Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!

A - Poured a very deep red ruby hue with a off white, super thin head that fades almost immediately.

S - Meh, very medicinal , nice oak, but super fake cherry tasting.

T - Taste is equally as bad. Full of cherry cough syrup, oak, bret, and metallic notes.

M - Mouthfeel is okay, Very light carbonation, dry.

O - Overall one of the worst offerings from De Molen I have ever had. Far too heavy on that cherry cough syrup taste.

Flanders is the closest style I can think of...it's Wild/Sour Ale but don't really know how to add this from the styles available here on BA. On-tap at Holy Grale at their De Molen Tap Takeover Event.

A - Pours ruby reddish/brown, off-white head, thin collar.

S - Medicinal/herbal, oak, plastic cherries, brett.

T - Light acidic notes, herbal notes, cherry cough syrup, brett, oak. Slight metallic notes. Finish is a combo of herbal metallic cherries.

M - Light body, light carbonation, dry finish.

O - This beer is mostly "meh" to "ugh". Not that big of a fan an not something I'd go for again. There's better offerings from De Molen, no doubt about it.
