Tap at the Bruery. It has green leafy cherries and strawberries. Like a soured fruit juice syrup. (In a good way).

jdjuice (341) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - DEC 28, 2014
Pours dark, rather amber brown with off white head. Flavors are pleasantly tart with a good deal of tannins from the barrel aging. Really quite complex and maybe a bit too rough to have more than a small amount at a time.

Dark red color. Gray funky smell. Good mouthfeel. Great funky, fruity, tart flavor. Lasting funky on tongue.

Bottle, gift from Sean. Red pour, little head. Sour cherry nose. Flavour is a tart sourness, red fruits. Light body, quite fizzy. Tart finish. Nice.

neongolden (563) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
(Bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Dec 19 2014) Beautiful deep red-brown colour, like nahogany glass, with a small white head and no lace. Nice oude bruin character on the nose with tart red berries overlaying dark fruit, caramel malt, vanilla, oak, light balsamic vinegar, a little vinous as expected. On the palate, fairly sour/tart and acidic with red berries and dark fruit, a bit of vinegar, red wine touches, a fairly hefty malt core, oak coming in mid palate but fairly balanced with some leather and subtle vanilla, mild toasted notes and a hint of funk. Finish is fairly dry with lingering tartness and oak supporting a decent helping of malt. Medium body with pretty active carbonation. This is quite a nice Flanders brown that doesn’t really overdo any area, sourness, fruit, malt or wood. Good balance if not transcendental.

weihenweizen (1881) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Refrigerated 75 cl brown 2013 bottle pour into a tulip. Dark brown with medium beige head. Aroma is medium body, medium/low carbonation, and lottle lacing. Taste is dark fruit, earthy, oak, some tart, some cherries, some red wine, and hints of vinegar. Pretty good, but not a favorite.

mmahut (1121) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber body with medium, quickly evading, head. Aroma has tartness character, light woody notes. Taste has acidic sourness, long bitter background, light malty support. Body is full, medium carbonation. Not bad, but not as good as I’ve expected for the fame.

GABF 2014. A Flanders red; good sour aroma and flavor. Some balsamic and the red wine quality is there. Dry finish.
