Muddy dark brown with medium tan head. Aroma is medium sweet, berry fruity, sour yeasty. Taste is very sour, blueberry, yeasty, light cherry. Full body. Calls itself a cross between a dubbel and trippel, but there's some definite lambic quality to this.

This brew pours with an opaque dark brown body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is slightly sweet yet sour and malty with a slight spiciness. The flavor is slightly bitter and sour with a slight spiciness. Medium bodied and smooth yet dry.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown and clear with a tan head. Pissy, nutty and sour hop aroma. Flavor is sour malts, hops and fruits. Medium body, slight carbonation. Pretty good, but I guess I don't totally get this style yet.

amazing stuff. the 1 litre swingtop bottle was a good start. belgian sour ale character - wood and cherry aroma, deep murky brown and imposing. tastes initially of cherry with a big burst of sourness. some surprise chocolate and tomato juice flavours came through later in the glass. was just staggered by this - the hich alcohol was evident but not out of place. cultivated some of the yeast and it made a great batch of home brew so that was an added bonus rather than a subtracted bonus

Leather and chocolate aroma, sour barnyard taste with a strawberry nuance, awesome, full mouthfeel and a super smooth palate.
