Bottle shared at Chris’ pad. Clear light amber pour. Caramel malt and sour stone fruit aromas. Super sour cherry notes with big caramel malts, muted wood, and vanilla flavors rounding out the taste. Very well done.. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Courtesy of dschiller. 750mL pours orange with copper hues and supporting a thin near white head of foam. The aroma is a light mix of vinegar, lime, faint barnyard and a bit of apple esteriness. The taste has cherry tartness and thin acidic notes heading into some crushed aspirin tartness and vinegar. Overall I’m liking this as it doesn’t get crazy with tart acidity. b3shine (8864) - Indiana, USA - FEB 15, 2013
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a semi-transparent amberish-orange with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; semi-sweet and funky with barrel notes and a nice, lively mouthfeel. Good beer! daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Amber pour, off white head. I get some odd stuff here. Yeasty funk, tartness, cherries, roasted lemons, leather...Interesting but not really my thing. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Hazy amber color with white head. Sour cherry, tart lemon, nutty brown malt aromas. Medium sour flavors with cherry, tart lemon, and some sharp caramel sweetness--good.

750ml C&C bottle split with friends at Northdown Taproom and Cafe. Served in a mini pint glass.
A: Pours a murky amber and brown combination with a thin off white head the disippates quickly to a thin collar. No real lace left on the glass.
S: Some light oak and cherry tartness is present on the nose with some sweet fruit as well. Smell is decent, but nothing really stands out and I’m not getting any of barrel qualities.
T: The taste follows the nose, but it definitely has more of a lactic sourness to it. Slight bit of funk as well with some tart cherry skins. Again the barrel is really non-existant.
M: Medium carbonation lingering on the lower end with a medium body. There is slight drying finish to this.
O: Well the barrel wasn’t really there and the cherries sort of got muted in the flavor. It was a nice take on the flanders, but overall it didn’t click.

Bottle via Matty and mark. Pours a hazy blond with faint white head. Aroma is vinegar and some musky cherry’s. Funk for sure here. Taste is slight cherry up front and some funkiness. The sourness is super on this one. Overall this is pretty good. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Draft at Devil’s Den in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a dark golden amber color with ruby edges and a half finger off-white head that quickly fades. Minimal spots of lace left behind.
Earthy, funky aroma with tart, vinous fruit, earthy, funky bugs, toasted oak and acetic solvent. A bit more acetic solvent character than I prefer taking away from the other notes a bit but there’s still some sweet vinous fruit and a decent barrel character.
On the thinner end of medium bodied with tart, puckering mouthfeel that’s slightly acetic but not overly harsh. Decent barrel character with toasted oak and vanilla followed by tart, vinous dark fruit and acetic vinegary funk. Slightly lactic with a nice amount of puckering sourness but it’s a bit more acetic/solvent like than I prefer. The dark fruit notes adds some needed sweetness but it could use some more balance. anders37 (26605) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity spicy yeasty sour cherry aroma. Fruity sour tart flavor with weak hints of cherries. Has a fruity sour tart citrus finish. Newk (299) - - AUG 8, 2012
Poured from bottle into a tulip. Pours a good dark red color with a small head.
Very good flemish red aromas of sour cherries, some funk and tart citrus notes as well.
Good depth with a very good medium feel and flavors of sour cherries and a good amount of tart tones as well. Finishes off nice and dry.
This is a real good flemish red. Nice and tart with good flavors and aromas.
