COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark ruby red – red as wine. The style is also called the Burgundy of Flanders, and is a very typical and common beer in West Flanders
Created by a secret blend of the aged and sour ‘mother beer’ with fresh brewed sweeter beer, this beer produces a sour-sweet balance, set off by the underlying bitterness of the hops. A discovery! The best in its style! Light in alcohol, exciting complex flavors and tastes come to the forefront.
Although serving cold is recommended, taking time to drink it will release more aromas towards the end of your glass.

33cl Bottle. Poured a hazy brown with a persistent fizzy head. Aroma: sour berries and wood. Taste: sour berries, wood, tart wine notes, mild water. Thin body. Lots of carbonation. Overall a good beer - has a very dry white wine type tone about it.

hey, my first sour ale! that said, i didn’t know what to expect. flavor was mostly chocolate malt with a hefty refreshing sour quality. sort of thin on the palate but the finish was pretty big on it, sort of weird how it all came together. i could see how some people couldnt get into sour ales though, had a sort of leather/wood quality to it. like it’d been left out in the rain. i’ll have to get more into the style someday.

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2008
330ml botle. Pours a dark, opaque brown. Lots of carbonation, small frothy head that dissipates quickly. Smells very malty, with a mix of fruit, mostly banana. Palette is smooth, but quite tangy. Flavour is complex and quite nice. Can definitely taste the oak aging.

Petkus331 (329) - Redford, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2014
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.
