Pours an amber brown, with a paperthin head. Aroma of Brett, red wine and funk. Taste is dry red wine, sour and delicious. Tart yet not over the top. Really nice Flanders red.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle on the RBSG 2012 bus. Murky brown with ruddy accents. Nice sour cherry/vinegar notes, red wine, dark malty. So many American attempts at the style are terrible - either too acetic or too sweet usually - but this stuff nails it.

I used to think that flanders red had to melt my teeth but this is so well-balanced. A nice malty balance and I could drink this all day

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a small a dense black tea colored liquid while there was a small development of foam head for a topping. My nose can detect that this will be a bit sour from the initial aroma, and that there is a bold presence of authentic Belgian yeast with dashes of spice. The flavor was sour and tart with an undertone of the Belgian yeast that gave off tastes of nutmeg or cinnamon and other spices too. The sourness is similar to squeezed lime juice and while the sourness is light, it doesn’t really taste as strong as other sour ales on the shelves. Not disappointed, but at the same time not exactly impressed.
