This one was very delicious. Usually i find the sourness of a flemish to be a bit too offensive, but that wasn’t the case at all with this one. This one was much more well balanced and full of rich fruity flavors. Much sweeter than expected after smelling how sour the aroma was. Very enjoyable.

Guest tap at Town Hall in Minneapolis. A breat blend of brett sour and grain sweet. Low hops, as one would expect. Well done. So unusual to find something like this on tap, especially in Minnesota. A little bit sweet to drink too much of it, but a 4-6oz. pour is perfect. Enjoyable.

good tartness but could lose the sweetness at the end i like my sours sour, but i believe they add sugar to balance with the tartness, decent aroma

It’s a learning experience to taste this beer. It is so complex that I’m tempted to say - just try it. Clear, deep red/amber colour, foamy head. Aroma of malt, earth, leaves, fermented fruits, young wine, vinegar, belgian yeast. Taste is mainly sour with sweetness trying to balance it. I love how it develops and changes it’s aroma when it warms up to the temperature of the environment. Woody notes are present in the aftertaste.
This beer is one of the most unpredictable and undefined I’ve drunk so far.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Pours a clear dark brown color with a beige 1-finger head. Aroma is vinegary. Taste is acidic, sour, vinegar, and some dark fruitiness. Average carbonation that leaves the palate cleanly with a minute lingering bite.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught at Gingerman in Houston. Served in a goblet. Deep burgundy/black with a nice white head. Aroma of grapes, apples, wine. Flavor was phenomenal and unique, sweet and winey with grape and apple and very little hops. Sweetness was smooth and refreshing and not overpowering. Silky sweet finish with little noticeable hops. I would love another right now. Amazing beer.

Smells really sweet, with honey, brown sugar, apples, tastes cidery, sour, but with serious malt presence. Just exactly the amount of sourness I like. Reminds me of both cider vinegar and malt vinegar, but has a little sweetness for balance. Reddish brown with a small tan head,

Red-brown with bubly vanishing cream coloured head. Vinegar like aroma with notes of maraschino and higher alcohols. Some earth flavours blends well with the vineous sour flavours. Sweet yet balanced and fresh.

Red ale color with thin tanish head. Sour nose (in a good way) and a good lightly sweet cider taste. Leaves palate clean. Really good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark burgandy in color with a bubbly tan head.Smell is awesome. Sour apple dominates the nose as well as cherry. It is a bit musky and tart and very complex like a good wine.Very sweet taste at first and it finishes sour. Light malt flavor with hints of cherry, cranberry, and sour apple. Light carbonation and a great taste make this a must try.
