4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cola colored ale with a fleeting brown top. Smells juicy with dark cherry and oak notes. The cherry in the nose is really nice and robust with just the right amount of fruity character mixed with earthy, tea like accents. The flavor is classic oude tart with a sour bite and flemish embodiments: acetic, cherry, cola, oak, tannins. The flavor is really nice. Medium bodied with reserved carb and an off dry finish. Really a fine beer.

Pours a cloudy dark burgundy color with a small tan head that dissipates rapidly. Nose is like a cherry sweet tart. Taste is puckery for sure but a great sour with cherries. Good carbonation. A favorite sour of mine.

Capped 750 shared by oRos. Pours dark ruddy brown with a transient light tan head. Aroma of lightly tart cherries. Med body or so. Flavor is grabbingly tart cherry. Could be real cooking cherries. It’s very pleasing - never losing the cherry. And finishing woodily astringent. Extremely tasty.
