750ml bottle 2014 vintage pours semi clear red brown with small head. Nose is tart, some acetone, touches of grape and dried fruit. Taste is straightforward, low funk, medium acidity, a bit acetic, some vinous grape and dark cherry skin, plum. Finish is tart, acidic fruit, hint of oak, dried dark fruit, grape. Lacks complexity and has some acetic issues. OK.

On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. First beer! A blurry really warm amber brown colored one this. A nice medium sizes beige head on the top. Lovely tart red wine vinegar nose. Red berries. Yeah, it’s definitely betted with something this. Lots of funky woody dark charred matches. It’s lovely prickling on the soft bubbles and oily in the mouth. A bit watery perhaps? Well, not really after a few sips. Lots of flavors, quite bitter as well. Sour strawberries, sour apricots, red wine and fruity strawberries. Really lingering aftertaste. A wonderful start. 02.05.2014

On tap @ Brouwer’s. Pours hazy dark reddish brown with medium lacy mocha head. Aroma is tart cherries up front, followed by dry oak, leather, and more red berries on the back. Taste is clean light caramel red malt, crisply tart smooth finish with big vinous red wine flavor on the finish. Very restrained tartness and ABV, but plenty of flavor.

Draft pour at the Brouwers Big Wood festival. Pours a reddish orange color with an interesting sour peach, cherry aroma. Really dry sour fruit flavor. Tiny bit of a wheat finish. Tangerine and sour cherry flavor too. More dry finish. Solid beer. Fits right in with other great sours. Great beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the STL Hops 7th Anniversary Party - Pours light brown with a tan head. The aroma has sourness, berries, oak, vanilla and light vinegar. It has a medium body with some mush and light carbonation. The taste has the Flanders red aspects of the aroma, but it is more malty and more sourness and a salty aspect. Very well done.
