3.53/5 rDev -11.8%
Poured from a bottle into a small pilsner glass.
A: Dark brown with reds. Very pretty and deep color.
S: Smells of malty notes with hops and some yeast. A nice grape aroma.
T: Primarily a light malt body with a huge citrus and floral top. Prunes, grapes and raisin here. Spicy finish.
M: Smooth and crisp, not bitter and not boozy.
O: A fairly unique beer that is full of unique flavor. A bit too sour and sweet for me, but very different and I'm glad I tried it.

750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a tulip.
(A)- Pours a murky reddish mahogany color. Some off-white froth and lacing.
(S)- Bright aromas of cherry and raspberry and strawberry with the slightest dry oaky funk to it.
(T)- Slight oaky funk combined with a great dryness throughout. Great slightly tart vinegar and fruit kick and the end.
(M)- A nice carbonation level and balance. A very easy drinking/milder flanders.
(O)- This is a drinking Flanders. One of those you would always have a bottle on hand when you are in the mood for one. Milder, but shows more fruit than sour acidity. While I will say I prefer the grand cru, this is still quite good.

The beer comes in a murky copper brown.
The aroma is quite tart of unripen apples, cherries, cranberries, fig, red grape, a hint of oak, and sweet bready malt.
In the front, there’s a combination of apple and cranberry juice with hints of tartness, but that quickly subsides onto musty and funky red grapes. A gentle caramel and malt sweetness in the middle, then it dries off leaving that lingering funk and wood.
The front of the palate impresses, but that quickly goes away. A decent step behind the Grand Cru.
