A wonderful Belgian Flanders sour ale. I wish I had the larger portion of the bottle I shared. Pours a lovely dark burgundy color, minimal head. Cherry notes and a slightly woody/barrel quality in the aroma and flavor. Slightly tart and appropriately lactic finish accentuated by the carbonation. Very nice, and don't be afraid of the yeast sediment in the dregs if you're into that sort of thing.

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a stemless snifter. Smells like I combined my trip to Cantillon with that to Neuhaus. Tastes like a great young gueze with a drop of old Rasputin. Great find for $5 at new beer distributors in NYC.

$5.99 for 11.2 oz at Arrow Wine. Poured into a small stemmed flute.

Generally a clean tasting beer with a bit of cherry. Some sherry-like qualities without the high ABV. 3.75

A – Pours a brown, slightly reddish but clear with almost zero head. What little there was is tan. Coats the glass. Alcohol legs. Good body visually. 3.5

S – Sweet and sour, lactic, sour cherry, black cherry. 4

T – Malty sourness but not pucker sour, zero identifiable bitterness, woody/oaky/lactic finish. 4

MF – Medium body, slightly sweet, a little creaminess in the finish. 4.5
