Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale. Flanders Oud Bruin. Brouweirj Van Steenberge N.V., Belgium. 5.5% ABV.
Served chilled from a bottle into a brandy snifter. Pours a deep red-mahogany color with a one finger foam head. Smells are of dark fruits, mostly cherry, with a tart aroma as well. Medium cabonation and body. Taste is of dark cherry, and is very tart and sour. Aftertaste is oaky with a slight sour funk to it. Overall a nice and affordable sour, and one that I enjoyed much more than the Rodenbach.
