Shared by Kermis. Poured a medium brown with a frothy head. Aroma of zesty berry fruit, very Flemish in style. Medium body, flavour is bitter sweet and very fruity. Not my choice of beer, but good at the style.

Tasted from draft. Pours a cola black with off white head. Complex aroma and taste. Aroma is dark fruits, cherries, caramel, maple syrup, toffee, plums. Taste is moderately sweet with faint bitterness. Flavors similar to aroma and crazy complex. I'm not a huge sour fan but this is very good.

750 ml bottle sampled at the RB Best Awards. Thanks to whoever shared this one. Pours a cloudy brown with a moderate beige head that settles into a big ring and some film. Toasted and mild roasted malts, chocolate, sour berry fruits, leather, lemon, oak, earth, and tobacco. Light-medium bodied, with medium to high carbonation and a tart, dry mouthfeel. Good dark malty sour, but not quite in the echelon that a lot of their other beers occupy.

Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a burnt umber with a hint of sienna on the edges with two fingers of thick khaki foam. Nose is a mix of dark fruit, roasted grain and cocoa dust, earthy musty basement and a touch of balsamic. Palate follows with some dark earthy funk rounding the beer out nicely and some focused dark tangy fruit to add a counterpoint to the roasted malt undertones. Leather, cherry, moss, bark mulch, cranberry and a touch of beef jerky.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Usually these awkward blend type beers dont work but in this case the final product trumps the parts that went into it. Dark near black color with light off white head. Aroma is tobacco, cherry, cocoa, light balsamic, and earthy. Taste is perfectly tart with light sweetness for balance. Mouthfeel is soft and nice. Overall just a great unique beer.

Amber bought a bottle for the table and this did not disappoint, tons of flavors going on all balanced perfectly. Wine, roast, tart, etc. Well done!
