A: deep brown, tinged with red, quickly dissipating head. Fine, persistent, sheeting lacing.
S: sour, fruity, medicinal
T: dominantly sour, slightly bitter, malt/citrus
M: thin-medium body, sour bite
O: Not particularly enjoyable. Sour, on the watery side for a dark beer ... it feels like there's just something missing. I've heard it compared to champagne ... and I guess if you want a beer glass of middling champagne, this works.

750 mL bottle poured into flute glass.

A - Surprising lack of murkiness and cloudiness. Ruby brown with a finger of off white head that dissipates somewhat rapidly.

S - Cherry and vinegar. It definitely smells tart and sour.

T - A big pucker punch of tart cherry and a bit of sour apple. The sweet and sour combo really works well with the cherry and apple.

M - Light-to-moderate body with high carbonation. The carb really makes the sour cherry pop on your tongue.

O - An outstanding sour from Rodenbach. Great puckering pour in a good way, letting the sweet/sour/tart cherry dominate the palate.
