Dark brown beer with a beige head. Quite sour and fruity aroma, very interesting, lots of raspberries as well. Medium sourness and some sweetness from the malts. Quite interesting flavor. Raspberries in the taste as well. Quite fresh and light texture. Interesting new experience for me. The sourness does not go overboard. I really like it.

Possibly one of the best beers I have tried. The combination of the red ale and Woody aged taste is just at the perfect balance and then it is finished with a lovely sourness. So delicious and moreish.

Backlog. Synchronizing with notes and Untappd.
Red fruit, vinegar, funk, wood. Nicely balanced with a very round sourness and not dominating vinegar.

I rate this just short of perfect--Flanders Red which is so far as I know the most consistently available Grand Cru in Southern California. The first time I had it, I thought it was a Belgian Red that had gone bad, but after my first glass I wanted another. It nails that sweet spot where the hardened beer snob and the sour novice will both enjoy it---fantastic first choice if you have a friend that you are trying to get into sours!

Dark rusty brown with short lived beige head. Quite sour. Notes of lemon, herbs and horse blanket. Medicinal and vinous qualities make for a very complex beer. High carbonation.
