Wonderful. Comes together with a great movement on the palate, from sweet Belgian strong at beginning with florals and some raisins and finishes with a sour citrus zing. Pours dark brown without much head or lacing. Bottle thanks to Maniac at the Epic Sour Tasting.

’Very limited edition’ - poured a hazy red color with a small white color. Aroma is light dark fruits, funk notes. Flavor was dark fruits, funk. Alcohol is a little noticeable. Good.

12.7 oz. bottle. Tastes like ASBC, but with more sweetness from the dessert wine. Pretty good, but I prefer the harsh aggressiveness of the regular version. Still, very cool to try.
