4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Enjoyed via 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with a slight off-white head. Nose of sour cherries, malt, and a touch of dark fruit. Palate of more sour cherries, a touch of caramelly malt, and a bit of residual sweetness. A dry finish makes this a tremendously easy drinker. An excellent and traditional interpretation of a Belgian classic style.

250 ml bottle. Beautiful reddish brown body with a big off-white head. Strong and complex aroma with cellar notes, sour fruit and candy sugar with cellar notes. Flavor is a bit sweet and sour, malty, candy sugar, acidic, wood, dry fruit, roast and spicy. Very delicate and complex.

Clear dark dark ruby brown with a thin foamy head with lots of lace. Interesting aroma with earthy toffee and oak sourness, with a small smidgeon tof Chardonnay and toast. Flavor has a light sour tone that is packed full of flavor. Nice earthy sweet toffee with soft grape esters and a gentle oak tone. Very light chocolate cereal tones before the toffee comes in with an oaked sourness that is slightly tart but mildly refreshing. Has nice sweetness with subdued balancing bitterness.

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.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from an 330ml bottle. Pours a beautiful clear brown color with plenty of light beige head. Slightly sour aromas of cherry, pears, and other fruits. Nice a complex brew that makes your tastebuds tingle, but incredibly smooth!

this is yet another uncharted adventure into the "sour" world.poured a dark red/brown with a nice creamy head.as the head sat down i was met with some nice lacing.nice balanced aroma of brown sugar,malts,and the sour funk.the taste was also very balanced with a mix of fruits,spice,pepper,brown sugar,and candy.this is a very nice change from some of the "sour beers" i have had.im going to get some more of this when i can.

Pours ruby with a 3-4 finger off-white head. The aroma is oaky malty, with nuts, bourbon, brown sugar, port, merlot, and some funk. This tastes initially like a slightly sweet Flemish sour, but gains a solid merlot flavor profile and palate feel, coupled with some oaky malts and berries. Very nice.

Pours deep burgundy with a thin tan head. Aroma of funky brett, cherries, leather, and barnyard fruitiness. Taste is cherry, plum, nutty toasted malts, and oak. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Finish is pleasantly acidic with a restrained sourness. I wasn’t sure I’d ever like a sour beer. This brew is delicious, and has changed my mind.
