Poured from 750ml bottle into tulip.
A - Aggressive pour yielded a fizzy carbonation that formed a head of about a half inch that quickly died off and left no lacing or trace of a head whatsoever. Bubbles and some medium carbonation resonate, and a slightly hazy dark crimson to almost purple beer remains.
S - The smell opens with the tartness of cherries, vinegar, and a slight oakiness. The backend of the scent imparts some slightly darker fruit characteristics, slight plum, raisin, and fig notes.
T - Taste opens with a blast of vinegar that leads into a sharp cherry tartness with some extremely subtle oak character that gives is a sort of red wine flavor, and a slight almost blueberry tart finish lingers on the palate.
M - An initial fizzy carbonation that settles as it warms and the mouthfeel transforms into something almost silky with just a slight bite of carbonation.
O - Fantastic scent, and something about the mouthfeel was almost enigmatic and drew me into the beverage. The appearance is dark, and with its initial pour almost reminds one of coke. The scent is solid and intriguing while the taste lacks a few of the qualities noted in the smell that would've made this a more interesting Flanders.
