This beer is pretty amazing. Normally I don’t like sour beers as I find them too sour, but you can taste the wood from this, very nice!

Color is dark amber, small, white head. Aroma of wine and a little bit of cherries. Vinous taste, maybe a little bit woody, but only in background. Very sour.

Bottle. Pours deep red color with small-medium head. In aroma some cherries, caramel and tiny "brett" notes. Flavor is slightly winey, with notes of caramel. Sweetness and sourness are well balanced. Good beer, for my taste, missing some lambic and spice character.

Bottle. hazy and very caramel brown with a thick beige head. and aroma as well. Much oldish malty and sweet, too. To much carbonation.

Out of bottle smells of citrus tastes of multiple fruits pretty good I just don't think 3.50 for 1 bottle is worth it.

Pours dark red with a nice sour/tart aroma. Body is not as flavorful with no tartness and just a little but of caramel malt finish.

97 version. Pours dark red with little to no head. Nose is figgy and vinous. Flavor is sour and noticable presence of Belgian candi sugar. Mild sense of cherry flavor. Tart dry finish.

This beer is tied with Monk’s for my favorite Flemish Ale to date. It features a lot of cherry aroma and flavor with a more subdued tartness and acidity.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark amber with mahogany hues. A beige head of a half-inch sunk to a full coverage skim-coat. Decent lacework throughout the glass.
Aromatics are vineous and meaty, with wine-soaked raisins and turned earth.
Not a whole lot of presense in the nose however. Lacking intensity and depth.
Creamy, velvety mouthfeel. Rich and soft.
The pallet starts off with a hint of tart vineousity, ripe fruit, juicy malt, and an earthy woodiness.
Hints of figs, worstershire, and lemon follow through.
Alcohol and bitterness are nill, and the beer finishes fairly quick.
An easy drinker, but really too tame in character. The beer just needs a lot more of what it already has.

Picked up a bottle at Boulder Liquor Mart. Poured into a bowl glass. Not much on the nose and the head goes away pretty quick, but stays strangely carbonated. Appears like a dark amber or brown ale. The taste is similar to a Belgian lambic, just not as bubbly. Good sour fruit flavors, cherries, maybe green apple, and grapes. I did not pick up anything from the wood. The finish is very nice with lingering flavors of grape juice.. Reminds me of being a kid. Great beer, would defiantly recommend and drink again.
