Love. Love. Love this beer. I am usually not a fan of sweeter styles, but the balance of sweet and sour make this beer fantastic. My only problem with it, is its metallic aroma, with a hint of metallic in the finish. Very pleasant effervescent mouthfeel. Have only come across this once on draft, which is definitely better than in the bottle.

A: A deep ruby red with a slight head.

S: Dark sour cherries and apples

M: Mouthfeel is moderately light-bodied with decent carbonation. Creamy with a strong presence.

O: Flemish sour beers are always unique and interesting. This one is no exception.
