a really neat edition of this, i think with much softer edges than the more famous rouge, and really neat to find it on draft. its still got a chestnut brownish red color, maybe a little lighter than its sister, and with a creamy rich head on it, thicker than i am used to seeing in wild beer, rising high like a belgian. immediate pucker in the nose is mirrored by mature bretty funk, this isnt all lacto and flemish red vinegar sourness, which i think the original rouge sort of defines. i get some immediate red wine and cherry to this, although it remains unfruited from what i understand. lots and lots of oak, a sherry and vermouth note to this, a richness from the grain that goes well beyond the normal lambic mash, but a similar sort of woody sour rustic vibe. so smooth in feel, surprising for a sour, some lemon, some toasted oak, hay and straw and wheat, golden raisin and more sherry, its beautiful and refined and complex, more advanced and high end tasting to me than the original, a worthy beer to say the least, maybe my favorite i have had from these guys...
