Hazy amber color with off-white head that fizzes away completely. Aroma is sweet and tart with a slight acetic note, some tart fruits and a bit of sugar. Taste starts tart and yeasty with some sugar in the background, light vinegar and yeast notes. Medium body with low carbonation, quite dry mouthfeel. Quite interesting, more in the direction of a flanders red than a biere de garde.

Copper with very little carbonation, a very light haze and 4 fingers of glassy, off white head.

Smells of sour, fruity, oaked malts. Similar to others by the brewer.

Taste follows the nose. A very fine , well done sour.

Medium, dry brew with acidic and tannic drying qualities. Little carbonation.

Got at Oppermans in Saginaw, MI, drank in St-Bruno-De-M near Montreal, Quebec, Oct 8 2016. Great brew, but it's a sour, not BDG.

For the price I paid this should have been absolutely phenomenal.
