3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Opaque amber pour with an off white head. Not getting much aroma wise. Mildly sour, with brett, green apple, biscuit, and malty characteristics. Itís definitely not a "traditional" Flanderís Red for sure. Kinda of a bastardized Frankensteinish version but still not all together repulsive. Itís more a kin to a wreck on the side of the freeway that intrigues you. Average body and mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml corked n caged bottle- Pours extremely hazy orange with a medium off white head that reduces. Aroma is medium tart, caramel malt, a bit too earthy, fruity. The taste is lacto off the bat, cherries, apples, funky, getting brett, not sure if itís in there, but very dusty books and basement flavors. Medium to soft carbonation, not bubbly at all. Good beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Julios. Murky cloudy caramel color with lasting head and a little lace. Funky woody cherry caramel bready aroma. Fruity sour cherry caramel woody with out of place herbal bitterness and some toffee in the finish along with mouth-coating old wood. Medium body. Fairly unpleasant. Give me Rodenbach Grand Cru at half the price any day.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 32 oz crowler.
Aroma is sweet with a medium light honey note. Some light stone fruit notes with some cherry and a touch of tropical fruit. Some caramel with a bit of toasted bread. Light acidity and faint citrus notes.
Pours a slightly hazy, copper color with a large, frothy, rocky, light tan head that recedes to a thin film of foam that clumps in the center. Light lacing and no legs.
Flavor is moderately acidic with a moderately strong malt profile. Lots of caramel, honey and some lighter toasted bread. Medium light bitterness. Some stone fruit notes and over ripe tropical fruit with bits of cherry. The honey character gives it a strong oxidation note.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, not a good beer. Iím not sure why, but this beer has such a strong a oxidation that really conflicts with the light acidity.
