Very bland. I didn't know what to expect with this one. But I've had quite a few sours now - of various styles, including Flanders & Flemish Reds, Browns, etc. This one didn't have much flavor to speak of, no tartness, not very sour. Sort of like a flat soda without the sweetness. I actually only got through about 1/3 of my tulip, and I laid it on the arm of my couch, and it actually spilled over on top of me and my couch cushions, and I didn't feel too bad about it. I won't be buying this one again.

A: A deep red brown in color, hazy, with a light tan head on top.

S: Tart and acidic, but fairly mildly so. Dark berries, and plums round out the smell with a touch of apple cider vinegar. Raspberries and blueberries mingle with the Belgian yeast character in the finish. Lovely.

T: Sweet and tart at the same time. There is a nice mix of acid and dark fruits. This almost drinks a little more like a Belgian dark with some light funk. Sweet and smooth with just a little edge.

M: Medium in body. The carbonation is fine, and a little more than medium. The finish is slightly tart and drying.

O: Overall a very enjoyable beer. Good flavor, and tastes like it was the easiest thing in the world to make. Smooth, succulent and enjoyable.
