A wonderful Belgian Flanders sour ale. I wish I had the larger portion of the bottle I shared. Pours a lovely dark burgundy color, minimal head. Cherry notes and a slightly woody/barrel quality in the aroma and flavor. Slightly tart and appropriately lactic finish accentuated by the carbonation. Very nice, and don't be afraid of the yeast sediment in the dregs if you're into that sort of thing.

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a stemless snifter. Smells like I combined my trip to Cantillon with that to Neuhaus. Tastes like a great young gueze with a drop of old Rasputin. Great find for $5 at new beer distributors in NYC.
