3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Chez Moeder Lambic. Dark amber color. Citruis, plums and mango in the aroma. Malty soursweet flavor with citrus, plums, red fruit. Fairly complex, some dry out effect, perhaps from oak aging. The slightest hint of vanilla. Warming but well integrated alcohol. The aroma is still a bit rough.

Draft. Smells tart and sour. Taste isn't as smooth as I'd thought t would be. This is again like drinking a liquid sweet tart.

(Flasche @ CH-Dez13) Es hat eine kastanienbraune Farbe, ist leicht trüb mit einer fast weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist fruchtig-sauer, fast wie Kirsche und Rinde. Der Geschmack ist wie das Aroma, medium bodied, leicht adstringent und etwas sauer. Der Nachgeschmack ist fruchtig-sauer.

Serving: Growler from State Line Liquors. It pours a cloudy red color with no head. Sour cherry nose. Tart cherry, grape skins, and a hint of cider vinegar flavor with a touch of funk and a slight frontal sweetness. The high abv is completely hidden. Solid brew.

The bandage was wound around the wound.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Armsby Abbey, good stuff, deep garnet pour with mostly no head, taste is plenty of wood and drying sourness, pinches your mouth with tartness, and big ABV at 11% really packs some heat.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice light red with a thin head that receeds into a small rim but still leave nice and joyous white speckles on the glass walls. Aroma is loaded with vinegar, wood, sour fruits and alcohol. Reminescent of a nice sour brown/red. Taste is tart but not too much with some vinegar character but less than the nose would suggest. There is also a light sweetness to it. Flavors are fruity and woody. Body is medium, carbonation maybe a touch high. Mouthfeel is vinous, alcohol shows quite a bit but it isn’t disturbing. It does warm you plenty, though. Really nice!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep amber slightly hazy body with a medium off-white creamy head. Nose is oak, vanilla, mild balsamic, apple vinegar, dark malts and hints of lactic sourness and straw. Taste is mild apple vinegar and balsamic, wood, lactic acidity and hints of caramel and grains in the back. Medium body, high carbonation. Very smooth and enjoyable sour ale; this could be in the Flemish Red category.

Pours red with some sticky frothy head that laces. Nose is amazingly tart, funky, oak, caramel, stone fruits, berries, spur cherries, vanilla. Flavor is tart but sweeter. Lack some of the awesome shit the nose has. Sticky texture, full bodied, and slightly warming. Pretty nice but aroma was far superior.
