2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Extra in a trade... Out of the 11.2oz into a flute. Pours redish brown w/ little to no head. Smells of Juniper & pine. Flavor leaves much to be desired. A little funky, but not sour in the slightest. Thin mouth-feel. Not the ’key to heaven’ I was expecting. No thanks

dark ruby pour with a off white head. Aroma is dusty oak with some fruity sweetness. Flavor follows through, not much sour going on in this one. Just sort of falls flat on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 10C. Brooding red brown with a brief beige head. Aroma of sweet apples, brown sugar, vinegar must, vanilla. Taste has a little acid right up front, then very gentle sugary sweetness. Finishes dry with wood and cherry stones. Rather watery. More acidic than it smells and the sweetness and mustiness seem to pretty much disappear. Pleasant enough but very thin.

330mL bottle, pours a dark cola brown with a small fizzy beige head. Sweet and sour malt aroma, with oak, cherry and vanilla. Flavour of mildly sour cherries, with a touch of sweetness - quite muted and water mouthful. Rather one-dimensional and unimpressive.

Pours a nice brown with little head. Nose is clear on oak, with malty taste and woody, slightly sour. Nothing special, but not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pour is clear and deep brown with hint of red - almost looks like coffee. Also a small beige layer of foam. Aroma is lightly tart with notes of chocolate covered cherries, light chalk, and a distant light maltiness. Flavor is initially tart with a very effervescent body and light berry notes. Then...almost nothing. It’s pretty strange; there is an initial burst of flavor and then almost nothing. There is a hint of wood and tartness in the finish. Very easy going down. Certainly one could drink gallons of this stuff. I did not dislike this beer, there is just not much there. I will likely drink it again, especially in the summer months.

bottle - pours a very dark brown with a finger of off-white head. Nose has a lot of caramel and wheat. Taste is mildly sour hops and then finishes cleanly. Palate is a bit thin. Overall, this is a bit disappointing for me, as it is rather one note (sour) and that’s it.

Brown with garnet highlights. Disjointed aroma. Some dried fruit on the palate, but not much going on for a west Flanders. Slight sour throughout is too subtle for style. Sweet malt is in the background.
