Belgian Beer no.247: Aardmonnik

Thank God for guest writers/ readers of Belgian-Beers.EU - otherwise I am not sure we'll ever get through all the Belgian beers. Problem with Belgium? They don't exactly stop inventing beers so we can go through all of them...
A series of beers reviewed by Michael follows for the next couple of days. This will give us the chance to try and drink some more for you.

Sampled this wonderful beer in Kulminator in Antwerp. Brewed by De Struise Brouwers, expectations were high following the Pannepot tried on previous visit. Not realising it was a Flemish Sour Ale, (and not being a particular lover of Sour Ales), I was pleasantly surprised by both the aroma and taste. It poured pretty much the sameas Pannepot, but with an almost cider like aroma. At 8%, the taste was, as the style suggests, sour, but also fruity and sweet, but smooth on the back of the throat. A brilliant beer if you can find it.
