Poured this 22 oz. bottle into a Tripel Karmeliet glass. Bottled 7/31/12 batch #1245. The body was a brown leather color and clear. Fine, tan head was small. The second pour was cloudier. No real lacing was present.
The smell was sour candy. Powdery. Melba toast as it warmed. Faint balsamic vinegar and a little spicy. Dark bread and jam. Lots of depth to this one.
The taste was puckering tartness. Sour cherries. Woody. Drying finish. I would not have guessed this one was over 7% ABV.
The body was medium to light with modest carbonation. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

Pours a light reddish amber color with a white head. The aroma is fruity, sweet and sour and a bit oaky. Inviting and quality funky aroma. In the taste, nice acetic sourness and plenty of depth to it as well. A solid base beer is behind the sourness, with sugar plum, cherry and berry notes. This plays nicely with the oak and the sour. Everything is in good balance and the flavor really pops. Body is medium and semi dry with a lingering sour note. Overall, this is a really nice American Wild or Flanders Red. It kind of reminds me of a kriek lambic, not a surprise due to the Michigan cherries employed here. Good to savor every sip.
