Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 Special thanks to Jeff for sharing his bottle. Apparently this is a rep-only sort of deal. Aroma of candied apples, funky brett yeast, slight oak and sour cherry. Pours red with nice pink film. Taste is wonderfully tart. Sour cherry, crab grass, great wood bourbon notes. Opens with a sharp tartness and finished with a sweet candy finish with sour cherry aftertaste. Simply a wonderful brew.

3 oz pour at Hops & Pie. Aroma of red fruits, sour berries, light oak, light vanilla and a hint of bourbon. Similar flavor, sour and barrel complexities with hints of bourbon spice and a tart, lingering finish. Nice.

IndianaRed (3665) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 2, 2016
OnTap hazy light brown, Persistent tan head. Classic woody dark pitted fruit tart aroma. Rather sharp and acidicflavors. And then the warm woody sour notes come though. Dryer and more aggressive than many Flanders’. Bold and sharp. Rather harsh acidic bite in theback of the throat at the end.
