ineedbeer (668) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
On tap at Beer Revolution. Aroma is full of fruit with some light oak character and some acidity. Lots of cherries, plums, prunes and currants with some faint vanilla and spice. Light acidity in the aroma but not too acetic. Pours a burnt amber with ruby notes. Solid, slightly off white head with really good retention. Light lacing and very small legs. Flavor is similar to the aroma with lots of fruitiness with balanced oak and acuity. Lots of cherry, currant, plum and prune. The acidity compliments and isn't too overpowering - some acetic acid but mostly lactic. Finish has some oak, vanilla and spice character with faint acidity. the finish has a bit of raisin in it and other dried fruit as well. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium full carbonation. No astringency and low alcohol warmth. A bit of a smoothness to it; the acidity definitely isn't too sharp. Overall this is one of the best American Flanders Ales that I have had. Lots of fruitiness with balanced malt character and acidity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
