Dark brown color. Thin head. Nice sour tart nose with lots of plums, dark fruit and a bit of oak. Good fruit character, modest sourness, the plums really shine. Low carbonation. Medium body. Smooth. Oak andplums linger in the finish. Good stuff.

Waxed bottle from Cap Tap. Pours darkly ruddy purple with a beige head. Aroma is plum with hints of some sort of whisky. Med body. Or so. Flavor is lots of plum, wood, earth, and something making me think of sour red/brown. Moderately sour. Tasty stuff.

superspak (6015) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2017
375 ml bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red/light copper/brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big tart red/black cherry, plum, raisin, fig, currant, berry, red grape, toasted oak, hay, straw, grass, caramel, brown sugar, and brown bread; with lighter notes of leathery/musty funk, red wine vinegar, pepper, vanilla, toffee, whiskey, and yeast/oak/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/light acidic yeast, plums, dark/bready malt, and whiskey barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart red/black cherry, plum, raisin, fig, currant, berry, red grape, toasted oak, hay, straw, grass, caramel, brown sugar, and brown bread; with lighter notes of leathery/musty funk, red wine vinegar, pepper, vanilla, toffee, whiskey, and yeast/oak/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness and light yeast/oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of red/black cherry, plum, dark fruit, berry, red grape, toasted oak, hay, straw, grass, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toffee, vanilla, whiskey, light funk/vinegar, and yeast/oak/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/light acidic yeast, plums, dark/bready malt, and whiskey barrel flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness balance, and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from tartness/acidity. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, fairly acidic/tannic, and lightly silky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 7.5%. Overall this is an excellent Flanders brown ale! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/light acidic yeast, plums, dark/bready malt, and whiskey barrel flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mellowly lactic/tannic/drying finish. Great fruit presence, Brett complexity, and dark/bready malt flavors; with just enough Lacto to balance the sweetness. Nice whiskey barrel presence as well. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
