750ml corked and caged. Bottled on 29 June 2012 and poured into my La Chouffe tulip glass.

On the label it is called a Sour Ale and says that it can be aged up to 10 years.

The 1st time I tasted this beer was on tap during our tour at Brouwerij De Molen in October 2012. My initial impression was that of a souped-up Rodenbach Grand Cru (Flemish Red Ale). I liked the beer so much at that time that I purchased a few bottles to bring home, including to one I’m having now.

A: This beer poured a hazy brownish-orange with a 1 finger off white head which left a thin lacing on my glass.

S: The nose included berries/cherries, leather, wood, funk and barnyard aromas with a hint of sweet and sour.

T: The taste of this brew starts off tart with some sweetness to balance it out. Like with the nose, I picked up some berries/cherries as well as some woody notes. The tartness and funkiness of this beer made you feel very refreshed and wanting more. It finished on the dry side.

M: The body was light to medium light and had a low level of carbonation level.

It will be interesting to see what a few years of aging of my other bottle will add to this beer.
