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.

From a 330 ml foil-capped bottle (brewed in 2011) into a tulip.

A-The head is huge (three-plus fingers) and creamy to start. Retention is OK, not great for the height, but good for the style. The brew is murky, nearly opaque, and reddish in color. Looks like cranberry tea.

S-The aroma is pretty tart, verging on outright sour. I get decent acidity, tart cherries, lots of dry oak, mild earthy funk, and a bit of vanilla. As the beer warms I get more earthy tobacco and leather flavor.

T-The taste has more funkiness and less tart flavors than the smell. I get a lot of dry oak, some earthy leather, as well as raisin tart cherry, and a slightly bitter, dry finish. Once the beer nears room temp, the acidity picks up and I get some lemon tartness. It is still pretty funky and dry, even close to room temp.

M-The feel is well carbonated, but medium to heavy for the style.

O-This is a pretty good take on an oud bruin. The oak is very obvious and this is a complex brew, but found it a little too malty and earthy when compared against the best examples of the style. The interesting thing was that despite the earthiness, the beer was still pretty acidic. Odd....anyway, a good beer but probably not worth the steep price.

A: Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a fair amount of tan head.

S: Lightly tart and sweet, notes of cherry and vinegar.

T: Somewhat bready grainy sweetness, leading into a tarter finish. The aftertaste is dry and pleasant.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation.

Overall, pleasant, and good, but probably too expensive for what it is for me to buy it again.
