4.04/5 rDev +5.2%
Poured from a 11.2oz bottle into an Affligem goblet (probably around 0.3 l).
Appearance- Nice amber/brown. One finger head that dissipated in about 30 seconds leaving a small white rim around the top of the beer.
Smell- Cherry, apple, raspberry. Yeast and some malt.
Taste- Similar to the smell. Definantly some yeast and malt mixed with oak. Raspberry and cherry flavors come through. Not overly sour. Very nice aftertaste of fruit that lingers for a while.
Mouthfeel- Reasonably carbonated. Sits in the mouth for a while imparting flavors. Goes down very smooth. Very refreshing.
Overall- A great beer for people who want to get into sours but are hesitant to try the extremes. It's not overly sour, but it's got a nice sweetness to balance it. Very refreshing Flemish Sour.

4.55/5 rDev +18.5%
A: Very nice head. Small bubbles. Pour slowly.
S: Astringent and very fruity. Very enjoyable as a stand alone night cap.
T: Cherry and deep fruits cut through the sour flavor profile. Very smooth finish for a sour beer.
M: Good layered mouthfeel. Finish is where flavor profile enhanced.
O: Not just a novelty. Worth drink as stand alone. Very nice.
