Complex and inviting. Ruby-crimson-brown in color. This one tastes almost exactly like its aroma: black cherries, pears, tart, acidic, and a hint of the warmth of bourbon. I’m thinking Gorgonzola might make an interesting pairing.

Strangely smoky without being smoky...I may be confusing this with another aroma. Possibly one of my most favorite beers ever.

Hits the mouth with a pleasant fruity taste, comes across sweet but not like a candy. Aroma is pleasant and the color is dark.

Pretty good but very sweet beer. Sweet and sour beer. Not very hoppy at all but a pretty good beer, would drink again

Brown with red highlights, good head.
Smells sour (lambic like) and woody, the taste is bittersweet and sour and you can feel the oak. Very drinkable and refreshing. Great beer but too sweet to be perfect!

I will start by saying I do not care for Flemish reds. This beer seems to fit the style perhaps even a bit on the sweet side. This one only confirmed my lack of desire for this style

Dark amber color with a slight head. Smells tart and sweet, almost like a balsamic vinegar. Very complex in taste with tart sour notes and sweet notes too. Hate to use it again but it’s like drinking a very nicely aged balsamic vinegar, the same kind of complexities are present with that tart yet sweet flavor. This beer is not for everyone but if you enjoy sour flavors, you’ll enjoy this one.

Reddish brown=maroon in appearance. Fizzy on the tongue w/ a slight sourness. Richer than a cider, but with a pronounced apple fruity taste.
