3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle into a goblet.
Pours a nearly clear medium brown with a smallish half finger tan head. Ok head retention with pretty good lacing.
Aroma has quite a bit of tartness and cherries along with some vinegar. Barnyard in the background along with yeast. Of all these aromas, however, tart dark fruit really dominates.
The flavor really has a lot going on. Lots of tartness and dark fruit up front but there is a solid powdered cocoa flavor underneath that surprised me a little bit. Barnyard rises quickly next but it remains restrained. Quite acidic all the way through but has a slightly sticky finish. Carbonation is soft and high.
Overall, a tasty but not over the top complex brew. It would make a good introduction into the expansive world of wild Belgian beers.

Sampled from a bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Sour, fruity aroma. Classic sour/sweet taste. Some sweetness, then balsamic vinegar and sour fruit taste, with hints of raspberry. Well-balanced taste with good mouthfeel. Refreshing, but rather sour for my taste.

Wow, wow, wow. Heavenly sour-sweet, an elevation of malt and tart, with just a hint of vinegar keeping it from the five-point range. Flanders=if it isn’t perfection, you can at least see it from there.

Aroma is cherry, fruity but solid oak backbone.
Looks brown red in the glass. Little head.
Taste is like aroma.
Palate is a bit light and watery. Carbonation is not very smooth.
I like this as a sour beer before the sour thing started: it’s tart but the focus is on a balanced beer not an oh my god gimmky sour its so tart crap fest.

Pours a dark Reddy brown with a tan head which stick around.. Looks amazing.
Smells of natural yeast and farmyard.
Tastes heavily sour with a sweet acidic undertone which lasts. I’m not sure why but the overall taste doesn’t quite work for me.
