2013 bottle, this is my 3rd time having this I believe. Updated from a 4.5 'Had' rating.
A - Murky maroon with some orange highlights and a tan head. A thin ring and some spots of a cap remain by the end. Some flecks sit at the bottom.
S - Pretty sour with lots of lemon and dark fruit (cherries mostly) front and center. Lots of oak too with some vanilla and caramel as well.
T - Some more earthy funk and vinous tones showing up here, the main focus remains straight up puckering lemony tartness. Sour cherries prevalent as well but light on the 'dark fruit' end of the spectrum, considering the style. Nice vinegar, buttery oak barrel, and light vanilla sweetness.
M - Somewhat big feeling and smooth with medium carbonation. Sourness forces you to sip and savor.
O - Intense sourness overpowers most of the semblance of your typical Flanders, maybe would've liked it more balanced overall but still quite good.

on draft at beer study in chapel hill. into a snifter.
pours a murky brown with a half inch head. smell is of tart cherries..as expected. taste is very much the same as the nose, tart cherries and not much else. good..though not superb. medium bodied, mild carbonation.
overall pretty good, but not too memorable .

Poured at the tasting room. Brownish red pour, mostly clear, with a small white head that recedes quickly. Big time sour vinegar aroma, stronger than any other sour I have had. Maybe some light sweet apples and cherries as well. Flavor follows with a massive hit of sour, some light funky vinegar, and a bit of sour fruits. There is a big dry oak influence here that differentiates this from others I have had in the style. Light sweet malts remain on the palate. This was heavier than the Berazzled, and definitely hit the taste buds hard. Enjoyable.
