3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My first sour ale. Had to try it when I saw it at Ridgeview Liquor in Green Bay. A deep red/orange color, crystal clear. Pours a minimal head that quickly dissipates. A mixture of fruit aroma with a bit of raisin. Pleasant sour taste balanced with some sweetness. A very light body with little carbonation, very crisp. Will definitely purchase a few more bottles!

Bottle share. Tart, venous nature. Definite sour characteristics. Aroma and taste right in the wheelhouse.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a light mahogany with a creamy beige head that ends up in a ring around the glass. Sour cherry and unripe plums skins, slightly smokey and oaky presence mixed in with some caramel malt, bit of tartness, raisin, moderate carbonation and body, as it dries out on the palate you get more old cherry and as Calvin described "vomit". Apart from that taste at the end pretty yummy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, with thanks to Mike. Clear ruby brown pour. Short lived brown head. Aroma reminds me of vanilla-spiked potpourri; some cherry (but strangely in an artificial cherry juice kind of way, which isn’t what I’m used to from New Glarus, even in their excellent, sweet fruit beers). Fruit leather, hints of smoke. Somewhat vegetal. Taste is moderately sweet with present but restrained tartness. Syrupy texture, medium+ body, soft carbonation. Overall: a rare miss.

Bottle shared thanks roger. Flanders red in all its glory. Cherry and or other dark fruit with some oak on the back end full sour on the nose. The flavor is amazing dark cherries dark fruit oaky wood lots of sour but not enough to pucker. Balanced so wonderfully. Could drink many of these.
