definitely the lighter side of the oud bruin genre, much more lemony lacto than dark malt in here. there is almost no roast character to the grain at all, i taste no chocolate malt either, more like a soured copper ale. smells and tastes about the same, less dynamic or intriguing than the other loverbeer stuff, but loaded with sourness. the oak is there in the nose, but it does little to temper the intense lactic acidity in the swallow. grain profile seems too light for the style, and too light for the texture, its maybe a summer oud bruin, if such a thing exists, but i think it lacks a little depth on the malt front, despite tasting delicious. it really pops on the palate too, effervescent carbonation makes it drink right down. lingering dried fruit and oak on the palate is neat for such a light bodied beer too. definitely the most sour beer ive had from loverbeer, but also the least unique. well made, but there are better examples of the style, especially at this price.

Draught in Rome during a visit in mid December 2013.

Reminded me of a Rodenbach in many ways: colour for a start, hazy though, then the aroma and taste. Maybe a little more sour, but it wasn't too sour, even for me (I'm not really a sour puss sort of drinker).

Pleased I had it, but one was enough.

Bought this one by mistake. I ordinarily would never pay $15.99 for an 11.2 oz beer!!!! Price aside, this is a very pleasant sour beer.

Pours a hazy copper color into a Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel flute. Shows a medium size very highly carbonated off white head that faes fast. Leaves no lacing on the glass.

Good aroma of sour cherries and a little oak.

Taste is pleasantly sour with a lot of cherry and oak in the flavor. Mouthfeel is good. High level of carbonation and a nice tartness.

I had this with fruit and cheese and it was a nice complement to the food. The price is the only negative factor here. I would not pay 15-16 dollars for this beer.
