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!"

Sampled at GABF 2013. A nice tart and fruity flanders sour with wild yeast and lots of cherries. A little sweet, but quite tasty.

Pint can from brewery. Pours a rich orange with off white head with no lacing as it dissipates. Smells of creamy cherry. The flavor is great with warm vanilla and cherry with a sour funky finish.

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.

Thanks, Josh! Fuckin’ righteous can, and a wicked cool beer. Translucent copper brown, minimal carbonation. Nice nose of wet oak, vanilla, cherry, and lacto. Mouthfeel is nicely full, a bit smooth in places, mildly acetic, but the carbonation has a cola-like feel as well. Flavors are full, quite brightly yeasty in places and pleasantly acetic. A young oud bruin, and an enjoyable one for sure.

16 oz screw top can to snifter (shared by DanielCoor). Looks good for a Flanders; a semi-transparent amber with white lacing. Smells good too; sweet, tart, and slightly funky. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced, with. An average mouthfeel. Solid beer.
