Aroma is funky sourness with cherries up front and light wood. Taste is puckering red tart berries, young lemon fruit, balsamico and leads to that same vinegar like taste as the original has. This one is a tad more rounded though. I'm sorry, I know that this is a top of the line Flanders Red, but I can't really find the awesomeness here. It's OK in my book, and interesting enough to at least finish it.

Flaska systembolaget. Bärnstensfärgad vätska. Vinös doft. Syrliga bär, fat, trä, jordkällare och citron. Syrlig, mustig och lite kryddig smak. Röda bär, jäst, fay och moserande vin. Jordig och syrlig.

330ml bottle. Clear deep red-brown with small white head. Aroma is red berries, cherry, raspberry, slight balsamic vinegar and oak. Taste is tart and acidic with red berries, grapes, cherry and wood. Medium mouthfeel, light to medium carbonation and mostly acidic grape aftertaste matched by some red berry sweetness.

@ Basunen 17-9-30: Riktig trevlig med stor syrlighet och tydlig ton av fat samt malt och torkat frukt.
