Pretty dark orange, head evaporates into a layer, lil bit of lacing.

Lots of oak, cherry, vanilla.

Aforementioned along with a light acidic citrus, raisin. Fairly sour for a Flanders Red Ale.

Nice light carbonation, as it warms up it dissappears.

Really liked this one, cherries and oak were balanced perfectly, along with a nice sour pang more reminiscent of an AWA.

Review from notes

Deep mahogany with garnet hues, quite clear, whitish head that left some bubbles on the glass. Lots of sour cherry, oak, plums, and a bit of sherry as well, indicating its oxidation content. Sweet and sour in the front, presenting a cornucopia of dark fruits and berries, which relays to a farmhouse funkiness and musty slabs of wood. Finishes tart and herbal. Very delicate and a pleasure to drink.
