Monks Cafe Flemish Sour

Monks Cafe Flemish Sour, originally uploaded by adambarhan.

A: An opaque reddish-brown color with an red-tinted foam which quickly subsides.

S: Full of sour cherries, vinegar, and oak. Some hints of sweetness coming through the pungent and strong aromas.

T: The taste is quite similar to the smell. The oak flavor is very prominent, dark fruits too. The vinegar component is a somewhat muted, compared to the aroma. Overall, the beer is tart, but not overwhelmingly so not to be compared with American sours.

M: The beer is medium in body with a dry finish, and mild astringency. Dry

D: The flavors are good and well balanced, another sour that you could drink more than one. Comes in a four pack for right around $10 so a good deal too.
