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.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
