A – Golden yellow. Reminds me of Thatcher’s Gold cider. Resolute and champagne-like in its clarity.

S – Citrus scent is of lime. Sour green apple. Alsace Riesling.

T – Crisply tangy and vinous following the nose. You know, this may not be the finest sour in the world, but it stills amazes me that the brewer can achieve such fruitiness and tartness without the contribution of actual fruit. Tastes like unripe white grapes in a good way.
M – I’ve always said that this beer reminds me a lot of champagne and I’ll stand by that. The fizziness is perhaps not as pronounced and it probably has a sturdier body, but nonetheless there is a similarity.

O – Complexity may not be the central characteristic of this beer, but the tanginess, tartness and white wine flavours imparted to this beer from its oak aging are clean, crisp and neatly done. This is a beer elegant and assured in its simplicity, and one which I hope will serve as an excellent launch point for exploring sour and wild ales moving forward.

On draft at Monk's Cafe in Philly. I tried this head-to-head with the Monk's Flemish Sour Ale. Although this was a very good Oud Bruin, it paled in comparison the the Monk's version. Very session able and may have received a higher rating if I had it on a different session but much weaker in taste and higher in alcohol. Basically the light version of the Monk's Flemish with higher ABV. Personally, I rate based on flavor, not for speed of inebriation.
