We blend young and old beers to make this mildy tart sour ale. Light bodied with a lactic/sour nose and a bit of sweet and sour in the finish. Very refreshing!

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

Hazy dark brown with a foamy cream colored head. Sour, wild yeast aroma. Tart, sharp, fruity bite, tart...tart. Not bad, but I don’t love it.

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

This was the Monk’s Cafe Flemish Sour ale and routed me here. Poured a slightly unfiltered reddish-brown with a foamy beige head. Sweet taste of tart cherries, sour, candy, and vinegar. Average carbonation, medium body. Thanks for the trade Bob.

Pours a deep reddish brown with a thin off white head. Nice tart, sour, fruity aroma. Crisp clean slightly tart taste. Flavors aren’t too bold but still pretty good. Smooth finish. Refreshing and enjoyable but not the best I’ve had.

Luvystypotables (2136) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2016
An aroma of plums and fruit. Pours a dark reddish brown with a tan well laced head. Taste of plums with a hint of tartness, medium body with a sour fruit finish.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a tulip glass. The appearance showcases a thin fizzy off white head. The color is a ruby brown similar to cola. The aroma opens up with cherry and cranberry some herbal notes to add. The flavor is starts with sweet cherry like notes with toast grain at the base. In rings the sour with cranberry/cherry tartness on the tongue with a hint of black pepper. Almost like a carbonated Pinot Noir rose. Very delicious sour to have with pork dishes.
