I know I should have gone to the brewery. I know. I know I know. But I was on holiday and sick and I needed to save it up for the Baseball Hall of Fame because it's the year another sweet Expo enters and, well, I liked the Expos. I got the hat, OK? Let it go. Jeesh.
Zurr doesn't even seem listed on the site for Ommegang anymore. 6% Flemish Oud Brown Ale with cherries added. The cherries do seem a wee bit of a cheat as this all seems a little tiny (tiny) bit easy yet to have a competent Goudenband clone on the loose in North America is, you know, really good. It pours active lightly reddened light chestnut with a well held beige head. Cherry vinegar on the nose. With the cherry there is balsamic, drying oak and nod to vanilla in all there in a bright acidic sip.
Solid BAer respect.
