3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
25 oz bottle. Pours a nice brightly clear ruby red body with a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin ring quickly. The nose is nicely traditional at first, tart and woody with some light funkiness and some sour cherry. As it warms the unique tweak of the barrel comes out a bit more with some light vanilla and whiskey. The flavor is pretty well removed from traditional Flemish Red though. Much more dry and funky than any authentic Flemish Red I’ve had. The brett has really taken hold here, it’s crazy funky with almost zero acidity and just a light sour cherry tartness on the back end. Very woody with a nice vanilla undertone. Not a whole lot of whiskey influence, but that is a good thing in my book. Medium bodied, rather sturdy malt backbone, with nice fizzy efforvescent carbonation. Finishes very dry and tannic with some lingering cereal grains. Pretty enjoyable beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Thanks to Derek for sharing... Pours a mostly transparent reddish caramel brown with a thin off-white to light beige head... Sour cherry vinegar nose with medium acidity. Fair bit of a bready rye finish... Flavors are much of the same with a mediocre level of sour cherry and an earthiness that tames things down a level. Carbonation was light to medium as is the body.

Bottle thanks to BrewedAwakening, shared with others. Poured clear deep amber with a red hue and a creamy brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice combination of sour fruits and rye with a slight bit of whiskey in the backing. Flavor starts with sour fruits that mellows to a rye spiciness with a bit of vanilla in the finish.
