3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy red brown pour with a thin off white that fades to a ring almost instantly. Aroma is cherry, wood, and a little musty with some faint vinegar in the background. Taste starts with slightly tart cherry then goes into some lacto and finishes earthy. Very faint tartness and hardly sour. Very short. Body is thin with a little prickle from the carbonation. There are some nice components to it, but it lacks depth and again flavors are very short.

Caramel color with a small foamy tan head. The aroma is amazing... sour, earthy, awesomeness, somehow still clean and crisp. Ranger creek does it again. The return of #1? Smooth, sour, crisp, desirable beer.

This one is an interesting and well-made Flanders. I quite liked it. This makes for a plenty enjoyable beer. Iíve now got Ranger Creek at 2 for 2, and Iím looking forward to drinking more of their beers.
