not generally my favourite style. Nice sour winey nose. Taste is full, not overly sour but a slight underlying sour taste. Good mouth feel, smooth and rich, Ok would not turn one down but wouldn’t seek it out either.

[bottle, 12oz, 11 months old, ~18C, Had this with Daniel Bilodeau]
Rich deep brown with ruby highlights. Nice head with good lacing. To the nose: Red wine, barnyard, humus, bitter-sweet, (subacid). some sort of balsamic vinegar. Taste is sweet but no trace of fruit whatsoever. Traces of lactic fermentation. Exceptional. Glad I can find it at the corner store! :-)

11.2 oz. bottle. Aroma of vinous fruit, oak, yeast, and raisin. A definite sour character. A unique flavor: a mixture of tart and sweet. A lot of fruity notes -- cherry, grape, apple, plum, and apricot. Also some malty characters and spice. A big tart bite in mid mouth. Some lively carbonation. Dry finish. A very good beer with a complex and unique aroma and flavor. Well balanced.

Bottle.. ..Tart aroma, hints of fruit. Can tell that it’s sour (mouth starts watering just by smelling). . .Dark brown, hints of ruby in the light. Tan head, good retention.. .. .sweet start, with funky belgian yeast notes. Tangy! YUM. . .. light carbonation, med body.... .Very drinkable yet sour Flanders Brown. Has a puckery sour aroma, but a good deal of sweetness keeps the sour at bay. Good find.

On tap at Map Room, Chicago. If you’re hesitant about sour ales-- this one’s just sweet enough to not turn you away. I liked the slightly sweet taste to offset the Belgian sour flavor. Almost like if someone poured a little New Glarus Belgian Red into a glass of Rodenboch Grand Cru. Well done and quite enjoyable.
