Took me a lot longer to get to this than it should have.
A - Blood red, darker than regular Rodenbach, but just as heady. Crystalline.
S - Sharp tart vinegar leads, a twinge of alcohol and oak, and cherries.
T - Wow. Thank jeebus this was created. Sharp tartness makes your tongue stand on end at the beginning, but quickly changes to sweet tastes of cherry juice, oaky vanilla and earth. Slight bitterness and very slight alcohol flavor, but to me, this helps accentuate the other qualities and puts a nice little "bow" on top. Incredible.
M - Very bubbly, light and clean. Super, super refreshing and cleansing.
O - I understand why people call this the best shelf sour you can buy. Would buy cases of this stuff next time I see it. An absolute gem, and a must-drink for any beer connoisseur.
