bubbleflubber (2042) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Pours a translucent brick-amber into the glass, with a wispy head that reduces to light ring lacing. Soured malts and acidic berries to the nose. Flavors are very similar, soured malt, acidic berries, tart esters, vinous notes, all which finish a nice curt sour of unripened berries and stone fruits. Lively on the palate, medium-bodied and a vinous mouthfeel, this is a great wild Flanders Red. Still great things coming from the Wicked Weed’s Funkatorium. Spot on for the style, complex and substantive, this is one sour fans won’t want to miss. Superb!

JHeath99 (1445) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle. Thanks Wayne! Pours a murky reddish brown with a thin ring of beige head. Aroma of tartness, dark fruit, and wood. Taste of tart, berries, wood, with some malts tossed in.

shrubber85 (9021) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle. Light floral grass and toffee malt aroma. Brown with minimal head. Sweet funky horseblanket and light berry toffee malt flavor. Tasty.

rumproasts (4149) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2015
bottle. Light reddish brown with small head. Sour, with a big red wine hit that lingers. Substantial tart berry with a dry finish. I feel like the base beer is a bit overwhelmed here, but this is an excellent beer.

mikem409 (1849) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle. Murky red with solid white head. Aroma of berry and lemon tang. Taste follows can’t detect date but it’s a nice fruit sour

Dogbrick (9455) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2015
This brew pours a clear dark red color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of berries, funky yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of vine fruits, brett yeast and biscuit malt. The finish is moderately sour with an oak and berry aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

kbutler1 (1377) - North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2015
Bottle. Date bottled 4.3.15. Pours a cedar wood color with a light tan head. Fruity, jelly like aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Caramel, raspberry, and the red wine comes out as well. Not sure I could really pick out the dates. Tasty. 8.5% doesn’t really show.

douglas88 (7252) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2015
On tap at apex. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a medium white head. A big sour woody nose. Rich berries, oak, robust sour cherry. Great flemish brown sour, but the core is very sweet cherries. Awesome.

Sarlacc83 (1366) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2015
Tap at Apex, post CBC A: Opaque red body, thin off-white head. N: Cherry, some balsamic vinegar, acetone, oak, nail polish, red wine grape, some leather, hint of charred barrel, and noticeable diacetyl as the beer warms. T: Quite tart, light sweetness. M: Light body, prickly carbonation, hidden alcohol. O: Decently complex attempt at Flanders Red. It’s very drinkable, and except for the one flaw, well done.

Bottle at Wicked Weed. Poured a ruby tone with light pink head. Flavor is sour berry, sugar. Tart. Another great Wicked Weed sour.
