(bottle - 750 ml) Dark red pour with a fizzy tan head. Tart and fruity aroma. Some acidic notes that are counter-balanced by very sweet and fruity notes. Caramel notes at the start of the flavor that moves to a tart and sour funky note that goes back to fruity and sweet then to oaky and more sour. Layers of complex flavors with a funky and tart aftertaste. Big fan.

BrettTaylor (512) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Poured from bottle into snifter. Pours a mahogany color with a slightly off-white head about two fingers high. The head dissipates down to a few millimeters thick. Nice typical sour brown aroma - notes of cherry, sour fruit, some grape, touch of leather. Taste - very tart (obviously), lots of brett character with earthiness, touch of vanilla. Mouthfeel is a full body, thick on the tongue, and lively carbonation level. Finish is medium length and pleasant.

Bottle into a wine glass. Cloudy dark red-brown, minimal tan head. Big leathery, sour berry nose, earthy. Lots of vanilla oakiness. Very tart, some sweetness. Medium body, very acidic, pretty high carbonation, very effervescent. Pleasant mouthfeel. Long, dry finish. Very good.

Pours dark brown with a soapy beige head. Aroma of vinegar, musty barnyard, dark fruit, and wood. Extremely tart with sour cherry, hints of red wine, and oak. Outstanding!

Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Quite pleased to find this on draft for a growler fill at Whole Foods Short Pump. Pours a medium reddish amber, slight head. Aroma is sour cherry and very faint vanilla. Flavor is sour cherry, pleasingly tart without going over the top, with notes of vanilla and perhaps the faint hint of chocolate. A very nicely executed Flemish with the balance a touch more to the sour than the malt. Good acetic character.

slowrunner77 (5804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
"a fairly traditional flanders that has a bit more kick in the aroma department than the flavor. juuust a bit more simplistic, and less sour than expected, but damn tasty and drinkable. aroma of oak, tart cherries, leather. a tiny bit of sweetness and a smooth body. very nice beer, approachable and complex at the same time."

trapped (823) - New York City, TURKEY - SEP 17, 2014
Drought. Inky black with miniscule beige foamy head that dissipated quickly, soir cherry-coffee-bourbon aroma, pleasanty sour taste with bourbon at the background, low carbonation, medium finish with sour aftertaste. Very refreshing and easy to drink despite the alcohol content.
