Seems like it fits in the red category pretty well, very similar to some Belgian Red’s I’ve had. Clear and reddish and dark with a very nice full lacing / retention. nose is fruity and sour. Lots of funky sour. Palate is sour and red and fruity with a dry dry finish. Oh I like this a lot.

Beer opens lemon scented malt. Light maroon with a lofy head. Taste is an earthy sweet that smoothly transitions to a fruity oak. Palate is smooth but ends overly sweet. A great beer for a great time careful guys its 9% abv

Poured from big bottle. Apple and wine barrel aroma. Good lookin mahogany with no head. I have to say at this point that I am not a fan of sours. I taste fermented apple ciders with malt for balance and definite sangria flavors. This I think is a great example of the style.

Sampled after the Microfest run. A deep amber pour. Smells like a Flanders. A little funk with berries and tree bark. First sip is very malty. Very big malt profile for this style. It does make it easy to drink for novices. Mushroom and gungus are intetesting. Inside of a wood barrel flavors. Not world class but not bad.
