On tap @ GABF. Amber pour with an off-white head. Light acetic tartness along with some lemon, cherry, and red grapes. Nice fruit, some grass, apple, and a touch of caramel. Good cherry flavor, some tart vinegar, lemon, and grape. A mild grass note and caramel sweetness.

Can... Pours lightly hazy and burnt orange with no head. The bouquet furnishes funky cheese, sweaty socks and sour cherries with a light note of caramel. Full-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is deeply tart and moderately acetic, flanked by a nice element of toasted oak. Well-balanced overall. No detectible bitterness. The mildly sweet, fairly tart finish leaves an aftertaste of buttery diacetyl that doesn’t really hurt my feelings all that much. Can courtesy of StFun!

GABF 2013. Pours a dark orange appearance with a light tan head. Aroma seemed fine with some light vinegar, dark fruits, and black cherries. Unfortunately, I got a bunch of butter in the flavor with just ruined the flavor for me. Strangely enough, none of the other ratings from GABF noted this, which makes me wonder if my pour was from a separate keg or my senses were just off.

Sample from the can. Amber color. Flavors of balsamic, fresh oak barrels, light tart fruit notes. Good sour punch on the finish.

Aluminum bottle (filled to the brim). Mixture of lactic acid, apple cider vinegar, and cherry aroma. Ruby amber with minimal head. Sweet-tart cherry malt and light sour milk and horseblanket flavor. Nice body. Very pleasant - "Its like I’m wearing nothing at all!"

Tart cherriness, vinegar, sour, funk, it isn’t over the top but a nice sweetish red.

phaleslu (6555) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2013
16 oz. aluminum bottle shared by DanielCoor- thanks! Pours a hazed amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of thick butter, vanilla, brown sugar, cheese, melon, and berries. Flavor is marginally better, but still sweet and buttery, with vanilla, sour candy, berry fruits, and some funk. Sweet and sour, with a medium body and moderate carbonation. What a mess. Didn’t work at all. Had this right after CIB Cheri Tart, and this was no better.

16oz screw top can, thanks to DanielCoor. Shared with caterwaul. Really awesome big rich cherry pie and creme in the nose. Mmm... Tastes very much like it smells. Delicious. Cheesecake, and cherry. Much more crisp, smooth, and easy drinking than the flemish we just sampled prior to this (Cuvee Freddy). Medium body, with a crisp lighter carbonation. Finish is only slightly sticky. Moderate sweet taste, good moderate tart sourness, light spiciness. Mostly clear amber / red orange color. Last pour is hazy. Minimal greyish head. Really tasty flanders. Surprisingly easy drinking. Sometimes diving into a flanders on my own makes me a little nervous, but I could have easily chiefed this one on my own.

TheAlum (5721) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2013
16 oz can from the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Exciting find, good enough consolation for being one day too early for Grapefruit Jungle cans. Pours a richer brownish balsamic pour, glowing orange and copper edges lace ok. A frothy tannish head atop dies to a loose ring, laces small and rings small. Aromas show a decent lactic twang, wet oak and melloe red wine elements. A touch tannic, faint spirit. A bit of biscuit, red cherries, and a gentle vinegar touch. Some lactic twang, cherries, and red wine. A bit more mellow, well integrated. Nice. Initial is a bit sharp up front, lactic and cherry. A touch sweet and tart, some more lactic presence as it starts to roll on. Decent oak presence, a bit tannic with gentle balsamic, more cherryskin, a bit of biscuit and bready malt. Sour cherry, lactic twang, some red wine, oak, gentle carbonation is bubbly as we round the corner. Gentle vinegar touch, a bit of gentle malt sweetness, red wine is gentle tannic and wine element. Sourness hits a peak on the palate as it rounds into the backend, tannic and cherryskin, gentle malt presence definitely sticks around and provides some balance, but sour lactic kick, gentle funky brett, oak presence really does do some work here. Gentle biscuit, wheat bread, a bit earthy. Really nicely put together here. Really nice.
