3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample. Poured a hazy reddish copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy tart 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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Odd Side during my Christmas trip to Michigan.
Pours a dark amber color with a very thin head and not much other than a thin collar on the way down. The nose brings a pretty strong sourness along with some nice cherry notes. A bit of light oak. The flavor has cherry and a bit of oak. Mildly lactic. Light-medium body with some chewiness and a sour, dry finish. Quite solid. Promising start with the sours here at Odd Side.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Odd Side. Murky, pulpy orange-brown body, thin clumping creamy beige head. Funky sweet and sour nose with lots of tart vinaigrette and funky fruit. Sour body with cobwebby dusty wheat, vinaigrette, and just a hint of wet socks. Sweet and relatively quick-hitting. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Odd Side. This beer is a light reddish amber with a medium sized sudsy head. Aromas shifted around a lot as it warmed. At first I thought it was more malt vinegar, tart cherries and band-aids, but as it warmed a bit, it became much more sour apple dominated and the bandages took a hike. Flavor was a little sweeter than I expected and sour was a little more underdeveloped than I had hoped, but this is one of the better Flanders beers I have had from a small brewer. It has quite a bit of a cherry sweet/sour thing going, but it finishes nice and tart with just enough edginess to make me happy. The wife liked it too!
