I had this a Borefts 2014. I remember that I was quite excited about the beer. Being used to the strong tartness of Cantillon brews, I was surprised to get this nose of quite typical geuze flavors, but more retrained than usually and combined with the scent of sweet plums. The beer tastes tart enough to qualify for the honorary title of "Oude" but with the fruitiness comes along pretty harmonic and drinkable. Like it!

Very good sour. Pours a reddish orange very hazy color with almost no head or head retention. Plenty of dark sediment at the bottom of the flute.

The key aspects of this beer are aroma and taste. A mixture of sweet dark fruit (the plums I guess) and a vinegary sourness that is prominent but not over done.

Mouthfeel is tart and crisp. I detected a little alcohol and some peppery spicing too.

If you want to call a tart slow sipper as "goes down easy", then this beer goes down easy.

Overall, an exceptional sour beer.
