4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours mostly clear deep amber brown (some particulate) with a fat finger of dense light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, light patchy lacing (4/5). Nose is dominated by sour cherry, with a hint of other berries and oaky wood, balsamic vinegar (9/10). Taste is mild sweet, moderately intense sour, just a hint of umame (8/10). Medium to full body, moderate to prickly sustained carbonation, with a tart, dry finish (5/5).
Now that’s what I’m talking about! I do love me a good Flemish red, and that’s a good Flemish red. Lovely sour on the nose and the tongue, finishing tart and crisp. Well worth the inevitable heartburn! (18/20)

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2014 330ml bottle from St Veronus. Deep brown red body with minimal to non-existent off white head. Sour cherry, light berries, wood, not much comes through past the intensity of the cherry. Very tart in taste, however not overbearing whatsoever. Very wine like, very minimal lacing. Extremely full bodied and complex.

"stumbled upon this on tap at Pangea in Sac w/o realizing it was a wishlist brew! quite sour in smell and taste, with a lot of apple vinegar and sweet cherries and oak. pretty good example of a flemish red. somewhere in the 5% range, but alcohol is definitely irrelevant with such flavorful brews. good stuff."
