14oz pour on-tap at bier markt mississauga

a: a very gorgeous clear ruby red with about a finger of off-white frothy head

s: really sour vinegar up front, but underneath that is a blend of woody notes and tart fruits, mainly cherries

t: follows the nose. tart to begin with, but leads quickly into fruity notes -- cherries, slight tart apples, berries, even some vinous qualities. the oak flavours add a dimension of complexity, working really well with the fruit tastes. no alcohol whatsoever. dry finish

m: medium-bodied with medium-to-high prickly carbonation, but it's kind of creamy. i love this mouthfeel

o: what an absolute delight of a beer. it's sour, fruity, tasty, and refreshing. i'm glad to have had the opportunity to taste this, and i'll definitely have this again in the future if i ever see it

A- Deep, amber-like in appearance with a lovely, frothy head that lingers for a bit.

S-At first, an aroma of vanilla develops into a more complex bouquet of oak-like fruitiness, perhaps of grapefruit or passion-fruit.

T- Complex notes of oak, vanilla, and passion fruit combine with perfectly balanced acidity. A clean, deeply refreshing beer with an intense serious of flavors.

M- Delightful, complete texture. Medium-bodied and very refreshing. Indeed, it is easy to guzzle this beer if one is not careful.

O- Probably my favorite beer in the world; certainly my favorite of this style. I have been fortunate to try some of the vintage examples from Rodenbach, which are worth the effort to obtain.
