Currants, a light funk, some spice and a bit of alcohol on the nose. The taste is dark fruits with a pretty high sourness and a nice wine-like character. A nice carbonation with some oak coming through as the beer warms. One of my favorite sours! Imaena (2328) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - NOV 27, 2016
Bottle. This is a really well done sour ale. There is so much going on here that you get a different angle every sip. Scipio (1185) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Thank you to Brad for sharing this with me. Pours a copper in color with a quickly fading beige head. The aroma gives off spices, grape, wine, oak, apple, and alcohol, without any of these impressions standing out over others. The taste makes you think of wine. It has grape, spices, alcohol, and vinegar and some earthiness. Its quite tart, with mild sourness. This is medium in body, with a sticky texture, and has some soft, bubbly carbonation. Altogether, this one is different, with many impressions of wine as advertised.

Imperialny Flanders ze znakomicie ukrytym alkoholem i wyraźnymi jeżynami. Wyraźny, acz delikatny ocet winny, bardzo dużo nut czerwonego, wytrawnego wina. Podobny do Oblivion z Wicked Weed. Mesjasz (1613) - Lodz, POLAND - OCT 30, 2016

Pours mahogany into a tumbler. Off-white head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Cinnamon, cherry and clove aromas. Tart with dark cherry upfront turning to pith, sour earth and cabernet before the jaw clenching, medium length finish. tmoreau (4593) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Shared 12.68 oz. bottle poured to a snifter showing a lightly hazed, amber highlighted, brown tone, with a modest layer of tan foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was vinous, dark grape & currant. Ditto on the taste, tart & tangy, with a hint of woodiness as cedar. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, and complementary, tannic bitterness. A treat for us Midwesterners!
