Brewed in March 2012 and reviewed in February 2013. Poured from a bottle into a Bell's tulip. The pour is very pretty. It's clear coppery gold with just a touch of haze, some nice effervescence, and a nice frothy head with nice clumpy lacing. The nose tells me this beer has some nice acidity. I get vinous notes of apples and white wine.
The beer has a medium body, a firm feel, and lip-smacking acidity. Nice crisp refreshing notes of sour green apples, lemon, herbal tea, and a faint sweetness all meld together into a very drinkable beverage. There is a nice vanilla oakiness at mid-palate that carries through the finish. The acidity makes this beer very appetizing.
Overall, a very well-crafted and enjoyable beer. Listed here (for now) as a Belgian Strong Pale Ale, but really more like a Flemish Red Ale with a few of the same flavors as a Belgian Tripel. Very glad I picked this up. Perfect sipper on a lazy Saturday afternoon.

Cloudy orange-amber with little head to speak of. Interesting aroma...tart funkiness coating toffee-like malts, fruit, cherries, and earthy must. I coax up some acetic notes with a deep sniff. Flavor is tart, again with a solid malt presence for balance. Caramel, cherries, spicy wood, berries, vanilla, slightly phenolic on the back end. Body leans towards the fuller side of medium, and finishes dry and tart. This started out seeming like it was going to be more of a slow-sipper, but became dangerously drinkable and refreshing.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a wine glass.
Golden orange. Light light head.
Smell is incredible. Bright fruit. Tart and funky. Lambic. Deep and complex.
Mmmm. Beautiful balsamic vinegar. Light fruit. Vaguely briney. The aftertaste is...wheaty? Lightly dry and vivacious. Mouthfeel is sparkling, clean, and mineraly.
Great sour. Highly recommended. God bless Hair of the Dog and the bartender at Grape & Grain who gave me this.
