Inspired by the Belgian sour ales of West Flanders, Le Serpent has a distinct sharp acidity & complexity. This beer is brewed only once a year and aged in French oak barrels. A mixed culture of “wild” organisms are used in fermentation making each batch truly unique.

750mL bottle, pours a hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out lightly tart red fruits, with some oak and light funk. Flavour is tart and oaky, with tart red fruits, funk, and wood. Quite complex and well-balanced. Low acidity, finishing woody. Very nice.

From a 750 ml bottle at the RBSG Grand Tasting. This was was probably beer number 200 and my taste buds were kind of shot by this point. But this one still stood out. Pours amber with a white head. Nose of cherry oak, and lots and lots of funk. Medium plus in body. Mouth feel has a bit of a bite. Flavor is what you expect in a wild ale with lot of sourness to go with the cherry and oak. Very good.

From notes. Tasted on 9/16/12 from a capped 750mL bottle that I received in a trade with Bill Becker aka bitterbill a long time ago. Pours cloudy cola brown with a red tint, and a thin beige head that leaves very thin lace. The nose is very sour citrus and tart cherry with nice dark bread malt, and just a touch of cinnamon spice. The flavor is a very balanced combination of sour citrus, bread malt, cherry, and nice vanilla and cinnamon oak. The body is medium and very tannic with average carbonation and a long sour, malty, cherry, and oaky finish. Although not much to look at in the glass, this is one of the best tasting beers I have ever had.

PhillyCraft (4285) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle shared at tasting, poured clearish orange-red shade with medium head. Aromas and flavor are oak, sour fruit, lactic acids, and some caramel bread. As it warms, the rich grapes come out. Nice but maybe a bit too sharp/acidic.

marcus (7838) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours orange amber with a modest off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a mildly sour caramel malt flavor with a dry oak finish. Not much like a Flemish sour, yet a pretty tasty brew.
