Bacchus Flemish Old Brown was recently released at the LCBO.
Here is my review :
Appearance: The packaging is great! The bottle is wrapped in a paper. When opened the brown bottle is plain.
Pours dark brown with burgundy highlights. Has a big head that dissipates quickly to a small rim.
Aroma: Aroma is dominated by sour cherries. There is some sweetness and a hint of oak.
Taste: Sour cherries upfront followed by some oak and vanilla sweetness. The sour cherries are prominate through to the finish. There are also some prune flavors that are come out as the beer warms up.
Mouthfeel: Agressive carbonation, light body.
Finish: Quick finish, doesn’t last very long.
I’m a huge fan of sour beers and this is a great beer. It’s not too sour, so you’re able to drink a couple in a row. It’s very refreshing and a great beer added to the Fall release. I’d be interested to pair this with a Camembert! I think the pairing would be excellent.
