3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brouwer’s Big Wood 2013. Mild! Cloudy, honey-colored pour. Very mildly tart notes of apricot and peach, with just a bit of funk. It’s slightly dilute, but not at all bad. Not sure I’d order it again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another winner from Logsdon. A bit of a snake firework out of the bottle, just a foamy gusher. Pours a crimson brown color with off white head. Aroma is brett, spicy oak, cherry, balsamic, and plum. Taste is lightly sweet with some dark fruit flavors and a drying brett componant with some light flavor notes of cola, nuts, and cherries. Lively effervescent carbonation.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, dark reddish pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of cherry, slight oak, lemon notes, hints of nice red fruits, touch of earthy and lots of spicy notes come through. Taste is a mix of oak, earth, lemon, slight red fruits, touch of vinegar, lots of spice in there, finishing fairly oaky, slightly tart. Decent.

Big beautiful full sour scents. A dark glowing maroon color. Smooth full mouth feel lots of subtleties in the body that all take their turn under a nice showering of sour. Amazing! great version of a Flanders red. Do not miss it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Turbid dark amber pour with an off-white head. Aromas of cherry, chocolate, and a touch of balsamic vinegar. Sweet toffee and vanilla aromas, too. Flavor is sweet brown sugar, toffee, caramel, and vanilla. A fair amount of chocolate and cherry. Some balsamic vinegar tartness, green apple, and oak. Not what I was hoping for.
