3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft, tasted side by side with Kelso Imperial Red and Bockor Bellegems Bruin. This one had the most bitterness, which clashed a bit with the deep sourness at the heart of the beer.

Snifter draft at Taco Mac in Chattanooga. Dark reddish brown color with moderate off-white head that diminished slowly. Complex citrus and spice aroma. Medium body with smooth texture. Same complex citrus and spice flavor with a moderate sweet finish. Interesting brew.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Fruchtiger, saurer Geruch. Das Bier startet direkt Mittel-sauer, alle anderen Aromen werden verdrängt. Das Bier wirkt auch sonst recht langweilig und wässrig. Selbst die erhofften fruchtigen Aromen können nur ab und an im Hintergrund ausgemacht werden. Im Nachgeschmack ist neben einem holzigen Aroma ein an faule Eier erinnerder Geschmack auszumachen. Eins der schlechtesten belgischen Biere bisher.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled: Dark red coloured. Has a thin beige head. Aroma is a little bland. Some sourness and a little bit of fruitsweetness. The flavour is bland as well. A little acidic sourness but not as distinct as I prefer in this style. Is quite dry in the end, but dies quickly on the palate. A little disappointing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 330ml at The Anchor, Birmingham. Mahogany with cream head. Sharp and tangy with a sweet fruity aside note. Fullish on the palate, there is a tartness that gives it a twangy edge. Pretty decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The beer pours a dark brown with a slight reddish tint. There is a thin layer of white foam.
S: The primary aroma is roasted malt. This is followed by a slight lactic acid scent and a decent combination of barnyard funk and oak.
T: I have not had too many beers of this style, so I was a bit unsure as to what I should expect. There is definite Brown ale character initially, along with a lactic zing. It is more sweet than sour, with lots of roasted malt and mild oak coming through. On the finish there are slight notes of dark fruits.
M: This beer features plentiful carbonation and a dry mouthfeel, which is something I really enjoy.
D: Moderate alcohol and an effervescent mouthfeel make this beer very drinkable. The flavors and aromas are good, but not great, so I doubt I will have this again at nearly $4 for a 330ml bottle.
