On tap at Monk's Café, Zwanze Day 2013. First of all, this is not a tripel. Not at all. Admittedly, I don't know jack about sours, but this seemed much more like a lambic than any of type of abbey style designation (dubbel/tripel/quad). Color was somewhere between straw yellow and lavender.
The two most immediate and pronounced flavors were vinegar and white grapes. There was also a berry-like tartness. Very little carbonation and the mouthfeel was soft and creamy, which was surprising given the beer's tartness. An earlier reviewer noted that the smell was similar to a chardonnay, which I think is spot on. Actually, this beer shares a lot of characteristics with white wine.
Overall, a pleasant, interesting brew, but not outstanding.
Serving type: on-tap
