3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle at Sour & Bitter 2012. It pours very dark brown, with a thin tan film. The nose is sweet-sour, balsamic vinegar, red berry, syrup, wood, vanilla and almond. The taste is also sweet-sour, white and balsamic vinegar, tart lemon, grapefruit, red berry, wood and alcohol warmth, with lightly tart finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and moderate tartness. Well balanced. Definitely one of the best American interpretations of a Flemish red that I’ve had.
