GABF 2013. Pours a dark orange appearance with a light tan head. Aroma seemed fine with some light vinegar, dark fruits, and black cherries. Unfortunately, I got a bunch of butter in the flavor with just ruined the flavor for me. Strangely enough, none of the other ratings from GABF noted this, which makes me wonder if my pour was from a separate keg or my senses were just off.

Sampled at GABF 2013. A nice tart and fruity flanders sour with wild yeast and lots of cherries. A little sweet, but quite tasty.

16oz screw top can, thanks to DanielCoor. Shared with caterwaul. Really awesome big rich cherry pie and creme in the nose. Mmm... Tastes very much like it smells. Delicious. Cheesecake, and cherry. Much more crisp, smooth, and easy drinking than the flemish we just sampled prior to this (Cuvee Freddy). Medium body, with a crisp lighter carbonation. Finish is only slightly sticky. Moderate sweet taste, good moderate tart sourness, light spiciness. Mostly clear amber / red orange color. Last pour is hazy. Minimal greyish head. Really tasty flanders. Surprisingly easy drinking. Sometimes diving into a flanders on my own makes me a little nervous, but I could have easily chiefed this one on my own.

16 oz can shared by DanielCoor. Pours a clear golden brown color with a thin white film. The aroma is tart cherry, vinegar, sweet malts, vanilla, lactic with some oak character. The flavor is much of the same; tart cherry, caramel, vinegar, acidic, lactic with some oak.

16 oz. aluminum bottle shared by DanielCoor- thanks! Pours a hazed amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of thick butter, vanilla, brown sugar, cheese, melon, and berries. Flavor is marginally better, but still sweet and buttery, with vanilla, sour candy, berry fruits, and some funk. Sweet and sour, with a medium body and moderate carbonation. What a mess. Didn’t work at all. Had this right after CIB Cheri Tart, and this was no better.

Aluminum bottle (filled to the brim). Mixture of lactic acid, apple cider vinegar, and cherry aroma. Ruby amber with minimal head. Sweet-tart cherry malt and light sour milk and horseblanket flavor. Nice body. Very pleasant - "Its like I’m wearing nothing at all!"

Pint can from brewery. Pours a rich orange with off white head with no lacing as it dissipates. Smells of creamy cherry. The flavor is great with warm vanilla and cherry with a sour funky finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz screw top can to snifter (shared by DanielCoor). Looks good for a Flanders; a semi-transparent amber with white lacing. Smells good too; sweet, tart, and slightly funky. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced, with. An average mouthfeel. Solid beer.

Thanks, Josh! Fuckin’ righteous can, and a wicked cool beer. Translucent copper brown, minimal carbonation. Nice nose of wet oak, vanilla, cherry, and lacto. Mouthfeel is nicely full, a bit smooth in places, mildly acetic, but the carbonation has a cola-like feel as well. Flavors are full, quite brightly yeasty in places and pleasantly acetic. A young oud bruin, and an enjoyable one for sure.
