Review – Reinaert Flemish Wild Ale (Cunning Fox)
De Proefbrouwerij: Fermented three times with two different yeasts, including a strain of brettanomyces – the “wild yeast” of lambic brewing. Pale golden color with an enormous rocky white head. Brett and spicy aromatic notes, with a malty-juicy note on the palate. Finishes with Brett and dry hop notes.
De Proefbrouwerij – Reinaert Flemish Wild Ale – 750ml bottle poured into a Chimay chalice – 9% abv.
Appearance: Cloudy, dull banana yellow. Maintains a 1/8 inch, tight knit head.
Aroma: A sour Piña colada that ends with some funk.
Taste: Middle of the tongue sourness, followed by some banana and lemon. Some bitterness towards the middle from a fair amount of hopping. Ends with some barn yardy funk, but not overpowering what-so-ever.
Mouthfeel: It is the perfect viscosity, and in carbonation. Not thick, but by no means, thin.
Overall: This sour beer does not twist your face at all. The sourness is so intriguing, that you will find yourself drinking something this strong, quicker than usual.
