Draft sample. Poured a hazy reddish brown color with an average to large creamy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour fruit aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tart & sour flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.

Tap at Michigan Winter Beer Festival - 22-Feb-2014. Flanders style. A little maltier than most other Flanders reds that I’ve had. Tart but not truly sour. Might just need a bit more age?

On tap at HopCat. Dark red pour. Sour nose. Good, sour body--a bit more emphasis on vinegar than tartness, moreso than I’d expect from a "Flanders" red. Decent.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Tap: Opaque mahogany body with only a light shimmer of red tones floating through; beige-ish head is gone in only a few moments. Aroma is heavy duty oak with a mild sour cherry presence, light cinnamon-like spice, & an apparent booziness. The booziness carries over to the taste... Lots of oak & vinous flavors, though the booze almost tastes like an undercurrent of bourbon? Only lightly tart, not what I’d call "sour". Dry, cherry skin & slightly acidic finish. Plenty of oak, front to back. Only decent; I prefer my Flanders Reds with more tart & less apparent alcohol presence.
