Very nicely done sour in the Flemish style, with a just a kiss of vanilla and cognac. Smooth, a little acidic pucker but not pungently sour. Elegant really, with very nice depth, but on the relatively subtle side, particularly on the nose. Light and digestible body, highly drinkable, and outright delicious.

A joy to have this drop to be honest after the big wraps and so on, on pour its s murky brown hue with a creamy one finger head and not much lacing, smell is wow cognac mainly along with funky oak and raisins I could smell this all day, mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and the taste is wow its such a balanced sour with cognac on the start followed by a funky Brett fest, raisins,, a touch of toffee, grapes and finished with a dry oakiness and overall sublime wish this was easier available cheers.
