Cloudy orange/red with minimal head. Aroma is fruity, bright, tart, light funk, sweet. Medium body. Flavor has a sharp tart bite right off the bat. Sweet fruits balance the tart punch, light sweet malt, cherry, tropical bright fruits, and light funk. I generally stay away from collaboration beers because they rarely live up to the hype. I’m very happy to have been talked into this one. Top-notch stuff here.
Bottle, shared at Northern Monk. Hazy, pale amber. Skim of white. Nose has cherry stone. Almond. Cherry juice. Some woody notes. Taste is sweet and fruity, with some woody, tart, dry qualities. Bit of a gluey mouthfeel. Light tart finish. Ok. IndianaRed (4647) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 15, 2017
On Tap slightly hazy orange. Trace head and lacing. Tart and rather bitter. Fairy hoppy for a flanders "red" bluejacket74 (1992) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2017
750 ml caged and corked bottle, 2016 vintage (Limited Re-Release). Served in a MadTree Teku, the beer pours a hazy burnt orange color with about an inch off-white head that stuck around for a while. There’s also a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like apricot, lemon, funk, red berries, and sweet spiciness. Taste is similar to the aroma, there’s lemon, green apple, tart berries, funk, grainy malt, oak, mineral and some caramel flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and is well carbonated. It’s also easy enough to drink. I thought this was a good enjoyable wild ale, I missed it the first time it was released but glad I was able to pick up a bottle this time around. Definitely worth a try! $14.99 a bottle. zoucrew102 (1880) - - DEC 23, 2016
750ml corked bottle, 2016 vintage. Lemony aroma with notes of pine, Brett funk and green apple. Pours dark golden colored with one finger of white head that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with lemony citrus flavor with notes of pine and sweet tropical fruit. Finishes smooth and dry with tart green apple and spicy Brett funk. Very nice. onceblind (9708) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Hazy deep golden under a thin foamy white top. Lovely bright aroma of pine and lemon and sour funk and barleywine-esque malts. Smooth and gently sour flavor that’s a little lemony, tropical, gentle sourness, gentle apricot and a gentle nutty English malt. Really smooth and damn tasty and too complex for me to break down into words.

Sour more than expected.... Very good! Medium flavorxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 50belair (3643) - Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle. Opaque amber pour with an off white head. Not getting much aroma wise. Mildly sour, with brett, green apple, biscuit, and malty characteristics. It’s definitely not a "traditional" Flander’s Red for sure. Kinda of a bastardized Frankensteinish version but still not all together repulsive. It’s more a kin to a wreck on the side of the freeway that intrigues you. Average body and mouthfeel.
