SOUR.

I was disappointed with this beer, even though it was on tap. It was very watery, it almost tasted like a watered down red flanders ale. No good.

Pour a red beer. Some sour, lambic smell, a little bit of brett. Taste is not there. It is dry, and very watered down. It gives you a sense of the red flander beer, but not the right type. It is just to watered down. If you use your imagination, you can taste the lambic, but it is simply not worth it.

Maybe next year's batch will be better. Maybe JP need a better quality control.

Serving type: on-tap
