This beer poured a mysterious hazy brown with a minimal head. I didn't quite know what to expect from this Old Flemish Brown, but I figured it would be distinctive. What I found was an extremely complex ale without the usual heaviness and thick mouthfeel. Vinous and full of more fruits than I can elaborate on, this brown was a revelation. As others have noted the sourness is the initial impression, but this recedes as other flavors explode on the palate. A cherry wine always comes to mind as a drink Flemish Browns and this is no exception. The sourness accentuates the intense fruitiness without overwhelming. Finishes tart and quick. Too much to handle for more than a few goblets though.
Serving type: on-tap

No bottling date that I can find.
A: Pours a dark reddish-brown. Very tall, very frothy light brown head. Head settles down eventually with only a little dot or two of lacing here and there. Good retention.
S: Dark fruits and berries. Light acetone. Floral.
T: Mild lactic sourness with floral flavors. Fruity in general and throughout, but nothing I can specifically place other than apples. A brief hit of sourness in the finish. Somewhat dry aftertaste, like dried apple slices.
M: Medium bodied, smooth and dry.
O: Very interesting brew. Floral and fruity in general. Crisp and refreshing - exceptionally so. Tart and sour here and there but nothing super overpowering. Nicely varied, really.
