bottle shared by tom10101, thanks dude. cloudy medium dark copper pour with a small light beige head showing some retention and lacing. chewy fruity and spicy maltiness - cranberries, layers of complex caramel and nutty malts, very spicy in fact, oak, bittering herbs, tart - complex array of acids - shy acetic notes. moderately low carbonation, light to medium body - oily, nicely tart, lightly astringent and grassy-spicy finish. excellent!

mathieuc (1456) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Pours a nice red/orange with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of red fruits, yogurt and overall really nice and Flanders-ish. Taste is vinous and fruity, offers some vinegar of the good kind. More berries and small red fruits in the flavor. Mouthfeel is juicy/vinous, body medium and carbonation moderate. Overall a nice rendition of the style, not over the top and really balanced. Nice!

Bottle (500 ml). From John, thanks! Slightly hazy copper/amber with a small off-white head and no lacing. Aroma is of vanilla, oak, red fruits, caramel, and acetic notes. Taste is also of oak, vanilla, caramel, red fruits, acetic notes and hints of ketchup. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oaky finish. Good attempt at an American Sour Red. Decent complexity. Tasty.

> Spot on Flemish red with big oak and cranberry

[ Bottle ][ 500mL ][ TheEpeeist ][ Trade ][ Tired Hands Stemware ][ 7.12.14 ]
>> Pours clear deep amber red with reddish tea core. Wispy, small head brings exceptional webby lacing. Nose is vanilla frosting, sweet cherry, grapefruit, pound cake. Taste is Oerbier Reserva like with mild tannic cranberry and oak, leathery fruit skin/grapefruit, low to medium citric keeps this from being a 100% lemon juice bomb. Big lactic focusing on cranberry. Very nice. Mild bitterness throughout.

>!< a tad anesthetic, fairly tannic

MrChopin (3428) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Hazy red sepia, thin dense cream head. Acetic and playdoh heavy plum nose, light oak astringency, character dominated by uncontrolled yeast. Heavy plastic and berry brett dominates front, juicy mid is tart, sticky, cleansing through the oaky and full, bubbly finish, drying and bitter despite high acidity. Odd beer, perhaps better out of the bottle.

Pre-DLD bottle share at Hampton Inn. Pour is hazy amber/red with a very small white head. Aroma and flavor are of sour mix, oak, apple cider, earth, and fruit juice. Finish is slight booze, fruit, and sour funk.
