3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught Small beige head over hazy foxy-amber beer. Oud bruin, at its best; extremely fruity, cherry, lactic acid, putteke, wet wood. Fresh, tart, oud bruin in wood, but less fruity in the mouth than in the nose. Only the MF leaves a bit to be desired, being a tad watery, but offering lasting lactic acid flavouring. Excellent! I want more from these guys. In the present sample, a bit more body and a bit more lagering might have elevated it even higher.

From bottle, courtesy of Joes. Hazy opaque red color, no head. Smell sour, some warm cherries you sometimes get with Ice cream. Taste sour, unripe fruits. Pretty decent beer, very well balanced. Way better then expected. Medium to high carbo, but not offensive.
