Man. If only all of this beer were as good as the fragrance advertises. I mean, it's still a good beer. But the nose on this thing just screams Flemish. The flavor is amazing. Vinegar sour tones are definitely there. I get minute vanilla hints once in a blue moon. The woody tones are interesting as well. And consistent. You know the type I mean (if you've had some experience with the style.) This seems a purists interpretation of the style. Carries all of the characteristics of the style that you would expect to find, but usually wouldn't, even in Belgian productions. A difficult style to pull off. And this one seems to be doing it right. The folks at Arbor Brewing should be proud of this one. Glad I got a chance to try it out.
