2013 bomber to a goblet
Pours a dark reddish brown with half a finger of foam that's dissipated pretty quickly. Mild carbonation is masked through a haze with very little transparency in the middle, lighting up a bit towards the bottom of the glass. Good lacing, not a bad looking flanders red. Aroma of tart cherry, apple, vinegar, oak, a sweet mild malt and a bit of alcohol. Dark fruit esters also come through bringing everything together. Taste follows well, sour fruits up front, nice toasty oak, and a subtle malt backbone. Feel is good, medium body which leaves my mouth salivating. Overall this years isn't bad. I don't know if it's whether I've gotten more acclimated to sours, but this years doesn't seem as strong as last years, despite having the abv kicked up to seven. Still a great beer, I'm not going to pick up many more at $14 a pop though

Served on tap in a 11oz. goblet.
A- Deep garnet with a light toffee head, good degree of clarity.
S- Sour apple, light vinegar, some oak, maybe a bit of spice and vanilla.
T- More sour apple than anything, then some light vinegar, some oak, finishes dry. Not as complex as Le Terrior IMO.
M- Medium a bit more carbonation then I was expecting.
O- A great American version of the style and one of the best beers I've had from New Belgium. Definitely give this one a try.
Serving type: on-tap
