COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A fusion of sour reds and sour browns, each component ranged from 1-3 years in the barrel. Oak malt, tart jabs, and a funky backbone formed from the complex blend of wild yeast. A balanced interpretation of both east and west Flanders tradition.

marcus (10682) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 16, 2017
Bottle from alexsdad06. Pours dark brown with an attractive tan head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a hearty sour brown malty flavor with a smooth oak finish. A pleasant drink.

bhensonb (15761) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 16, 2017
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours slightly ruddy brown with a transient beige head. Aroma of rich sour ale. Med body. Flavor is earthy, moderately sour reddish fruits, and a bit of funky oak. The sour is to be reckoned with, but it’s reasonably un-acidic. It’s very tasty. Especially with Grand Chimay cheese.

phaleslu (10673) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2017
500 ml bottle from the brewery. Pours a cloudy, deep, slightly browned amber with a moderate beige head that settles into a ring and wispy island of film. Notes of black cherries, oak, balsamic vinegar, oak, toasted sugars, plums, funk, earth, chocolate, toast, and blueberries. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a fruity, acidic, funky, toasty mouthfeel. This is excellent for a style that normally has a ceiling below this for me. This is Rodenbach level good.

alexsdad06 (10821) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2017
Draft at Jackie o’s. Pours a hazy caramel brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have tart dark fruits, caramel, light toasted malts, the sweet/sour combination is well done, oak, some balsamic notes, some vinous character, pleasant acidity, very nice, continued to show complexity with warming.

Bottle thanks to George. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong oak, leather, funk, vinegar. Medium body, leather, dark fruit, oak, nice tartness, light acidity, enjoyed this.

drfabulous (8591) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle shared at Todd’s. This is brown sour ale all the way from nose to taste with red wine vinegar throughout.

4.1
Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle at Winking Lizard. Pours a hazy dark reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart cherry, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of tart pitted fruits, yeast and chocolate malt. The finish is moderately sour with a cherry aftertaste. Good beer overall.

JaBier (8253) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2017
On tap at the taproom on 2/3/17. Pours dark brown with a bit of red; thick beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, tartness and dark fruit. Malty flavor giving way to cherry and raisin with caramel and chocolate accents before a sour, malty finish. Reminds me slightly of Chunga’s Old Bruin (with less cherry influence).
