Had this on-tap at my first visit to the brewpub during a fun Boston/Worcester weekend. $6 a ~12oz pour. This was listed as 9% ABV.

Comes in a flute-type glass. Very dark color with some reddish purple highlights. A small off-white head sticks around decently turning to a thin ring towards the end.

Smell is a little on the weak side but is enticing. Lots of tart dark fruits, vinegar and oak.

Taste - wow, great stuff here. Intense dark fruit gives off a red wine feel (berries and cherries come to mind) and is matched nicely with a good kick of tart funk. Vanilla, vinegar oak and light spice also present. A very well-rounded sour, hits the mark in every aspect.

Good mouthfeel with carbonation that's on the high side. Keeps you sipping, this goes down easy for 9%.

This was awesome, this could stand up to Russian River's wild ales - it reminds me of Consecration a bit come to think of it. The funk doesn't tame the fruit and the fruit doesn't tame the funk, intense on both sides. Bottle this!

I had this on tap at the brewpub, $6 for what I believe to be a 10oz pour. It arrived a very dark red color, more purple-brown actually, with zero light transmission. A healthy foam on top, tan colored with a fine-celled structure.

Strong cherry aromas are the first thing to greet my nose, followed abruptly by a nearly vinegar note which immediately says "Flanders Red Ale". Not bad at all for that style, not really the cherry wild ale I'd anticipated but whatever. On tasting it's immediately sour, extremely so really (which I like but could see it as off-putting for some). The cherries present nicely in the aftertaste, but the abrasiveness is the dominant characteristic for sure. This rapidly became a sipper for me, as does most any Flanders Red I try. No sweet malt/sugar counterplay like you get from some of the classics, and honestly I can't tell which approach I like more.

Pretty happy to have found this available, the first time I've seen it after 2.5 years of infrequent stops.
