Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled May 8th 2012.
Out of the bottle pours with lots of fizzy and cola sounding snapping carbonation. Body forms with a dark walnut brown body with a real nice mocha like head, but it doesn't last at all. As the snapping pops away, nothing is left, not even a pencil thing collar. The head color was real nice, but too bad I hardly got to witness it. This looks like Kvass with a little less carbonation. Too bad.
A good sense of Flanders brown ale sensing sourness on first smell. A quick tart and vinous nose, sour cherries. Quite subtle but nice.
Palate hits with a true VERY tart punch up front. VERY sour but tolerable, with a good acidity that isn't painful. Aftertaste brings lots of lemon and lime juice. Oak aging round character and feel is somewhat lacking here, the body is a little bit wet, but it works well with a vinous palate.
Overall It is dark very true, and truly TART. Would love to try this again sometime, I am wondering if this could have been better.
