I’m no Michael Jackson, but I think this is exactly how this style of beer should taste. That said I can see how some people might be put off by the style, the fruity, yeasty flavor. I taste plums and maybe even a hint of peach. I’m impressed that MN brewery is putting out a true Belgium like this. I think you have to be in the right mood, but this is a pretty good beer! This is the first Brau Brothers beer I’ve had…it will be interesting to taste some of the other beers they offer.
Well, by the looks of the reviews so far I might be in the minority on this beer. My wife and I stopped in at the Happy Gnome for lunch and had a couple of glasses. When I was reading about the beer beforehand I had been thinking “cranberries? That sounds awful.” But I couldn’t have been more wrong, this is an outstanding beer!! Because of the tartness it reminded me of something from Belgium. Not overly sweet, very, very good!!
