Barrel Aged Double Flanders Red Ale

Scopey (7064) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2012
2011 bottle thanks to Bruce at THE fruit sour tasting. It pours deep ruby, almost purple with a small off-white head. The nose is jam, oak, vanilla, toasted coconut, blackcurrant, red grape and cherry. The taste is fresh dark cherry, blackcurrant yoghurt, jam, lemon, lip-smacking sourness, cherry pip, earth, light vanilla and wood with a tart finish. Medium body, moderate, prickly carbonation and medium-high acidity. Great balance and depth of flavour. Perhaps a touch rougher round the edges and more acidic than Sang Royal but a delicious beer nonetheless.

Bottle courtesy of BrainLair. Not a very pleasant beer. Aroma has citrus and tangerine notes but mostly rotten fruit and mold. Flavor is even worse. Extremely sour and acetic. Some tangerine notes. Really unpleasant.

radarsock (944) - Vermont, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle, passed around on Black Friday, Scottsdale. Pours a prune cordovan with a soapy, off-white head. Very tart with hints of wood, rose pedals, white wine lees, and pilsener malt. Cherries by swallow. Not as "yum" as I thought itíd be, but still rather delicious.

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle - Reddish brown with a thin ring of off-white head. Nose is pear and cherry. Sharp oak too, with a bit of tartness. Taste is really citrusy tart, with oak, vanilla, and a bit of sweet caramel malt. Nice medium body with very soft, fluffy carbonation.

750ml bottle. Rating #132. Interesting beer, something didnít seem right. A few of the guys were saying it smelled like nail polish, which it did just a little bit. One thing for sure was that it was extremely sour, very puckering. Ok beer, just wasnít feeling it. (2562)

Pours a dark brown with red hue, decent off- white head which settles. Aroma is tart cherry, lemon, lots of oak, hint of bourbon. Taste is sour cherry and funk, vinegar with nice oak and vanilla in the finish. Great palate. One of the best sours Iíve had.

Thanks to brewandbbq for hooking me up with this bottle! Pours a deep garnet brown with a huge tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves much lace on the way down. Smells of balsamic, cherries, lemon and funk. Light alcohol note and a touch of wood. The flavor is complex and varied. Up front I get some sweet cherries and a light sweet maltiness. Tart cherries, a bit of lactic acid and lemons destroy the sweetness in short order. Woody oak come in next with a bit of funk and vinegar and an ever increasing lactic tartness. The finish leaves a lingering sweet tart candy feel on my taste buds. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a tart chalky puckering mouthfeel. Very nice Flanders style ale very complex. Maybe I should have asked for more than one bottle!

2011 Project, bought from the brewery online for $21 It pours a murky rusty colour, started off with over a finger head of foam but that quickly dissipated. Very little lacing left behind. You can certainly smell the sour cherries and the oak barrel. Some slight note of vanilla there. My nose is happy. Tart cherries up front in the taste, oak flavours not so much. Alcohol extremely well hidden when it comes to what sits and swirls in my mouth, some definite warming during and after the swallow. Sour, yeah, but not overly so. Very slight hint of a vinegar sourness so I donít *think* that heartburn will be an issue. Very tasty from the get go; I opened it at near room temp to get all of the flavours rather than opening after pulling from the fridge. A delightfully delicious Wild Ale that I wish had a bit less alcohol to make it even more drinkable; as is, itís still and an easy drop to tip back. Iím very impressed with what Cascade has made here. They sure do know their s*it.
