards fruityness and sweetness.
