Enjoyed on tap at Beachwood BBQ during their sourfest last year. A darker burnt copper kind of color, thin head on it, beige it appears. It doesn't do much in the lace department, there was never a substantial head formation to measure how well it made lace, much less discussing retention beyond that.
A mildly tart, acidic aroma permeates the nose. Enjoyable, you get some minimal intrusions of wood barrel in the aroma as well.
Flavor profile leans towards cherry tarts. Notes of apple come on as well. There is some sweetness, but nothing approaching Lindemans territory here. Funkiness doesn't seem developed, this one comes off all modernized and clean. I think I heard they pastuerize this stuff now, so it won't be growing in the bottle, this may explain the lack of funk, I don't care, its not something I went in hoping for either way. Some brown malt/ale type of leanings when you look beneath the fruit flavors and sour/tart aspects of the beer.
Its a good flanders brown, the cost seems to keep going up, but I don't mind picking up one of these every year.
Serving type: on-tap
