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!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky brown with some copper color. Aroma is tart vinegar. Fruity and vinegar, pickled vegetables and tart lactose dominate. Quite shoe but a nice balance. Criminally underrated.

murky tea, large bubbled white ring. Nose whacks acetic to start, iron and toasty. Flavor equally acetic, bits of brown sugar, harsh citric bites the back corners of the mouth. Painful burn in the finish, singular throughout. Drink at your own peril.
