3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Dark red bordering on mahogany. Fluffy, foamy creme colored head.
N: Bourbon and pinot. Leather and grapes. Lemon rind. Caramel mixed with fruit, but not as pleasant at that sounds. Too much bourbon, not enough noir.
T: Sour lactic acid and overly sweet bourbon. Nothing works in concert.
M: Oily and heavy. Too much body.
O: I used to really enjoy this at the Holiday Ale Festival. In the midst of all those stouts and bourbon beers, it was a break. This is not. In the cold light of day, it’s not at all sensible.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This pours a dark plum color. A very tart all around beer. Very good. A big vinegar flavor. A lot of tart fruits, cherries and black cherries mixed with some deep oak flavors. I really like all of its flavors. Maybe I was just feeling it but maybe the best for me for the night of some good stuff. Really great brewery.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a deep reddish brown color with a tan head and some lacing. Aroma is chocolate covered cherries, a little vanilla, a little oak. Medium on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour, some bourbon, oak, vanilla, cherry, transitions into red wine, with a dry, red wine finish. Excellent.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from tap to glass. Deep dark red hue with tan head that dissipated to a moderate ring. Aroma is lactic, bright cherries, acetic, sugar, soft wood. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and good carbonation. Taste is sharp dryness initially, followed by a sour tartness, and a dry tartness with faint woody astringentness in the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Flanders. It is quite tart/sour with a nice complexity of lactic, acetic, and tartness.
