Big thanks to MrKennedy for sharing. Reviewed from notes

Pours a burnished amber, largely clear with a very persistent just off-white head.

Intoxicating (ahem) marriage of Flanders Red and Belgian Strong. Sour cherry, marzipan, figs, woody tannins and mild hints of ethyl acetate.

Body is light and accommodating for the ABV. Jazzy carbonation leads it to a mellow mildly tart conclusion.

Just a fantastic beer and as good as I remember it from 15 months ago. Everything in near-perfect harmony.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Vigorous pour gives a few bubbles atop a light amber body, but not much else.

Smell - Wine barrel. Slight acetic aroma. Alcohol. Some sweet caramel malt comes through.

Taste - Sweet up front. Apple fruitiness. Acidic wine notes behind it. Fruity esters all over and wine flavors linger in the finish with a dry oakiness.

Mouthfeel - It's boozy, but less intense than I remember the regular version. Acidic components and sweetness balance very well. Low carbonation.

Overall - Complex and fascinating. Quite different from the original.
