Notes / Commercial Description:
We debuted Griffon Bruxellois late in 2012 at a few of our events and it was quite a hit. This dark, sour ale was aged in oak barrels on cherries, giving it an incredible fruit flavor, balanced by the roasted malt and lactic tartness. We must admit, this bottle-conditioned beer didn't turn out quite as carbonated as we were hoping for, but it is still an incredible beer, 100% worthy of our high standards to be sold, served, shared and enjoyed!

Bottle to Bruery tulip.

A - Dark amber/brown colour. Opaque. Only a few loosely scattered bubbles are present. Carbonation appears to be very low.

S - Acidic tartness with oak and sour cherry aromas and a big bready sweetness.

T - A very sharp sourness hits the tongue right away with an almost vinegar like feel. A big oak flavour and sour cherries show up mid-palate with the bready sweetness and a tartness lingering in the finish.

M - Medium body. Dry. Light carbonation that was much more present than the pour indicated.
