3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Armin. Thanks! This one was tough to open, but when it did, it decided to gush two glasses worth out the top. Once it settled down, a dark brown pour with a spare white head and very little lacing. Aroma is muddled, some vegetal, with odd dark roasted malt and little sour notes. Tastes is odd sour spice, odd roasty toast, with chocolate, coffee, dark sour fruit. Really odd. Kinda a mess.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown pour, white head, quite a few chunks. Aroma of cherries, vinegar, quite lactic, jolly pumpkin like funk. Taste is sour, vinegar, but very fruity, quite sweet some roast caracter on the finale. Palate is silky, low carbed and heavy bodied. Pretty tasty sour.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle gushed when opened. Smells sour with dark fruit aromas. Hints of caramel and cherry. Dark brown with nice tan head. Lots of small chunks of yeast that quickly settle to the bottom of the glass. The flavor is sour with lots of sweet malt in the background. Some pleasant flavors that remind me of sweet lemon iced tea. All in all though, this beer’s flavor is most like a oud bruin or flanders red. Very drinkable and very well done. Sour but not dry, sweet but not too sweet. Damn good beer.

Bottle… Murky brown ale with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The funky aroma is loaded with leather, acidity, wood and herbal spices. Medium-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is funky and tart with toffee and unidentified spices. Crisp, tangy finish. Bottle courtesy of dosbeerigos!

Big thanks to DosBeerigos for sharing this bottle. Dark color with very minimal head. Light fruit in the aroma, slightly floral as well. Flavor was slightly fruity with hints of coffee. A good but not overly sour beer.
