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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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% doesnít really show.

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.

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. Itís very drinkable, and except for the one flaw, well done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Murky reddish brown pour with a small head that fades to a messy ring. Somewhat faint aroma but good. Cherries, oak, red wine, and balsamic. Tastes like balsamic, grape skins, and oak mostly. Some red fruit too. Light sourness, moderate tartness in the finish. Good but nothing special.

Tap @ Funkatorium. Copper with decent head and lacing. Smells like an Old Fashioned. Tastes tart but then sweet. Tart then round.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice deep sour aroma. The color is a beautiful burgundy with a tan/white head that dissipates fairly quickly. A nice medium body with effervescent carbonation. The taste starts tart and sour but that falls off fairly quickly giving way to the refreshing quality of blackberries, which evolves into a slightly leathery/oaky aftertaste. This beer is complex and fucking delicious.
