22oz bottle from Antioch Wine and Spirits, 2012 vintage, split with my bride. Pours a deep, reddish brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is sour, cherry, a little roasty. Medium on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is nice balance of sweet and sour, cherry, vinegar, oak, malty, nutty sweetness, with a light sour finish. Very tasty. More sour on the nose than on the palate.

Acquired at Rattle n Hum in NYC in July. Paid $25 for the bomber. 2010 Vintage enjoyed in a snifter at fridge temp (around 48 F). Bottle #1549 - 10/01/2010

A - Murky and cloudy amber red. Fairly dark for the style. No head at all.

S - Nice raspberry tartness and cherry tart on the nose. Hint of oak.

T - Dominating Flanders Red taste up front. Very oaky, tart and lots of cherries. Very much a flanders beer. No hints of the wine at all. Tart finish. Semi-sweet.

M - medium carbonation, light body. Sort of an acidic finish..hints of apple cider vinegar at the finish.

O - Would have been nice to have this fresh. Was it less acidic at bottling?

22oz bottle picked up at the brewpub on Clybourn during one of their Black Friday events. 2010 Vintage, bottled on date of 10/01/2010. Pours a clear, glowing ruby-brown colored body with a finger-width, fizzy, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is tart cherries with a nice dry oak, some funk, and a light cherry sweetness. A subtle malt backing, a light acidity, and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is similar. Tart cherries with a light sweetness, a good amount of oak, and a light funk. A touch of smooth maltiness in the middle before the oak and funk pick it up a bit as this ends dry, woody, and somewhat vinous with a nice tartness, light acidic, a moderate funk, and a light cherry sweetness. Lengthy, clean aftertaste following a medium-light body and a lively carbonation. Overall, an awesome beer. Dry, clean, and balanced between the tartness, barrel, funk, and light sweetness. Definitely not the most complex, but really well done and very enjoyable.

rarbring (2288) - Linkping, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2012
Aroma: Smelling of vinegar, funky stable, sweet fruits and tart cherries.
Appearance: A red brown clear brew, a small pinkish head, little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Starting sweet fructose, apples, cherries, red vinegar and bitter cherry seeds.
Palate: Little carbonation, fresh texture, a medium small body, a light sour dry finish.
Overall: A really nice american Flemish beer, not at all as sweet as I feared.
Note: Bottle 650 ml at Monks Wallingatan. Reviewed 2012-09-12.

On tap at the Night of the Funk 2012. Tart cherry skins and hints of acetic and lactic acid give way to a smakingly sour and dry finish. Brett earthiness is great,

2010 22 ounce bottle pours an amber brown color with aromas of tart cherries, oak, vinegar, and some light funk. Flavors are tart cherries up front with a vinegary aftertaste. Cant drink a ton of these bottles back to back, but good enough to enjoy and wake up the taste buds.

Amber with lacy off-white head. Smells tart with red fruit. Taste is nice, tart and clean, carbonation is good. This beer is very nice, one of the better American sours I have had.
