Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a small fluffy brown head. Wow, this smells amazing. Lots of tart cherry, vinegar, dark fruits, light oak, lemon, and a light spiciness as well. Earthy, vinegary tartness up front on the taste, slight citrus acidity, dark cherries, oak, nice toasty malt undertones, and slightly grassy.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
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.

Bottle.

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.

HonkeyBra (3318) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark cola brown with a minimal, fizzy head. Aroma of cherries, dark fruit, vinegar, and toasted oak. Mild oxidation in the aroma. Flavor is vinegar and strong sourness. Quite a bit acidity. Stomach is hurting half way through the glass. If your favorite flavor is "Sour" this beer is probably right up your alley. There is no nuance. Just sour. Nothing here really to justify the price tag or this beer’s existence.

Leveejr (99) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 20, 2014
2013 bottle poured into teku. Pours a brownish red with brown head. Smells of oak, fruit leather, and slight acid. Taste is quit sour but not too acidic. Nice oaky flavor with a slight fruity leather. Overall very good beer and worth the price tag ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lovely woody and buttery sour aroma. Sweet smooth aspects, but beautiful sourness. Woody, oaky. A great sour red, everything’s just right.

Bottle. Dark ruby with off white head. Aroma is tart with toasted oak. Taste adds lots of sour cherry and acetone. Medium sticky mouthfeel. Awesome.
