Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is fruit, malt, chocolate, spice. All mild tho. Med body, or nearly. Somehow the mix of flavors isn’t working right. Reminding me of an age old candy bar I didn’t really like very much. Never stopped me then, but it might now. There’s fruit and pepper and chocolate in the finish. Some citrus, I guess. But comparing this to a Flanders Red? Well maybe it is a bit tart. Still. djd07 (15651) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2013

Supposed to be "sour" My Ass! this one is pretty insipid, light spiciness but not much else. slowrunner77 (12994) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 22, 2014
"A surprisingly pleasant floral, fruity aroma. Slightly tast berry sweetness too, ditto for the flavor, with a little caramel malt. Slightly tangy finish. the feel is a bit light and prickly, but really, this is better than expected. Winter mixer."
