3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2009 vintage. Regular beer drinkers at my session hated the stuff but I still loves me a fine Belgian sour ale. The aroma is a nice mix of vinegar and malt, the appearance a nice deep brown. The flavour is a sour mix with beer, a gueuze-like concoction that works just right in the friday night fog. Rodenbach can’t do wrong in my books and this is a fine sour ale. But it is not what it isn’t: if that makes sense.

Bottle with the boys at Porch Nite. Vintage was 2010. Wow. This stuff is amazing. Pours an amber brown with minimal head. Aroma is tart cherry, toffee, malt. Flavor is a complex blend of cherries and maltiness with some sourness, but not so much that you pucker. Just really smooth and clean. Finishes very dry. Wonderful beer.
