Day 492: Bacchus Flanders

Writing tonight feels frivolous in light of what's happening in Boston. It's disheartening that something like a marathon is marred by lunacy. I can't stop thinking about how the Boston Marathon is a dream for so many people. This is stupid and senseless violence. I'm not sure if I'll ever understand it.

Keep those runners and spectators in your thoughts. I know I will.

Tonight's beer review is of Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck's Bacchus--a Flanders oud bruin.

It poured looking like a ruby-tinged cola with a thin pale tan head. It's smell is light sour cherry. Given its look, I was expecting more balsamic vinegar. It drank with a thinness but was surprisingly carbonated. It tasted like a tart cherry soda water with mineral notes.
