Liefmans Goudenband

Brewer: Liefmans
Style: Flanders Oud Bruin
ABV: 8.00%

Enjoyed some of this at a recent tasting and decided a bit more was needed. First impression was quite good.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a thick head that thins out nicely to a lace.

The nose is spicy and sweet. Picked up what reminded me of tart cherries as well.

The first drink had a certain slight puckering sourness to it. Not over overpowering but not something I have tasted in a beer thus far. It actually reminded me a lot of a cider made with green apples. Overall a complex and smooth beer with a great mouth feel and pleasing aftertaste.

I give it an A-, pick some up and enjoy!
