33cl bottle into a Duvel tulip. Thanks, Dan, for tossing this one my way.

A: Opaque dark brown body glows reddish-amber around the edges; 1-finger head of creamy ecru foam. Decent retention, nice lace. Attractive brew.

S: Primarily malty, with toffee, molasses, and dark fruit. Some acetic tartness is present, but sadly understated. A bit underpowered and uninspired.

T: A bit more vinegar-laden than the aroma, with cranberry-tinged bitterness following the sweet malt. Decent sweet/sour balance, but not terribly tasty. It does get significantly better as it warms, though, and in the end is rather pleasant. Still not great, but ok.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation. Delicate, bordering on watery.

O: This one had some character, but didn't quite come together. I'd take it over Duchesse any day, but there are far better options in the style.

Cheers!
