330ml bottle poured into a pair of little 5oz sampler glasses for comparison with Rodenbach Grand Cru. My wife, tasting it blind, correctly picked out Rodenbach, and classifies Rodenbach as, "More complex, where this one is more punching you in the face with sourness." Bottle code, best by, or bottled on is, whatever it means, "15 13"

Pours clearish brownish red, little head. Smell is tart and fruity.

Taste is hella sour. I can see why my wife used "punch in the face." It has just barely enough sweetness and fruitiness to back up the sourness, so it's not unpleasant at all, it's quite tasty.

Mouthfeel is dry and smooth. Overall, this is a very good beer, but I still (slightly) prefer Rodenbach Grand Cru.
