Served in a snifter, beer is brown, mild haze, thin broken large bubbled head, that sticks to the glass.

Aroma is sweet, mild lactic, a little vinegar but not much.

Beer is medium in body, leads off with this nice sweetness and finishes with this mild brightness and succinic sourness, almost tart, like a sweet version of La Folie.

On-tap at Churchkey for their La Folie Deconstruction. This is the one year old version of the base beer used to blend La Folie. The Mid and Oude are eventually blended with this to create the sour we all know and love.

A: The pour is much more hazy and dark than La Folie, without head save for a few bubbles resting on top. 3.5

S: The aroma is slightly sour, slightly sweet and malty. Much more focused on the malt. It smells pretty light. 3

T: Caramel dominates the taste surprisingly. Sadly, this surprise is bad. The sour part is really hidden, this really does just taste like a sour that needs to...sour. 3

MF: Heavier body than La Folie, medium overall, with a low carbonation. It's not really that drinkable because I want it to be La Folie and it just isn't. 3

O: This was $4.5 for the 4oz, which is only worth it to try the deconstruction. I see what this is going to become and I see what it is, I just don't think I'd get it again. 2.5
