Bottle at Monk’s in Philly. Pours a cloudy amber into the tulip glass with a huge fluffy, white head. Scents of sour apples, cherries and vinegar. Very sour, puckering taste. Very refreshing with hints of malt, hops and sour apples. A very nice sour beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pleasantly sour farmyard aroma in a mahogony pour. Flavour is sour to start but builds with complex layers of fruit, bread, and bubblegum. A fresher version of their benchmark Duchesse De Bourgogne.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. One year old bottle. Pours a clear, deep mahogany color and a beige, creamy head. Aroma of leather, vinegar, sweet cherries, oak, yeast, wine grapes, dried fruit, crowberry and licorice. Quite complex. The flavor follows up but is more sweet with tones of brown sugar, sweet cherries, wood, cola and hints of balsamico. Has a slick and sticky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A really complex and tasteful ale, well-balanced and a delicious version of the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 mL bottle poured into a goblet. Pours a dark brown with a hint of orange color. Large off-white head despite a careful pour. Substantial surface foam even an half hour after pouring. Sour cherry smell. A bit of a vinegar smell behind it and maybe some sweetness. A tart flavor with cherries. Not an overpowering sourness at all. A bit of lingering sweetness, but not cloying at all. Doesn’t feel as light as 5.1% at all. Only slightly thin in the finish. Medium carbonation helps keep it from feeling too heavy, though. Nice balance. Not too sour, not too sweet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark reddish brown color letting almost no light through with a huge head. Aroma is vanilla, malt, sweet strawberry, balsamic vinegar, black cherry, faint chocolate, tart overall. Taste is strawberry, balsamic, cherry, very dry oak, slight sour. Aroma is almost bigger than the taste, very complex, never saw a few of these notes in a sour before so I enjoyed it.
