A: ruby red. Hazy. Small off-white head.

S: sweet. Large berry notes. Vinegar.

T: tart. Oak. Cherry. Lingering tartness. Sour. Vinegar.

M: high carbonation. Medium-light body. Puckering. On the dry side? It's difficult for me to tell if this is slightly sweet, or dry; because of the tartness.

O: fantastic sour. Complex flavors that are balanced very well. Will buy again if I am lucky enough to find it.

Sampled from a 750 bottle purchased at The Beer Dispensary in Apex, NC. It was recommended to me by a friend in Belgium. 2012 with 8 notched out.

A - Deep copper with a hazy finish and a limited white head. A slow but steady rise of fine bubbles.

S - Wonderful tart and sour notes with some additional depth of oak, fruit and spices. Very inviting.

T - Loads of sour/tart flavors with great maturity, depth and variation. It's intense but not biting or harsh in any way. You get something different in every sip. The 11% alcohol is incredibly well hidden.

M - Good body with good substance yet it flows smoothly. A low to moderate carbonation.

O - A complex and intriguing beer! So glad I tried it.
