Bacchus

I'm drinking this beer now and I'm pretty underwhelmed. I've had some great beers from Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck (Kasteel Rouge is excellent, and Gueuze Fond Tradition is right up there with Girardin IMO), but this one falls a bit flat for me. It is way undercarbonated for a sour, and I don't really pick up a lot of complexity from either Brett or malt. I generally prefer lambics and Flanders reds, but I've still had some good Oud Bruins that have some nice somplexity to fill in what they're lacking in tartness (Petrus Oud Bruin, for example).
