As close to a perfect sour as it can get. This is rich and dry with a great raspberry, green apple sourness. The oak aging cuts the harshness of the sour and lends a well balanced roundness to the beer. Honestly this is one of the best sours I've ever had...and I lived next to Cascade

Poured from bottle into a Piraat tulip glass.

A: Pours a 2 finger off-white head initially that settles in a minute into a little less than a 1 finger head, but retains well. Brickish tawny red color.

N: Full of sour black cherry, barnyard barrel funk, and plenty of earthy/herbal complexity.

T: Full-bodied (13%) but very focused and balanced from start to finish. The beer lacks any "hard edges" or significant off putting heat and has a good amount of acidity. Finishes dry with earthy/herbal complexity... like dried rosemary and tree bark.

O: An excellent example of a Flanders Oud Bruin. I will definitely be picking up a couple more of these if I can get my hands on them!
