Well no doubt this is a sour but nowhere near the intensity (of course) but a reasonable interpretation of a Flemish. Sour citrus fruits are very broad albeit not deep nor long.

Had thanks to VanS in a trade. Aroma and taste is strong of apples. Similar tones to the breuerys sour in the rye. A great sour, very tasty.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375 ml bottle, bottled December 17, 2012. Pours a hazy translucent dark copper/light brown with hues of orange and red when backlit. Head settled quickly to a wisp with sugary white lacing. Aroma is tangy with cherry sweetness, but I also smell a a certain citrus complexity, notably grapefruit and oranges. Flavor is sour, mouthpuckering yet quenching. Sour cherries, a hint of brett, and a slight vanilla sweetness. Alcohol is completely masked - this tastes like a freshly squeezed cherry juice with a hint of cranberry, apricot and lemon. Dry snappy finish - world class.

Beige pour with a little cloudiness. Aromas of tart apples, Sauvignon Blanc and taste goes to sour apple juice, white wine tannins, and a hunt if ginger. Delicious.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
@ Quintessence - glowing orange-ruby red color, small froth head. Wild yeast, ripe cherries, orange zest, oak and hints of molasse. Cherries and wine define the opening, coated with orange and merlot grapes, backed up by zingy lemon zest and pleasantly smooth acidity. Dough malts feather the vinous fruits, while lingering tartness adds an intriguing, well balanced complexity. Bretts do not take over the taste of the beer, but accentuates the fruits, blended together with oak, malt and sublte sweetness. Lively carbonation, which gives this medium-bodied beer a fitting, velvet mouthfeel, resulting in a pleasant, sour aftertaste.
