Thanks to nate321 for this bottle! Pours a dark red with a small beige rim on top that leaves somewhat good lacing. Nose is of light acetone, oak, wine, moderate vinegar and light cheese. Taste is of balsamic vinegar like it should but also incredibly oaky. Grapes, cherries and light spirits (must be the cognac) make up the rest of the flavors. Both body and carbonation were medium and acidity level is moderate and refreshing. Easy drinking enough. Overall a good but not great Flanders-style ale.

750ml bottle pours a murky brown with some creamy, white head. Nose has some balsamic vinegar, mild wood, a little grapey, malt, some caramel, some vanillin, green bell pepper. Flavor has lots of vegetal notes, caramel too, some fig/raisin, herbal, sumac, grape jelly, some vinegar. Tart finish.

A dark red pour. Big tart aroma. Big oak with an acidic sour to follow. Slight alcholic. Good stuff.

mverity (362) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Pours a deep caramel brown with some light tan head. Fair lacing, good legs, thin collar persists. Aroma is dry hay, very light smoke, tart plum and dark cherry all with a big brett funk. Taste is much like the aroma with the dark fruits playing well with the earthy smokiness. I get a faint herbaceousness as well. High carbonation and medium body. Very bubbly on the tongue

Pours a deep mahogany color with some ruby edges and two fingers of tight eggshell foam. Nose is inviting with ripe burgundy acidity, soft roasted grain, sweet pipe smoke, violets, funky old wood, caramel, dark fruits... Mmmm palate follows with a mysterious fruitiness that is both unique and delicious. Its like soft cognac soaked plums, with cherries, cranberries and pinot noir grapes added into the mix. Nice backbone of soft medium roasted malts with hints of cocoa and caramel that back up the moderate acidity and mingle with an earthy leather and mushroom nuance. Really soft and deliciously delicate sour beer !

Bottle. Pours deep dark maroon, with a small creamy head. Aroma is tart and fruity, with canned cherries, red berries, oak and cognac barrels, as well as blackcurrants, wine grapes and tannins. Full body, with soft to no carbonation. Flavour is tart with blackcurrants, red berries and cherries, as well as oak barrels and tobacco. Tart fruity finish with grapes and tannins.

umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to Jason for sharing. Reddish-brown pour with a small head that quickly fades to a thin ring. Aromas are overripe cherries, musty oak, light barnyard, and vinegar. Taste has a light to medium sourness. Moderate musty funk with lots of red fruit and a touch of booze. Decent but I’m just not loving sour red/browns lately.
