4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark dark red, practically brown with a cream colored head. Aroma is dark fruits, lots of tart cherries, some nice funkiness and some oaky hints. Wow the first sip of this is crazy sour and funky, a blast of tart cherry and some plum, hints of oak, very dry puckery finish, a lot going on the flavor, and pleasantly sour for sure, would love to get another bottle for the cellar.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle brought back by Dogbrick. Clear reddish copper pour with a medium tan head. Malty and funky nose with sour cherry and wood notes. Malty and woody flavor with sour vinegar and light cherry character before a big sour finish. Seems to be a bit more sour than I remember from GABF, but still very tasty.

On tap at Beer Revolution. Dark copper brown with no head. Ara of sour green apple, candy sugar, and light acetone. Tastes of sour green apple, candy, and caramel with a sharp acidic finish. Bright but oddly crisp palate. A little rough overall for my tastes.

Aroma of leather, wood, cherry, charred meat. Sour apple flavor, not as explosively sour, but great mouthfeel. Some sweet notes.

31 aug 2012, bottle. Murky brown. Nose is dried wood, tart wood. Lots of wood, some tart, faintly sweet. Thin body, faintly fizzy, sets teeth on edge. Really tart oaky. No tart finish. All the best of a sour with no negatives.

For me, this is the perfect level of sourness which is 8/10. I like this Flanders better than the classics brewed in Belgium. Not quite as dry and woody as the classics, but it doesn’t seem to matter. The Caravienne malt is a nice surprise and the Brett C pineapple note is pleasant guest, but the two sometimes clash in the nose creating a moment of sniffing confusion. Very good, overall.
