Plain dark Belgian beer with a fruity and herbal flavour and aroma. Bitter on the palate, and overall OK.

This beer had a small sized ivory head that was both creamy and smooth and contained fine-small sized bubbles that was mostly lasting. The nose was sour, fruity and citrusy. The flavor was sour and fruity with a smooth and thin textured palate. This was a light bodied beer with fair lacing.

Very sweet and fruity (cherry) aroma. Very dark red coloured with an offwhite frothy and lasting head. Taste is malty, fruity, wood, sweet and sour. Bit metallic finish. Overall a good beer however its taste could be stronger.

Glowing cherry color, slightly cloudy, with a small off-white head. There were plenty of large chunks settled at the bottom of the glass. Full cherry and oak aroma. The flavor was a great mix of sweet, sour, cherry, wood, and grapes. Crisp feel, very soft on the tongue.

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.
