Monk's Flemish Sour Ale

I really like this beer. They serve it at Monk's Cafe in Philly, but I've seen it at a few better liquor stores. What style is this, and does anyone have an idea how I could go about cloning it?

Flander's Red

I highly suggest picking up a copy of Wild Brews by Jeff Sparrow. IMO it's required reading for anybody interested in sour beers.

Yep, Monk's has inspired many of my batches. I also got into cheese after tasting the truffle cheeseburger.
