This stuff smells amazing: funky, fruity, sour, spicy. Tastewise, it’s good and sour but a hair too sweet for my taste. Texture is a touch sticky but still not out of line. Really nice and complex thoug. If this was just a hair more dry and it would be perfect.

Remniscent of a Jacobins to me. A very well-rounded flanders red that has am ample sourness, lots of sweetness, and a balanced fruitiness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle share. Pour is reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet and sour - light tart fruits, oak wood, vanilla extract. Flavor is very mellow for a sour ale with notes of oak-aged bourbon, fruity esters, and dark fruit. Nice balance, medium bodied even considering the ABV.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample. Poured a hazy reddish copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy tart fruit and wood aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tart & sour flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.

Moderately funky, good but not great flanders ale. A little sweet for my taste, but still a good sour. Funky nose. It’s slightly tart, a little too sweet, but still tart, dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location/Date:Bottle on January 26th, 2013 during day 2 of Nerd Beer Epic Weekend.
Appearance: Pours a dark maroon.
Aroma: Aroma of tart fruit with a hint of sour.
Taste: Chery, faint tart, not really any bourbon.
Palate:Medium light body
Summary: A sour I actually enjoyed as it was really only a hint of tart. Also, I had no clue this was 10.5% alcohol. I can only drink a little of this but it’s solid.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Bottle at Nerd Beer Epic Weekend, 1/26/13
Aroma: The nose is tart and sour fruit, yeasty too, it is both sweet and funky, bourbon is minimal
Appearance: It pours an unclear reddish-brown without much head or lace
Flavor: Flavor-wise, it has plenty of berry sweetness and tartness to it, and leathery notes
Palate: This one has a good feel, soft carbonation, some acidity, and absolutely no heat
This is a nice sour. It has a good blend of sweetness and tartness, and works quite well. The alcohol is crazy well hidden too. I would have guessed it at about 7-8%. Good stuff.
