AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2007
2006 Vintage. An orangey-red color, lightly hazy with an uncharacteriscally Jolly Pumpkin, thin head that is bone white. Aroma is intense with rotting, sour cherries, oak, vanilla, coconut, and a red wine-like acidic overlay. Powerfully intense flavor profile. All of the aroma components are in the flavor with the oak showing freshness, lots of coconut, a solid sweetness, and a balancing tannic bite.

copestx (75) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle. Wild yeast, cherries and oak in the aroma. Taste is sour fruits, oak, chestnuts, plums, a more classic Flanders red (as opposed to the more vinegary brown) but with some funk and lemon as well. Mild carbonation. Really, really good.
