refreshing and tangy, with a fluctuating (im pretty sure), but well hidden abv. one of the original examples of the style in my opinion, one of the best. dark red color to it and a lively tan head with excellent lace and retention. it smells puckery but more on the vinegar side of lacto than the citric side, which is fine in this instance because its balanced by sweeter amber malt and a nice buttery nutty front end that only eventually and reluctantly gives way to the acidity. clean and bright in feel though, shaking its weighty start and finishing really quite expressive and delicate for what it is. way more drinkable than the grand cru, with notes of dried fruit and molasses still in this one, but its so much more approachable, especially for the uninitiated. top quality stuff, but everything from rodenbach is.
