5/5  rDev +26.3%

750 from 2010 drank Dec 14.
Quite possibly the best sour brown I have ever had!
Rich, fruity, everything Flemish brown but done so well it is just ridiculously delicious.
Compared to Rodenbauch 2010 Vintage Brl-144 but even tastier and more complex.
SOMETHING is going ON in Switzerland!
Not cheap but for good reason!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750 mL bottle (capped, I believe) into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. No identifiable date.

A: Dark ruby-colored body. Opaque in the glass. 1.5 finger tan head that seems dense for the style. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: Tart citric/lactic acid. Cherry. Lighter raisin. Faintly soapy. Soy. A bit of cacao.

T: Citric acid sour with a touch of vinegar/acetic acid. Mild, partially balancing, sweetness in the middle. This trails out to a dry finish with an certain astringent bite. Lingering lactic acid, lemon-type sour on the palate. Burns a bit at the back of the throat. Fairly damn sour. Minimal alcohol.

M: Moderate carbonation with a medium body. Smooth, with substance and a light effervescent attack.

O: Solidly sour with some nice layers.

Prost!

Tart, vinegar-like aroma with an odd funk bordering on partially digested dark fruits. Berry, cider-like, sour flavor well balanced with a mild dark fruit sweetness. Hint of oak and cocoa. Dry feel. Sticky on the lips. Near perfection all around.
