A: The beer is very hazy murky amber in color. It poured with a thin white head that completely dissipated.
S: Light to moderate aromas of oak and sour cherries are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell, but seems to be more mellow and doesn't have any distinct characteristics.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I'm not sure if this Flanders Red Ale is unblended, as it doesn't have that much complexity. It also seems to have more oak than sourness.

Note: 2012 vintage.
