Blend of Ensorcelled and golden sour. The product actually has a slight funk to it. Reddish brown pour with a dark fruit and funk with light raspberry. Really nice.

JorisPPattyn (9529) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2016
No head left over faintly veiled red-amberish beer. Fruity, but also bakery-like nose, bit of lactic acid and even acetic acid; Fruity, bit of fruitacids and other stronger acids, not that complex, really; Thinnish body, but with a nice fruity aftertaste. As it is, not a patch on the Founders Club series, definitely, but not bad at all.
