Served in a snifter glass.
A: Reddish almost looking like ruby red grapefruit juice but with a lot more ruby. Slightly hazy, not much head with bit of lace here and there.
S: Wheatiness bubble-gum-clove hints with a acidic aroma of sour grapes.
T: Sour Sour! but good sour, very tart with a puckering first sip. This is almost overpowering at first, but it really grows on you, and after a few drinks you can sort out the other belgian hints here and there.
M: Crisp medium-light body that's very refreshing.
O: I opted for the black after this one. If it were a bit more calm I would have gotten another one, but if you just want one really tart-refreshing bier go for this one.
Serving type: on-tap

On draft at Brugge
Pours cloudy reddish pink with a finger of white fluffy head that eventually fades into a ring.
Aroma: Sour berries with a little wheat tang. Nice but nothing over the top complex.
First sip leaves me very disappointed after all the good things I've heard about this beer. A little tart berry up front, but a big sweet middle section makes me think this beer is supremely under-attenuated. Most of the sour comes from a medicinal vineger taste. Finishes with a bit of oak, but not very dry at all. A complete mess.
Medium bodied with at least good carbonation to accentuate what sour is there.
One of my biggest disappointments in a while after hearing raves on this one. My friend who is local to Broad Ripple told me this beer changed since they started brewing it in house. I can only hope so because this was a complete under attentuated mess that I struggled to even get halfway through.
