Review: Bios Vlaamse Bourgogne (Monk’s Cafe)

A Sour Ale
 brewed by
Brouwerij Van Steenberge

Ertvelde, Belgium                                                                 

ABV: 5.5%

Purchased this one under the label Monk’s Cafe. Pours a dark ruby color with a nice head. Be sure to pour it into a snifter. It smells a bit like sulfur (ok, lactic) at first but as you settle in with it it gets a slight bit like really ripe fruit. Head stays in place at a decent level as you sip with some nice lacing. Tastes at first like a sweet vinegar. It is really, really refreshing but it kills your palate after a bit. It is nice and tart as a sour should be but perhaps not tart enough. I would have also liked to pull out the dark fruit flavors easier.

My score: 3.5

(Editor’s note: I am going to start adding more information, or a link to more information, at the top of the review from now on. This may include ABV, sizes the beer is sold in or a number of other facts and stats. If you have anything to add post it in comments. Thanks)
