Dark amber pour, slightly cloudy. Yeasty funky fruit nose with light booze and barrel. I prefer a non-BA (especially Sante's) sour red to this, but it's cool. ineedbeer (2270) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 14, 2017
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. bytemesis (9349) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Aroma is fairly fruity with cherry, raisin, cassis and prune notes. Light toasted bread, dark caramel, toffee and nuts with hints of chocolate and roast. Faint bourbon and oak notes.
Pours dark brown with some auburn hues and a medium large, thick, tan head that shows good retention as it slowly recedes to a thin film that lingers. Light lacing and small legs.
Flavor is slightly sweet with moderate acidity. Lots of cherry, raisin, cassis and prune notes. Some caramel, toffee, toasted bread and nuts with hints of chocolate. Light bourbon and faint oak notes. Light bitterness and a hint of alcohol spice.
Mouthfeel so medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty nice Flanders style sour. These aren't my favorite beers but this one has some nice complexity and the acidity isn't too acetic. It has an interesting twang to it from the reused barrels.
Bottle. I have sat on this one a while. Pours clear hazel, medium beige head, dissipates fairly slowly, good lacing. Aroma is oak, lactic acids, roast, raisin, date, prune. Flavor is medium tart, light funk, acetic, dark fruits, bourbon notes, oak tannin. Medium body. beastiefan2k (4122) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2017
