As much as I appreciate the artistry and craft involved in making this beer, it was hard to drink. A sour beer of this caliber is no easier to drink than a fine scotch; sipping is the best way to approach. The color is a dull without being hazy, the nose a tart lactic, acidic burn. The taste followed the nose with a sour, acidic bile flavor masking the taste of malts and hops. Hints of vanilla, "greenness" and wood are undetectable under the acid burn. Sweet caramel and grain show up in the aftertaste and comes on after the sour acid fades away. The mouthfeel is as thin as would be expected, with a carbonated bite that helps the flavor along. All in all, this is a beer that I highly appreciate, and have no desire to drink again.

Poured into my DHF chalice.

A - Pours a honey/copper color. Poured rather cloudy and I was careful not to empty the dregs into the glass. Minimal white rocky head. Quickly disapates to a thin white layer. Some minimal white lacing. Average carbonation.

A - Sour, spice, faint sour milk, musty.

T - Sour, stomach acid pukey taste - quite a shock to the system, faint sweetness up front with strong sour in the finish.

MF - Fizzy and sharp on the palate.

O - Too sour for me. I like my flanders with a bit more sweetness for balance. A sipping beer. No swiling this brew.

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that for the most part is still there. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Oakey, sour, funky, sweet pale malts, chardonnay grapes, apples,

Taste: Tart, sour, bready, and bitter. Super pucker of a beer. Some oak and chardonnay grapes in there too.

Mouthfeel: A little smooth, pucker, chewy, a bit dry, low to medium carbonation, and light to medium bodied.

Overall: Wow, I might have to get more of these soon. Pretty solid beer.
