A - Clear pale yellow, bubbly. Abundant head settled to a thin layer with some lacing.
S - Slightly sweet but tart like a chardonnay. Fresh vegetation. Some definite clean wood and funk present, interesting. Almost a sharp cheeselike aroma.
T - Sour tartness hits hard and fast along with a white grape and apple rind, giving way to a variety of subtle complex sensations. Clean wood plank, Green pepper, lettuce, baguette crust, a sort of meaty earthyness along with a little cheese & dank earthyness too. Light apricot, fresh sourdough, lemon rind, lime leaf. Bubblegum, curry leaf and yeast flavors ramp up as it warms.
M - Dry and a little prickly with the carbonation, not unlike wood on the tongue! Finishes very clean.
O - Very interesting, likely an excellent meal compliment but definitely a conversation piece at least. Best enjoyed slowly and with friends.

A - Pours a golden orange with a two-finger foamy white head. Light sticky lacing.

S - Aromas of green apples, white vinegar, and a light barnyard funk.

T - Lots of tart green apples throughout the flavor. A touch of acidity and vinegar in the finish.

M - Light bodied with high carbonation. A nice drying mouthfeel.

O - A very nice readily available sour. Very crisp and refreshing.

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.
