Big thanks goes out to MSquared2 for sharing this one at a recent Random Sunday Tasting! Bottle 944 of 1500! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured yellow-orange with a minimal white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, tart, fruit, cherry, and funk. The flavor was of sweet malt, cherry, funk, fruit, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. When I looked at this bottle, I really had no idea what it was if I am honest. However, what I found was rather interesting if I’m honest. There was definitely a lot going on in this one that you never would have guessed by just looking at the name of the brew. The flavor was very nicely balanced and really helped to awaken your palate. A definite must try if you get the chance and I hope to do so again in the future sometime.

Big thank you to Deadbolt82 for getting me this 2012 CBA Beer of the Year!! 940/1500 Poured into a Bruery tulip.

Appearance. Pours a hazy pink-peach colour with a finger of thick off-white head that leaves some great bands of lace.

Smell. Tart cherries, old wood and a bit of leather, red wine, a little bit of red berries and some nice sweet horse-barn funk. Smells really, really good.

Taste. Sweet and sour cherries, some dry musty funk, lightly bitter oak, and a little red wine.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, medium+ smooth and fine carbonation.

Overall. I love this style and this beer was a real treat. Pretty expensive at almost $10 for the 341ml bottle, but well worth trying if you like a good Flanders Red.

Bottle: Poured a reddish color ale with a medium size light pink head with average retention and light lacing. Aroma consists of tart notes with some oak and sour cherries flavour. Taste is also a mix between some oak with some tart notes and some light sour cherries notes also noticeable. The acidic notes are very much subdued which makes this beer very drinkable. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Maybe a tad overpriced but I would probably buy again nonetheless.

***Bottle 900/1500***

Poured from a 341ml. bottle, bottled May 2012.

Appearance: Body is a dark rosé color with about 2-3 fingers of good sheeting. The head is pinkish a bit.

Smell: Tart cherries, sour oak and a bit of raspberry sweetness.

Taste: Slight red wine with tart cherries, wood and red grapes. Starts tart and ends a tiny bit sweet.

Mouthfeel: Low carbonation but feels fizzy a bit and acidic as well.

Overall: I found it lacking and too mellow for the style. There are better options that are less expensive than this one.

29 months in bottle. Very smooth. Not so sour compared to typical red flanders. Wildberries notes, oak and sugar. Slightly sour. Nice beer

Bottle from hoppypocket for CanBIF Fall 2013.

A - Pours a cloudy deep grapefruit colour. Like a dark blood orange or something, with a light hint of amber. Strong carbonation coming up to what has settled out as a one finger very light pink head. Good half finger of retention and spotty lace.

S - Tart grapes, dusty, wood, some sweet berries.

T - Sweet up front with a kool aid type fruitiness, some sharp tartness with lemon candies too. Good sweet/tart combo. Sweet fruitiness in the finish akin to watermelon maybe. A bit of raspberry. This beer has a good combo of sweet berry flavours and a tartness that gets much milder further along.

M - Strong carbonation, lighter than usual body, and a dryness and some tartness to finish.

O/D - A pretty good Flemmish style. Could use more woodiness and tartness, but otherwise it was quite drinkable. Enjoyed it.

Thanks to Rutager for generously giving me this one. I just hope he doesn't expect anything too hugein return for his generosity. Bottle 943/1500.

A: Crimson red liquid with good clarity with 1/4" cream/tan coloured head that dissipated quickly.

S: Smells like a Flanders Red Ale alright. Sour funk and some yeast.

T: Oak, cherries, sweet malt with a slightly tart sour funk finish. Quite refreshing.

M: Medium viscosity and a medium to high level of medium carbonation.

O: Very easy drinking and very tasty. Not nearly as sour as it smelled, but the oak and cherry flavours were extremely nice.
