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!

Hoarders Society 2013 bottle.

The beer is hazy and amber/brown hues with perhaps hints of crimson. Small, wispy head that quickly fades with a hiss. Aromas of tart cherries, lactic funk, oak. The flavor is more of the same. Sour cherries and an intense puckering finish. Acetic and bold. Overall pretty good, though best shared a few ways.
