brokensail (10795) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma of red wine and balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, caramel, and dark fruit. Green apple, spice, lemon, and a bit of spice. Nice sourness. Decent acetic notes, but still a nice lactic quality. Lemon, green apple, raisin, cherry, and plum. Brown sugar and caramel sweetness, oak, and maybe a hint of spice.

Nose - fruity brown sauce and mince pies. Taste - sour mince pies. Palate - medium bodied, tangy and balanced. Overall - delicious Flemish Brown!
