4.3/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours pinkish/red, white head, spotty lace, wisps on top. Nose is citrus fruit bursting through up front mixed with a nice level of sour lacto and berries. Taste is lip-puckering fruity sour, tart raspberries, oak, and light lacto. Light body, good carbonation, tart finish.

Really nice fruit-based sour that could quite possibly be my favorite from Brugge. I would love to have this one again, alas, I actually got the last pour from the keg. Hopefully it will be on-tap next time I stop by, but not sure how much of this was made (or will be made).

On tap at Brugge

A - A ruby red color that almost reminds me of darker grapefruit juice. Hazy with trails of carbonation trailing up the sides. A small white head leaves foam down the sides

S - Raspberries, tart jolly rancher, farmhouse funk. Smells rather tart

T - Red raspberry with lemon and a tart almost atomic warhead and smarties like flavor. There is a slight vinegar in the end that almost makes you want to pucker. There also manages to be a slight musty farmhouse funk that comes in near the end. Very sour throughout but never too over done as the agave nectar helps keep it from being too strong. As it warms up it becomes slightly sweeter as the agave becomes more prominent

MF - Medium body with heavy carbonation that comes through near the end that helps brings the tart flavors. It went well with the rest of the beer

O - What an amazing sour from Brugge. Wonderfully sour and funky without overpowering. Loved this one!
