Bulk_Carrier (3851) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAR 23, 2016
On tap at Vermont tap house, Williston, VT. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a burnt red close to brown color with a slim finger’s worth of white foamy head. Quickly dissipates. Messy lacing. The smell takes on a nice sour citrus, some grapefruit, tart apple, sour cherries all coming together and playing against super subtle caramel/toffee/biscuit malts. The taste was mainly sour with a nice dry tart edge bringing in subtle oaky/woody notes. Running dry in the aftertaste and on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a fair sessionable to sipping quality about it. Carbonation runs nice. Sour and oaky notes punch my tongue appropriately. Overall, what a nice Flanders Red ale. I’d have this one again.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin off white film that disappeared quickly. The aroma and flavor have tart fruitiness, cherries, apple vinegar, wood, some yogurt character, the acetic character was more on the nose, sourness grew as it warmed, I like it but wouldn’t necessarily seek it out.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2016
On tap at Dutch’s. Half hazy red orange color. Ring of white head, some loose bits of lace. Just a mild touch of vinegar in the nose, very nice cherry and oak in the flavor, mildly toasty. Nice bit of cheese/yogurt in the finish. Moderate to bigger sour taste, lighter to moderate sweet. Medium-plus body, kind of slick texture. Light carbonation. Very tasty, complex, satisfying, balanced.

b3shine (8179) - Indiana, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Draft to snifter. Looks solid; a cloudy caramelish orange with eggshell head that dissipates into lacing pretty quickly. Smells solid too; tart and funky with notes of oak, dark fruit, and apple cider vinegar. Tastes Like it smells with a pleasant medium-bodied mouthfeel. A discernible Rodenbach sour cherry presence on the tongue as well. Enjoyable.

nuplastikk (5794) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 14, 2016
On tap at Malt House. Really brings me back to the old Rodenbach days, which for me, was around 2000. Unfiltered orange-brown-red. Thin, steady, creamy, white head. Tart and biting, nice oaky cherry tones. While it is sour, it is pretty easy to drink. Medium bodied. Slight mineral vinegar tones. Pretty excellent. Quite lacto forward, starter-like.
