2014 version poured into snifter.

Pours a dark copper to burgundy. Some head but nothing much to speak of.

Nose is of vinegar and slight barnyard/horse blanket. Oh and my mouth is watering.

Much more pungent than I anticipated with a Flanders. Delicious but this packs a sour punch. Vinous with just a touch of caramel and slight residual sweetness. Much less sweeter than the typical Flanders Red.

I could easily put away a bomber of this. Simply amazing and I am glad I got to try this. I think I'll age the next version if I can find another just to see the difference.

I'm so excited to finally get my hands on this one! It has a gorgeous light brown look to it with lots of carbonation bubbles sticking to the sides of the glass and not really any head. I get the smell of green apple skin, tart cherries, and barnyard funk, which are pretty typical of the style, but then there's a sweet fruit juice smell also coming through. The taste is puckering all the way down with notes of cherry, plum, lemon and funky bread yeast. It finishes very sour, like a sip of apple cider vinegar, but it's highly carbonated to keep the palate refreshed.
