poured from bottle into snifter
A - Reddish copper, low carbonation and a head that dissipates almost immediately.
S - Apple cider vinegar, sour cherries and granny smith apple, oak and a subtle vanilla aroma.
T - Similar if not exactly the same as the nose. Woody and tart. Sour cherries and apple.
M - Produces a small pucker. Acidic with a tart and dry finish.
O - Not a bad offering from New Belgium. Tastes like a dumbed down Rodenbach. Which I guess would make since due to the fact their head brewer helped New Belgium with this project. I have heard that the 2007 vintage of this beer is phenomenal. Overall the 2012 hits me as a decent sour but, there are much better offerings out there when it comes to Flemish red's and brown's.
