A: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had a dark brown color and a thick consistency. There was an inch of foamy, long-lasting head. Below average lacing.

S: A bracing, yet inviting aroma of cherries and a definite sourness.

T: Tasted of cherries (a whole lot of cherries), a powerful sourness, and brett. Like the aroma the flavor is so strong, it's almost overwhelming at first. You quickly get used to it and realize it's a great flavor.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a lively, prickly finish. Medium-bodied.

O: If you love sour beers and if you love cherries, this is a good beer for you. Everyone else should stay away. This is a bold, take no prisoners kind of beer with a lot of personality.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

The color is a deep and murky ruby with active carbonation. The head is off white and foamy.

It has a heavy cherry aroma. Vinegar. Brown sugar.

The flavor is sour dark cherries. Tart and sour, yet finishes with a sweetness. Heavy dose of Brett.

Full body with sparkling carbonation.

A top notch Flanders that has very distinct flavor.

Serving type: on-tap
