Extremely sour, typical Flanders flavor profile but a dry bitterness of bark. Not as pronounced as far as the red wine vinegar taste. One of the better Flanders I've tried

On tap at Naja's. Reddish-brown with little head and no lacing. Aroma of tart cherries, vinegar, and wood. Taste is similar with not too much puckering sourness, moderate carbonation, crisp mouthfeel, and a dry finish.

The oak really comes out in the aroma as this warms up, really fantastic. One of the best sours I've had to-date.
