Brewery Van Steenburge, Belgium
Aroma: Sour notes, with a good malty backbone right up front. Lactic acid comes through as well.
Appearance: Deep brown in the glass, but shows mellow red-orange in front of a light. It has a strong carbonation, and put up a strong pale tan head that hangs around for a while.
Flavor: Very sour on the tongue, with a light sweetness on the finish. The heavy malts play through as well, dropping hints of prunes, blackberries and sour cherries.
Mouthfeel: Dry and puckerish on the palate, this brew shows a medium body. There are some really good tannins in this brew.
Overall Impression: This brew was exactly what I was expecting from Van Steenburge and a Flemish Sour Ale. The acids sit well with the malts. This brew would be great on a summer or late spring day, and I enjoyed mine with a fine Comacho cigar from Honduras.
