I generally don't like sour Belgian beers, but this one was exceptional, literally. Deep, fruity, and complex.

A delicious, dependable sour. Pours dark brown, with a ruby hue. Acidity, sour tart, cherries, lots of dark fruit and malt complexity. Brown sugar underneath. Slight vinegar. Just delicious.
