Sour red...aroma if metal and copper..not good..but flavor of sour malt tartness bring thus beer to excellence. May be I should have let it sit. Malty sourness in flavor was a perfect balance. Breads yeasty and wet paper was great.

I was lucky to get this as an extra in a trade. My first from Crooked Stave. Pours out reddish brown. It smells sour, tannic and also some wood comes through. Taste is pretty complex, I noticed red fruit, lemon sourness and malty almost chocolate like flavors. Overall it´s a delicious dark sour beer with so many nuances that it shouldn´t work....but it does. I instantly retraded for a bunch of CS beers of the back of this one.

(Bue en fût sur place): Typique rouge des Flandres avec une forte cerise et une présence chocolatée très noire. Des minéraux insistent aussi pour faire parti du profil. Vraiment complexe et savoureux.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a dark amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of sour tartness, fruits and caramel. The taste was similar to the aroma with more tartness. Very nice.

Pours a deep copper from the bottle with minimal ring of bubbly tan head. Aroma is nice tannic must, lactic sour, dark fruits. Taste follows with a big fruity sour middle, wine barrel tartness all over. Definitely another winner from crooked stave.

375 ml. bottle. 11/2014 Batch 4. Pours a thin, poorly retained, light beige head, over a clear brown (SRM 20) body.....nose is barnyard, sour cherry, plum, light cocoa, hints of chocolate, light balsamic, no hops....taste is moderate sour cherry to start, cocoa, plum, Apple hints of sweetness, vanilla, barnyard, light vinous notes, finishing with a light balsamic tart sourness......mouth feel, medium body, minimal alcohol, moderate acid, light carbonation. This is a lovely complex beer in both aroma and flavor. It is a bit dark for a Flanders Red, but that really is the only flaw. BJCP 9/3/15/4/8

bottle. deep red/brown with a small beige head. tart red fruits in aroma, light brett character. flavor has notes of sour red berries, oak. burnt bread and caramel in the finish. very dry. i prefer the sour reds/browns with a little more body and sweetness, otherwise its a very nice beer, very drinkable, and approachable.

Bottle crushed with TheRon. Reddish brown pour with a off-white head with some lacing. Do you like beer with your vinegar? So acetic. Little undercarbed. Tart but not sour. Overall underwhelming.
