330ml brown bottle into tulip glass @ Redoak. 5% ABV. Pours a bronzed colour with a decent white head and lacing. There are notes of tart cherries, prunes, and sweet crystal-like malts on the nose and this is reflected on the tongue with a pleasant sour dryish finish that refreshes. It is medium bodied with a slick easy drinking mouthfeel. I was reminded of a Flemish red ale.
barman ruined this beer although i made it out. he poured it with the cup upright at redoak in Sydney, head was to big. a good note of cherry, nice and sour not over powering and easy to drink. it was not really a deep cherry color so it wasn’t to heavy in cherry. nice and sweet, its really all i can say for this beer.

Hazy reddish-brown. Thin, weak head. Oaky aroma is fairly vinous, with plums and cherries. Decent -smells like Flemish sour. Mild tartness carries mostlt a barrel note with a dash of acid, and lots of dark fruits. A clean but timid Flemish-style sour. Stew41 (2117) - Phuket, THAILAND - MAR 28, 2013
Very worthy attemp at a Flemish brown. Tangy and sour, not over the top, but the palate weight does drop off somewhat. Regardless, tasted blind you would pick this as the real thing. bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very dark amber with orange / red tinges down the side of the glass. All but the smallest of heads which disappears almosts as quickly as it appears. Aromas are somewhat muted and show lots of the base beer. Light caramel some light stone fruits and only the slightest hint of sourness. Perhaps a little short of the mark. Taste wise there is an initial sweetness followed by a restrained sourness on the finish. Some acetone starts to come through on the finish. Definately tastes better than the nose. Medium light mouthfeel.
