On tap at Stogies n Hops

Color is hazy deep red with a thin tan head. A bit of lacing. Smell is sour cherries, some earthy aromas and green apple. Flavor is initially very tart and biting with some caramel malt presence that works its way through. Finish is sour, fruity and lingering. Body is medium with just enough carbonation.

Overall, this is a very good sour. Not my favorite style, but they are starting to grow on me.


M - Great mouthfeel, big and smooth with good carbonation, nice balance of sweet and sour. Has the heft of a 7% beer but quite drinkable.

O - Very good, particularly for an American interpretation, but not quite as standout for me compared to some other Flanders I've had.
