[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! :-)

Bottle 0,25. Pours dark brown and redish with large off-white head. Aroma of cherries, vinegar, malts, berries. Taste is cherries, red berries, malts, hint of oak and tobacco. Sour at first but with some sweetness taking slowly over. Reminds somewhat of red lemonade. Interesting mix of sweet and sour. Medium body and soft carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Strong sour apple smell with some funk. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a thick persistent buff head with tight bubbles. Big sour flavors of turpentine, floral notes with some balancing sweetness. A lingering finish, medium carbonation and dry mouthfeel. Really interesting.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

clear brown, frothy tan head with some irregular lacing. vinegar, oak, plum, raisin, lemon, caramelized sugar, apple, cherry. medium sour, medium sweet. medium body, creamy feel, lively carbonation. definitely not as sour as many others of the style. rather intense sweetness underneath the puckery sour makes this a lot more drinkable than most sours ive had.

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.
