FOBAB 11. Hazed amber with a thin bubbled head. Sweet malt maple aromas with a note of acidity. Tart earthy kinda sweet dirty. Dirty and kind of a bitter mess. Blah, not too into it. 7/3/5/3/12

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2015 Rerate: super acetic buttery sugary weirdness.
Old rating: Bottle shared at RBSG 2012 Grand Tasting. Pours an orangey amber color with a light tan head. Pretty nice balance between the sweet and sour flavors with winey red fruits toeing the line. Not too harsh/acetic.

750 ml bottle to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; an opaque deep cherry with creme lacing. Smells sout, sweet, and candied. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. One of the best Flanders Reds I’ve ever had!
