Pours a dark red color with very small amount of head. It is both sweet and sour with aromas of brandy as well as a strange taste of marinated meat in worcestershire sauce.

Cor vermelha bem escura. Media formação de espuma e persistência. Aroma de vinagre balsâmico, frutado. Sabor medio de vinagre balsâmico, um azedo gostoso. Um pouco frutada. Dulçor marcante. Ameixas, cereja e um pouco de passas. Muito interessante! Gostei bastante.

Big Tart Green Apple taste throughout. You get notes of bright juicy berries and the hint of oak and fig too. Beautifully crafted and well rounded beer. Enjoy, so delicious!

Really nice sour red ale. Aroma of vinegar, sour cherries, cranberries - similar to red wine. Really nice head, great, sour taste. One of the best in this style.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big bottle, served in teku. Pours dark amber with ruby highlights, extremely clear with thick, browny/beige head. Aroma is very intense, you feel sourness in your mouth only by smelling it. It mostly resembles balsamic vinegar, but there is more to it i.e. sweetness, candid fruits, raisins, blackberry, more cherry after shaking. Delicious, complex aroma. Taste is certainly sour, however, there is some spiciness, espiecially in the aftertaste. Its not that sour as you would expect, but makes for great balance between sourness and sweetness. Finish is quite long and leaves you with grape-like flavour in your mouth. Its a great example of sour beer, though imho wildly underestimated on ratebeer due to high availability and crazy low ratings from people not familiar with sour styles. Anyway, its not the best flanders, but you wont find many better ones, espiecially at this price.

A real cherrybomb of sweetness and great aroma. This is the one beer you need not to miss.

Just add some olive oil and you’ll have a nice balsamic salad dressing. Dark cherry after taste. A bit too sweet for my liking. Does get better towards the bottom of the bottle.

Poured a nice brown red. There was little head which dissipated quickly. Little lacing to speak of. The aroma was sour which was misleading. The taste was great. A tangy sweetness followed by a mild bitter finish. Great beer.

1 of 8 beers I enjoyed at Prohibition Taproom’s Sour Event during Philly Beer Week. Solid sour, but it is not standing out today. Would like to try again on its own and reevaluate it

Bottle, 33cl, shared half-half with a friend straight from the bottle (which means I can’t rate for appearance or aroma). Has a sweeter taste than Rodenbach Grand Cru, but doesn’t lack any complex notes. Tastes like a bit like wine (which I suspect is the barrel aging). Nice, but too sweet for a sour.
