Nose: dark cherries, sour apple, sweet tarts. Cordovan body with a thin beige head ..good retention and some lace. Mouth is thin with a nice tingle. Alcohol totally masked, hits sour, ends sweet, some raspberry, for sure some sweet-tarts, this is odd but i get a bit of beef fat (in a good way) then ending is pretty clean, after taste is light citrus. This is really pretty damn tasty. Would not be my regular drink but its a nice change of pace.

Had as Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale. Pours clear sepia with a thick, frothy and persistent beige head. Aroma yields tart and sour pomme and tropical fruit plus a hint of fresh malt. Flavor delivers tart cherry, sour fruity, subtle malty bits, a whisper of bitter hops. Texture provides good body and peppy fizz. Those lucky Belgian monks.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours reddish brown with a big fizzy light tan head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is tart and sour cherries with some woody cardboard and some acidity.
The flavor is sweet and tart sour cherries / raspberries with a little woody funk. The mouthfeel is light bodied and very watery.
Overall, an interesting sour. It's sweet, but not too much so. It is way too watery though.

pours a deep garnet with a giant rocky head and tons of chunky yeast in the glass and has big sheets of lace slide down the glass into that enormous beige head. The aroma is sour cherry candy, tart fruit preserves, and red wine vinegar. Nicely balanced sugary jammy preserves notes temper the vinegar acidic aroma. The taste has more sour cherry on top of a light brown sugar note, strawberries, tart sour candy. Themouthfeel is light bodied and finishes relatively clean.

Labeled as Monk's Cafe. Deep brown pour, slight head and constant ring, little lacing. Initial light sweet vinegar aroma, then Sweet Tart candy, ripe fruits, wet wood, very light vanilla, funk and more sourness. Taste follows the nose although the sour and tartness are a tad too light. Light sour and tart vinegar turning straight into very light Sweet Tart candy flavor, still light funk, fruit and sweetness. Very nice but doesn't measure up to other sour ales.

Bottled as "Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale". Pours a very dark crimson red/brown with not much of a head. No Carbonation what so ever. Aroma reminds me of a typical blond ale from that are with a hint of cherry. Taste is very mild with a strong but pleasant sourness to it. Puckering tartness reminds me of sour cherry or apples. Aftertaste is slightly sour but disappears to an almost smoked ending that reminds me of car exhaust for some reason. Overall not bad for my first sour.

A good version of the style but i wasnt blown away, very straightforward sour. Sweet sour fruit aroma, juicy peanut butter and jelly flavor, light and fizzy, nice in this damn heat.

A dark amber-light mahogany colored beer with a big sudsy light beige head. There's decent hang time on this one. Settles into a thick ringlet and splotches of film. Yeasty, sour nose. Tart cherry, yeasty in a well-slightly muted brew. Full bodied and smooth. Excellant beer.

Sampled from magnum bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin sudsy head. Tart cherry, mild funk aroma. Sweet flavor with some oak and wild yeast. Quite a bit sweeter than I would have liked but its very pleasant to drink. Light-bodied with medium-high carbonation. Worth trying.

Nice! I was a little scared of this I'll admit. Pours clear brown with a low low tan head. Sour cherries and grapes. Sour, but not as sour as i imagined. The first sip will pinch your cheeks, after that it mellows out. I'll be looking for this one again.
