Not a huge fan of sour beers, but this one had enough sweetness to balance it out

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A deep brown beer with reddish hues and a decent head of foam.
Notes of candi sugar, yeast, and a light tartness in the smell.
Some of the brown ale hits my palate to start. Followed by a wee bit of the candi sugar, yeast, and a very mild sour taste or two.
Light body and lots of carbonation make for a so so mouthfeel.

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.

Nice entry level sour as it is only slightly sour and has a thin effervescent body that while good is a bit on the thin side. Good Belgian funk and a tart sour fruit finish...an easy drinking Belgian.

Bottle. Not bad, mild tingle on the tongue with a nice smooth palate and a sweet/dry finish....overall, a little too thin but still quite an enjoyable beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear brown color with a tiny white head that fades to nothing and small amount of lacing. Aroma is cherry, vinegar, and a little bit of malt. The aroma is a little weak. The taste is a typical brown ale with some of those familiar sour tastes but it’s very thin and watery. It’s an ok beer but it’s boring.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This one certainly looks good - dark red-brown with a lovely foamy head. I couldn’t make out much of a scent. Flavor was much like fizzy water. Palate is like a diet sprite. An overall disappointment.
