POOKA

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.

on-tap at the Brugge Brasserie

A- Mild coppery red
S - Red wine vinigar, tart stone seed fruits
T- Sweet and tart! I would say this is a bit less tart than your average sour, but still gives a nice pucker. I can't distinguish the fruit, but I would say tart cherries.
M- Easy to drink. Nice light carbination.
O- A nice, accessable sour. Not too sour to turn off the younger sour drinks, but enough to hold the attention of those who have kicked back a few sours.

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.
