4.08/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color yielding a sudsy white 1.5 finger white head. Very little head retention. Decent lacing.

S: Green apple cider vinegar. A little barnyard funk and sweet hay. The nose really takes me to the middle of an apple barn on a cool fall day.

T: Acetic sourness across the palate. Mellowed out well with the oak from the barrels. Fruity green apple and quince with a surprising kreik-like finish. Very tart, but overwhelming. The funk is there, but is quite pleasant. Some slight bittering hops present themselves which is unique.

M: Thin with moderate to high carbonation. Easy drinkability.

O: I rarely associate a beer's smell with a place or event but this one does it spot on for me. I am not a big fan of the "sour-styles", but even I think this one is pretty daggum good. This one will definitely be enjoyed 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.
