Bottle 6/5/15 home

Pours red. What else should it pour. The smell is actually faint. Almost kind of a date smell. Nothing really strong though.

The taste is a sour bomb followed by some cranberry and cherry. Very nice and well put together. Refreshing.

330ml bottle into snifter. best before "13 01 18". consumed on june 4, 2015

a: an absolutely gorgeous glowing, somewhat-transparent deep red. just under a finger of tan-ish head

s: toasted malt, vanilla, balsamic vinegary notes, sour red apples, tart cherries, cranberries, lovely wood presence

t: follows the nose. tart and fruity but backed by really nice toasted malt and vanilla oak notes. some bubblegum flavours too

m: light-bodied with prickly carbonation

o: a stellar sour ale. really starting to like these now

Bottle poured into cup. Maybe too old in the bottle at a bottling date of January 2014. Need to taste on tap to determine if ratings change.

L- Transluscent brown with nice lacing.

S- Huge malt vinegar nose with tart cherry.

T- Totally not balanced like the other sours I so enjoy. This one has no malt undertone. The sour overtakes the whole beer as if it were an 'Imperial Sour'.

F- Nice carbonation with a sharp pucker from sour.

O- I'd try again on tap to determine if that improves the experience, but not looking for this one in bottle again until it's proven I had a so-so bottle. Too many other great sours to linger on one sour cherry.

Draft. Poured a dark brown cherry red color. Opaque and allowed light to filter in. Nice half finger of head. Smells of cinnamon, cherries, funk and malts. Taste is much the same. Sour at the front end with fruit, mainly cherries, on the back end. Funk is mild. Pleasant sour. I'm not a hide sour fan but I liked this one a lot. Malts, fruit, cinnamon, what's not to like?

Arrives deeply red with brown throughout. Lovely light tan head, creamy and sadly short-lived.
Smell is tart and funky with notes of malt and fresh fruit.
Taste is amazingly similar with mainly tart fruitiness and funk with a bit of malt behind.
Nearly medium bodied, very lightly effervesced. Tangy from the get-go. Yea, Belgium.
