Bottle 750ml: Clear, deep brown with slight red hue. Great thick white heat. Sour, very clean, malty and bright. Lifted. Caramel and old oak. Sour red fruit. Intense. Leesy. Off dry, sour, not bitter. Medium weight long, fine and acid. Elegant. Layers of flavor. Wonderful balance. Citrus and pomegranate. Sour beers still need to be clean and this does it.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2016 I love the flavor of this beer. Slightly sour, yet sweet with a fruity wine like experience. Refreshing palate. Slight funk in aroma. Just so taste.

Pours dark brown tinted red with a tan head. Light malty aroma with some fruity tartness. Flavor is a nice sour over a solid malt backbone with a strong caramel finish.

Let me start by saying that this is my first Flemish Sour Ale. I have to say I thouroughly enjoyed it. This beer smells like vinigar with sugar plum mixed in. Taste is vinigary and sweet as well. I tasted cherries, raisins and alot of carbination. It reminds me of sparkiling wine, very dry finish with notes of fruit and of course vinigar, but it also very thin. I must give a big thanks to Mike (Sprinkle) from Crown Liqour for suggesting this beer. I would like to try more Flemish’s too

Strong sour apple smell with some funk. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a thick persistent buff head with tight bubbles. Big sour flavors of turpentine, floral notes with some balancing sweetness. A lingering finish, medium carbonation and dry mouthfeel. Really interesting.

330ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a deep ruby brown colour with a small head that reduces into a ring. I get fruity notes on the nose. Aromas of rhubarb, raspberries,, dark cherries and oak. Complex fruity taste matches the aroma. Sweet up front and finishes with a well balanced sour finish. Best sour I’ve had so far.

Appearance is identical to chery pepsi. Nose is malt vinegar and charred oak. Flavours is cola sweet with marachino cherries and cabernet franc grapes. As it warms a horse hair appears with more fruit flavours, namely raspberry and cassis.

11.2oz Bottle. Appearance is brownish color with red hue with medieum silky, off-white head. Aroma is vinegar and fruit. Taste is tart at the outset with plenty of sour and earthen funk before fading into a constellation of fruit flavors including cherry and raspberry. Palate is medium-bodied, smooth texture, soft carbonation, and a tart finish.

Well, you can tell it's a sour from the vinegary aroma. Looks appealing to drink with it's dark nut brown colour tinged with ruby. Nice head that fades to lacing. I'm drinking it from a Chimay glass (heresy!) and it certainly packs a punch with me. It's a good sour with plenty of sweetness to offset it. Bit of cherry in there too. Knew I'd like this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
