A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

Trata-se de um estilo que pouco me agrada, Sour Ale, que como o próprio nome indica é uma cerveja com notas azedas, remetendo a sabores agridoces, acéticos e ligeiramente frisante. Notas de madeira, carvalho. Coloração castanho escura, espumada de média formação e curta duração. Bem carbonatada e creme bege. Não deve ser confundida com uma lambic. Trata-se de gosto muito específico e que agrada a poucos por lembrar "vinho avinagrado". Baixa drinkability. Cairia bem com doces com Caldas de frutas cítricas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is that vinegar scent that knocks you out. The taste is cider like. Some cherry and honey crisp apple, even plum. Effervescence is great. Tap

The famous Vlaams Brown from Belgium. Extreme attractive sour smell and taste. Nothing else smells or taste like it. It feels like sour cherries in your mouth. Every beer lover should once try it.

Really nice aromas and flavors of sour cherries, other tart fruits, grainy malt and some funk. Dark brown and ruby color with a medium weight and smooth palate. A sophisticated beer.

Surprised I have never rated this. Had on tap last week in Bruges and Ieper. Appearance is ruby reddish light brown with quite a stable beige head. aroma is yeasty, dusty, berries (cherry), oak. Taste is cherries mixed with yeast and oak. Not too sour - delicately so.

A fun quirky beer, sour, moderate carbonation, fruity, a beer worth buying again but not in a 6 pack form
