Franzen (688) - SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2017
Cherries, stable, overripe apples hints of tobacco. Nice tartness but a bit too sweet. It is nice in small amounts but due to the sweetness half a bottle is plenty

emincems (128) - TURKEY - DEC 12, 2017
Famous example of my favorite style; mixed fermentated Flemish Red. It pours dark maroon-brown with medium sized tan head. Foam is not long-lasting, but it leaves a cover on top. Vinous aroma. Sour berry and plum, oak and molasses are on the nose. Taste is moderately sour. Red fruits, wood, slight vanilla and toasted malts are mixed with acidic sourness. Dry and slightly sour finish with soft astringency. Medium bodied and softly carbonated. Delicious and highly drinkable.

I've seen this beer for a while in the LCBO, finally picked it to try. Although I'm not a big fan of sour ale, it is definitely worth a try. Had this one after a nice night at volleyball, watching the express footage of the Habs against St-Louis.
