4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A sweet and sour aroma of flowers and apples. Appears clear light golden yellow, thin foam, but nice lace. Taste is mostly sour balanced with some sweet and slight bitterness of bubblegum and apple. Palate is a little foamy, and thinnish. Overall, this is a very good beer! Should be considered a Berlinerweise.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Une belle petite mousse sympathique surmonte une robe brune aux reflets rouges. Ça peut sembler à priori péjoratif, mais une odeur frétillante de vieux bois sec est détectable, pour notre plus grand plaisir. Des notes de fruits rouges, notamment la framboise, peuvent être reniflées. Au goût, ces mêmes fruits rouges occupent la majorité de la place dans la bouche, les céréales procurent également un petit aspect sucré. Pas très acétique, juste assez, j’en aurais bu une caisse de cette Petrus Oud Bruin.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick, micro bubbles, tan head. Deep black, amber hue in light.
Same as Aged Pale Ale.
Bit more malty, caramel, chocolate is faint. Metallic and vinegar near back end. Bit confusing with the sour and brown malt flavors.
Not for me. Pale Ale was delicious though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 oz brown glass pry-top bottle. Label stamped "39849."
Appearance: Poured into a Maudite tulip. Thin, fast receding off-white/khaki head atop a dark cherry wood, clear brew.
Nose: Sour cherries, baked oats, munich malt, ozone, top soil.
Palate: Clean and crisp acidity keep this beer from every being "malty" despite its color. It almost has czech-pilsner-like edges, with sour raisins and sour strawberries, dried cranberry and dried cherry flavors. There’s a little woodiness that I suspect comes out more as the beer warms. A few oxi-notes, but nothing really caramelized.
Notes: A really nice sour brown. A good intro to the world of oud bruin. Not too exotic, not too extreme. Great balance with good carbonation levels and clean edges.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Aromas of roasted malt, light hops and that distinctive sour aroma. It’s a very dark brown color with a thinner tan head. There are some funky barnyard flavors here, but plenty of roasted malt and a bit of a hop backbone. There’s a flavor of sour cherries throughout, with a touch of syrupy sweetness there that makes it taste kind of like maraschino cherries. It’s very drinkable and it’s a great introduction to the sour style. It’s certainly no match in terms of sourness to the big tart monsters that breweries are doing in Colorado and California, but it’s much more approachable.

Cerveja muito respeitada, mas sinceramente está nos entre meus estilos preferidos, gosto de vinagre, se a gente faz uma cerveja caseira com essas características certamente vão falar em contaminação, azeda demais, um verdadeiro "vinagre belga".

On Tap at the Trappist in Oakland, CA. Nice dark amber appearance, great head retention. Cool sour wet horse blanket notes on the aroma that are mostly in aroma, not so much in the actual taste. Pretty low carbonation for the style. Much sweeter in the finish than you would expect from the aroma. Nice complexity when you want a balance of sweet/sour. Great complexity of flavors considering the alcohol content. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

pleasant but not quite as fantastic as some of the other sours I had in the same sitting. Will have to try this one again.
