Ichtegem's Grand Cru

Type: flemish red ale
Origin: Ichtegem, Belgium
Price: $4.99 per 11.2 oz

The bestdamnbeerstore strikes again. After purchasing a bunch of good beers, I wanted a good lambic, and something out of the ordinary. I've never seen this one before, and it was the cheapest, so we have a winner. The color on this one is a nice blood red, with a minimal head. The aromas are sour, but not overpowering (you really have to get your nose in there). The taste is nice and mellow. There is a good sour quality, but nothing to make you cringe. This is pretty much the most balanced red ale I've had and I would strongly suggest it for you sour fans.
