Poured into a snifter from a bottle.
A - Pours a light gold, forming a 1/2 inch white head of thin bubbles. Medium lace on the glass as the head fades.
S - Very tart aroma with a noticeable, but not overpowering, vinegar presence. Hard to seperate other aromas from the funk.
T - Very tart taste up front coats the palate, with fruit flavors, mainly sour cherries, coming though in the finish. Has almost a cider-like finish. Not much oak presence as expected. Nice and sour!
M - Lighter than medium mouthfeel. Very smooth with the tartness staying on the palate after the swallow. Good amout of carbonation.
D - This is one of the more "sour" Flanders, being more sour that vinegar IMO. Great flavor, drinkable body, and inviting aroma. One of the better sours available in my area. Will definitely buy again!

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.
Serving type: on-tap
