From a 750 ml (bottled 6/2012) into a tulip.
A-Dark, cola brown in color with a short-lived, light tan head. The foam was maybe a half-finger at first, but quickly dissipated.
S-You know from the smell that this thing is gonna be sour. I picked up some cherry, some vinegar, and a sweet malty component that balanced out the pucker. Also a little bit of oaky funk.
T-This brew was quite sour in taste as you would expect from the smell. Flavor-wise, I got sour cherry, some sour apple, and vinegar. All the flavors were quite concentrated and supported by a sweet malty baseline. What surprised me was how clean the flavors were....nicely integrated with one another.
M-Medium body (maybe a touch light for the style) with a nice hit of prickly carbonation that counter-acted the sour flavors. Drying finish.
O-This may beat out La Folie as my favorite New World oud bruin/Flanders red. The flavors were intense (this thing was SOUR) but so cleanly meshed with one another. This is not a funky, earthy, barnyard lambic, but a nice drinking sour brew with great balance between sweet and sour, and a drinkable feel that would work well with dinner or (as I had it) with a soft cheese and crackers.

A deep copper beer with good and a few sea monkeys (aka floaters). The head is very long lasting composed of compact, tan bubbles that leave a fine lacing on the glass.
Moderately strong aroma of current, a moderately-light tartness and some leathery, barnyard funk. A low, carmel malt sweetness and moderate dark fruit esters.
A sweet-tart flavor that is far more tart than sweet. There is a a lot of red current flavor along with some dark fruit and caramel malt for flavor. A light oak flavor and touch of leather with only a light sweetness the balance is strongly tart. The finish is medium with fruit flavor after taste.
A medium to medium-full bodied beer with a strong level of carbonation. There is a bit of carbonic bite.
Some of the class Flanders Red flavors of red currents with a sweet-tart balance and low carmel in a supporting malt body. I like that this one is fairly strongly tilted towards the tart and lightly sweet making it an immensely food friendly.

ahh the Bruery. If anyone tales you lightly in the year 2010, they are just effing high... You have the ability to over perform so consistently in everything you do and this baby right here was no exception.
This most recent release is no different than most of the bruery's recent ventures... freaking dope. The only place I really struggled was in not comparing it to other sours of a similar vein and price tag. If you charge the same amount as a bottle of Consecration, my frugal, 25 year old brain will immediately compare you to it.
The dark cherry was the standout nose, followed closely by oak. The taste was a very similar story and the dry cabernet-esque taste almost vaporized on the back end of the palate (nice). In a blind taste test I dont know if I could tell this beer from LaFolie, which is by no means an insult... I love the hell out of that beer. I just really hoped for a characteristic to grab me by the booboo

A - Pours a murky reddish brown with more than one finger of tan head. Head has very good retention. Surprising for the style.
S - Earthy, funky tartness. Also quite a bit of oak and sour cherry in the nose.
T - Taste also has a significant funkiness to go with the tartness, giving a pretty full-bodied taste. Taste like a 'dirty' Flanders, but in a good way. Very tasty and quite oaky.
M - Medium mouthfeel with a nice earthiness. Finishes dry.
O - Probably the funkiest Flanders red I've had, with only moderate tartness. Still, a very tasty take on the style.

Big thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy red-amber color with a tan head. The aroma is tart cherries with some oak, vanilla and brown sugar. The flavor is tart cherries with some oak. Very drinkable and very dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
