Pours a cola colored ale with a fleeting brown top. Smells juicy with dark cherry and oak notes. The cherry in the nose is really nice and robust with just the right amount of fruity character mixed with earthy, tea like accents. The flavor is classic oude tart with a sour bite and flemish embodiments: acetic, cherry, cola, oak, tannins. The flavor is really nice. Medium bodied with reserved carb and an off dry finish. Really a fine beer.
Bottle courtesy of André. Hazy reddish brown pour with a small offwhite head. Vinegar, biscuit malts & sour cherry nose. Leather & soil. Heavy sour fruity taste. Round, tart mouthpuckering mouthfeel. Insanely sour! Tons of vinegar but once you get past the acid it has some fairly nice oxidised leather, fruit & wood characteristics. AdmiralVernon (1195) - SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2017

Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour hazy copper brown with moderate ecru head. Nose light tart, big cherry, with light barrel. Taste tart up front, then big cherry, tart cherry, maraschino cherry, and cherry pie filling. I’m not a sour fan but this one is pretty good. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2016
