I have meant to try this beer for far too long, but I think the price turned me off for some time... especially when I had a number of Flemish Red and Oud Bruins that satisfied me already.
A: Deep brown and quite hazy. The head topping is quite sparse and dwindles away to very little in no time. A second fill does leave a collar of lace behind.
S: There's no hiding that there's acetic acid here... the beer just smells of some sourness, and that's quite promising. A little musty--some damp wood, perhaps, and I swear I pick up on something slightly citrus-like. I know it's not dish-soap because I hand wash these glasses myself, and don't use any aromatic soaps for cleaning!
T: It's certainly tart... a nice blend of that vinegar flavour with some yeasty funk and just a hint of fruitiness. This sets it aside from many others... often, there's a strong note of 'sour cherry,' and this beer is more earthy and musty. Slighly leathery. I'd go so far as to say that it leans towards lambic qualities.
M + D: Nice and tart... enough to bring out a bit of pucker from time to time. It has a character unique enough that it stands out from others, without straying too far from the style. I would be very curious to try this beer without the oak aging, as I don't think it really added much.
