(750ml bottle) cloudy ruby pour with no head. Nose of sour cherry, funky Belgian yeast, and barrel. Wheres the quad? Doesnt matter, it smells like a delicious sour. Taste of tart cherry, funky, oak, some caramel, a delicious linger!! Some cognac and quite complex really. Just an awesome beer. Almost exactly like a sour as opposed to a quad thats been soured.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
In short: An intense, oaky, tannic and slightly sour strong amber ale with a ton of cherries. Excellent sipper
How: Bottle 750ml shared at RBSG 2011 grand tasting
The look: Cloudy dark-amber body topped by a medium off-white head with good retention
In long: Nose is powerful, a bit wild/farmhouse, lots of cherries. Taste is sharp and very tannic, fresh red cherries, oaky sourness, some darker fruits. A bit sweeet at first but finish is abruptly saliva sucking. Alcohol absurdly well hidden. This is classified here on ratebeer as an Abt but the flavor profile is more like a Flemish Sour on steroids with extra cherries. Another strong big strong ale durign a big beer day. A very nice beer I was able to enjoy during the kick-ass Ratebeer Summer Gathering week-end. To me, the existence of the annual RBSG is the one proof that the internet can be used for more than watching porn, illegally downloading music & movies and watching videos of cute kittens doing adorable things.

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Bottle generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Beautiful pour of a hazy, glowing orange. Aroma hits first of bourbon, then some tart cherry and sweet toasted coconut. Great and complex flavor of vanilla, brett, sour cherry, and brown sugar. Crisp, acidic front with more bourbon in the finish. This is a winner!
