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

Pours deep mahogany to cherry red. Very little head but no problem there. Huge wine and fruit nose. Big tartness up front with a wine and slight funk. Effrevescent and a really nice tart finish. Great beer!

Smells and tastes a bit like vinegar. Not a fan of sours, but came as party of a sampler. Dark brown colour little head. (K)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy dark red with a small head. Aromas of leather strapped dark sour fruit. Taste is sour. Flavors of vinegar, oak, dry wine. Notes of dark rum cake and grandmas bunions. Finishes on a note of over hyped Bruery garbage and a slight hint of dumpster drippings. Meh.

Bottle. Tart. Obviously. Very low pH but not chest thumping sour. Pretty good and the 7.5% is well hidden.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Cherry-flavored caramel meld into delicate balsamic acidity in this otherwise musty Flanders Red interpretation.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the muddy pale brown.
-Earthiness is also found in the finish.
-The caramelized fruitiness tends to take away from my enjoyment of this brew.
-The flavor profile is certainly pleasant, but it is not entirely successful to me.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled @ Zeebra #2. 5cl sample. The aroma has mango, citrus, sweetness, hint of honey. Clear, yellow coloured beer with a thin, white head. The taste has citric acidity, citrus, is wild. Refreshing beer. Light-medium bodied. Aroma is really good, taste is okayish.
