Good sour fruit flavors, cherries, maybe green apple, and grapes. I did not pick up anything from the wood. The finish is very nice with lingering flavors of grape juice..

My experience with all other Petrus offerings has resulted in them becoming my benchmark for sours. This did not go there. But I think it was not supposed to. As a brown, it really balanced the malty sweetness with what Flanders tends to bring with sour. This beer is ripe for pairing with hearty stew.

Fairly underrated brew. The aroma does not nearly match the flavor. Melanoidins, sweet, toasted bread, caramel, dominate. Flavor is fairly dark malty and sweet, but there's a nice tart, lactic finish to contrast.

Appearance: Brown and cloudy - a dirty beer. Light color head quickly rises and dies away. Some lacing

Smell: Fairly light sour, yeasty, bready, barnyard smells.

Taste: Not too sour, acidic, some sweetness, apple, not much complexity. The malt and other flavors came through better as it warmed up. A somewhat dry finish reminiscent of an apple wine.

Mouth feel: Beer is well carbonated, medium bodied.

Overall: A pretty good standard sour. Mildly sour, but not very complex in flavor. OK at the right price point, but I would generally seek out other choices of this style.
