4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(labelled as gilgamesh) pours hazy red-brownish with a creamy light beige head, good retention and lacing spots. red fruits, toasted coconut, tobacco, delicate woodsy and bourbon vanilla notes, nice blend of lactic/acetic (read not too acetic, just perfect in fact). surprisingly never boozy. moderate carbonation, light to medium body - oily, very nice grassy-peppery and lightly astringent and acidic finish. awesome ba-concoction again from upland.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, as gilgamesh. Nice dark red copper color with white head. Nice soured aroma, sour cherries, suprisingly not acetic, rather citric, fruity, with traces of bourbon and oak. Taste is a nice mix of tart and sweet, not too much of either, not overly acidic. Medium to full bodied palate but rahter delicate considering the abv. Pleasantly surprised by this beast’s drinkability.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, pours a hazy dark amber / mahogany with a medium beige head. Nose brings out sour red fruits, a touch of vinegar, oak bourbon barrels, and some acetic notes. Flavour brings out loads of boozy sour dark fruits, loads of alcohol, some acetic notes, and a little vinegar. Quite boozy, certainly reminiscent of the 10+%. Fairly complex, with quite a bit of vinegar and acetic notes. Solid take on a Flanders Red. Overrated, however.
