This ale poured a dark orange with a off white head. This beer to the nose is very strong scented with cider vinegar and very ripe fruit. almost fermented ripe fruit. First taste wasthinner than I thought it might be. Sour to taste with the cider vinegar taste coming through slowly. Slightly metallic with a stomach acid flavour to the palate. Very different.

A disappointment, nice brown color body, thick white head with great lacing. Aroma was of lemon and wheat, but came across being rather astringent. Flavor was also astringent, very little malt to balance out the sourness. I couldn’t detect any oak notes. Carbonation was slightly above adequate.

On tap @ Petrus Cafe, Ieper. Pours a deep brown-red body with a moderate tan head. Aroma is oak and vague balsamic notes. Taste is wood, mild caramel malts and hints of balsamic. Drinkable palate, but otherwise a pretty boring oud bruin; not much to add here.

Pours dark brown with a thin tan head and good retention. Aroma is spicy caramelly, with dark fruits and some metal. Flavor is sour with some metal, dark cherries and woody undertones. Too sour for me to enjoy, but I did not pitch it. Not bad.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy reddish brown. Smells sweet and lightly sour. Tastes sweet and slightly sour with minimal flavor and a thin feel - watery.

Not bad for a sour but I’m still trying to get used to them. Dark color in the glass it smells like cola and berries. Taste has a mild sour fruit with spme cherries. Tart on the finish.

Out of bottle smells of citrus tastes of multiple fruits pretty good I just don't think 3.50 for 1 bottle is worth it.

Huge foamy head,, different label ? Red color. Nose was woody and . Oh GOD, This is a sour freakin’ brew. Why oh god why? This could make me stop drinking. Even mouth fulls of salsa can’t was the rotten milk taste from my mouth. I usually research the brews before I sample, not this time.
