7 June 2016, bottle. red/brown, clear, occasional bubbles. nose is sweet, some dark bread, some blue cheese, faint balsamic. thin body and mildly fizzy. interesting. it isn’t as tart/balsamic tasting as most flanders reds. it has some burnt malt in the background, and it is a tad watery. interesting.

Bottle at tasting, shared by friends. Pours murky brown with almost no head. Tart aroma and flavor with cherry, oak, some vinegar, sour lemon and maybe some olives. Quite nice, but not completely balanced tartness.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong oak, vinegar, sour fruit. Thin mouth, strong acidity, vinegar, oak, decent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Caramel brown color with little to no head but lots of carbonation in the center of the glass. Almost like a volcano
Aroma: Sour with some red wine and brown sugar
Taste: Mild sour body with a meaty flavor apple juice on the finish
Overall: My bottle was a bit flat which otherwise would have been a tasty red sour without any distinct sour notes

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours lightly hazed and rust-colored with a brief, white head. The aroma is a fruity, funky scramble of sour cherries, caramel, fallen wood and fallen apricots. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. This is sour as hell, woody and fruity with an underpinning of caramel and a tiny splash of red wine vinegar. Crisp, sour finish. Thanks to newcigarz for providing this world-class Flanders red!
