On tap at Pazzo’s. Lots of cherry flavor with some tartness to offset the sweet taste.

Monks cafe Flemish sour red CAN. Pours a dark ruby with good cola coloured head.. Raspberry & woody aroma quite sweet.. Starts with that sweet fruit berry, then goes tart, solid wood, good bite yet still sweet.. Sourced REAL a gastropub

abdiorio (43) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Opaque red color. Pour has a 1" head but fizzles down quickly. Smells like cherries and tastes like a sour cherry too. Malty and delicious!!! Light after taste.

ThreeCats (1012) - ISRAEL - DEC 26, 2016
Clear ruby red with a tan head. Aroma of red fruit, wine, cherries and tartness. Taste is tart, woody, tannic, with high carbonation. Good, but not as good as it could be. The tannins kinda overwhelm the taste, leaving an almost unpleasant feeling.

Deep amber with ruby highlights. Thin head. Dried cherry and spice and not too sour. Great flavor and enjoyable..

Monks Cafe Flemish Sour Ale. A simple, but good sour. Aroma and taste is not as intense as others within the category. Nevertheless pleasant.
