From the brewery: "Cuvee is an ale of mixed origin like many Belgian breweries used to make. The production process is nearly the same as for the Kriek, the difference being that no cherries are added. It's a naturally acidified ale in which we try to reach the perfect balance between sweet and sour. This amber-coloured ale contains 7% vol. Alc. and can age really nice."

It looks like a lambic or geuze, but is a bit darker with slightly more foam on it. The taste and smell are also like a lambic or geuze, but the sourness is somewhat milder, probably caused by the blending with a flemish old brown beer. I was not a fan of sour beer in the beginning, but this beer has me started to appreciate the sourness.

This has become a go-to beer recently for me...
When?
When I don't quite want to break the cellar for Cantillon but I still want a very drinkable sour... This goes half way and is oh so drinkable. It says half pale ale half sour and is.
Only downside is the 7%... If only it were 5.
Cheers!

Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows elderflower, funky barnyard notes, light malt, unripe plums. Lovely.
Flavours focus on a delicious tartness, a little oak, light elderflower and lemon rind.
